Learn Thai with Mod
Learning Thai made easy with Mod!
Our Thai lessons focus on “realistic Thai”, meaning sentences and usage that will make you sound like an actual Thai person rather than a formal and dull text book.

Bar girls on Phuket always use “chok dii” when drinking with farangs.

Another one I have heard (usually once things start getting a little crazy) is “Sood Soi!”. Literally, I believe it means “to the end of the lane”, or something to that affect (perhaps you can confirm this, Kru Mod?) and is accompanied by sculling your drink as quickly as possible. I’m not sure how well known or widely practised this is – some Thai friends had never heard of “Sood Soi”, but I certainly had a few crazy nights where this was said every few minutes!

Sawatdee ka Justin, thank you for sharing the new word with us. I never heard of the word ‘sud soi” in that sense before. I askedmy friends, and they never heard of it either. I will introduce this word to my friends next time we go for some drinks. It sounds cool! 🙂

Thanks for this lesson.
I think Choke dii is very often used in the bar scene and the agogos, I’ve heared it there many times in bangkok.
