hi everyone - just joined her but been a punter for about 12 years, on AW for away 8 years.
Very interested in this theme as i hope to visit Thailand perhaps next year. so...... for say a 4 week visit, with about 2 weeks in Bangkok and 2 weeks in puttaya, excluding airfare, what sort of budget would i need staying in middle range accomadation (not luxury but not slumming it either) with a punt every day and say a dozen or so overnights. to include food, drinks and some sightseeing.
I appreciate it can vary a lot but what sort of ball park figure should i be thinking of? any guidance would be appreciated.
How long is a piece of string. ????????
A half decent hotel will cost around £30 a night.
Depends where you eat, a street meal can be £1-50, a more upmarket restaurant could be £10.
Would you actually want to punt every day for 4 weeks ?, a short time punt in Pattaya can be around £30 including barfine, in Bangkok it could be much more.
In tourist areas you will pay around £2 for a small bottle of local beer, ladydrinks can be £3 ----------- so it all depends how much you want to drink.
You should allow £100 a day (including hotel) ------------ plus cards in case you run short of money.
