Thailand Cocktails

Cocktail vans have become very popular in Pattaya, Thailand recently. They offer a nice relaxed outside place to hang out with your friends while you sip back a few cocktails...or more.

The average cocktail menu consists of around 100 different drinks. However, not all of the drinks come in the bucket size. That's where you really get the bang for your buck.

A cocktail drink can be quite expensive in the nicer gogos and clubs around town. Some even up to 220 baht (around $6). If you order a bucket cocktail in Pattaya you will be paying on average 230-250 baht. You end up with 4-5 delicious drinks for the price you'd pay for only 1 in a club. This hip van is located on Soi Buakhao.

Dragon Fruit (Pitaya)

Dragon fruit is seen everyday throughout Thailand. Any where there's a fruit vendor on the street, or a market...you'll see this fruit. I've only seen the red and white variety...never seen the yellow in Thailand yet. This fruit is actually native to Mexico and Central/South America, but is now grown in many Southeast Asian countries. Very easy to enjoy, a fruit vendor will slice it for you, or if you buy from a market all you have to do is quarter them and peel back the skin.

Thai Street Food

If you ever visit Thailand, please do not be afraid to try some food from the street vendors. Hands down the best food in the country for the price.

There's hundreds of choices out there. You can have everything from bugs, to rice, chicken, pig ears, fruit, vegetables, soup, etc.

The best thing though about this cheap and delicious food is that it's extremely healthy for you.
