Travel Forum - TravelPod > > Sri Lanka
Just to let everyone know the next few Poya dates in Sri Lanka. Poya Days are once a month (Full Moon) and mean that alcohol is not served/sold and consumption is restricted to non public areas, eg your room.

I am sure many people will comment on ways around this day, but it is a part of the Sri Lanka Culture and should be observed on -

29 January, 28 February, 29 March, 27 April
Every Poya day(fullmoon day) bar are closed in all around Sri Lanka.
But you can buy and keep Previous day like locals do.
