7 eleven is #1

7 eleven is my favorite store in Thailand. There's one every couple of blocks in Thailand. I'm not sure how this store got so popular in this country but I could make a guess.

Here are the reasons why this is my most comforting local establishment:
1. They always have cold water (you'd be surprised how many times I've had to grab a warm bottle from inside a fridge in this country)
2. They always have cold air conditioning (it's colder than other stores)
3. Their merchandise (water and ice cream) is no more expensive than mom and pop shops

7 eleven is like a haven oasis in the middle of a desert. It's great just to go inside and soak in the air con.

Why is 7 eleven named that way again? I don't remember although I know I looked it up 10 years ago.
