Thailand on a Budget or How to Enjoy Your Thailand Vacation for $30 a Day

Thailand. Home of ancient temples, stunning beaches, and five-star luxury unknown to any of its neighbors. The Kingdom of Thailand, once known as Siam, has long been a favorite of travelers, and for good reason. With incredible eating options, immense geographical variety, and postcard quality natural beauty, it's consistently sat in the world's top ten travel destinations for many years.

But despite its reputation as one of the world's best 'bang for your buck' travel destinations, visiting Thailand isn't always a cheap experience. The country's official Tourism department, the Tourism Authority of Thailand, estimates that the average tourist spends around 3,500 baht ($110 USD) per day while vacationing in the kingdom. That's not expensive per se, but it's certainly not in line with the dirt cheap image many would-be visitors have in mind when planning their Thailand vacations.
