That's just about what I spent this year in Thailand and Vietnam. I averaged US$50. a day (approx $1500. a month) and I lived like a king. I bought loads of gifts, stayed in very nice guesthouses and ate mostly shellfish in homey restaurants. Some countries will be more expensive (I believe Singapore is expensive, like HK, Malaysia less so, Thailand less than Malaysia, and Indochina will be lowest of all). In my opinion, you'll have a better time in the cheaper countries too (I did!)

£2k for 2 months is loads in SE Asia if you are staying in basic accommodation and eating cheap food. I'd say I spent close to half that when I was in SE Asia, ie I think I averaged about £500- £600 per month living pretty frugally but still seeing everything I wanted to.
