Food in Thailand is also cheap. A lot of meals will run you around 30–50 baht – depending on whether you are in a city or the countryside. Serving portion is also small here, so you may find yourself eating more than 3 times per day.
- 4 meals per day – 120–200 baht per day
- Estimated food costs per month – 3,600–6,000 baht.
- If you are in, or nearby a more touristy area you may want to add an extra 1,500 if not more to the above total. Due to the fact that the costs in these areas are adjusted to accommodate the large number of tourists, these costs which the Thai people inflate allow them to generate slightly more income.
Total Cost Per Month for Living in Thailand:
- Food – 3,600–6,000
- Accommodation – 3,000–6,500
Total: 6,600 to 12,500 baht per month
This total obviously does not include expenses for any additional activities, transport to and from these activities or drinks you may purchase. Therefore the above mentioned additional spending money surplus we recommend.
