My two friends and I want to visit our friend in Perth this summer. We're from ireland and want to visit other places too while we're all the way over the other side of the world.
We went to travel agent and roughly planned 1st stop, 1st week bangkok thailand.
week 2: laos, cambodia, vietnam.
week 3: perth.
week 4: sydney
week 5: new zealand
& max 5days in LA.
All the flights are going to cost us €1241.00 which is fine.
But its the spending money we're worried about. We want to try cut down by one or two weeks or take out any expensive place to stay in.
I know south east asia is going to be cheapest, and probably LA the most expensive.
Our priorities are Perth, LA, Thailand.
Any ideas what countries/places we can cut out or add in instead? I was thinkin sydney but isn't that supposed to be amazing? Anyway personal experiences would really appreciated and also how much money did you need/want?
And also i've been to bangkok before so i know what thats like. But i'm worried my 2 friends aren't going to like vietnam, cambodia and laos. I'm up for anything but i'd rather not go if they're gona complain.
Maybe some of the gorgeous islands like phuket would be better?
All help appreciated thanks!
