I am trying to work out a budget for the amount of money that I am going to need (per day) for each of the following countries:-
I will be staying in hostels and trying to eat as cheap as possible.
Can anyone give me a rough idea (on average) of how much money you spent each day when you visited the above mentioned countries.
Thanks in advance.
Considering cheap accomodation + no fancy restaurant x 3 meals a day + cheap transportation (e.g. buses or rail transit)
Thailand = US$25-30
Cambodia = US$50-70
Malaysia = US$30-35
Singapore = twice malaysian price
You sure? all my books says $15/day for Cambodia and even less for thailand
best bet is to use the rough guides or lonley planet books, stay in the backpacker areas, in bangkock, siem reap, stay near the river in phom pehn, backpacker area in saigon and hue and hanoi. very much on budget. have fun
Of the countries you mention Singapore is the expensive one. Better make that a short visit. Thailand and Cambosia are both very cheap if you don't mind rouging it a bit.
i spent/ripped hell lot in cambodia and i didnt know why, i wasnt on backpackin trip
I was there a couple of years ago so this may have changed some and it really depends on how much your drink.
Don't forget to budget for transport and unexpected happenings.
Super - thanks for the heads up!
Also I was wondering how cheap it is to travel around by public transport in these places?
