5 Ways to Save Money in Thailand

We found these suggestions over at Hobo with a Laptop and we picked the best ones. View all 20 ways to save money in Thailand.

1. HOUSE SITTING (OR PET SITTING)

I could suggest couchsurfing.com as a great way to save money on lodging, but there’s an even better way; house sitting. Instead of getting a couch, get a whole home. You can find out more about how it works at Trusted House Sitters.

2. DON’T OVER PAY FOR ELECTRICITY

If you’re paying over 8 baht per kWh unit for your electricity, you’re paying too much. In fact 8 baht per unit may be too expensive by some people’s standards as it is.

1 kilowatt is 1,000 watts, and the price per kilowatt unit is billed by the hour (thus “kWh”).

The average 12,000 BTU air conditioner uses around 1,200 watts per hour which is 1.2 kWh.

If you ran your 12,000 BTU air conditioner for 24 hours per day for 30 days at 8 baht per unit, you would have to pay 864 baht for your air conditioning alone, on top of the costs to run your other appliances. At the time of writing, that’s almost $27 USD. That isn’t cheap.

In addition to that, Thailand runs primarily on coal and in my opinion it doesn’t matter how much you pay —that’s a carbon foot print that you’re leaving behind for my nephews and nieces. Not cool.

3. GET THE BEST DEAL ON FLIGHTS

Step 1: Clear your cache –that means everything since the beginning of time. Cookies, history, cache, everything.

Step 2: Before searching for a flight, adjust country / location settings. Explore costs for different neighboring countries to your desired destination. You may need to reset the website language after choosing a country near your destination from the drop-down on the top right of their website homepage.

Step 3: Repeat steps 1 and 2. (Original source)

4. SLEEP IN A TEMPLE

If you’re real hard up, you can always check yourself in to the Doi Suthep Vipassana Meditation Center, high atop Doi Suthep with a great view of the city. The cost is an undefined donation.

And I’m mostly kidding about taking a meditation course to get a free place to stay (and some small basic meals) –I’d suggest this to anyone looking to unplug for a while and become more acclimated to the local culture as well.

5. SAVE MONEY ON VACCINATIONS

Vaccinations in the ‘Western world’ are expensive. Vaccinations in the developing world are not. Here’s some really helpful insight into how to save money on vaccinations before you travel.

6. Cycle everywhere

An easy way to save money while you are travelling is to hire or buy a second hand bike. The best in my opinion is the hybrid. Whilst some of these might be hard to come by to get an idea of the best types of bikes check out this article listing out some of the best hybrid bikes.

I am really loving the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A few of my blog readers have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?

First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question that I’d like
to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center
yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had a tough
time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas
out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or
tips? Kudos!
