I need advice on budget

Travel Forums Round the World Travel I need advice on budget

1. Posted by richmayer (First Time Poster 1 posts) 12y Star this if you like it!

i am trying to work out a budget for the amount of money that I am going to need (per day) for each of the following countries:-

South Africa
New Zealand

I will be staying in hostels and trying to eat as cheap as possible.

Can anyone give me a rough idea (on average) of how much money you spent each day when you visited the above mentioned countries.

Thanks in advance.

Go to Lonely Planet's website. They have guides for pretty much every country and in each of them they have a section about budget and average daily expenses

Hostels in NZ are approximately $20NZ (=$16US) per night. Food is pretty cheap. You'll probably need $40-50US daily, at least.

Australia is approximately the same.

Thailand is much cheaper. $900US a month is defenitely enough!
