Since 6 years i live in bangkok. Never ever - not at bkk, not at chiang mai, not at Pattaya, not at hua hin - i payed for a km by taxi around 40 baht. The basic price has always been 35 baht including the first km. Every km on top is indicated with around 10 baht. This means, for a 10 km trip you have to pay around 120 baht. Depending on traffic situation. Who ever tells you the taxi km is around 30 or 40 baht is wrong. Definitly. Look for taxi with taximeter.
Apart from this, your indicated prices are more or less accurate - for tourists. If you are in a position to let locals help you, the rentals can be halved. Those who shop on the daily market may reduce their expences bei 20 to 30%.
So in order to prevent from being ripped off of the outrageous lady price in Pattaya, people should go to very cheap lady destinations such as Colombia, Vanezuela, India, Malaysia etc where you can get a lady for short time for as low as 5 US dollars, exactly what's happening in Colombia whereas you would need to pay at least 100 US for short time with a bad-attitude Pattaya gogo girl, not worthy at all.
Rip-off Pattaya should not be in your lady destinations anymore unlike 10 years ago. Stretch your money for as much as 10 times by choosing cheaper lady destinations.
Thai dishes are about 1 ( one ) euro!
A buffett breakfast is 3 to 5 euro. A mopedtaxi costs around maximum 2 euro !
a primjtive lifestyle in pattaya compared to europe means always just and only 20% !!!! Its 80 % cheaper and much better.seen from prices.
Monthly costs for water & electric is almost 400 bt. Means 15 euro!
You should compare and ask for foreigners , who are living in thailand.
Some tropical fruits cost 1 euro per kilo.
In island or finland it would be 300 usdollars for fresh dragonfruits , but in pattaya you find them for 1,50 euro.
For 6000 bt (180 euro) you find an appartment ,fully furnkshed ,walkdistance to the neach.who needs a car , when in every streetcorner 10 local mopedtaxies are waiting for you ....
