I was asked to go take pictures of the prices in Tesco, which I did on our last visit. It is forbidden to shoot there, so I did not shoot everything. True, we and Tesco are quite small, not a hypermarket, so it's better to look at the rest on their website. Actually, these prices can also be found on the site, there are all the goods and the cost is always relevant. There are only yellow price tags when they sell something. For example, we bought washing powder for 120 baht 3 kg, there is no such price on the website.

Are prices going up in Thailand?
Everyone asks if it has become more expensive in Thailand. In short, in Thailand it has not become much more expensive, the prices are about the same, but for those whose ruble income has become 2 times more expensive in any country, Thailand has nothing to do with it. If you earn in dollars, then everything has not changed much for you..
According to my observations, comparing with the photographs of the prices from the last winter, the prices in the supermarket have grown quite insignificantly. By the way, in Russia prices have increased very noticeably, 1.5-2 times for some positions, as can be seen with the naked eye. But because of the dollar exchange rate in terms of rubles in Thailand, everything has become sharply more expensive. That is, you can generally not pay much attention to the increase in prices in supermarkets in baht, since such a currency rate exceeds all increases in baht prices in Thailand with interest. The main problem is precisely in the exchange rate, if not for him, Tai would continue to remain cheap for many Russians.
But the prices for fruits on the market have increased. However, I have not been to Phuket during the peak season before, so I can only compare with Samui. Maybe it was so in Phuket last year? So, now I buy mangoes at an average rate of 100 baht / kg, I bought once at 60 and 80 baht, but it was so-so. Papaya 40-60 baht / kg, pomelo 40-50 baht apiece, large bunch of bananas 50 baht, pineapples 3 pcs for 100 baht, small peeled pineapple 30 baht / pc, durian 150 baht / kg.
If we are not talking about food, then everything remains approximately the same. A normal house can still be rented for 10-20 thousand baht, depending on the location, season, novelty, etc., and a bike for 3-5 thousand baht, depending on the model. Gasoline, on the contrary, has become cheaper.
Prices in Tesco supermarket in Thailand
All prices are in the photographs, so it is unnecessary to write something extra. What is unclear, ask in the comments. Let me remind you that we already have posts on our blog about supermarkets in general, about minimarkets 7/11, about that, what to feed the baby and how to find russian food, and a post about monosodium glutamate.
On our last visits, there was no mango in Tesco. But a week ago we bought it there for 100 baht / kg. I also forgot to take a picture of the oatmeal, it costs 40-50 baht for 500 grams.
Ordering products from Tesco at home
This winter we decided to try ordering food from Tesco at home. This is a pretty handy thing, since we have free shipping, and the prices are the same. Delivery is not available in all regions, but we do in Phuket. The only problem is with the address, because we live on an incomprehensible street, and the addresses in Thailand are rather confusing. I hope the delivery will reach us and then it will be possible to write a post about this too. Although everything is quite simple there, the main thing is to find out the address from the owner, it will be required for registration. UPDATE. I wrote about delivery in a post - Delivery from Tesco - instructions.
And if something is not in my photos, you can always go to the Tesco online store website and see the prices there, everything is the same.
P.S. If someone else needs from the prices, write. If I know, I will answer. In Big C, the price tags are about the same. Soon I will still go to Central Festival, but I don’t think that purchases there make up the bulk of the wintering budget..
