Spending Money help!!!!

Hi,

will £1200 be enough spending money for two adults to take on a 2 week holiday to Thailand ( Nov08 )?

I haven't a clue how much is enough. Thanks Stacey.

Food & drink per day can be around 200 to 500 Baht / person.

Taxi per cay can be about 200 Baht.

Domestic air tickets can be about 4,000 Baht / person. Please see the exact fares with the airlines.

cheers

Thank you.

The money will just be for food and drink and day trips, shopping etc as flights etc have already been paid for : )

Sounds like we might be o.k then.

Hi;

Thailand is a very reasonable place to visit and much more friendly cost than Eu.

For a 1000 baht budget a day for 2 people is plenty of money in Thailand.

The average worker only makes 6000 baht per month ,

roughly 200baht a day.

I think that will be enough - me and hubs went last went to thailand in 2006 and spent about £800 and ate like kings and did several day trips and bought loads of clothes so i think you will be ok

Try and get a Nationwide Flex account before you leave and use ATMs for drawing cash, Good exchange rate and no Bank Charges, In my mind better than travelling with a large lump of money. Just don't loose card. I have used often in Thailandd

Cheers

I don't know how thick £1200 will be. I brought 1,000 US$ in 100$ notes to Vietnam and hubby brought 40,000 Baht with him. All cash. We must be crazy but don't want to use card in a foreign country.

We did 2 weeks on less than that easily not scrimping... we think that's a very generous amount as things just don't cost that much food and drink wise!
