Thank God i don't drink,something else to worry about,

the price of beer,while i only worry about the price of

potatoes and onions. CHEERS

regards worgeordie

I usually  get my onions from Makro which are cheap but recently bought at the market and also Big C.... Wow,  10-15 baht for one onion,  I was shocked how much they are elsewhere from Makro.

It's common knowledge that tourist bars (every bar on Loi Kroh is a tourist bar) charge more than Thai bars.  If you drink in a bar where western customers are a small minority and the staff speaks very little English, the prices will be approximately half the tourist bar prices.  Even the Pretty bars, where you pay extra for the ambience, are cheaper than Loi Kroh bars.

But you can't take the bar staff home with you.

 

Nope because they are bar staff and not hookers who are in the red-light area of cities.

Then you fall into the second category, people who dont pay a monthly TV subscription. I used to do just the same. Had no TV at home, wanted to see a football game and would go to Tha Chang (where the Thai boys go) have fun company all around and think it cheap for 2 hours at 150B for 2 beers (long time ago). 

 

   Yes, I dont have a television ( Well, I do have one in my room, just never switched it on)

Now its 450 Baht for three beers in two hours .

Its quite funny really , when the beers were 75 Baht , I used to go out for a night and easily spend 1000 Baht , now the beers are 150 , I just take 300 Baht out with me .

     A few years ago when the exchange rate was better and Changs were 75 Baht , that was the equivalent to 1 Pound 50 .

    Now its nearly 4 Pounds

If I am going to pay those sorts of prices I might as well go and have a drink at the Hilton.

Hilton does not serve large bottles and charges little more than 150 plus a service charge plus VAT 😉

 

150 will get you a bottle of water or a glass of coke

Beyond my price range .

I just have to sort out 40 year old horny grandmothers on a freebie basis ......................OK , Im being a bit economical with the truth , they do appreciate a few hundred Baht  , but, but , they appreciate love and affection .....................and a right good seeing to

3 pages of moan , winge, carp.

Basically about a bar in a city centre that is charging 100 baht more than the cost price of a bottle of beer.

Welcome to Thai Visa Forums.

 

Been a long time since I visited Thailand.  We used to hang out at my BIL's house and just send a couple kids up to the corner store on a mini-bike to buy our beer.  About every half-hour.  Cheap and convenient.  With today's beer prices, I'd have to cut my vacation short by a week.
