In Vietnam there is no minimum drinking age. I have no idea why, perhaps the legislatures in Vietnam decided that rather than dictate the lives of everyone telling them when they can drink, how much they should drink, how much fruit they should eat etc etc that its probably best to let the people decide. Now i know, as a British citizen myself that concept is very hard to understand – How can a government not interfere? Its a foreign concept i agree.

However, in the same way young pot heads head en mass to Amsterdam, or Virgins head to Thailand, well… I let Charlie have a Pinacolada(sp). There he is in the photo above getting legless on Bacardi, Pineapple juice and Coconut… Not really, he didn’t actually like it and as much as he was determined to finish it he was stopped in his tracks when i called it a day.
Still, i hope he remembers his first proper drink was sat on a beach surrounded by palm trees in Vietnam 🙂


Just a dad trying to live the dream with my kids.
