Alcohol consumption isn’t sort of a taboo anymore in India, however, it’s still quite hush-hush in certain circumstances and at many places. Though the legal age limit for purchasing and consuming alcohol in India is 18, many youngies above 18 can still be subjected to ‘thrown out of the house’ kind of punishments if they’re caught consuming alcohol, probably until the time they are married. There have also been instances where young adults above the legal age weren’t allowed to have alcohol in pubs without age proof just because they ‘looked’ under 18. But did you know that there are certain countries which actually do not have a minimum legal age for drinking? Here are 9 such countries:

1. Armenia

No, there isn’t any law regarding the purchasing and drinking of alcohol in Armenia. When it comes to boozing, Armenia is quite chill. The law doesn’t restrict anyone to buy alcohol here. Also, this restaurant in Delhi serves some delectable Armenian dishes.

2. Djibouti

Most of the drinks at Djibouti come from France and alcohol prices here can be really heavy on the pockets. But the country doesn’t have any law stating the legal drinking age.

Macau is called the Macao Special Administrative Region and it falls under the People’s Republic of China. The country has its own legal, financial and other systems, which are different from the rest of China. And there’s no age bar for purchasing alcohol.

Thanks to its stunning natural beauty, Vietnam attracts a large number of tourists from all parts of the world. And there’s no legal drinking age for anyone here. Also, guess what, pubs remain open here 24*7.
