Living in Thailand with $400 a month.

Is it possible: See what standard of living this affords.

January 2012, for 31 days.

June 2010 I boarded a plane to Bangkok 18 months later, Iím still in Thailand settling on Chiang Rai in Northern Thailand. During this time I have stayed in many places for a few weeks sometimes months, whilst traveling the whole length of Thailand from Yala to Chiang Rai, along the way I have learnt a few things mainly from making simple mistakes. Follow along and see how to avoid these extra expenses.

For people who are asking themselves is it really possible to live safely with next to nothing in Thailand, working online, or in another capacity that can be done remotely.

Over the next (31 pages - days) you will get to see examples of daily life in Thailand and what you can expect on a budget of less than $500 per month. Itís probably a whole lot better than you imagine. I will also touch on some of the other places I have stayed in Thailand and show you what you can get if your budget is larger.

Can you live on less than $400 per month. Yes it is possible. I will show you how along with the ways it can be done, including the risks and drawbacks.


What you will not find!
Long travelogue's about what I did each day, nor is it an exercise on how to save a dime or a penny.

Each day will be a short paragraph about my expenses and activities for that day with a picture or two, relating to those expenses and activities (pictures and facts). Then a daily topic of sorts, more about things I have learnt in the last 18 months. "One short example daily" Set out in a logical order for example: Week 1: What you can do before leaving. Week 2: On arriving in SE Asia. Week 3: Settling in and buying stuff. Week 4: Cultural differences and dating.
