Money to spend

I am travelling to Thailand from in December/January for 28 days.

From Bangkok - Chiangmai - Phuket - Phi Phi - AoNang - Khao Lak - Melbourne.

2 People ( 1 adult and 1 teenager)

My accommodation, flights and major tours are paid for.

We will do a little shopping (not planning to go crazy)

Happy to eat local foods

An occasional alcoholic drink (for me or course)

Some local sightseeing and transport

I’m not sure how much spending money I will need for the 2 of us. Can somebody give me some indication?

Thank you so much in advance :)

Well, 2,000 - 3,000 Baht / day, or less if you didn't pay much for alcoholic drink in pub,bar, buy water at 7-11, didn't shopping in the mall or pay for Taxi. transportation here kind of cheap not include Taxi and Tuk-Tuk



but I think it depends on a person and where to go/stay :^

I also budgeted between $150-$200AUD per day for 2 of us which turned out to be wayyyy too much, took $4K came home with $1700, and some of that spent went towards dentist visits, one hotel bill, all our food, transport, heaps of tours, drinks, tips, shopping. We did a lot of walking as opposed to taking taxis, just cause that's how we like to explore, so I guess we saved on that, but we certainly didn't scrimp on things. If your accom/flights etc are all paid, that's a big chunk you don't have to worry about, use the BTS in Bangkok, you can eat quite cheaply as well.
