Easily enough. I spent 6 weeks there 3 months ago and spent US$2500 all in. Stuff like clothes and gifts to take back, accomodation, food, travel. And I didn't stint myself. Just keep an eye on what you have spent, take a small book and write your available balance in it every night. Helped me no end to know whether I should cut down on spending for a couple of days to keep within budget.

The most expensive things are hotels (if you go upmarket), tours and hiring cars.

If you are travelling via buses, staying in 500-800 baht ghs and eating thai food it will be cheap for you. $1800 would be plenty if you do that.
