Travel on budget to Thailand

Posted By : egadmin/ 68 0

Thailand is a world renowned destination for its beaches, mountains, culture, and food. It’s at the top of most traveller’s wish list, and it’s easy to see why it’s grown in popularity. Thailand is also a country whose economy and infrastructure is focused on tourism.

 

Thailand (Solo travelling) $175/week

Accommodation: $12

Food:-$5.85/day

Water: $0.59/day

Local transport: $3.94

Entertainment: $6.29

Guide: $1.03

Intercity transportation: $12

Here are some tips and tricks you need to know while you travel to Thailand:

  • eat local

Try to saviour the local food as they are cheap options compared to food chains in big food courts , 7 Eleven and Minimart are also great alternatives as they sell anything from cheap croissants (maximum 30 baht), hot dogs, burgers and pizzas, to Thai food including curries, fried rice and much more for up to 60 baht. Don’t forget to hold onto the free stickers you get when purchasing products at 7 Eleven as these can be handed in for discounts on your next shop there!

  • Transportation

Travel through local buses instead on a taxi or a tuk tuk , even if you do ask them to go with meter instead of price they simply offer.  A good use of google maps is way to go while you are travelling abroad. But better than trains, scooters, taxis and buses, google map your area to see what is in close proximity. There is nothing cheaper and healthier than using your own legs and walking to places! Not only will you get a better sense of direction, but you will probably end up finding new areas/ things to explore along the way.

  • Living

Foe booking any accommodation places make sure to go back to online portals and compare the prices, staying in hostels is the best option, even a lodge or a loft is fine. When it comes to tours/ sightseeing, the best advice I can give is if it’s not a good packaged deal, skip the guided tours where possible, or look for all-inclusive options. Many things you can do yourself (if on land) and you do not need a guide. This will save you time, money and give you more freedom to do what you want.

  • Shopping

Shopping is really very cheap in Thailand so just travel light so that you buy things from local shops and take home. Make sure to bargain well while shopping from the local markets and be aware of the cheats and thugs as they tend to deceive tourists easily.

  • Set your BUDGET!

The last and most important piece of advice i can offer you that sums up everything that has been said is BUDGET! BUDGET! BUDGET! You cannot save money or control your finances if you do not give yourself a daily/ weekly/ monthly limit!!

When you get a job, or are still seeking a job, you need to know how much money you can spend first of all, then how much you are willing to spend, and try to see how much you can save. If you are not in a position to be bailed out by friends/ family, you have to do this! .

 

Travel, but always be aware of your surroundings and keep a copy of your documents where ever you travel, above all enjoy and explore all places possible as you never know you could be the next story teller of your gang!

Singapore is a multilingual nation consisting of four major languages – Malay, English, Indian (Tamil) and Chinese (Mandarin).

The Singaporean flag is divided into equal red and white horizontal sections symbolizing unity and purity. A white crescent moon and five stars in a circle symbolize a growing nation and the ideals of democracy, peace, progress, justice, and equality. The national anthem and national motto are in Malay. Other symbols draw on the distinct ethnic traditions.

The religious culture in Singapore is just as diverse as the population. Singaporeans learn about the religious customs and traditions of other population groups early on. On the list of public holidays in Singapore are Christian, Muslim, and Indian holidays, among others. The state is home to ten major religions, including Buddhism, Taoism, Islam, Hinduism, and Christianity. Some people even accept more than one faith. However, discrimination in Singapore is still a problem at times.

Singapore is indeed one of the most multi-cultural city-state in the world and with its diversification provides a wide range of world beauty. Although like every other nation, it has its own issues to tackle, it is a hotspot and hub for various business entities.
