The street brewed local moonshine whiskey of choice throughout Bangkok is known as Yadong.
Where To Drink It: You can locate vendors selling Yadong in big glass jars usually with red lids, available on the side of streets. It’s best to bring your own bottle or fill up an empty energy drink bottle. Prices can range from 10 – 100 THB for a bottle of Yadong.
Thai iced tea, known as cha yen, is a sweet milky tea that goes down well when it’s hot and sweaty outside.
Where To Drink It: Any drink stall in Bangkok, you’ll see cans of carnation condensed milk at the cart.
Be aware that a lot of Thai drinks are made extremely sweet and even fresh juices are sweetened up with sugar. I used to not be a real fan, but after walking around and sweating all day, a shot of sweetness can be welcomed.
