Budgeting & Other tips

The north of Thailand is easiest on a tight budget. As one moves south, costs for accommodation start to double, triple, and even quadruple. Pricey accommodation will be your biggest expenditure, with drinks coming in at a close second.

However, when if you consider overall expenditure, you'll realize that the costs were still very reasonable. Buses and trains were completely reasonable in price, especially the non-VIP options, ranging from $3 to $9 for a bus journey. When possible, take motorbike taxis as they are the cheapest option. Always at least try to haggle, and don’t take a taxi that isn’t in a queue. If someone walks up to you,they're going to quote an outlandish rate.

The food in Thailand is fantastic and very cheap. One can easily eat at a night market, sampling several different eats, for just a few dollars. Generally, prices are not negotiable and the asking price should be paid. Prices run from around USD$1 for a dish like vegetarian pad thai, to $3 for a soup with beverage and rice, or $6 for fresh fish.

Bangkok - sightseeing, temples and nightlife

Kanchanaburi - nature and history

Chiang Mai - Temples, adventures, trekking

Chaing Rai - Trekking and nature

Pai - Backpacker vibe

Koh Phayam - like the old days

Koh Tao - partying, diving, snorkelling, zip lining

Koh Phangan - partying and chilling

Krabi - stunning views, magnificent islands

Phi Phi - partying and diving

Trang - a little off the beaten track, island living and chilling
Places like Bangkok, Chiang Mai and islands like Koh Phangan are all good for backpackers and all have reasonably priced accommodation, but there are heaps of other places along the way
