Chang or Singha?

I am a beer loving Aussie going to Phuket for the fist time. This will divide I am sure.

What is the difference between Chang and Singha?

I have been to Bali a few times are either close to Bin Tang?

Singha is easy drinking like Bintang, I like it best followed by Leo then Chang. they are all drinkable with none tasting bad.

Kudah Putih is not so good from Indonesia and would fall below the above named.

Hi Paul

My husband is beer lover too. He used to drink singha but ever since they have brought out Chang beer now his friends call him " master Chang" as he is only drink Chang. Sorry I can't help you out with the differences as I don't drink beer married to one I think is bad enough lol.

Chang is cheaper but I like Singha (has a better classier taste)

However when your hot & thirsty anything cold goes down well!!

for what it's worth, i was there in feb and was told by a bar owner that there is an ingredient in Chang (cannot remember) that is not too good. Singha was fine (and cheap) especially at 7/11's - supermarkets.

When I first went to Thailand I used to drink Singa, but last year I tried Chang and liked it. Can't wait for June to have a few more Changs.

a matter of personal preference. Try both.

Personally, I guessed the words of my close Thai friend got to me- Chang gives me headache.

Good one Tommo.

Oh yes, remember to bring your stubbie holder/pouch. I bought quite a few in my visits to Australia.

I think, from memory, that Chang has a higher alcohol content, hence, more chance of changover's?

Anyone confirm>
