PHUKET: The series of major public holidays next weekend will bring a ban on the sale of alcohol for two consecutive days and see all major government offices close for a four-day weekend.

 

The auspicious Buddhist holidays Asarnha Bucha Day and Khao Phansa (Buddhist Lent), also called “Vassa”, will be observed next Friday and Saturday (July 27-28), respectively.

 

As both are major religious holidays, the sale of alcohol is banned across the nation on both days.
