    For a young backpacker in Bangkok, is 900-1000 baht per DAY excluding accommodation (we have a seperate budget for that) alright?

    Other than it not including accommodation, this also doesn't necessarily include shopping. This is more of a general budget for each day spent in Bangkok and seeing the city.

    Just to add, if anyone has any idea, would these budgets be enough (same conditions as above) for the other places we intend to see?

    Singapore: SGD 65-70/day
    Kuala Lumpur: MYR 100/day
    Hanoi: USD 25-30/day
    Bangkok: THB 900-1000/day
    Phuket: THB 900-1000/day


    (Just to add, I'm personally not a big drinker if that's a factor.)

    I'd say those budgets should be plenty.
