Thailand on a Budget


Street food in Thailand is some of the best in the world. It’s cheap and one of the world’s most popular cuisines. However, if you hunger for something a bit different, Thailand’s restaurants offer a wealth of culinary experience offering food from almost every part of the world at affordable prices.

Eating at food stalls can really save on the travel budget


Traveling from one end of the country to the other by bus or train can often cost only a few dollars in Thailand. Additionally, the emergence of a number of ‘low cost’ airlines in Thailand now means that air travel is no longer the privilege of a wealthy minority.  Often you will find a number of special promotions advertised on the Internet which means that aircraft travel can be as cheap as any other form of travel. Imagine flying from Chiang Mai to Phuket for only 99 Baht – it’s possible if you keep your eyes open!   AirAsia is one low cost carrier to watch for those specials.

Depending on what you do, entertainment in Thailand can also be reasonably inexpensive. As you travel around, you will find bars, clubs and other entertainment venues all available at moderate prices and movie tickets are among the cheapest in the world.  Probably the best aspect of travel in Thailand for the budget traveler is accommodation as Thailand is well equipped for those on a limited budget. Almost every part of Thailand has guesthouses and low-cost hotels available for only a few dollars a night. You will find cheap, clean and safe budget accommodation is plentiful, whatever your budget.
