The President of the Patong Entertainment Business Association, Weerawit Kreuasombat, told the Phuket Express. This is illegal because selling alcohol in foam boxes must be banned from vendors or pop-up style alcohol booths. The Bangla Road is a public road and one cannot sell alcohol on the road. After the issue was brought up by Patong officials, there was a video of a woman selling beer in foam boxes on the Bangla Road. The female vendor told the local government that selling alcohol without a license was illegal but she took off her clothes apparently to protest the officials warning.
