Cost of Living in Chiang Rai, Thailand – One Month, One Couple, One Dog
How much we spent in one month of living in Chiang Rai, Thailand
After a particularly late night responding to an email from an excited, soon to be expat from the UK thinking about moving to Thailand, we decided to share our actual cost of living in Chiang Rai, Thailand.
This post shows a big difference in our spending patterns compared to when we first arrived in Chiang Mai in 2012. Our original post, ‘The Real Cost of Living in Thailand' showed what we spent our money on back then, as freshly made expats trying to find our comfort zone in Chiang Mai. We will explain in more detail what has changed later in the post, but you’ll be happy to hear the total cost of living in Chiang Rai for us, is almost the same as it was over 2 years ago. :-)
