The area you decide to live in will dictate your cost of living. If you choose a bigger city so you have access to other westerners, your cost of living will be high. Although in comparison, still not as high as you'd find living in a major metropolitan city in the United States. If you are able to live in a more rural area where you can immerse yourself in Thai culture, you will find more cost effective options.
