Budget Travel Tips To Krabi

April 26, 2018

As much as all of us love to travel, we also love to conserve as much money as we could while on the go. Be it on shopping, dining or even tours, saving money in a holiday is much a challenging thing to do. Especially if you come in a more wealthy state like the West, because you are inclined to think everything is cheap even when it isn’t considered so in a neighborhood context.

Krabi, Thailand, is a popular tourist destination due to its cheap food, lodging and available tours. Apart from Krabi, there are also a number of popular holiday destinations in Thailand for example Phuket, Phi Phi, Surat Thani, Lanta, Pang Nga and Trang. These few areas are constantly packed with travelers from all over the world. So how can you save your cash and get the best from your holiday in Thailand?

Eat the Neighborhood Way
A fancy restaurant doesn’t absolutely guarantee the quality of food. Head over to where the locals eat. Following mythailandtours of thumb, if there’s a audience in a specific food home, then the meals there should be useful. After all, the locals know best.

Bargain, Bargain Bargain!
The locals can spot a foreigner readily particularly if you aren’t of Asian descent. It’s also very common for them to test their luck and jack up their earnings cost when they see a potential tourist-customer. So don’t be deceived and set your bargaining skills to check. Never settle for the initial price they offer you - always attempt to reduce or pretend to walk away if they deny cause it is quite likely that they’ll call for you with a cost that’s way lower than the initial one. But of course, you also have to be reasonable in the price that you quote.

Go During Off-Season
If you visit Thailand between Jan and May or July to Nov, chances are you can get a free upgrade to larger rooms without needing to top up. From time to time, hotel rooms are also cheaper than said.

Walk or Rent a Bike
Forget taxis! If the location is near, then simply walk instead of flagging a cab. The roads of Krabi and Phuket are constantly filled with shops so that it is not a truly lonely and boring walk. Otherwise, rent a bike. Renting a bicycle is very common in Thailand and cheap also. You can check with your hotel’s front desk if they have any motorbike rental services. If they do not, then just walk out and you’ll definitely see a minumum of one motorbike rental shop out there.
