Hi am new to this board so if this quetion has been asked a million times then am sorry. Am just curios how much money to take traveling around southeast asia for about 3 or 4 months? I wont be staying in any big hotels or getting flights everything will be done on coaches or train. Basically the cheaper the better ! I was thinking of starting in thailand then cambodia vietnam and back to thailand. i know this is`nt a easy quetion becouse everone differs when traveling. just a rough estimate would do or let me know how much you spent on previous trips.
Oh am 27 and from england .

Thanks paul.......

Yes this has been discussed often. I just answered this in a thread; 'going to bangkok in 4 weeks'. Basically figure $10-15 daily in Thailand, Cambodia, VietNam. There is a wealth of information in older posts and you can tap into the travel helpers for that country. I just got back from VietNam, Cambodia, Thailand. PM me if you want details.

I've just returned from a 3 month trip to SE Asia. I didn't do it the cheapest way or the 5 star way. PM me if you need details of how much things cost, or what you're looking for etc.

Been curious about this question too. I'm taking approximately $3500 USD for approximately 2 months. Plan to do mostly island hopping in Southern Thailand but also go to Bangkok and Chang Mai, Cambodia, Vietnam, Kuala Lumpur, Malaya and Philipines.

I will be there from June-mid August which I know is low/rainy season so hopefully it's a bit cheaper

Anyone care to post their approximate expenses here?
