Thailand is still very cheap compared to Europe. If you know a few things, you wont be surprised at the price when you go on holiday. Therefore, the basic information in advance.
Thailand - Holidays & Costs.
Thailand - Holidays & Costs.One of the most popular long-haul destinations has long been Thailand. From once small fishing villages to mass tourism. The benefits of mass tourism offer you a relaxed and comfortable trip, with endless inland resort options. Restaurants as far as the eye can see. Leisure activities till you drop. Nightlife till you drop. Well-kept and clean beaches. Hotels and hostels in all price ranges.
The disadvantages, however, are typically like in every holiday country, higher prices in tourist areas, price surcharges for tourists and mass processing, keyword "mass instead of class". This is sometimes accompanied by overcrowded beaches (James Bond Island, Patong Beach) and overpriced hotels (hotels directly on the beach). Restaurants in tourist hotspots raise their prices as much as they can (same food, 5 times more expensive). But dont worry, Thailand is still very cheap compared to Europe.
If you know that the price is outrageously expensive right now, you will save yourself not only unnecessary expenses but also poor quality. Because in Thailand, the price usually says nothing about the quality. A restaurant opposite the biggest shopping centre in Ko-Samui charges 10 times more than the small street restaurant only 100 metres away. You will hardly ever see a Thai in such an "overpriced" restaurant. Apart from the price, this is also due to the fact that mass processing prevails there. This means that the cooking is done without love. Most likely, the food is even pre-produced. So its not even fresh. The "no-name" restaurant down the small side street cooks everything fresh, tasty and at normal prices. There you will also see the local food. Only in hotels, a price difference is justified. But even here, in most cases you pay double the price for the location. Whether it is worth it, mostly no. The best moments and discoveries are made on the way to the beach or restaurant. If you have a private hotel beach and even order your food at the hotel, you will experience very little of Thailand. Food in hotels should be avoided anyway. Basically, not only in Thailand, many chefs in hotels have the instruction to keep the costs envious. Here they calculate and charge. This no longer has anything to do with hearty preparation.
4. leisure activities
You always pay for one room per night, which is usually for 2 people. A single room for only one person is rare. A beach bungalow is also paid for as a room, which is also usually for up to 2 people. For a hostel, you always pay the price per bed in a shared room (dormitory).
1. what does accommodation cost in thailand
Accommodation costs per night
3,-€ in a hostel
per person (shared room).
This price range is recommended for backpackers. You meet many new people, but you have to give up your privacy. If you only stay in the room to sleep, you will be very happy.
8,-€ in a hotel room
or beach bungalow without air conditioning (for up to 2 people).
This price range is becoming increasingly rare. These are/were usually older rooms. In the meantime, there are hardly any hotel rooms in this price range and without air conditioning.
15,-€ for a very simple hotel room with air conditioning.
These budget rooms are mostly 1-2 KM outside of tourist hotspots or are old buildings or are only small rooms (few m). One of these restrictions can always be found. These budget rooms are very common in Thailand.
20 to 30,-€ for a modern hotel room with air conditioning.
Modern means new building or renovated.
This price range with +20€ is the recommended one for longer stays or for holidays as a couple or family. There are many such rooms in this price range. But there are also a lot of hotels that charge 30€, but should not cost more than half that (overpriced). It is therefore relatively difficult to find hotel rooms in this price range that are appropriate for the price.
20 to 30 euros for a modern flat with air conditioning.
Flats are rented on a monthly basis. Here you also pay for electricity and water. For a stay of several months, apartments are much cheaper than hotel rooms. However, renting from private persons often results in being cheated, be it with the rent, the deposit or double-charged electricity and water costs. Because a deposit is also due. A flat is only worthwhile for stays of several months. It is easier to rent via Airbnb. However, if you dont like the flat after 1-2 days, you wont simply get your monthly rent back. It is easier to use a regular hotel room.
30,- to 300,-€ upwards - for a modern villa with pool at the beach.
These villas with several rooms are almost always about outside the tourist hotspots (radius 10KM). The villas are something very special, travel groups of young people like to use them, as you can share the costs. Wealthy people also resort to them. However, wealthy people prefer luxury hotels instead of rented villas. This is because luxury hotels are almost always in a better location than private villas. The villas are usually found outside, which makes the daily walk to the beach and especially at night after a party tiring in the long run. If you have the necessary change and prefer a quieter location without road traffic, you can rent a small villa with a private pool. Usually there is a cleaner included.
