Living in Thailand for affordable 20,000 baht a month

Living in Thailand can be extremely expensive or (despite a notable picking up of prices during the last 10 years) releatively cheap, depending on your habits of living. I found the following list on a website: 170 baht – average cost of a retirement visa, divided by 12 - for other visa types, note ...
