Prices in Tesco Lotus in Phuket (Thailand) and the market in 2016

I was asked to go take a picture of prices in Tesco, which I and did at our last visit. It is forbidden to shoot there, so I did not photograph everything. True, we and Tesco are quite small, not hypermarket, so the rest is better to look at their website. Actually, these prices can also be found on the site, there is everything goods and cost is always relevant. No only yellow price tags, when sell something. For example, we bought laundry detergent for 120 baht 3 kg, on the website there is no such price.

Whether prices are rising in Thailand

Everyone asks if it has become more expensive in Thailand. In short, in Thailand is not much more expensive, prices are about the same, but for those Whose ruble income has become 2 times more expensive in any country, and Thailand has nothing to do with it. If you earn in dollars, then for you not much has changed.

According to my observations, I compare it with photos of prices from the past wintering, prices in the supermarket increased only slightly. By the way, in Russia, prices have increased very noticeably, 1.5-2 times for some position, visible to the naked eye. But because of the dollar rate when converted to rubles in Thailand, everything became sharply more expensive. I.e you can not pay much attention to price increases in supermarkets in baht, as this exchange rate covers all price increase in baht in Tae with a vengeance. The main problem is in exchange rate, if it were not for him, Tai would continue to remain cheap for many Russians.

But the prices of fruits on the market increased. However, I have not been to this in Phuket during the peak season, so I can only compare with Samui. Maybe in Phuket last year it was like that? So, now Mango I buy an average of 100 baht / kg, once I bought 60 and 80, but it was so so. Papaya 40-60 baht / kg, pomelo 40-50 baht for piece, a large bunch of bananas 50 baht, pineapples 3 pieces for 100 baht, small chishchenny pineapple 30 baht / pc, durian 150 baht / kg.

If we are not talking about food, then everything is about the same. Normal house can still be rented for 10-20 thousand baht in depending on the location, season, novelty, etc., and the bike for 3-5 thousand baht depending on the model. Gasoline, on the contrary, has become cheaper.

With our last visits, the mango was not in Tesco. But a week we bought it back there for 100 baht / kg. Just forgot take a picture of oatmeal, it costs 40-50 baht for 500 gr.

Ordering Tesco products from home

In this winter, we decided to try ordering food from Tesco to the house. This is quite a handy thing, the benefit of our delivery is free, and prices the same. Delivery is not in all regions, but we have in Phuket there is. The only hitch is with the address, because we live on an incomprehensible street, and addresses in Thailand are pretty confused. Hope delivery to we get and then we can write about this post too. Although it’s pretty simple, the main thing is to find out the address from the owner, he required for registration. UPDATE. I wrote about the delivery in the post – Delivery from Tesco – instruction.

And if something in my photos is not, you can always go to the Tesco online store website and see the prices there, all the same the most.

P.S. If someone else needs from the prices, write. If i know I will answer. In Big C, the price tags are about the same. Soon I will go to Central Festival, but I don’t think it’s someone’s shopping there the bulk of the wintering budget.
