How The Bangkok Locals Get Their Drink On!

Ever thought about drinking from a plastic bag? Sounds ridiculous right?

It’s actually pretty great! And thank you to Bangkok for showing it to me!

Many drink stalls and carts in Bangkok (usually only on the street) will serve you fresh mixed tea and coffee drinks, sometimes sodas, in plastic bags.

First, the vendor fills the bag with crushed ice, then mixes up your drink and pours it in. Usually any drink like this will cost about 15Baht or about $0.50USD.

The plastic bag makes it really easy to carry around… although I think most vendors put too much ice and not enough drink in. That’s the Bangkok way I suppose.

If you want to try this, get the sweet iced coffee Oreleang (I love this) or some black tea that looks orange. both are refreshing!
