Country Costs

Ban Phe is a very inexpensive place to live! It is possible to survive on a budget of £10 per day in Thailand and this is of course one of the reasons for its popularity amongst tourists and travellers. Dollar cost for: Hot meal 1.00, Bottle of beer 1.20, Bottle of water 0.20, 20-minute motorbike taxi ride 0.50

Thai food and drink is cheap and basic accommodation is abundant but costs will rise if you want to eat Western food and stay in more expensive resorts and hotels. It is possible to find worthwhile entertainment to meet even the most stringent of budgets.

Visa Requirements

Visitors to Thailand are required to have a passport valid for at least six months from the date of arrival. Student entry is permitted on a Tourist Visa allowing you to stay for a maximum of sixty days. This can be extended for an additional thirty days at the discretion of the Thai Immigration Office. Holders of Tourist Visas are required to enter the country within ninety days of the visa being issued.

On entering Thailand you may be asked to prove that you are in possession of a ticket for return or onward travel.

The standard of health care is surprisingly high in Thailand especially in areas with a high tourist population. Whilst vaccinations are not strictly necessary for entry into Thailand it is advisable to consult your doctor regarding anti-malaria medications well in advance of your departure.
