Yeah...You can survive in cheap guesthouse/bungalow(B200-600) and having cheap meals(B50-150) for B1000 a day would be ok but you have to keep away the budget for sight seeing where you're planing to go (transportation&admission).
Let's make some plan where you want to visit in Thailand then, you can see more pic how much money should you put in your pocket to come overhere.
Hope this would help

i was spending around £15 a day down in the islands. £3 for my 'shack' and the rest on food, mopeds and booze. if id not drunk as much as i did id have saved around £6 a day. most of the day was either spent on mopeds, or on the beach.
in bangkok you end up spending more (as you would expect) but many of the sights in Bangkok are either free or really cheap anyway. like the previous post said it depends on what you want to do.
travel overnight when possible, means you save money on accom.
when do you go? im off there on the 6th july for 4weeks

Hello James

1000Bahts is around 20Euros, isnt it?
That is plenty per day.
It is actually possible to travel with 5 to 10Euros per days. So 20 is comfortable.
Remember to keep around 20 Euros, for the airport departure tax.

there is no 500baht airport tax on departure now, more beer money for you

As everyone else has stated it depends on what you want to do. Wife and I were down in Krabi for a weeks climbing a few weeks ago and apart from our accom' were spending about 1000baht a day between us and having a good time.

enjoy

I read some where that it had gone up to 700 baht. On my way out of Thailand, I had kept enough for this, only to have not needed it. Not sure whether my ticket included the tax? (this was last month)

Hello Laura

When I flew out of thailand, last December, the departure tax, per person was 1000Bahts. There was a special Q, where people had to line up, to pay the departure tax. There was a list of people who had payed and I was on it. The tax must have been included in my ticket, too.
But, I though that Draggons meant, that we no longer have to pay the tax, at all, or it is now always included, in the ticket.
What exactly did u mean, Draggons?

I've been in and out of LOS (Land of Smiles) 3 times in the last couple of months. You do not have to pay the 500baht tax you had to pay in the past, couldn't tell you if it's included in the ticket or not, I don't buy them.
