  • How much does it cost in Thailand?

    Today I went to the auto shop to get my Thai built Isuzu pickup truck fixed. After all these years in Thailand, I still think of shop rates back home when I get my truck fixed in Thailand and get a bit scared. Today was a happy day for me with the dealer shop rate being about 300 baht an hour. That Thai auto shop rate would cost you at least $100 an hour in your home country. I got both engine belts changed, a new timing belt, got my tir4s balanced and rotated and an oil change for about $76. They also washed my truck inside and out for free! I can't forget the cute little Thai honey that worked at the dealership that took care of me with a constant stream of fresh coffee - not the 3 in 1 crap, but from a coffee machine - and plates of tasty cookies. All that served with a smile and in and out of the auto shop in just under 1.5 hours. You really can't be the cost of getting a vehicle repaired in Thailand, nor can you beat the service the Thai workers at the dealership dish out!

    Cheese is crazy here. 4000 baht for a sliver of it. A Thai meal is cheap 30 to 60 baht here versus $10 back home. If you are eating on the street that is!

      I think it depends on the cheese. I'm a big fan of the cheeses produced by the Caroline Cheese Company which is in Pak Chong, not far from Khao Yai National Park. They produce a big range of reasonably priced cheeses, including a lovely Feta that is great in salads. I think it's 160 baht for 200 grams. They also have a very nice shredded pizza cheese (high fat Mozzarella) and a really delicious fresh Mozzarella packed in water. They also have Cheddar, cream cheese, rich fresh cream and many other dairy products. Good, locally produced stuff at reasonable prices.

        Where do they have it for cheap in Korat? The grocery in The Mall? I know they have a lot of imports in their cheese fridge but did not see this brand there.

          I actually posted a typo. It was 400 baht not 4000 baht! How are you doing Buadhai? Is that Caroline cheese pretty good then?

            The Caroline cheese is in the regular dairy section, not the separate section where they have all the high priced imported cheese. It is pretty good stuff.

            I'm doing fine, Thanx!
