    I am currently in the very early stages of planning a trip to SEA with my partner. We plan to fly to singapore and spend maybe a week and then 3 weeks in malaysia (including Sarawak and Sabah)and about 3 weeks in indonesia (Mainly Java but possibly Sumatra and Sulawesi).

    Would like any advice on how much this would cost (on a per day basis).
    Would $10000 NZD cover this excluding the initial flight to singapore? (as of now $10000NZD = $70000 USD, or 5700 EUR.

    We would be doing it on the budget but would like to stay safe and clean. We would not be partying or drinking and prefer a mix of city (singapore, kuala lumpur, Jakarta) and Nature and getting off the beaten track.

    Is this time-frame ok, or too short?

    (any advice on great locations?)

    Hi Joshua,

    Did you ever go on this trip?

    I stumbled on your thread, and the questions you're asking are exactly the same as ours. My partners and I are flying to Singapore in about 6 weeks for a 7-week trip from NZ. We want to keep it to around $10,000NZD or appx. $7,800USD and see Malaysian Borneo, Singapore, Sumatra, Java and Bali, though we'd consider switching to Sulawesi and dropping one of the others on advice from someone.

    Sorry to see that no one ever came to your aid, but I'm hoping maybe if you have now gone, that you might have lessons from experience to share. Otherwise, if anyone else out there is watching this thread, any info would be appreciated.
