Money saving tips when traveling to Bangkok

| |

There is no doubt that planning a tourist trip in Bangkok is a dream for many, as this charming city in Thailand radiates with a unique atmosphere in shopping, food, entertainment and monuments.

But recreation in Bangkok may cost you a lot of money if you are not prepared with some measures, and today we offer you this set of tips to save money when traveling to Bangkok.

Choose a visit time away from the peak

During the peak tourist season, Bangkok is very crowded with tourists, which causes feelings of distress and affects prices, as prices for accommodation and services rise.

The best time to visit Bangkok is the period between September and October, when the tourist congestion gradually decreases and transportation within the city becomes better and prices fall.

Avoid fancy restaurants

Savoring experiences in Asia, especially Bangkok, is a must, but we advise you to stay away from high-end luxury restaurants with exorbitant prices and use street food sold in kiosks or prepare in front of you, which is characterized by quality and great taste as it is a great opportunity to experience local food.

Use bargaining

You must prepare your bargaining skills while touring Bangkok, where sellers offer unrealistic prices for merchandise as well as taxi and tuk-tu drivers.

Use public transportation

Public transportation in Bangkok is as varied as buses, metro, trains, water taxis, and tuk-tuks, all of which are affordable options compared to renting cars.

Renting accommodation instead of hotels

It is possible to rent an apartment or room in Bangkok instead of staying in the hotel in order to save costs. There are many integrated services accommodations available in Bangkok at cheap prices.

Shop smart

It is not possible to return from Bangkok without shopping, but you must stay away from the luxury shopping centers with high prices and go to the places of the popular market such as Chinatown and Chatuchak Market which includes thousands of goods stalls where you can buy clothes, antiques, souvenirs and others.

Stay near tourist attractions

Money can be saved by staying near attractions such as Khao San Road, which offers cheap accommodation close to the most important attractions for saving transportation costs.

Withdraw enough money

Withdrawing money from ATM machines in Bangkok is very expensive, so it is preferable to withdraw enough cash at one time or bring in enough paper money from your country to avoid high withdrawal fees in every withdrawal.

Book early

It is preferable to book travel tickets to Bangkok early, i.e. at least six months before the date of travel, in order to obtain the best airfares.

Avoid western food

Prices for Western food and fast food in popular chains are high in Bangkok so it is best to rely on local meals during your trip.

Visit the free landmarks

There are many museums, temples and parks in Bangkok that can be visited for free .. Prepare a list of them online and enjoy visiting them without additional expenses.
