Cost Of Living In Chiang Mai -2024

Chiang Mai is one of the most livable cities in Asia, and many credit the cost of living here as a key factor.

Thailand, as a whole, is more affordable than much of the more “developed” world, and Chiang Mai is consistently rated as one of its least expensive cities.

There is a lot of value on offer, thanks to its cultural diversity, spectacular nature and landscapes on its doorstep, a wide range of top-quality food, and ease of getting around. 

The many digital nomads who keep returning, expats on long-term visas, and retirees planning to live out the best of their days here, will all point to the day-to-day cost of living as a major motive for being in Chiang Mai.

As well as low costs, you are also likely find similar, if not better, standards than you are used to in the most surprising places.

We’ve gathered and broken down the latest information on the cost of living in Chiang Mai for 2024 in this series of articles.
