Living on $1,000 a Month in Bangkok Thailand! Haircuts are a necessity where ever you live. In North America, UK, Australia, or New Zealand, the average haircut for a Guy is around $20…here in Thailand – it’s $5!!! And that’s with shampoo and a scalp massage:) One of the many perks about living in this country is being…pampered:) Service in Thailand is always excellent, and tipping is not necessary. But, you can if you want.
