Let me just say, no, that is not remotely possible. Not unless you live in a remote village, live in a tiny one-room apartment, only eat Thai food and spend nothing on entertainment or going out. You certainly could not travel on that. It is possible, however, to live comfortably in Thailand on less money than you would need in the US or Europe. As someone who has lived in the country for more than a decade, I can give you three possible budgets to show you what kind of lifestyle you might have. These budgets are based on the cost of living in Bangkok. That means, if you plan on moving to Hua Hin, Chiang Mai, Isaan or many other places in Thailand, the money in each of these three budgets will go even further.
This budget will pay for:.
Cell Phone — baht — mobile fees for basic calls at around 2 baht a minute. Internet — baht — will get you unlimited Wi-Fi in most apartment buildings.
Groceries — 5, baht — basic food items like bread, milk, fruit, veggies, rice, etc. Eating Out — 5, baht — 25 meals at baht per meal — if you eat at food stalls. Transportation — 1, baht — a mix of buses, sky train, underground and taxis. Miscellaneous — 1, baht — cleaning supplies, toiletries, all the usual things you buy. Visa Costs — 1, baht — need at least 18, baht per year for tourist visas or resident visas.
Most agree they would be happy to live on that kind of money. Rent — 10, baht a month — a western style one-bedroom apartment in a convenient location. Cell Phone — 1, baht — basic calls, just more of them than on a 30, baht budget. Groceries — 8, baht — basic food items like bread, milk, fruit, veggies, rice, plus extra items like imported western food or European luxury products.
Eating Out — 10, baht — 25 meals at baht per meal — plus several meals at more upscale places. Transportation — 2, baht — your usual transportation costs plus a few more taxi rides. Entertainment — 11, baht — usual entertainment, plus more shopping and more alcohol. Rent — 18, baht a month — a two-bedroom western style apartment in an excellent area.
Groceries — 10, baht — you can buy just about anything you could need at a typical Thai supermarket. Eating Out — 12, baht — You can eat out three meals a day if you want at cheap restaurants, plus a couple more expensive meals.
Entertainment — 14, baht — your nights out on the town will be more lavish. Vacations — 10, baht — At least two 3-day trips every month to places in Thailand, sometimes even including airfare, or an annual trip back to your home country or to most places in Asia, Europe, South or North America.
