You just couldn’t live like a minimalist anymore

You could easily subsist on it, but it would not be much fun.

It wouldn't. But that wasn't the question. For regular monthly expenses it wouldn't be difficult at all at 35 to 40. But of course that wouldn't cover running a car, being a monger, or very much higher end dining. But none of those are mandatory.

The pension is around 28,000 baht per month, not 35-40K. I'm sure it could be done, after all, people have to live on that in Australia.

The Aussie pension is not the same as it was 10 years ago, it's adjusted every year in keeping with the CPI (consumer price index). The single pension is currently around $700 per fortnight, or 14,625 baht.

You aren't going to get that in Thailand and that's what we're talking about. Only the bare bones pension.

Easy have been for years on far less   for many years with my partner. And no i do not live in a broken down wood shack with no power and running water. I have enough money set aside for any serious problems.

That would definitely be much harder. Possible I guess but spartan.

Agreed. 28k is doable, even in BKK. But, in BKK it will require serious discipline.
