You will find the prices a lot more expensive compared to Thailand as alcohol is heavily taxed.Langkawi is duty free so prices there are a lot better.
From memory around 10-12RM ???
I am not sure of the price of a stubby but the long necks at most hawker centres and coffee shops are about RM15 on average.
As mentioned booze is very expensive compared to Thailand. About double.
Agree with the above posters and what is it all us Aussie Men love a beer!. The best prices can sometimes be found at a happy hour , and some of the bars that are located on the edge of The Pavilion have a bucket of coronas or other beers for a price that is quite good value. Otherwise , yes you will see that prices compared to Thailand are high ,but not as high as Champagne prices when compared to Australia. Supermarkets often sell a frothy or 2 and many of the well known brands are there and then take them back to the mini bar and woolah , you have your own little little bar!. Having a frothy at one of them small bars at the Petaling st night Market is always an fun way to pass the evening. Have a great trip.
Sean I actually did have a "frothy" or 2 at Petaling St with MK a year or more ago whilst the wife was engaging in some retail therapy. We had an enjoyable "few" drinks c[_] and he had to ride the motorbike home afterwards.
Hopefully we will catch up again next month when Im in KL.
Fantastic Tommo. It really is a good way to spend a night going to Petaling St and if they wives are shopping it makes it a good compromise. Also fantastic that you met up with MK. To put a face to the name would be good. Hopefully local knowledge and a motorbike that knew its way home , got him there. Hope you guys catch up next month in KL and enjoy a few more ice cold frothys.
Cheers for info lads ave a good one
I can help you with this one - yes, them pints are pretty expensive (relatively i.e), and even if you pick them up from supermarkets, they will cost you MYR 8 to start with. The popular brands are even higher.
