Hi all,

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?

thanks, nimzyp

It all depends on your budget and whether you are backpacking or want some luxury.

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.
