Am embarking on a small trip though south east asia and australasia in November 2007 - through to Jan 2008.
Was hoping i could get some suggestions/tips on places to stay in Sydney/Christchurch and Ko Phi Phi, Koi Phangan, Ko Samui and Bangkok.
Also, how much money do you think i will need for accomodation/and spending throughout this period?
It all depends on your budget and whether you are backpacking or want some luxury.
going to stay budget throughout, hope your able to help.
YEah i'm looking for good accomodation in Ko Samui too.
I've never been to Thailand - but in Sydney I stayed in The Wake Up. This was a fantastic hostel, although a bit expensive compared to others. I also stayed at The George on George Street. This was also a good place and a bit cheaper.
In Christchurch I stayed at Charlie B's. This was a good hostel. The location was pretty central and there was a great kitchen and decent bathroom. I also heard good things about the Base Backpackers which was in a really central location.
Hope this helps
I stayed in both of the YHAs in christchurch and both were good. in sydney i stayed at Base backpackers which i would also recommend.
the area you want to head to in bangkok is soi rambuttri/khao san road, where there are numerous budget options.
