How much does it cost to visit Thailand for 2 weeks with comfortable itinerary?

Wat pho

Thailand is the country that tourist known as

  • Cheap

  • Good street food

  • A lot of temple

  • Exotic beach

  • Friendly local people

There are certain things that you can do and get the most out of your time and money here.

I have been thinking awhile about what to recommend people who will visit Thailand for 2 weeks.

Initially, I want to make a program to compare with self travelling and compare programs if they travel by them own or buy a tour package which one is cheaper. I started to write and found it is difficult to explain and sometime hard to tell the price per person since it depends on number of travellers. Even I know the cost of travelling in those packages, but the number of visitors will varies and make it hard to compare.

So what should I do to recommend the cost of travelling for 2 weeks in Thailand?

To make it easy, I think it started with program of travel that l like.

So as people who make a living off create a tour, I would like to recommend programs like this for oversea friend who will visit Thailand which the program will be a combination like this.

  1. Comfortable travelling idea

    1. stay overnight in 3 star hotel not guest house, not share room of the hostel
    2. Using domestic flight or overnight train, I do not recommend travel with an overnight bus.
  2. Relaxing on the beach for 3-5 days before going back home

  3. Add activities/tour during staying in the main city to make exploring the city easier

  4. Enjoy some good food or cooking class since I think Thai food is worth trying and experience

  5. Trip schedule should not be too tight with activities so it should be relaxing some

  6. Average spending should be around 100-150 USD/ Day for domestic travel. Where do I get this number from, I check the rate of group tour of online travel agent. I found that average spending on famous trip sales around 100-150 USD/Day/person. So lets keep this number and see how can I work on this.

  7. Program suite for 1-5 visitors, which is only for small group travelling
