How costly is Thailand for an Indian?

Updated: May 13, 2020

Well, the costs of travelling can be broken down mainly into the following points:

  • Flights

  • Accommodation

  • Food

  • Transportation

Flights from India to Thailand are normally quite cheap and affordable. No wonder the first foreign country that comes to most Indians mind is "Thailand". Expect to pay around Rs 4000- Rs 8000 for a one way ticket to Thailand from India. Low cost carriers like Air Asia provides the lowest fares but they don't provide any baggage allowance. You will have to purchase check in baggage separately. Hence, always calculate your requirements before booking your ticket. Sometimes, a low cost carrier ticket may not always be "low cost".

The next expense that comes into the pocket is accommodation. Hotels are available for around Rs 3000 onwards per night. I mean, you may get a lower priced budget hotel but it will not be worth it looking at the location etc. Hence, it is advisable either to stay in a mid range hotel or stay in a hostel instead. Mid range hostels will set you back by around Rs 5000- Rs 8000 per night. Hostels however are comparatively cheap. If you are travelling on a tight budget, you can save several thousands just by staying in a hostel. Hostel prices are around Rs 300 - Rs 800 for a bunk in a dormitory to around Rs 1000- Rs 2000 for a single room. Keep in mind that most hostels have common toilets and bathrooms. Even if you stay in a single room, you may not get a private toilet and bathroom. However, it's pretty much manageable and is not a cause of concern.
