I agree with the #Anonymous post near bottom of page. He says his friend that works at the bank spends $12,000 per month with his condo at $5000 per month and the poster spends around $4000 per month.
This is what i have found . I have been living in Thailand from 2000 when it was cheap back then everything was a dollar and rent was 300 for a nice place. Now like the poster at the bottom I spend around $4000 to $6000 with out going to the clubs and GO GO bars. My room is $700 per month and my food is the same if i drink it goes up and if you go out it really goes up
Thailand is not cheap for a person that is used to a middle class or higher class of western life style.
for me its hard to not spend over 4000 USD per month mostly because i will go out with friends. If i stay home and cancel my gym membership and never drink then maybe i would get by on $3000 per month but i could not live for less.
#Dick Farang on Aug 11, 2017 :
Milk is 91.75 baht for a two-litre bottle.
Decent farang-quality bread is 70-100 baht for about 300 grammes.
#Dick Farang on Aug 11, 2017 :
The distances from Pattaya to Siracha and to Rayong are about 35 kilometres, not over 80 kilometres.
#Dick Farang on Aug 11, 2017 :
Local beers (Heineken, etc. included) are not 50 cl., but 32-33 cl. and 62-63 cl.
Most imported beers are 150-250 baht in supermarkets.
In supermarkets a mid-range bottle of wine is 1,500-2,000 baht, but you can find a decent bottle of Chilean wine at 700 baht.
The wines sold at 400 baht are bottom quality, sold in Europe at Aldi, etc. at 2-3 Euros.

Have spent time in Bkk and Phuket over last couple of years. Most prices consistent as displayed.
Phuket traders and taxi drivers very greedy. Spoil it for tourists- would never go back to Phuket, but will be travelling to Pattaya and Bkk in October.
