    Heineken cheaper in England than in Thailand

    I was amazed (amazing thailand) to find that heineken, which is produced in thailand and england, is cheaper when eating out in england.

    My local restaurant in england charges 2.09 for a pint, whereas the restaurant in thailand i just ate at (nothing fancy) charges 120 baht for a 640 ml bottle which works out to be a bit more per ml.

    It is a bit cheaper in thailand in the shops. 330 ml cans in england work out at 88p whereas in thailand they are about 75p.

    Right, that's it, I'm moving back to England. Although, accommodation is much cheaper in Thailand.

    No - just noticed a deal at Tesco's today 24 for 15 for the 440ml.

    Pro-rata that makes 330ml 47p a can!

    My wife wants to stay in the UK! After 25-years in Thailand that would be a stretch, but I can see her point!

    It's cheaper in the UK because anybody with taste buds would buy bitter.

    In Thailand there's no competition. You've got shit lager or shit lager.
