    Wan Awk Phansa?

    Does anyone have information as to bar closures on Phuket for Wan Awk Phansa (OCT 27)?
    This was never a dry day before, but it was announced to be this year.

    Bars definitely were closing in Pattaya past midnight into 27th and may not open till after midnight between 27 & 28

    Bangkok only heard "the word is"
    Phuket no info.

    Any info greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for the help.
    Looking forward to learn when bars open tonight.
    Before midnight? Midnight? Not al all?

    About Wan Awk Phansa and bar closure;
    It has "never" been before, but was announced at the end of 2014 as a new addition to the existing list that included 4 Buddhist days and Father's Day. Father's Day seems to be treated very different in different regions.

    Long Gun soi Cowboy is definitely closed tonight, so I guess that applies to all of Soi Cowboy, though Crazy House seems to have it's own rules so you never know...

    The go-go's will start at regular time... then shut for sure at midnight or as soon as they see the police patrolling about... then open up again at 10 pm the next day with quieter than normal music and only serve soda and juice then move on to beer and spirits at the stroke of midnight.

    A significant difference between Patong and Pattaya.
    IIRC many bars in Patong do not open before 10PM with traffic starting around 11PM (Nicky used to appear about 10:30PM)
    In Pattaya GoGo's open no later than 8PM and beer bars long before then.
