Below is an indication of some of the prices you may expect in the average supermarket. These prices are given in Thai Baht.
Fruit and Vegetables
Locally grown vegetables are cheap but some familiar vegetables that are difficult to grow in Thailand (such as carrots or broccoli) are comparatively expensive. Similarly, apples are about 15 baht each but you could get a mango for the same price, while in season some popular local fruits like rambutans sell for 15 baht a kilo.
If you donít want to do your own washing, you can usually have it done for you at around 65 baht a kilo or 15 baht an item.
At home, if youíre living alone, your water bill will probably be around 200 baht, your electricity bill around 500 baht, but this will rise dramatically if you make regular use of the air-conditioning for long periods (instead of fans).
Thai food costs
Simple Thai dishes like chicken stir-fried with basil or green curry served over rice are available to take away from street-stalls for around 30 baht.
If youíre tempted by culinary exotica, a bag of crispy fried grasshoppers goes on the street for around 20 baht, snail curry for a little more.
