Pocket money and spending ??

Hi, I am planning to travel to Phuket (Patong Beach area) for my honeymoon in a couple of months, will stay there for 6 nights . All hotels will be paid for online, so all i need is to know how much i need per day (in USD or THB) for a couple for lunch/dinner (cheap or moderate/nothing fancy), tours(temples/Phi Phi island/trekking/rafting), shopping (just some souvenirs), massage .

note that we don't drink.

would really appreciate your help answering my question,

thanks,

4000 Baht per day is a good guide, Others will tell you ,you ll do it for less. Its a vacation , Thats what we spend minimum and we are very similar to your personal description of what your looking for.

Yes we spend about 4,000 a day as a couple (maybe a bit more in Patong) I drink a lot but don't do many tours so what you save by not drinking you can spend on your tours, some tours are up to 4,000 Baht per person but you won't be doing that every day, some days you will spend far less than 4,000 Baht which will cover the one or two expensive days.

4000 as a couple including tours is fair. I was expecting the posters on this board to start suggesting 10,000 plus.

take as much as u got, (+ an atm card) no reason thou you need spend it all

u could get by on 1,000 baht /day if had too. ( only simple food- no bars,no tours, not much fun)

Probably if you budget 5,000 per day for the two of you, you'll have plenty of elbow room and will possibly Not spend it all. It's always best to have a bit too much than not enough.

It is easy to find good restaurants in Patong. You May have lunch or dinner for 400 bath/person or less including beverage.

Concerning tours it May be very different according to the distance and the service Provided
