How a strong Baht is affecting your plans to travel?

Recommended Posts

Being constantly torn between The PI and LOS the respective exchange rates do have a small part in my decisions on where to go.

 

1000thb = $28usd

1000php = $20usd

 

So a 2000 baht or peso barfine is a $16 difference to me. I guess it adds up but in the end it's not yet that great a difference that it changes my current taste for TG or Pina puss..

...do they actually have characteristically different flavours....?

So far some years have been cheaper than others

But really

End of the day, $500 or $1000 difference over 3 or 4 weeks isn't a thing to worry about

if it is then stay home, You will be miserable no matter what

Im no big spender but I am not a cheap charlie either

I laugh and pay the best negotiated price without offending anyone

Always haggle but remember to always laugh and then give a tip on top

Life is good :)

Yes, distinctively different but equally yummy...

First visit was 2003 and we got just over 70 baht to the £.   Since then its gone to around 40 so a big drop which means things cost a lot more.  Plus prices have generally gone up such as hotels, drinks and girls.   

 

So i could be sad but just take it that I was just lucky to be there once when it was high and maybe that was the anomoly and not now.   Sometimes you can have it too good.

As mentioned in the thread, maybe we are getting to the norm and previously was too good. My first trip I got 52b to 1 GBP, about a 20 % drop. Just budget accordingly.

Doesnt really effect me too much. Over the span of the trip you probably only spending a little more per day and in mind Bangkok still cheap relatively to other destinations.

I think Thai gov should follow China by controlling their Yuan not going too high...

 

I think tourist will not find Thailand affordable anymore if Bhat keep on getting stronger...
