Thailand is generally regarded as one of the greatest places to live in Southeast Asia in terms of affordability and quality of life. While there are other fantastic locations nearby, Thailand has earned its reputation as a beautiful destination with perfectly priced rent, food, transportation and destinations. The cost of living in Thailand per month can vary greatly from city to city, but with a little bit of an explanation, it should be quite clear that the prices are fantastic.

Cost Of Living in Thailand Per Month

On a month-to-month basis, Thailand can cost anywhere from $150 to $600 USD per month in decent conditions for rent, utilities, food and fun. Apartments and monthly hotel rentals can be as low as $80 for a room with a bed, bathroom and kitchen, but there is room to spend more for a higher quality or better location. The cost of food in Thailand is right around $1 to $3 per meal, and this is a hot, cooked meal from either a local vendor or a small restaurant. Fruit and vegetable prices are extremely low, though they can rise upward when the fruit isn’t in season or other natural factors drive up the price.

For example, a pound of mango can dip down to $0.25 per pound at times, but that’s not a constant guarantee. Likewise, most other fruits and vegetables are still quite fairly priced, though there are expensive options as well. Large avocados are generally about 3 for $1, though there is a little bit of room for them to cost more or less. Desserts and other treats are also incredibly affordable and sometimes cost as little as a dime.
