The Australian dollar has tanked against the baht. 1500 AUD will bring about 30,500 baht. Thats small change in Phuket after taking gross overcharging into consideration.

Australians are throwing 30% of their savings down the drain when they travel to Thailand.

Could soon be 19 baht .

5-10 dollars for a small lousy leo or singha beer. No imported brands allowed of course.

Small beer in Patpong bars as high as 220 b -  mostly 120-150 b.

Paradise exists only for Thais in the tourist industry especially road transport mafia and prostitution.

How long would 30k last in Thailand if you don't know the local prices for anything? Maybe 5 days.

Australia traditionally one the main tourist arrivals in Phuket .I wonder for how much longer.

Paradise lost ?

 

And Bali is booming with Australians

Thailand is just like a casino. Once youre in there you lose track of  youre moneys value. Like the chips at a table . 100.00 is a single chip. In thailand 100.00 is just 3000 bht. If i were spending usd here it would not feel like casino chips.

Here its like 3000 bht feels like monopoly money. But back home a hundred bucks is a hundred bucks.

I just got back here from 4 months abroad and see the usd is now worth jack diddly again.

In malaysia,indonesia and australia  my usd is kickin some but still. Its definately lights out for me here in phuket.

I am out of here as soon as i can get a weather window.
