Ive lived in Thailand on £3.50 a day before so that would equal £322... £3000 is easily enough, too much really, however depends heavily on where you are staying, eating etc. This time i'm going to budget £20 a day so that £1840 for 3 months and I will be eating in proper restaurants and decent hotels..

btw... that £3.50 was for accommodation and food/drink!

No, please ask more! Travelling is one of my favorite topics, hence joining these forums.

Cambodia is generally cheaper than Thailand. Vietnam is inbetween the both. £20 a day will deffinatley suffice even in the big citys. This summer I will be in India, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam, £20 a day is easily enough for this. What I like to do though is have a side budget for travel expenses of around £200. Just keeps everything easier to manage.

Where abouts are you going in Thailand out of interest, also the time you go will have a impact on prices but once again, £20 per day is deffinatley enough!

1,000 GBP a month is plenty for someone your age. Once in SEA, you will meet others that will give you tips on saving money. Good luck.

One point to add, ive done this quite a few times so I know £20 a day will be a luxury for me but im used to staying in very basic accomodation. Why not start with £25 a day to be safe? After a few weeks im sure you wont even be spending £20. You will be suprised what you can get for your money, even in Thailand. A 16 hour coach (including night boat) from BKK to Koh Phangan costs around £16!
