And its price will depend on the area of accommodation, the number of rooms, the availability of amenities and distance from the sea.
The most expensive apartments will be in Pattaya, a very popular Thai resort, and on the island of Phuket. In Pattaya, a single room in a 4 * hotel in June will cost $ 50-100 per night, although you can find a 5 * hotel for the same $ 100. In the resorts of Phuket, they give luxurious rooms in 5 * hotels from $ 100 to $ 250, villas and apartments of the same category can cost in the range of $ 180-200 per day.

The resorts of this country provide an opportunity to appreciate the southeastern cuisine with its abundance of fish and fish delicacies, extraordinary spices and tastes. Each tourist in the process of choosing a place to eat relies on his inner feelings and needs..
Food on the go or in local cafes on the beach will be significantly cheaper than lunch in an expensive restaurant, but there is at least some guarantee that the food is served fresh, freshly prepared. That is why doctors recommend that you refuse to buy food from your hands, from a street counter. And in general, they strongly recommend tourists not to rush to tastings of unknown dishes, giving the body time to get used to the new realities. In large shopping centers in Thailand, you can find fast food establishments with Russian cuisine, Italian or American cuisine familiar to tourists..
In addition, Thais do not like tourists who eat fast food. Since they believe that the white lord falls a step lower, and lower than the Thais themselves.
Being a guest in Thailand is prestigious, but it is important to respect their cultural traditions..
