They work especially well when you don't have any -- money, that is. That might even take care of the drinking problem.

In your case, it sounds like you have too much -- money. But that shouldn't be a problem for long -- or so it seems.

They must have had a bloody awesome time in thailand if they spent that kind of money! I try to curb my spending, but find it hard to do....that is why i am having to work in Oz now to save up again. I find it near impossible to try and stick to a budget as you always find yourself haggling over a matter of pence/cents and not going on day trips to interesting places because they will put you a few dollars over budget! I cant travel like that. The best advice i can give you is to try and cut alcohol out of your trip as much as possible, but by living with six irish people over here i realise that wont happen!

thanks

Yes, budgets can work if you stick to them! Always allow a little wiggle room for something extra you might want to do.

And of course, crap happens, you have to keep a credit card handy for any emergency you have to respond to.

I think your friends need to let us in on their fun vacation secrets! Sounds like they were having a good time.

My husband and I were in Thailand and Cambodia for three weeks, and our entire trip--roundtrip airfare from the Midwestern US, hotel, food, transport, everything--came in around $3000 for both of us, not each. And this was our honeymoon, so we stayed in nicer places. You can find anything you want in Thailand at just about any price if you look long enough. No such thing as a budget. Well, rephrase: whatever your budget is, you can do it in Thailand.
