Does anything really beat an ice cold drink on a hot, sunny day? NOPE. We're all about trying out new and exciting flavours when travelling, so keep your eyes peeled for these thirst quenchers on your next adventure...
Young Coconut Juice
In Southeast Asian countries like Thailand, travellers can drink coconut juice/water (not to be confused with coconut milk) directly from a young coconut. You may see vendors selling coconuts in either white or green, hacking off the tops with a big knife and inserting a straw for you to drink. It is a natural source of electrolytes and is super refreshing on those hot summer days, plus is a total insta selfie winner.
Ca Phe Sua Da (Vietnamese Iced Coffee)
Need a caffeine fix that cools you down? Why not try a Vietnamese iced coffee, which is slow-dripped into an espresso cup filled with condensed milk, then poured over ice. With a tropical climate, travellers looking for a coffee fix that doesn’t amp up their internal temperature will turn to this concoction – it’s also very strong coffee so be prepared for a wake up call.
Boba (Milk Tea)
Many countries have their own variations of tea and coffee drinks, but who knew that adding tapioca pearls to a drink would make it so refreshing and fun to drink? Referred to as “bubble tea” or “pearl tea” in many countries around the world, boba originated in Taiwan in the 1980’s and is readily available in many Asian countries, containing small chewy balls made of tapioca starch and requiring a giant straw to drink out of. Boba isn’t limited to just milk tea either – you can also get the tapioca pearls in blended smoothies and fruit drinks.
