Fancy a cheap beer, head to Thailand

Fancy a cheap beer, head to Thailand

Thailand was recently named to British company Travelex’s list of the ten cheapest places in the world to buy a beer.

Now, to be fair, they only surveyed 32 countries that are popular places for Brits to vacation and took into account the average price of a local pint of draft beer in a bar.

Their data placed Thailand at 6th cheapest and clocked the average price of a pint of beer to be THB60 in the country. They must be taking into account island bars and places far outside Bangkok since we rarely see a pint of even mass-market Thai beer at less than THB90 in the city.

According to the collected data, the cheapest UK vacation spot to buy a pint is Bulgaria while, unsurprisingly, the United Arab Emirates was the most expensive.

Check out their full list below:
