Food- you can eat cheaply in Bangkok by sticking to street food, market and mall food courts. You can have a meal with a bottle of water for around $1.50 (48.84THB)-3.00(97.68THB) in a mall food court in the evening. And have wide range of foods including pizzas, Indian food, Middle-Eastern food, Mexican food and most other cuisines you can think of.
