SMASHED! Pattaya Expats drink everyone else under the table (new poll reveals)

This blog has been provided by Dan About Thailand BLOG for Inspire.

I have always enjoyed a beer and having lived in Pattaya for over a decade I was spoiled for choices of where to grab some light refreshments after a hard days work. I have cut back on my consumption over the last few years to no more than 10 bottles a week, but compared to the UK average of 3.8 bottles a week it still averages high.

But how does it compare to expats in Thailand’s average? In conjunction with Thaivisa.com I put together the ‘Great Beer Survey for Expats in Thailand’ and 692 respondents later the results were in – and I must say, by comparison, I look like a teetotaler!

I was taken back by some of the results, for example 7% of expats said they drink more than 50 bottles a week (wait until you find out Pattayans figure) and 27% said they drink everyday. So, over 1 in 4 of us enjoy a beer everyday!

In the UK 1 in 5 people now are teetotal, whilst 1 in 10 Expats in Thailand, according to this survey at least, also abstain from alcohol.

Don’t also make the assumption that the big drinkers are the retired or those living ‘up country’ either, as there was no correlation to any of these factors. Expats, whoever and whoever you are, have similar consumption patterns, unless, of course, you come from Pattaya…

Pattaya Expats in a league of their own

You will always find a drinking partner in Pattaya!

64% of the 118 Pattaya respondents to this survey said they drink a beer at least 3 times a week with almost 1 in 3 saying they have a beer every day (versus expat average 1 in 4).

14% said they drink more than 50 bottles of beer a week with almost half admitting they consume at least 20 beers a week, well above the suggested maximum of 14 beers a week suggested by UK medical officers.
