Cost of living in Thailand.

All these single people teach english in Thailand. Reported monthly expenses range from 350 to 700. One family of four reported 1,100. Today's exchange rate is 37/1.

Would members currently living there now comment on these expenses? They look quite alright to me.

Darn. This time last year, it was over 40/1. That's over a 7% drop in value and that assumes prices haven't changed, right.
I look to the present moment because that's where I live my life.
