Ø Selecting Location- As like in most of the places of the world, the cost of accommodation differs as per the choice of the location in Thailand Islands. The bungalow in the central beach is very close to the airport or seaport and is full of thriving nightlife. Thus, this place will have double cost as that of same bungalow in the remote quiet beach. But at the same time, you also need to consider that accessibility is a big issue in the Thailand Islands, thus taxi fares as well as taxi boat fares are according to the accommodation rates. In case, you are willing to join social activities and busy nightlife, then you should stay very close to airport or seaport, otherwise you should arrive at remote beach. In this way, you can save around 60% on the accommodation rates this way.
Ø Communication- For the purpose of communication, use of cellular phone from outside of Thailand can be very expensive. In order to save communication costs, you should purchase local cellular phone along with prepaid SIM card. However, costs for these services can differ. If you choose to call overseas from the office of your resort, it will be really very expensive.
