33Fact: you will not manage on 450B a day, period. Oh sure, we can sit here and debate it all night, and lots of people will show how it's possible. Who cares what's possible in theory. The reality is you will not survive on that amount. It's as simple as that.
Not sure why people care about the price of beer at 7-11. When your friends are all going out for dinner and drinks what do you say? No thanks, I prefer to buy my beer at 7-11 and drink alone in my room. Anyway, on 450B you can't afford beer from 7-11 either. You can't afford anything. See how that works? So once again in case you missed it - you will not be surviving on 450B a day in Thailand. You can take that to the bank.

37mozziebite hit the nail on the head, look at the foreign panhandlers
In BBK .A
450 is no fun because people like this
But move that up to 700 per day if you cut down on the time or save some more money. could be done
I personally know people doing this but they are long stays
yes the have it hard but they are happy..
In the end they are filling some sort of void in the life some make it most others do not...
Would I want to try NW
Should You No.......
Think of friends and family that could have the job of looking for you if you go of the deep end.
INSURANCE if you are worrying about funds i am 99.9 % sure y0u will not deal with it..
Stay home and watch The beach save some money and go for it a little later.
