Price Thailand VS UK

Recommended Posts

From another topic

"just pu..ssy, massage,  low quality  apartment, Fuel.. may be some another few thinks.. cheapest in Thailnd.

Almost everything else is more expensive in Thailand."

I still  thinking Thai it more expensive country than UK..

 But of course I choose the same product.

And its talking about quality product..

Many poor-quality products and services, simply illegal in Britain. SO cant be compare..

I feel like a normal person budget is:

1. 15%- Transport

2. 10%- household staff spending

3. 15%-  household  spending

4. 10%- entertainment

5. 10%- hobby

6. 15%- children

7. 110%- food 

8.  15% personal staff

 

Just in my opinion 2 and 3 in UK a little more expensive.

 another all much more price in Thailand.

 so lets go

 compare with proof

Food bill for two people each month includes everything purchased at supermarkets, 8,500 baht,or 200 Pounds a month.

 

Water - 6,000 litres a month - 108 baht or 2.50 Pounds

 

Cooking gas (bottle), 480 baht every six months - 11.50 Pounds twice a year

 

Electricity including air con - averages 1050 baht per month or 25 Pounds

 

Telephone standing charge - 109 baht per month or 2.50 Pounds

 

Petrol/diesel per month, 2,000 kilo's per month - 3,100 baht or 73 Pounds

 

House/garden Staff - 2 people working 50% fo their time - 10,000 per month or 238 Pounds

 

Drinking water, 50 litre bottles, 25 baht each or 0.60 Pounds weekly.

 

Proof? You'll have to take my word for it, that's what we spend for two people.

Thailand has been more expensive than the UK and USA for many things for a number of years now, currency fluctuations notwithstanding. The biggies are cars and supermarket food and booze.

Damn but you've got some nerve! Do your own research and comparison, you seem to know lots about the UK, all I'm prepared to do is supply you with some data for Thai costs.

@ardokano this topic comes up regularly, often posted by you.

 

Why the obsession with costs compared with the UK? Western (and some Eastern) products are more expensive here but the reverse is also true.

 

A fully loaded Ranger WildTrak is about GBP 35k (THB 1,500,000 ) in the UK, the same car here is THB 1,200,000 (although it's difficult to compare directly as the equipment isn't exactly identical), road tax, fuel and insurance are all cheaper here.

 

Our home, a large 3 bed, 3 bath quality residence on 1/2 an acre within an hour commute to the central business district of the capital city, valued for the mortgage at THB 13 million (GBP 300,000) 4 years back, that would be a million pound house the same commute from the Square Mile.

 

We have street lighting and twice a week bin collection for THB 300 a YEAR, lord only knows what that is in the UK.

 

I also earn rather more with rather lower deductions here than I could in the UK, disposable income (which Wifey disposes of very well) is significantly better here.

Rubbish you say!!!!

 

They're the norm for our household and that's the only one I know about, our hob is dual fuel, one gas ring and three electric.

We use a cooking bottle in about 3 months, I don't really time it, but it only works the hob.

 

An awful lot of our cooking is done on Wifey's carbon-neutral charcoal hob and barbie. I really don't know what the charcoal costs but it comes from renewable trees, burned in the traditional manner and delivered by a bloke on a bike :)

 

On the other hand our power bill is >5,000 a month :(

 

We spend 5-6k in Makro every two weeks with top ups from the mobile shops (ok pickup trucks)

Housing ....Built a 500 sq meter home for $4.5 million Baht ($150,000) same cost in US would be $1,000,000 ($200 per sq ft)

Food..........Eat plenty of fruits and vegatables  with some pork or chicken ......Thailand $200.... US $400

Utilities.... For gas, electric, water ,garbage, phone and TV .......Thailand $150 ....US $1,500

and it only one Commercial car..

 I'm not sure that if the buyers in Thailand would have a choice of cars at the same price as in UK.
  buyers would choose wildtrak or another TRAK 

 DO you Thailand tax resident?

 And tax its not correct compare. because tax its price for services what you get from authority.

 Do you  thinks its similar service?

PS

 i am start talking about compare price every time when I see that someone said that Thailand is cheaper.

 And open New topic because do not want offtop in another
