Bars close for holiest of Buddhist holidays

Friday, 15 June 2012 From Issue Vol. XX No. 24 By  Vittaya Yoondorn

As per law for every Buddhist holiday, Pattaya’s bars and nightspots closed for Visakha Bucha Day.  From Walking Street to Drinking Street, Third Road to Soi 6, the neon was dimmed, music hushed and beer taps dry. Even convenience stores posted signs informing unaware tourists that their holiday would be dry June 4.
