    hi, folks. just wondering about adult beverages in thailand. we'll be in bangkok and hua hin (somewhat sheltered in a hillside spa) for almost 2 wks. hubby doesn't drink drink, but I do--not particularly a beer fan--mostly wine, but I understand there's some kind of issue w/wine in the country--quota etc?
    so, if I don't want to drink beer, but happen to like vodka--what is the local version of that colorless, nearly tasteless fluid? just curious!

    try this site...

    <a href="http://www.thaiwebsites.com/smoking.asp" target="_blank">http://www.thaiwebsites.com/smoking.asp</A>

    a little more...

    Thais love their Scotch whisky too. 100 Pipers is the preferred Scotch of most of the gentlemen I met, but Johnny Walker and Chivas Regal are also highly coveted. 100 Pipers sells for about 380 Baht for one half a liter. Because of it’s price it is not drank all the time, but when it is sipped in the neighborhood, you might as well through the cap away, because the sit-down Scotch session is not over until the bottle is empty. Scotch is served here over ice and topped with Singha soda water. Once again, nobody drinks it straight from the bottle

    I just returned from a 3 week vacation in Thailand so I thought I would chime in on this subject. I am not a "hard alcohol" drinker but my wife is. She loved the Thai whisky and rum, both rice based. The major brands are Maekhong and Sang Som, both sweeter than vodka. You normally don't drink these straight and most Thai's mix with Soda (coke, sprite). You can get other alcohols from around the globe there, but we figured, while in Rome....

    The thai stuff is MUCH cheaper that any other hard alcohols.

    ChrisSquared--thank you both--I particularly liked knowing about the no-sale hours and the local hooch brands
    The link thaiwebsites.com is a new one for me--I even found a cooking class (in case it rains cats and dogs)
