Dates when no alcohol sold in Hua Hin

Postby Bazoo » Wed Mar 04, 2015 8:49 pm

Was in town tonight and due to a festival there was no alcohol.

Does anybody have a list of dates where no alcohol is the rule?

It seems that last night the police have started using entrapment.
Several groups, in civilian clothes, were visiting restaurants in and around HH. They would order drinks and if served, they identified themselves and the restaurant was given a hefty fine. Confirmed by the police station.

Out go the coffee mugs or hiding your bottle under the table.

Does that include alcohol being sold in shops or just bar closure?

You certainly won't be able to buy in the likes of Tesco, 7/11, Family Mart etc but 'Mom and Pop' shops will no doubt ignore the law.

Not that I intend to do so, but the notice says it's illegal to SELL alcohol today, but what if you went to a restaurant with your own bottle - is that illegal too?

I don't know the answer, but I went to the food court on a recent 'no sale' day, and there were quite a few that had taken their own.
