    Penang Cost of Living for 6 Weeks

    Can you believe I stayed in Penang for nearly 45 days? When I was taking care of my accommodation and travel plans before arriving, I actually thought it would be nice to settle for a little bit more than a month for once.

I’m sharing my Penang cost of living below, but I also previously wrote about a few other places I’ve lived if you’re interested in reading those! As…

    Bangkok Cost of Living for 1 Month

    One of the most useful things I’ve discovered while traveling is other people breaking down their costs for any given city. Seeing average amounts spent on accommodation and food really helps me narrow down where I plan to travel.
