Trip to Thailand: your complete guide.
Thailand is the tourist center of southeast Asia. Most people entering the region fly to Bangkok as a base for their travel to southeast Asia. Thailand has lush forests, famous beaches, world-class scuba diving, delicious food, friendly and cheap prices, my favorite country so far! I’ve been in this country since 2005, where I’ve lived for two years and always seemed to be pulled back. This is an easy country to travel to, where you can meet a lot of other people. You’ll never be alone! This country is a good place for backpackers. Everything is convenient. However, there are still many remote destinations away from people and prices. In general, Thailand speaks for itself. When you hear its name, you think of beaches, beauties, jungles and food. Your ideas are in stock.
Typical Thai expenses.
Home – Thailand is cheap, although the north is much cheaper than Bangkok and the southern islands. You can find cheap hotels, 300 baht per night in the city, 200 baht per night in the countryside, but in big cities like Chiang mai and Bangkok, rooms start at about 400 baht per night. On the island or better, air-conditioned rooms are expected to pay 600 baht a night. The cost of a basic bungalow is the same. The hotel starts at 1,350 baht per night and rises from there. The island’s large resort starts at 1,700 baht a night, with bungalows on the beach. The country’s increasingly extensive hostels range from 100 to 150 baht per night. There are more and more abian in Thailand. Many cities have good choices. A Shared room starts at 350 baht per night, while a full apartment starts at about 700 baht per night. Chada Guesthouse (Bangkok), Julies (Chiang mai), Kodchasri B&B (Chiang mai), Pooh’s (ribei), greenhouse (kauai) are my favorite places in this country.
Food – Thai food is very cheap. Street food costs as little as 20 baht, but on average, if you want something real, you’ll spend about 35 to 50 baht per meal. If you stick to local street food, you can eat 120 to 170 baht a day. Most western meals (hamburgers, pizzas, pasta, etc.) cost between 170 and 340 baht, although western restaurants can be more expensive. Because food is cheap, there’s no point buying food unless you want some pre-made salad or fruit. Visit each city guide to learn about specific food recommendations for each place!
Transport – like everything in Thailand, transport is cheap. The cost of local buses is only 8 baht per baht. Bangkok’s subways and light rail trains run at 15 to 50 baht per journey, while taxis typically run at 60 to 100 baht per flight. Dudu car is not measured, generally more expensive, the cost of each ride is 100-235 baht. Motorcycle taxis (orange vests) are available at 35 baht across the country. Trains are cheap all over the country – trains cost only 50 baht a day. The overnight train started at 575 baht, with no air-conditioning in the second-class cabin. Travel to and from the islands is between 250 and 475 baht. (note: in general, take bus/cruise packages and pay separately.) A coach is a good way to travel around the country. For example, buses from Bangkok to Chiang mai cost 550-700 baht, and buses from Bangkok to phuket cost 500 to 1,000 baht.
Activity – a day trip costs 500 to 1,200 baht, depending on the activity. Hiking in the jungle costs 1,000 to 1,685 baht a day. Remember, if you’re with a team, you’ll have more bargaining power. Most parks and national museums cost between 50 and 100 baht (non-thais, you always have to pay more). Thailand’s popular PADI certification program costs about 10,000 baht (but usually includes accommodation).
Recommended daily budget – baht / $25 to $30, 900-1080 (note: this is the budget proposal, assuming you live in a hotel, eat a little, most of the food cooking or eating cheap street food, and use the local transportation. You can use the following budget tips to reduce the number, but if you live in a more popular place or spend more time eating out, the estimated number is higher!

Save money skills
The easiest way to save money in Thailand is to live like a local. Take the local bus, eat street food, and taste the local beer. The average standard of living in Bangkok is below 7,750 baht per month, while in the countryside it is below 7,750 baht. If you stay in a cheap hotel and eat street food, you can spend 335 baht a day. Eat street food – when it comes to street food, don’t be afraid to eat it. It’s safe – sometimes even safer than restaurant food. If not, the baht would not crowd into food stalls every day. You’ll find the best food in Thailand on the street, and you’ll spend a fraction of what you pay at a restaurant. Enjoy the good times – many happy times in Thailand have half-price wines and 2-1 specials. Buy beer at age 7-11 -elevens are ubiquitous in Thailand, where drinking can save a lot of money. The 7-11 beer costs about 35 baht, while the same beer costs 100 to 170 baht in restaurants or bars. Don’t book any Tours before you arrive – would you like to take a cooking class? Zipper? Hiking in the jungle? Diving? Wait until you arrive in Thailand and order anything. Travel agencies are all over the tourist area, hoping to sell. It’s time to refresh our negotiating skills. You can buy these trips online before you arrive, but you’ll have to pay more! Accommodation is Thailand’s economic and social choice. There are many options, especially in Thailand’s real tourist attractions. Get some earplugs and be prepared to save a lot of money! Couchsurf – nothing is cheaper than free sleep. Couch surfing will connect with locals, who will not only give you a free place to stay, but also become a local guide who can introduce you to some interesting websites.
