Thai language: cost of living

Every new arrival wants to know if they can survive or live well in Thailand on ………..thousand baht a month? Let’s face it, one of the main reasons people move to Thailand is because it’s pretty cheap, and damn awesome, of course. Expats, who have been living in the Land of Smiles for some time, spend a little more than those who take their first steps here. Costs of living is vary depending on localization. Bangkok is slightly more expensive. Expats here like to indulge in shopping and dining out. The capital of Thailand offers huge shopping malls, exclusive restaurants. There are plenty of places to spend your money at, you can spend at least 40,000 – 60,000 Baht to have a good lifestyle. If you are frugal then of course it’s possible to spend less. Don’t go out every weekend, eat only in local bars and don’t spend on any unnecessary things and you’ll be able to live on 30,000 Baht per month.

This is some vocabulary to say about cost of living in Thai language.


จ่าย jàai = to pay
ค่า kâa = cost, charge, expense, fee
