Friends in non frugal island wants me to join them : Frugal
Hey all seeking for some advice
I am what they call a “digital nomad” , working online and living as an expat , I choose Thailand because it’s great place to get value for my money and the weather.
So right now I’m on the go because where i usually live at (Chiang Mai) gets very polluted this time of year.
My friends are staying in this island and they want me to join them.
The problem for me is that place is noticeably more expensive, it is now high season over there and prices are very expensive,
Basically you get shitty value for your money,
It’s still possible to find cheaper options but that also means my living conditions will go down hill (simple hut with no kitchen, no AC in the Thailand heat etc)
I can also go somewhere else in Thailand where its normal Thai prices , but then I will be alone.
I’m kind of conflicted about it , any advice will be much appreciated.
