Thailand is a traveler-friendly holiday destination for many reasons. Its proximity to our country, affordable accommodation rates, and an array of attractions make it one of the most visited places by Indian travelers.
So, if you too are planning to travel to this fun-loving land of beaches and sacred spaces, then let’s help you plan your savings towards the trip.
Before you zero down on any destination, the first thing to is what the estimated cost will be you will have to incur towards the same. A Thailand trip is expected to cost you anywhere between Rs. 50,000 to Rs.70,000 per person. This cost is inclusive of everything from your airfare, accommodation, visa, and entry fee at various attractions.
To help you understand better, let us breakdown the cost for you-
Air Fare- This can vary between Rs.7,000 to 12,000 depending on when you book your tickets. So, a two-way fare would cost you around anywhere between Rs.15,000 to 25,000.
Visa fee on arrival- Thailand Visa fee on arrival will cost you somewhere around Rs. 4,000.
Accommodation- If you stay in a 3-4-star hotel, then they usually charge around Rs.2,000 per night, meaning you’ll have to shell out around Rs.12,000 to Rs. 15,000 for a six to seven-day stay. However, if you stay in a good resort (which are also relatively low priced as compared to that in other countries), you will spend around Rs.20,000 to Rs.30,000.
Transportation- For traveling, you’ll either have to take a taxi or a bus. Bus ticket pass usually costs Rs.300 and taxis aren’t that expensive either. However, you’ll have to insist on the drivers to use the meter to ensure they don’t overcharge you.
Taking the cost of entry fees and other expenses at various attractions, clubs, massage parlors, and restaurants into consideration, you are likely to spend around Rs. 15,000-Rs. 20,000. This means your total cost may come out to be around Rs. 60,000 to Rs.70,000.
Another cost that you should include in your plan is that of buying Thailand travel insurance. Having this policy will ensure that your hard-earned and saved money doesn’t get spent on unnecessary expenditures arising due to travel contingencies. Travel insurance will insulate you from various challenges, which can otherwise make you go off your budget.
