Thailand is such an amazing place to visit. We spent 3 weeks going around the country visiting cities, jungles and of course the picturesque beaches. Which places did we visited? Bangkok, Chiang Mai, we also slept a night at a floating bungalows resort in the Khao Sok National Park, walked the famous Bangla road in Phuket and finally took the ferry to the Phi Phi Island where we spent a night on a boat so to have the exclusive experience of seeing the Maya bay beach without the crowd. In March of 2017, Thailand was pretty hot and in the high 90's, but among all Bangkok was the worst place to be in because of its pollution, crazy traffic all contributing to this "sticky" weather condition. Besides that, price for hotels was in the low or mid-range. We booked all types of accommodations including Airbnb apartments, Hotels, a Jungle house and even spent a night on a boat. If you are trying to budget for a trip to Thailand, here is our cost breakdown in US dollar for 2 persons. 

China Southern Airlines: SFO - BKK: 1532.66

Travel Insurance: 74.80

Hotels: 1089.28

Activities: 600

Transportation: 300

Food: 400

TOTAL: 3996.74

But of course it greatly depends on what you plan on doing and where you're staying. Make use of Points and Miles and you can significantly cut your overall cost by essentially flying for free and sharing the cost of hotels with friends or even get free nights. We ate large meals and drunk Chang beers nearly every day to cool off, and considering we only spent about $400 for food, I have to say Thailand was an amazing deal. If you're visiting soon and have some questions don't hesitate to ask. Enjoy the gallery.
