Bangkok is the ultimate place for backpackers. Constantly buzzing with the tourists this place is best out there. The place has a vibrant nightlife & best of the places. An easy access to this place from India makes it even more famous among Indian tourists.
I am a budget traveler & often on shoestring budget it becomes very necessary to keep a check on budget. I travelled to Bangkok & Pattaya for a 4 days trip & I did it under 15k INR. Here is the guide how I did it.
Use public transport, public transport is cheap in Bangkok & easily available. Even taxi's are equipped with meters so it is easy to keep a track on your proceedings.
Eating at restaurants is costly affair if you are a vegetarian, I ate at streets & eating on streets was cheap. A plate of noodle costs Rs 36 rest maths is easy.
Staying in two or three star hostels is costly compared to hostels. If traveling solo, stay in hostels. Hostels are fun place to be in you can even have company of other tourists. Make friends in hostel & travel as far as you want.
