We usually average £50 per day for the two of us, this includes all meals, drinks, tours and a bit of shopping, but it depends on what and where you eat and drink. Always shop around for your tours, or hire a driver for the day, this will keep your costs down.

I would allow $1500 which as you have paid for your hotel should be heaps for you to live pretty well - if your hotel has a breakfast included make the most of that as well, I find I don't really eat that much when in Thailand - breaky and dinner and very little for lunch.

Buying your own drinks away from the resort and stocking you mini bar is a good idea as well as some snacks for trips to the beach etc.

I have made it through 10 days on $1000Aud in the past and I by no means skimped, as others have said it depends on you and what you want to buy.

Buy as many of your clothes as you can from the one place to have more power in getting a cheaper price!

As other post said, shop around for tours and don;t be shy in telling them of a better price you have been quoted.

Time of year may also impact on prices.
