Bangkok beer festival

If Germany has its Oktoberfest, Bangkok has Novemberfest. November is the start of Thailand’s annual beer garden season, where tables and chairs are brought out onto the street and Singha, Chang, Heineken, and a welter of other beers are available on tap!

Although a nationwide affair, beer gardens are more prevalent in the Bangkok capital where they are setup virtually everywhere. You can get some pretty inexpensive deals on draught beers.

The best thing about the Beer Garden Festival is that, unlike in Germany, the beer garden season stretches right across the festive period, going on to mid-January. Key venues are shopping malls such as Central World Plaza on Ratchaprasong Junction.
