Bangla Road –
A female beer vendor took off her clothes in protest after she was warned by officials for illegally selling alcohol on the Bangla Road in Patong.
Our previous story:
The Patong Entertainment Business Association (PEBA) President Mr. Weerawit Kreuasombat told the Phuket Express. “Selling alcohol in foam boxes by vendors or pop-up style alcohol booths must be banned as this is illegal. The Bangla Road is a public road and one cannot sell alcohol on the road.”
Meanwhile, after the issue was brought up by Patong officials, there was a video of a woman who was selling beer in foam boxes on the Bangla Road. Relevant municipality officials warned the female vendor that selling alcohol without a license was illegal but she took off her clothes seemingly to protest the officials warning.
She was in the middle of the Bangla Road where she did not care about many foreign tourists watching her and taking videos and photos.
It was not immediately clear if the woman would be charged by Patong police for the spirited one person protest of the new policy.
The vendor’s identity was withheld by Patong police.
