Si Samrong Nightlife and a Ghost Restaurant

Who would have thought a ghost theme would make a good attraction for a small town like Si Samrong. Well, obviously the owner of this one sure did.

I’ve had a few people asking about the infamous Lao Khao recently. I did partake in a little on my last trip to Sukhothai and it is becoming a bit of a family tradition. I had no idea it was decanted in plastic bags from the local moonshine supplier though. Anyway, it does have a sweet taste, but it kicks like a mule, so I won’t be partaking in it like I did on my first experience 6 years ago.

Lao khao is literally rice liquor: an alcohol distilled from rice. It’s pretty strong, some say 120% proof and certainly causes a burning sensation. Only the most hardened of alcoholics in Thailand drink it straight and even mixed it’s generally consumed by the older men who have had years of experience of getting drunk. Rumour has it that lao khao makes up two-thirds of the alcohol consumed in Thailand.
