Basically think we should get a cheeky group together and dooooo it haha!! :) New Year in Oz would be amaze... anytime there is good but NYE in Oz would be the best new year I've had lol! When are you thinking of going Liz/Dan? This is a possible plan... because looking at the weather today I am ever so depressed about how they will have sun right now. This is the first time i've actually found people my age... for full moon parties etc (the last time I found people they were 30s) and they were not up for the same things! I know what you mean I'm just a go with the flow/whatever happens..!! But LA sounds good, I know someone at uni there atm and am incredibly jealous. Do you all have facebook/not really sure how to use this site yet! xx

Quoting RC2012

Hey Guys,

I'm doing pretty much the same route... Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia (maybe more) and then Australia.

At the moment i'm planning to leave early September and going alone, how much money is everyone taking? and when is everyone planning on leaving?

Would be great to have people to meet up with.

I'm hoping to take with me about £5-6k and be out for 6 months (longer if poss). From speaking to a few people that have been out to Thailand before and looking around on a few websites it seems that £1k per month is wayyy more than enough! You can rent luxury apartments for about £300, food is like $2 and drinks like $1 (apparently!) And Cambodia is even cheaper!

So I think you should be able to survive out there for 6 months on £3k even! I'm hoping to take a bit extra though, just in case.

The 1 thing to remember about Australia is that you have to have at least £3.5k in your account for them to let you in aswell.

I did have in my head that I was going to go out in September until New Year, but I think I'm going to go out now at the end of the year or beginning of next year, just so I can save more pennies and go out for longer before (maybe!) finding work out there. What about you Linzie :)? & I'm exactly the same as you, as in just doing whatever ha !

I'm thinking of leaving in September but again im free from July but heard the weather isnt great in July/Aug... + I want to celebrate my 23rd b-day in Thailand which will be early Sept :)

My friend spent 6 months in SE Asia last year and was paying $1 a night for accomadation in Vietnam and spent in total about £3500 which included hospital fees. So £500 a month is enough for anyone I would of thought.

Who else on this thread is thinking of leaving in Sept?
