Laos top ranking alcohol consumption in ASEAN !!!
Permalink   


I am shocked and disappointed, are Lao people the drunkard of SEA? Based on the ranking, Lao people drink on average 6.91 liters of pure alcohol per year (2003) and per capita, that's more than any other South East Asian or Asian country, except for South Korea and Japan. In SEA, the Lao followed by the Thai, are the biggest alcohol drinkers. Is it because of our tradition with Laou Hai or Laou Thô that we enamore so much in combination with our so many annual bacis and festivals? I don't know how accurate is their estimation.

1st: Luxemburgh (15.56 liters per capita)
9th: Germany (11.99 liters)
17th: France (11.43)
27th: Russia: (10.32)
43rd: USA (8.44)

51st: South Korea (7.87)
54th: Japan (7.59)
61st: Laos (6.91)
87th: Thailand (5.59)
91th: China (5.20)
-
110th: Philippines (3.51)
113rd: North Korea (3.26)
119th: Mongolia (2.83)
128th: Singapore (2.17)
143rd: Cambodia (1.48)
156th: Malaysia (1.06)
160th: Vietnam (0.85)
171st: Myanmar (0.33)
176th: India (0.29)
188th: Indonesia (0.09)

Political talk, dear fellows, you see the advertisings against tobacco everywhere but nothing against the alcoholic brewery while both are dangerous for health and affect our lungs, liver and our brain that lead to create road accidents, dog fightings... it is to say we have two standards, government should crack down for both tobacco and alcoholic brewery but, but we ought to understand the government too that the more Beer Lao makes profit, the greater incomes for its butget coffers but we still have two standards 'cos the tobacco company pay not less tax than the Beer Lao co. but have no right to advertising...Hehehe !

US just 43rd? I'd have thought should be within the top 10. Luxembourgh is too small a "country" to even be included in the list, but i guess in terms of "drinekrs" over its population, they should rate very high. Indonesia down there below? Wikipedia should do some updating.

This is BS! the rating is based on the consumption/populations. It should be consumption/populations + tourists...we are small in term of population compared to other countries listed so i said we are doing good at #61.

yes we have Lao Hai Lao Tho. So? other country have wisky, brandy, cognac, wine, vodka etc..... you name it.....LOL.

Nangdarling.

 I think you've had too much to drink. How many fingers am I holding up? How many times did you just repeat yourself?

IF JUST ADULTS OR WORKING PEOPLE DRINK IT'S THEIR BUSINESS, BUT EACH TIME I VISIT LAOS, ALONG THE MEKONG RIVER, I SAW YOUNG AND PARTICULARLY YOUNG STUDENTS DRINKING, AND THEY WERE SUCKED IN THE SORT OF THAI MUSIC, THAI SONG IN KARAOKE MOOD, THEN IT'S A WORRY AND PROBLEMS. WHEN YOUNG STUDENTS DON'T STUDY BUT SIT AND DRINK BEER THEN LAOS IS A COUNTRY WITH A BIG BIG PROBLEM.

The students drink Beer Lao cause they know they have no future. There won't be no jobs or anything like that waiting for them when they graduate. Might as well drink it up now and have fun while they're young.

At least the girls can become Beer Lao girls or something like that so they might as well learn to pour drinks now so they can prepare for their future job.
