Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Yeah, I have a room with air conditioning, a private bathroom, and cable TV. I was going to get a house/apartment a month ago but then I got mugged and only just got my credit card replacements. It won't really be worth it now because the costs of getting broadband are pretty high. If I come back to Laos after my 2-4 weeks in the US for Christmas, I'm going to get a nice house with a good internet connection.

Apparently there's a hostel here that costs $1/night.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

For the haters:

Seems to me like this Thailand crew just has life figured out... from what they have said it seems like Thailand is the kind of place where you can wake up in the morning and the first question that pops into your head is "what should I do today?" in the western world you only get to ask yourself that question maybe twice a week (on the weekends) if you're lucky...

Sure getting drunk every night and banging hookers/thai women might not be your thing... then so what... get up in the morning and pursue your hobbies.... to me, the idea of getting up in the morning, shooting 18 holes and then chilling in some AC with my laptop is heaven.

I want to do some golfing at some point, but havent yet, there is lots of golfcourses.

Dont know exactly about getting a real job, guess you have to take a paycut...

Actually, this isn't because it's Thailand, it's because they don't have real jobs. It's the same in the U.S. if you don't have a real job. The main difference is that your money (which is likely the same since you don't have a real job) goes further. If, on the other hand, you go over there with the intention of getting a real job and living that lifestyle, you are going to be seriously disappointed.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

work online FTW? internet offers a ton of possibilities to ppl around the world.

And i am not talking about poker.

Anyway, I have a question: It involves money, and how much I will need if I go. Rate on a scale of 1-10 of how much balla life style the money will allow for.


Shelter:
1. $100/ month (room, box, etc..)
2. $200/ month (1 bedroom)
3. $400-500/ month (2 bedrooms)
4. $500-700/ month (2-3 bed)

Food (assuming 3 meals):
1. $1 per meal, so 3$ a day
2. $5 a day
3. $10 a day

Groceries (if house has kitchen):
1. $20 a week
2. $40 a week

Entertainment (boozing, clubbing, shiting, etc..)
1. $8/ night
2. $15/ night
3. $25/ night
4. $80/ night

Banging hoes:
1. $15
2. $30
3. $45
4. $85


Allowance for live-in female partner (per day):
1. $0
2. $1
3. $2

If you guys could elaborate on how much this "splurging" would return in:

Chiang Mai
Banhgkok
Phuket
Pattaya

I am trying to see what type of budget I would need. I ideally I would want most of my money spent on a nice/ clean shelter, and food. I need to survive, and since I live in a nice neighborhood in California, I think I would not last in the slums of Thailand.

Secondly, I would not be drinking a handle every night; I'm a light weight and haven't he urge to party every single night. I am guessing 2x a week maybe 3.

Lastly if you guys could discuss the change in prices I would see season to season.

I buy all my food at restuarants, but I figure the costs of that stuff to be very very low. For instance a meal of rice and chicken and some sauce is like 50 baht'ish here. Thats like $1.5 so I guess it would be very cheap to buy the stuff yourself, wether you can find a place to cook it or not is another question...
