in Pattaya there was a hotel with a rooftop pool with a bar. you had to book at least the day before for their 'private party' on dry days you got tickets for buffet and 2 drinks.

Restrictions of alcohol in late October

Post by OldMan_SE » Fri Aug 18, 2017 5:47 pm

We are a group of people planning to go to Huahin late October. Now I have heard a rumour about restrictions in selling alcohol and that bars will be closed in 9 days from the 23 October.
This is due to the late kings death in some way.

Does anybody has som insight in this that you can share?
I understand that theese kind of restrictions have been tried before but with no real effect.

Shall we be worried?

What do you mean "in some way". Do a simple search on google and educate yourself on when the funeral will take place. This will be one of the biggest and most important event for the Thai population so expect heavy restrictions.

You have to understand that the govt does not wish Foreigners to drink during these days.
You can, of course, make your own arrangements, buying beer or liquor beforehand and relax at your hotel.
A few back-street bars or bars out of town, where Thai people drink, may be open, but they are no fun.

There is nothing on the internet at the moment that I can find indicating that the funeral period of October 25 to 29 will be dry days. The Gov. has said the ceremonies won't disrupt tourism to any great extent, but that doesn't mean there won't be an announcement closer to the time banning alcohol on some or all of the above dates, or if individual establishments will not sell out of respect. The only advice I can give at the moment is to stay tuned to Thai news for any updates as we get closer. Pete :cheers:

By the way, this may not be of any interest, but all the popular Bar girls will take the opportunity to visit their family in the Issan villages.

This was the advisory issued by the government. Oct 26th is a Public Holiday. Read into 'hospitality businesses' what you like as it's not defined.

For the period of the Royal Cremation, we would like to inform all visitors to Thailand that they can continue with their travel plans as normal. All transportation, banks, tourism and hospitality businesses across Thailand will be operating as usual.

Yes my bad, I should have googled first before I posted. Sorry for that and no intention to be disrespectful.


After getting the info regarding the reason I do understand that it will be a special time and that respect must be paid due to the funeral period.

Thank you all for your input.

[Mod Edit] oakdale, if you need to discuss golf, we have a golf forum set up just for that purpose. Comment deleted.

The moderators have locked the thread about the arrangements for the coming solemn events===this is quite understandable. Many HHAD posters are only concerned about how their social life will be affected. So I am re-opening this "polite" tread. No editorializing, just the open/closed facts.
I understand that Oct 13 will be a holiday---my guess is that this will be a dry day. Correct?

Last year it wasn't, so why this year ? Maybe bars will close but alcohol will be available in shops.

Guys, can you please stop discussing this event. Notification will be given in the correct thread when it is known what is happening.

Nobody knows yet, and any discussion would be no more than speculation.

There are so many rumors about which days alcohol sales are stopped in Thailand during October 2017.
Have someone who owns a bar, restaurant or likly received information from the authorities on what days it is not allowed to sell alcohol and can give me an answer.
Grateful for answers. :-)
( I have try google but can't find anything that can be trusted)
