    I have been looking at hotel and Airbnb prices, and it seems Kuala Lumpur has some better deals than Bangkok. Which got me wondering about cost of living.

    Is Thailand pretty expensive these days for your average expat or tourists

    KL does have a ton of condos for rent on Airbnb, but I think Bangkok is catching up past few years…. I don’t know why but the Thais are less tech savvy because of the poor English I think

    This is in fact common in smaller, poorer nations. Laos is also more expensive than Thailand, Myanmar also for many things. Because they lack imports and materials, and there is not many options to choose from. So the prices go up. Supply and demand 101

    Same as most of island nations.

    Vientiane is also tiny, with not many good Hotels. so the price is driven very high.

    Singapore is so boring, I can’t imagine living there for long term and paying that price for any reason…
