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.
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.

1. what does accommodation cost in thailand
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).

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.
Good to know:
Beach bungalows are usually very simple "huts" made of wood. You actually pay for the location on the beach and not for the room itself. The same room would only cost 10% of the asking price if it were not on the beach. Therefore, you have to dig deep into your pocket or settle for simple beach bungalows. Beach bungalows are of course being crowded out by expensive hotels, so you find them less in tourist hotspots. On small islands like Koh Tao or Koh-Phi-Phi, however, you can find hotel rooms directly on the beach, which is similarly good.
Good to know:
It is very advisable to note that the hotel is NOT located on a busy road. The Thai windows of the hotel rooms have practically no (noise) insulation. There are quite a few holidaymakers who share their experience and remember the noise at night as the worst. Road traffic around the clock, loud motorbikes and honking cars. Likewise, especially in Phuket (Patong) Pattaya (everywhere) and Ko-Samui (Chaweng Beach), wherever there is nightlife, there is also loud music. The loud music ends late, around 4am. If you cant fall asleep until then, the next day is almost over by the time youve slept in. Therefore, busy street by the hotel or nightlife hotspot = bad location for a hotel.
Booking portals:
Finding a hotel room is very easy. No matter what price range, because there are very many hotels to choose from. This means you could find a hotel room in a few minutes and book it directly. You have the option of going to a travel agency in your home country or booking it yourself. In Thailand, you either go to the hotel and ask to be shown a room or simply book it online in advance. Payment works via PayPal or credit card. A few hotels want cash on arrival. However, payment in advance is common.
Good to know:
Only the small islands have a shortage of free rooms in the high season. "Koh Phangan is almost fully booked for the Full Moon party. Koh Tao is a tiny island and more hotels just dont fit there, one would think. Koh Samui has many hotels but only a few in the centre of the popular "Chaweng Beach". Therefore, you should at least do some research in advance.
A. Agoda (also part of the Booking.com company)
B. Hostelworld (not only hostels)
C. Expedia
D. Booking.com
E. Airbnb
You pay for most hotels in advance via the booking portals. It is always advisable not to book your entire holiday in advance. If you dont like it, you can adjust your holiday locations by booking at short notice. If you like it a lot, simply book a little longer. Only the first night on arrival should be booked in advance. In Thailand, transport within the country is very easy. There are countless offers to be transported from island to island. You usually pay per night and per room. You can usually enter your room (check-in) from around 12 noon, and you usually have to leave your room (check-out) by 12 noon at the latest. At check-in you have to show your passport, sometimes you also need the hotel booking confirmation. It is sufficient to show this on your mobile phone. It is even better to print it out at home, because when you fill in your arrival card on the plane, you should already have the address of the first hotel after your arrival in Thailand ready. The taxi driver at the airport also needs this exact address. Even if the mobile phone battery is empty, you still have the booking confirmation with you as a printout.
