Thailand famous buckets

Hi all

Are the Thailand buckets still sold in Chiang Mai, BK, Phuket, Islands etc.?

Am I correct in saying this is a bucket full of vodka, red bull and a soda? Also how much are they?

I haven't seen them in Phuket or Bangkok but I don't go to the clubs where they would sell them. The attached link is only a couple of months old and says "It’s literally a bucket (like the ones kids take to the beach) filled with ice, M150 (a Thai version of Red Bull which is heavy on the ephedrine), a can of soda, a 300 ml bottle of liquor and 3 or 4 straws. Total cost: 200 baht/$US6" Good luck.

Or, in place of the liquor, it might be some home made alcoholic concotion which may or may not send you blind. Enjoy.

In Bangkok your best bet would be Khao San Road, Phucket would be Bangla Road Patong and I have not been to CM for years so don't know. At 200 Baht the alcohol is almost certainly not vodka but lao khao a local Thai "moonshine" distilled from rice.

Common sense and big city wits of even a not so intelligent person, would not accept a beverage they did not see opened in front of them.

UP2U .... but keep your insurance current, and fill out the 'next of kin' notification line in detail, on you embassy form.
