Total 39,712 THB (1060 EUR or 1150 USD at time of posting). Quite a lot, but that includes one trip to Pattaya (1600 hotel two nights + 1215 drinks/tips/off-fee in gogo bars + 2000 two short times = 4815) and 6d5n trip in Esan (where I pay only for my hotel and food, but not for petrol for FF’s car). Not in the list stolen Bluetooth headphones 1600 and stolen T-shirt 100 estimated. Over the years, average 300 stolen per month, usually money, this is the first not-money theft.
Sorted by decreasing amount (sum first, then selected individual items in chronological order, for full list of individual expenses Nov 2016 see following post):
8000 rent (new luxurious room)
1406 sauna 299 (three entries in Nake) 120 199 (party in Nake) 170 160 129 99 140 180
After excesses of January (6d5n trip to Esan and 3d2n trip to Pattaya), I had to take a rest in February before going to Germany on 17feb2017. 32,988 Baht by multiplying numbers for 1-15Feb below by two (to get estimate for 30 days, disregarding that Feb has only 28 days):
Average for Nov2016, Jan2017, Feb2017 is 35,194 THB per month. No expense report for Dec 2016 (I did a visa run to Taipei, which messes things up). In a month where I have no health problems, no extension of stay and no trip to Pattaya, it should be possible to live on less than 1000 per day. All these calculations do not include money needed for visa runs (one visa run in SEA of average 5d4n costs me around 15,000, and a return trip to Germany 22,000).
