Has Anyone Noticed How Expensive It Is To Live In Isaan These Days?

Recommended Posts

17500 in Tescos...w00t.gif

If your not buying electrical equipment or that stuff, tell us how you managed to hit that number in there?

He has mentioned clothing but at Tesco it still wouldn't help to get to the 17K mark.

I fear it's the unexpected ham that got to himtongue.png

As the Thai's always say "Check Bill" whistling.gif , so the OP should have at least "Check his own Bill" coffee1.gif which as mentioned was a bit steep for food and boys cloths from Lotus. sick.gif

Tesco's is owned by a UK firm that does not live in Thailand jackr so you are correct. thumbsup.gif

Kan is still good for Thai food and bits and bobs.

A buddy of mine commented that the cost of living in Isan has risen. He brought his wife to Pattaya and she felt that prices for food were actually lower here. Before I get flamed, just repeating what I was told.

I have noticed inflation here in Pattaya as well. My neighborhood restaurant increased the price of all rice dishes by 5 baht- still affordable smile.png One restaurant serving German food increased entrees by 10 baht, again still affordable but when coupled with a weak USD, it adds up.

I was in the USA for most of 2012 and noticed a lot of inflation there as well.

Just the way it is...

When I was in Nan last February the only thing I could find to eat in town was rice soup... at about 35 baht a bowl. That is all I could find after stopping in about 15 cafes. I'm sure there must be some proper restaurants but I couldn't find any. I was finally stuck eating at my hotel's buffet for about 250 baht. I can get a nice Thai meal in Chiang Mai for 40 baht.

Its lights out at Nan at 8pm up at 5 am,beautiful place
