There are many expats in Buriram. Just pop into BigC or Makro any day of the week and you will see.

 

Best places to go for a chat would be Paddy's, London Steak (one opposite Isuzu in town and one opposite BigC) or the Harley Bar on the bypass. Not sure about coffee though. More likely beer.

Strange you should say that. Was walking down Soi Buakhow about 18.00 hrs. last evening and couldn't help feeling how much one misses out on the auld banter scene since I gave up the booze 18 yrs. ago....not being a "drinker" can be a definite disadvantage when it comes to the socialising scene.....in any part of the world...but particularly in Thailand for some reason methinks (maybe because of the gals).

   Don't get me wrong...if I hadn't given it up I wouldn't be around today to even notice this. Have had a life beyond my wildest dreams since the day my recovery started.

if you're around Big-C sort of 12-ish today drop in to London Steak.   You'll probably find me in there for a coffee and read.   Happy to meet and chat as the book will still be there tomorrow.   (And, no, I don't own / run / finance the place.)

As a non-drinker, you aren't missing much... drunks in bars are obnoxious and usually repetitive, saying the same slurred thing over and over... boring as hell... might be interesting if you are also drunk?? I don't know. 

Of course drunks can be obnoxious but the vast majority of people socialising in bars are not drunks.

One could just as easily make ( stupid) sweeping generalisations about non drinkers being boring , pious and priggish.

Yeah, you have to be drunk, too.  I don't drink, either, and have spent many an hour watching friends have outrageous fun while I become increasingly bored -- to the point that I kind of wish I liked booze, too.

some can be fun - some can be obnoxious and get into fights - some fall down and break bones, some end up passed out on the sidewalk... others spend life hours going to AA meetings every every day... I'll pass on the fun. There is fun elsewhere too. I have never been sorry that I don't drink but know many who are very sorry that they do drink... we are surely better off.

But, I only talked about drunks... when you twist the words then sure, anything can sound stupid.. I have friends who I really enjoy their company until they get drunk.
