Travelling Bangkok on a Budget
Four Tips on Monetary Management
Embarking on a voyage to a strange and fascinating land can be extremely fulfilling, but comes with a fair share of woes. If you’re travelling to Bangkok, follow these tips to protect your funds.
Feast on Street Food
There’s a universe to be explored where Bangkok’s street-food is concerned, and not everything is unhealthy as you might expect. Be sure to check out food-courts as well since they’re known for their astonishing range.
Markets Over Malls
You can discover everything that is available at the many malls in Bangkok for much cheaper prices by visiting open markets. You can also experience a hallmark of Thai culture by doing this. The Pratunam Markets, in particular, are ideal.
Learn to Barter
Once you’re exploring the markets of Bangkok, you can bring down the prices even more by learning the fine art of bartering. Most items can easily be brought down to around 80% of the quoted amount by a quick haggle.
Do Not Take the Taxi Parked Outside the Hotel
If you’re staying at one of many Bangkok city hotels centrally located, such as AVANI Atrium Bangkok you will always find friendly taxi drivers right outside the entrance. The fixed rate they quote will generally always be much higher than the usual travel charges.
