Mom & Son: RTW Monthly Budget – Thailand February 2016
4 weeks in Thailand – How much did we spend ?
Finally our budget is more under control and looking like I’d hoped it would 6 months ago !
Before we embarked on this adventure I picked a ball park figure for our budget having absolutely NO idea if it would be viable or not, I figured $100 day for both of us sounded like a decent amount, not too much not too little.
Turns out $3000 a month was totally non viable for us in the Americas but in Thailand we are MUCH closer to that figure, $3400 this month 🙂
Monthly Expenses (Sept 2015 – Feb 2016):
Month Expenses Location Sep-15 $ 7550 UK & Spain Oct-15 $ 6150 USA Nov-15 $ 6250 Caribbean & Mexico Dec-15 $ 4000 Cuba Jan-16 $ 5600 Cuba & Hong Kong Feb-16 $ 3400 Thailand
So how did we spend those $3,400 ?
Total expenses for February 2016 = $3,400
How do our daily expenses in Thailand compare to our daily expenses in other countries ?
Basically everything is cheaper in Thailand than the Americas !
Although our accommodation costs have gone down drastically the quality of the hotels actually improved. Most places were 3/4* and all had a pool or a beach. We always had aircon even in the wooden beach bungalows.
Food in Thailand is absolutely fantastic, you can get an amazing meal from a street stall for $1 so we mixed it up with restaurants & street food.
