BUYING BEER & ALCOHOL IN THE 7/11!
These are the main beers sold in Thailand and prices are for the large (Ghetto) bottles!
Chang Beer 35 baht - The cheapest beer but not the worst I loved it also sponsors of Everton FC.
Leo Beer 37 baht - Not as good as Chang and more expensive goes flat quick,try it.
Singha Beer 45 baht - Most expensive, up market Thai beer really quite good.
Tiger Beer 55 baht - Imported from China as far as I know, yeah its good.
Heinekin 80 baht - Why go to Thailand and drink imported beers.
ALCOPOPS (Poof Juices)
Not nice at all some wine spitzer things arent bad but Nite and Spy are boke. Can still get imported breezers or whatever.
MEKHONG (Traditional Thai Rum)
Cheap, 40% alcohol and actually quite good. Well known for use in buckets and is known by the Thais as a labourers drink because it's so cheap. Ten glass bottle costs 150 baht half bottle costs 80 baht.
Fondest memory: Try a ten glass bottle of Mekhong (Sangsom) with a 1.5 litre of coke and bottle of red bull and bag of ice you'll be spending less than 200 baht.
Well worth it i guarantee.
Favorite thing: Thai beer is very good and suprisingly strong. I had Beer Chang and found it to be the best beer Thailand had to offer. It is widely available and fairly inexpensive. Try one when you get to Bangkok. I liked it so much I bought a t-shirt.

A premium lager beer brewed from the finest ingredients, Singha is a full - bodied 100% barley malt beer that contains notes of lemons, flowers and cinnamon.
Favorite thing: Bangkok is hot and humid and can really get to you after a long day of sightseeing. Make sure you take plenty of breaks and drink plenty of local beer. Singha and Chang are the most popular, and both will quench your thirst just fine. They have some other brands, but they look kind of sketchy. Just stay away from the Thai whiskey... NASTY!
