Hiya, im just tryin to work out my budget at the min, after payin for my flights etc..

The plan is, arrive in madras, india (i dont have to pay accommodation there), then follow the mekong river through to bangkok! through out my trip i'll generally be seein the sight, taking photos, nothing too extreme! (not until i get to bali anyway!! ha ha ha!! :))

i was just enquiring whether the amount ive stated above, be enough for waht ive planned? i dont know whether that's last me a month? possibly more?

i know this is a bit of a broad question, but its just so i get an idea of costs!! bany suggestions/advice would be very much appreciated!! ;)

cheers

Andy :)

with 1.500 pounds you could stay alive (easily) for atleast 4 months, five months is more likely. Enjoy your trip

Well Asia is very cheap for a westerner. I have travelled trough India with approx. 400-450 euro per month including transport, food and accomodation. Don't expect staying in 5 star de luxe hotels for that money.

450 euro = 300 pounds per month. Cheers

What are the prices like in Bali?

That amount of money should get you through a couple of months if you stick with budget accomodation.

Bali is very cheap!
