The picture above demonstrates exactly why so many people come to Thailand and go on a non-stop drinking binge. I just went up the road to the 7-11 to pick up a few things, including four big cans of Heineken, four cans of tonic, and one bottle of Gilbey’s gin. Know how much it came up to? THB 620. That’s roughly US $20. Twenty bucks for four beers AND a bottle of gin!? And mixers too? All of which were imported? Where else in the world can you get so much booze for so little dough? I tell you, if you ever want to go somewhere and drink yourself to oblivion… Thailand is the place to do it!
