In This video, travel expert, Jim Kellett talks with Chris from the Youtube channel, Retired Working For You. Chris is an expert in real estate, travel, and retirement in Thailand. They talk about the cost of living in Bangkok and around Thailand. Jim Kellett gives a tour and shows some specific examples of the cost of accommodations, transportation, and food.
Jim also gives examples of island living in Thailand. Living in a popular tourist destination like Phuket or Koh Samui will offer many amenities… but will fall in the higher cost-of-living range, while living on one of the less popular islands will offer a simpler lifestyle at a lower cost. And there are over 1,400 islands to choose from.
Living on a Thai island offers a laid-back lifestyle with stunning natural beauty, water activities, and a vibrant local culture. You can enjoy a sense of community, diverse cuisine, and, depending on the island, a choice between lively nightlife or a quiet laid-back atmosphere.
Living in Chiang Mai, Thailand, offers a unique blend of cultural richness, and a relaxed pace of life. Surrounded by mountains, the city provides a more temperate climate, and residents can enjoy a variety of traditional festivals, delicious local cuisine, and numerous outdoor activities. The cost of living is generally lower than in major cities, contributing to the city’s appeal to digital nomads and retirees. Even in the popular part of town, you can find a good meal for $4 dollars or a massage for $7 dollars.
In Chiang Mai, many expats report being able to live comfortably for $1,200 per month, and nomads renting month-to-month, have reported living comfortably for $1,100 per month.
