Thailand will soon experience two days when alcohol use is prohibited.

Alcohol sales will be prohibited nationwide on the two Saturdays of next month that are early voting day and election day, just in case intoxication leads voters in Thailand to mark the incorrect box.Between May 6 and May 7, as well as May 13 and May 14, no alcohol may be sold after 6 o’clock in the evening.

Two Saturdays in a row without drinking. The alcohol restriction, however, is applicable to every person who lives in the kingdom. Foreigners are not permitted to vote in the election.Everywhere, including bars, convenience stores, weddings, and even social gatherings, the sale or distribution of alcohol is prohibited. A six-month prison sentence and/or a fine of up to 10,000 baht are possible penalties for breaking the restriction.

Thailand’s election law also forbids the use of alcohol.

On Buddhist holidays such as Makha Bucha Day, Visakha Bucha Day, Asahna Bucha, Wan Khao Phansan, and Awk Phansa, the sale of alcohol is also prohibited in Thailand. A lunar calendar is used to determine the precise dates, which change annually.Strange alcohol laws are prevalent in Thailand. The Alcoholic Beverage Act, which was enacted by the military junta in 1972, prohibits the sale of alcoholic beverages from 2 to 5 p.m.

A prohibited practice in Thailand is promoting the sale of alcohol. Yesterday, a Thai man made news when Nonthaburi Provincial Court fined him 150,000 baht and sentenced him to a six-month prison term with a suspended term for publishing an online review and image of a craft beer in 2020. To get out on bond, the beer enthusiast had to pay an extra 150,000 baht.
