Tips to Remember
Go off-season: There is no doubt that Bangkok is a year-round destination. But, I would suggest you travel during the summer season from May to August. If you’ll travel in these months, you can save around 15-20% on your living expenses.
Go for street food: Make sure you go for street food options, instead of finding hotels and restaurants, to save a few Bahts.
So what are you waiting for? Pack your bags and enjoy a budget trip to the most vibrant city of Thailand.
