Come on you guys, nobody is going to stop drinking alcohol and tourists are not going to stop coming because the price of a bottle of beer goes up by 50 baht. If you drink you drink. Wise up

It'll go up. There's a couple of billionaires that need more money for them and their mates in high places.

The girls are much cheaper in Germany these days, the beer sure is, the saucages are much better, taxi's are very good and safe.

 

Thailand is far overpriced now and they even can't speak english. Ordered a cheeseburger set today in the MAC, had to say it 3 times and they still didn't know what i wanted.....what a shame..

yep.50 cents for half a pint of nice ankor beer in a bar is more like it

But do people seriously factor in the cost of beer when considering which country to live in?

Hi,
 
Sometimes a poster just hits it spot on like you have. The prices of beer in the country of Thailand is a nonsense.
 
You are now paying for sitting in a tacky table top bar in Bangkok, with a disinterested cashier and a filthy fan to cool the heat, playing copy movies screeching out from dying TV set the sum equivalent of 3 GBP for half of Lager. In a three star hotel at the reception bar it is now nearing 4.50GBP for half of lager!
 
I am astonished for this chemical crap they call lager!! That is 6 pounds and 9 pounds a pint!......... Are they mad. This is not a nightclub or a go go, providing entertainment, this is at 12 noon at smelly Patpong table top bar.
 
In the UK now, you can get all kinds of craft beers in Witherspoons and other bars at 2.50 GBP A PINT!!
 
I used to love having a few beers but you choke on it at these prices and then they stick a silver tray with your change on expecting a tip! In Vietnam and Cambodia, it is similar chemical rubbish but at least the price reflects that and it's cheap. The days of ' value for money ' in Thailand went out the window around 2006.

I'll suggest you get yourself out of Patpong at 12 noon

I like how - according to TV members - every proposition of the Thai government always is a risk for the tourism... :cool::biggrin:

 

Seriously, ithis could have an impact mainly on the sex-tourists that frequent the beer bars in the red-zones, and so it could be a good thing (IMHO) but even if Thailand would decide to globally forbid beer, there would be still millions of real-tourists willing to visit the country. :welcomeani:

What absolute nonsense. Impact on sex tourists. Sex tourists not come to Thailand because beer too expensive. This is a good thing. They may be the only ones (except for the hi-so's) that can afford it.

This is really welcome. I do really hope that it´s going to affect the end price for the customer.
Means all the powerdrinker that today can afford to drink 10 beer every day, will come down to the amount of half.
Sounds like there is a bright light at the end of the tunnel. Me, I will still drink my beer as usual. The small amount of one box a month can´t be bothered with a slight topup of price.
