Hmmm, good question...

Is this including a flight?
What kind of accommodation will you be using (staying with friends/family anywhere)?
Will you be working?

And maybe most important, what countries will you be visiting (more time in SE Asia saves money vs more time in Europe will cost you more...)

Let us know and I'll try and produce some numbers (with full disclaimers obviously )

Cheers,

Sam

Assuming those destinations cost roughly the same as Australia, I would go for at least 50 AUD a day including accomm/food and maybe some tours. With acccomm at 20+ a day (hostel bed), that might even be cutting it tight depending on the amount of partying you plan to do but it is doable. And if you are really living off noodles, you could shave more off that too.

That's without your flight, insurance etc. though. Any work income (if you are planning to) would help cover costs. Also, staying away from the big cities helps I find. Especially when it comes to the cost of living/partying :)

For SE Asia that kind of money will very comfortably be enough.
