Hi All,

I am traveling round SEA with my Boyf this summer (nov-feb) and will of course be attending the full moon parties and consuming many a bucket.
So my question is - is it possible/easy to get my buckets with diet coke or diet sprite (or anything sugar free really)? Im diabetic and while i can get away with drinking rather sugary drinks (just lading up on insulin) its something id really rather not do as it can be a bit hit and miss and generally can make me fall rather crap sick.png

Any help would be fab.

xoxo

I am pretty sure, you could find buckets with diet soda, but im not positive on the beach, they sell them just off the beach for sure...
The only reason i know this is because I am allergic to caffeine and was searching for caffeine free sodas...
have fun, full moon was awesome, if you could go up to tube in Laos as well it was great

Thai's often take Soda when drinking spirits- so there will be buckets with soda/sangsom(rum) or soda/mekong(whiskey)

A typical way thai's drink is to share a bottle of whiskey, they will have lots of ice in their glasses then whiskey topped with soda and finished with a dash of coke.
