The sneaky-sold drinks usually come in plastic cups. If you dont mind, its taste will be the same.
The majority of 'non-alcohol days' are not Buddhist related but are for other reasons - political, historical personages, tradition etc.
Thailand has no state religion (although the majority are Buddhist) and the constitution guarantees freedom of religion to all Thai citizens.
Deputy Spokesperson for the National Police Office, Pol Maj Gen Songpol Wattanachai, has ordered officers to stringently monitor against the sale of alcohol this Makha Bucha Day and let on police will be visiting entertainment venues, transport hubs and gas stations to actively inspect retailers. Checkpoints will be set up from midnight on February 21 to midnight of February 22 to check drivers for alcohol consumption and those found to be driving under the influence will face up to 6 months in prison and a fine of up to 10,000 baht or both.
