This video will show you it is easy to live in Thailand on 500 Dollars Per Month
I live good, my present Hotel, the Coral Bungalows cost 6.49 USD per day, I think it goes up 3 dollars during full moon party week. It has a swimming pool, exercise room, and is right on the beach. I have a private room with hot water.

Can you buy the usb aircard (Andy called it a "chip") in the U.S. and use it when you go overseas?
Andy, I'm thinking of going back to Thailand soon and I went to the web site http://www.coralhaadrin.com/index_site.php
and they show the price being 500 thb ($16.32) per night. How were you able to get for only 200 thb per night? How long did you stay? Love following your travel
Never trust what a website has for rates -- they use the web site to rake people. But, during full moon party times, and high season, they probably do get that price. If you are going during Christmas, than nothing is easy.
