Alcohol sales will be banned nationwide for almost a whole weekend as the referendum vote is scheduled to take place on Sunday.

The sale of alcohol at shops, bars, restaurants and hotels will be banned from Saturday at 6pm until midnight on Sunday, which basically means Monday morning. This is in accordance with the 2016 Referendum Act, which forbids the sale or giveaway of alcohol from 6pm the night before polling day.

So basically, you can’t go out drinking this weekend. Those who violate the law will face up to six months in prison and/or a fine of THB10,000.
