BBB Info: St. Patrick in Bangkok
St. Patrick's Day, this year on 17. March 2017, is a public holiday in Ireland and Northern Ireland. The day commemorates St. Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland.
But St. Patrick's Day is celebrated in more countries than any other national festival. The Irish diaspora around the world feasts especially in Great Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand with public parades and festivals. They wear green attire and shamrocks.
Many gay groups use this day to take part in the parades and show their presence.
In Bangkok you can celebrate St. Patrick's Day at BBB Inn. Wear green or bring some three-leaved shamrock and enjoy a free welcome drink of your choice all day long on the 17. March 2017.
Irish-Style you can celebrate at "Flann O’Brien’s Irish Pub". They will grant a free welcome drink only from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Join in some games and win prizes. The pub is just a short walk away from BBB Inn. Here is the way to go from BBB Inn to O'Brien's Irish Pub
The way back, with some pints of Guinness or Kilkenny in your belly and head, might be a bit longer.
