I required a memory card as one of the spare card I had was not working. I went to a shop near my hotel. Those Staffs that were there at that shop they welcomed me. They helped me with the right card. Following that when I chose the right one and when I give my card to pay they said," You might have to pay extra tax using this card. Please pay through cash" Of course all these efforts were though Google translator. In fact, I got an extra 10% off and the final amount I paid was approximately half of what I paid here. It truly does not mean everything is good and flawless. Yes, there are stories and articles suggesting us that not everything is out there is fine. True there can be a worst day of your life that can change the perspective but the very same time you will have to understand this can happen with anyone any single day anywhere in this world.

Coming to the second half of this section, Yes Thailand is cheap and very much affordable. If you plan it good I believe 25000 INR (Roughly 350 USD, Depending upon season also) including flights (Ex-Kolkata) is more than sufficient to travel most of the places in Thailand. Yes, there are markets and stalls where you can get literally everything. Apple products running on Android and Android mobiles running on Mac. All aspects are possible.
Bangkok has plenty of shopping malls that suit all kinds of lifestyles and budgets. With onsite facilities like food courts, supermarkets, cinemas, games arcades, and multiscreen cinemas, it's quite easy to spend an entire day exploring a single mall in Bangkok. The city's best shopping malls offer unforgettable shopping experiences, in terms of diversity of products, accessible location in downtown areas, and overall shopping satisfaction. Whether you are looking for the most upscale, the trendiest, the funkiest, or the most specialised, you'll find them in this extensive list.
Cheap is something that can have both sides associated. If you consider it just the way Thais consider it yes they are cheap. But you will have to associate this fact that our currency is weaker. So, if you buy a water bottle in 10 Bath there, it means approx. 25 Rupee here. As a traveller, if you are visiting a place just to enjoy the place and landscapes obviously your expenditure will be far lesser than that of someone going on a leisure vacation. With all the luxury on offer cost of your travel will automatically increase and this can never be marginal. Also, you can bargain at almost every market. So on this front, I would rather say,"you will have to be little generic with your thought process. Yes, the place is cheap in one sense and I believe it is in a good sense".
