Drinks in Singapore can be expensive, and that is not good


I go to bars and drink sometimes and most of the time, I always meet new people…sometimes foreigners. When I ask them how they find Singapore, they say that it is expensive. I feel sad when I her that because it is so true. Look at drinking establishments like bars and the like. First of all, rentals of the places are sky-high so the tenant has to charge a high-price for drinks and entertainment. And that is not the only thing. The taxes on liquor is quite high too. I remember when I was in bars in Australia for instance. You could get a pretty good house-pour bourbon and coke for a couple of bucks. Here in Singapore, you would never find a glass of bourbon coke at this price. To be honest, all this stems from the high rentals. Greedy landlords charging a premium for land and establishments…and the cost is invariably passed on to the consumer.
