Asia eh?
Any particular place or are you just going to ask the travel agent for a flight to the capital of Asia and see where it takes you? Because it will probably make a difference on your budget. Bangladesh will cost you a fraction of what Japan will cost, whereas Mongolia and Uzbekastan might be somwhere in the middle. Thailand is excellent value, but start saving up for Bhutan.

Sorry, I tired, but I couldn't help the sarcasm.

I just realised that this was your first post and you are probably thinking "what a bunch of jerks on this board". Really, we're nice people and can be quite helpful. We just need more specific questions and as much info as you think is relevant....such as what country you are going to, what activities you plan to do, and what sort of traveller you are ie: the backpacker-public bus riding-street food eating-hosteller type, or the train riding-restaurant eating-a/c hotel type. It makes a big difference on your budget.

Yes, many fairly polite, well meaning people will be willing to help if you put a little more thought and some more details into your question.... Do you mean SE Asia?? What are you interested in as far as traveling-- great culture? temples? beaches? trekking? partying? Where you go and how expensive depends on what you want to do..

(and as a fellow Canadian I think the sarcastic answer was well deserved..)
