Total cost of food and groceries in Bangkok for one month is ฿13,379.25 THB

Conclusion

Here is my final total average cost for 1 month in Bangkok.

The breakdown:

Food and groceries = ฿13,379.25 THB per month($382 USD)
Rent and utilities = ฿9,150 THB per month ($260 USD)
Transportation = ฿800 THB per month ($22.50 USD)
Going out/entertainment/massages = ฿2,740 THB per month ($78 USD)
Visa = ฿1,800 THB per month ($50 USD)
—————————————-
Total = ฿27,869.25 THB per month(about $800 USD or $1,000 CAD)

During my 4 months stay in Bangkok, I spent between ฿25,000 THB – ฿28,000 THB per month (about $800 USD or $1,000 CAD). I find it very hard to spend more than that alone, unless I upgrade my apartment and eat out in restaurants for every meal.

On the other hand, I could probably spend a few hundred dollars less each month if I only eat street foods. However, I find it tough to only eat street food every single day, and I need to mix things up.

If one day I had to spend less than $500 USD or under ฿17,000 THB per month, I would fly back Canada.
