Im a 20years old girl from Portugal flying with my boyfriend to Bangkok in 2014 during our summer break from school that goes from early july to the beginning of september. Since we're not gonna be able to spend a lot of money we were thinking about staying no more than 5 weeks there.
We saw pretty much all our options and we wished to do thailand-cambodia-vietnam-laos-thailand all by land but we are scared it will give us very little time to enjoy the places, because even though we are not gonna spend a lot of money traveling since we are going by land, more time traveling also means more money for guesthouses/food etc.
We were also thinking about changing to thailand (not sure yet if going to chiang mai) - siem reap for angkor wat - back to bangkok - fly to bali - fly to bangkok then home.
We much prefer to stay longer than to stay in fancy places eating in restaurants etc. We are also not looking for partying, drinking and that kind of stuff so no money spent there. We basically want to experience the asian culture, temples and natural beauty.
We are young and we will have to save a lot for this trip but it will be like a dream come true to us.
Any ideias for our itinerary or ways of saving money?
thank you in advance.
