How much do we spend on living in Thailand in Chiang Mai

We lived in Thailand, specifically in Chiang Mai, for two months and found out how much apartments in thailand, how much is the food in Thai cafes and shops, andany other small thing. Not much time has passed, but we can already draw conclusions for ourselves regarding how much life in Thailand costs (it is clear that it is invaluable) for us and what is the wintering budget in Thailand. Most likely, spending will differ slightly by month, so every month it makes no sense to write about how much was spent.

Our spending per month in Thailand:

Apartment (apartments) - 6500 baht (our apartment)
Utility payments - water 300 baht, electricity 500 baht, mobile phone 100 baht.
Internet and TV - 500 baht.
Food purchased in the store - 5000 baht.
Food in Thai cafes - 1500 baht.
Unforeseen expenses - 1000 baht.

A total of about 16,000 baht per month for two. I think this is not bad. In Moscow, we spent about the same amount, only it did not include apartment rent.

All other purchases (clothing, equipment, travel, etc.) I do not take into account here, since this is already optional spending, and a personal matter of each.

With all this, you can live and much cheaper,and much more expensive. For example, you can rent an apartment for 2500 baht without air conditioning (in winter it doesn’t really need it), and there are only in Thai cafes, but you can, on the contrary, rent multi-room apartments with chic repairs or a villa, and only European food. But even in the latter case, it will turn out cheaper than in the same Russia with the same comfort. Now I will not write more about this in other articles.

Here is a comparison of our spending per month in Phuket: How much do we spend on living in Phuket in Thailand.

P.S. To focus on our spending, or spending of other people, is only with an approximate coincidence of needs. I met people on the forums who are under $ 100 a day in Thailand. Plus, you need to understand that it is one thing to come to Tai for a couple of weeks leave, another to live there for half a year. The cost of living or resting is significantly different.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
