Cost of Living Guide – Bangkok, Thailand

-
.

Bangkok is like anywhere else, it can be as cheap or as expensive as you want it to be. If you plan on eating out at fancy restaurants, sending your laundry out to be done, having a maid and a nice 2 bedroom condo, a car, and partying then you will easily spend as much in Bangkok as you would anywhere else. If however you economize a bit and blend in with the culture you can indeed live very cheaply in Bangkok.
