Typical price of a large beer in HH bars?

Post by OldBoyRacer » Fri Feb 09, 2018 9:26 pm

After a few visits now to Thailand, I am a bit dismayed at the expense of a cold beer.

Ok, one can get soup noodles for 50bht on a small Soi, but a bar beer can be 120bht in Bkk.

As a comparison, my local in Manchester, ok, a Sam Smiths bog standard boozer with no Sky Sports, beer farts smell, and no eye-candy it is 90bht or £2.10.

Any cheaper in HH?

Thanks.

If price is your only criteria. Goto 7/11, get beer from freezer, sit on outside steps and drink it-- about half the cost you describe. But Bar at soi88 food plaza in HH only a little more.

It's strange that Chang and Singha can be bought cheaper in the UK than here!
In Tesco 4 large ones for 6 quid which makes it 60+ baht a bottle.

In BKP you get a large Chang for 55 baht. That is a good deal if you ask me.

You have to remember that Hua Hin is the Brighton of Thailand with prices to match. If you were to go “up north” to Isaan then you would find cheaper places to live, eat and drink.

In the bintabaht area (main bar area in HH) you usually get a bottle beer for 80 baht! 60 baht if its happy hour.
And in the after hours area they go for 100 baht!
If you find a bar that serves draft beer, they usually are cheaper :) :cheers:

Sorry the OP is asking about LARGE beers and you have quoted for Small beers !!
but large beers outside of central downtown can be had up Soi88 for example for around 80Bht and in many small eating places outside of town,

If the beer was from a freezer he'd have to lick it....
