Sit n’ Sip: 5 Bangkok Beer Gardens You and Your Friends Should Be At This Winter

Sit n’ Sip: 5 Bangkok Beer Gardens You and Your Friends Should Be At This Winter

It’s that time of the year again, when no matter where you look, a beer garden is just in sight. Some say it’s because of the colder weather that makes people want to come out and have a good time, while others say it’s just the festive season and the New Year’s celebrations are just around the corner. Organizers of all sorts arrange to have their brands placed near shopping malls and open spaces in and out of town for people to bring their friends for a good time. However, the sheer volume of these beer gardens can be overwhelming, as there are only so many free days in December and we want to use them wisely.

Here are 5 beer gardens not listed in any particular order that we’d like to recommend to you and your friends to check out before the end of this year.
