    14 Feb?

    What was the situation concerning bar closure/alcohol in Phuket on Makha Bucha Day (14 Feb)?
    In Pattaya it was definitely a day of closure (except a few serving "tea").
    Also any info regarding Bangkok is appreciated.

    As it's only 8.17 AM it's too early to tell.
    Bars in Kamala have been ordered to close.
    Sipping from the Fountain of Youth that is Thailand.

    Feedback whan known would still be appreciated
    As some of you may know I try to maintain a database of these stats and want to make it as accurate as possible.

    That is the normal order that I always have read.
    In Pattaya Secrets bar has reported that they were shut down 00:01 on the 14th and allowed to open 00:01 on the 15th, but they will not be opening until Breakfast time on the 15th.
    The forced shutdown just past midnight on the 13th was a surprise to me.

    That is about the typical enforcement year over year.
    What happened last night in Pattaya seemed very unusual.
    I just read a post that just past midnight police went around Soi LK and asked for all bins to be closed.
    Apparently people were allowed time to drink up.
