Guess what? I don't care!

If they used per capita income as part of the equation Bangkok would be way over the top.

In fairness though, a bottle of 100 Pipers whiskey is cheaper in Thailand than an equivalent bottle of 25 year old single malt scotch would be anywhere else in the world...

I'm in Oz and a 6 pack of all local beer is around $20. Ridiculous! But the wines are silly cheap 👍

 

 

Yes, wine was still a good buy last time I was there (2013), spirits expensive.

The old conspiracy theory; the Thai government was so connected at the hip to revenue generated by liquor or spirits manufacturers, as beer drinking was thought a threat to this revenue stream, excessive taxes were placed on it. That was back in the days of Mekong, Lao Khao, vs Beer Sing & Kloster. However it still works today in the age of Sangsom, 100 pipers Gilbeys vs Leo & Chang.

Many here don't live in Bangkok, and a reasonable, affordable lifestyle is easily available elsewhere in the country, without paying ridiculous inflated prices. 

obviously not on beer though eh. something that seems to be a huge staple in many a poster diet here on TV.

This is extremely groundbreaking research, very important. The researchers who conducted it should receive the Noble Price.

Beer lao dark is only 49 baht now in Tops, where do they get 149 baht from for a small bottle? one or two imports maybe.

Correct, the usual load of a bullshxx story.
