    Possibly no booze, depending on how royalist your local 'mom n pop' shop is. During my 1st year here, my neighbour still left everything on display but meticulously wrapped the bottles individually in plastic... :smile

    Is Friday an official government holiday?

    edit* I know that it is, but we do not have it off despite having every other government holiday off...

    Ah, sorry. My bad. For some reason I thought you were talking about this Friday. It is a government holiday BUT it is not a bank holiday (not recognized by the Bank of Thailand - has to do with the Financial Institutions Business Act B.E. 2551). That could be the reason why you don't have it off.

    EXTRA: Link to official bank holidays for 2559
