I did a post before about the cost of living and retiring here in Thailand. So this month I decided to track down to the penny what I spent and it is on payday so far.Remember if you buy in the budget you can spend less and live well here. Please refer to my retirement post on Thailand for further details.
My budget for May so far

This month will have lots f costs, it’s the bi-annual Visa Run To Laos. one of the things I hate about living here is the needless and corrupt way that the government screws people that just want to live here as retire or just as is. So having said that it will cost about 200 or 300 USD to do this visa run as to why I hate it. So there you go, I will update the total cost when I return, but until then have fun and be safe as always.
