I have already made another video about my cost of living in Bangkok. This video is pretty much the continuation of that but in a different part of Thailand. If you haven’t watched my cost of living in Bangkok video, there will be a link to it at the end of this video and below.

Bangkok Cost of Living Video:

I encourage you to do your own research about Thailand and don’t just listen to me. Make your own research, visit Thailand and other parts of South East Asia and come up with your own conclusions before deciding to live there.

Everyone’s standard of living and cost of living will be different. What I’m showing you in this video is my cost of living in Chiang Mai, not my friend, my neighbor, not my brother or sister.

You can live here as cheaply as me or live in a luxury hotel that costs you 10,000 baht ($285 USD) per night. You have that option if that’s what you can afford and that’s what I think it’s so great about Thailand.

I don’t see myself on a vacation, because I don’t have a job back home to go back to. I’m just sharing my experience. I’m not here to advise or advocate others to do the same as me.

Cost of living in Chiang Mai per month and my cost of living in Chiang Mai vs Bangkok.

    Loved the info but today I have had to pay THB 2000 fine for not notifying Thai immigration for my Long stay Visa requirement within the 90 days (less 15 days??) No one told me that I had to do this! Why did they not inform me when I was given my visa back in Australia or upon arrival? You guess $$$$$$. Please include this in your presentations.

    That cold January day you talk about (50°c) was rare! Doesn't happen every year, SADLY. Thank you for the realistic breakdown of expenses. Most bloggers and vloggers make unrealistic moves that they themselves couldn't even keep for long, much less to actually live on long term, especially with the food.
    About the tap water, I've been using it to cook for 2 years now without a problem and even rinse my salads with it and then remove excess with a spinner.
    About the taxi, the prices you talk about are per person. Once you have a family, the tuktuk and red taxi will consistently try to charge upwards of 300฿…even speaking Thai and trying to get "lót".
    Uber has been the saver and owning a car is even better if you have a family and thus have a gazillion trips to make daily because it will be cheaper and more practical than trying to find transport a few times per day

    In Scandinavia the tap water has less harmful bacteria than bottled water It is not always better to drink bottled water. You can also purify the water in Thailand if you want to save money but its so cheap that I would not bother as long as I can carry it to my room.

    Hi, your video series about cost of living in Thailand are very useful and informative. But wish to see you make a video about naturalized asian americans or asian Canadians find it hard or easy to live in Thailand. Such issues including the immigration law, is there any rules or stipulations that would required a naturalized asian american or canadian in order to meet the requirement to stay in thailand as a retiree ??

    Chiang mai is heaven for vegans. I am going back for the 4th time soon and can’t wait for the tropical fruits including durian and the best vegan restaurants. You can cycle around Chiang mai easily on bicycle.
