San Francisco – Living Without Car
The real estate experts at Redfin named San Francisco the best city in America for people who “don’t want a car, but still want to get around.” They observed American cities with populations in exceed of 300,000 and voted San Francisco #1 for walking, biking and transit. San Francisco was ranked highest overall followed by New York City, Boston and Washington D.C.
It’s a fact that most people in San Francisco don’t own cars and they can reach every neighborhood in San Francisco by walking and public transportation can basically get you anywhere you need to go. Also, it’s extremely expensive in San Francisco if you want to own a home that has parking – one need to plan an addition of 300,000 $ to the cost of your home.

Hi there. Yesterday I published the last Part C where I have concluded that I will need to spend more than 250,000 ฿ (almost 7,200 $) a month in New York if I want to maintain same lifestyle that costs me 95,000 ฿ (about 2,700 $) here in Asoke Bangkok Thailand. This calculation is probably quite specific for my own lifestyle, even though it may be some good indicator for other expats. I took into account food, utilities, consumer goods, sports and, certainly, real estate expenses to compare cost of living between two cities. I may need to add cost of health services – this may be of interest for many expats, especially those from New York, where cost of health insurance and doctor visits getting higher and higher. It may be a good topic for one of next articles.
Here I would like to complete calculation for comparing cost of living in Asoke Bangkok and Sydney Australia, as started in Part B.
How much it would cost me in Sydney to maintain my same Asoke Bangkok lifestyle?
We already know that consumer prices (excluding Real Estate rent) in Sydney are 76% higher than in Bangkok, restaurant prices in Sydney are 182% higher than in Bangkok, and groceries Prices in Sydney are 51% higher than in Bangkok

Hi there. Last week I started this “project” of comparing cost of living in Bangkok and New York. I have done it in a non-traditional way that is, however, relevant for me, and, probably, for some of readers. My way of comparing is based on a fact, that spend 95,000 ฿ (around 2,700 $) a month to maintain a certain lifestyle here in my condo in Asoke Bangkok.
How much it would cost me in New York to maintain my same Asoke Bangkok lifestyle?
In parts A and B we already compared cost of food, transportation and other expenses, excluding real estate and salaries. My calculation shows that consumer prices (excluding apartment rent) in New York are more than 2 times higher than in Asoke Bangkok. Restaurant prices in New York are almost 4 times higher than in Bangkok. And groceries prices in New York are almost double of those in Asoke Bangkok.
