    Hey guys,
    We're planning on going to Thailand and Cambodia for just over a month from December to beginning of Feb. We're trying to work out our budget, and we've worked out (not experienced backpackers but with use of travelfish) that on average for food, accom, transport etc per day we would spend nz$28, which is THB 593. Is this too much/too less? Is it realistic? We're not looking to be flashpackers or to stay in the lowest of low backpackers either!

    Any advise would be amazing. Thankyou =]

    593tb per day is not enough. If you want to take somthing home, take some guided tours etc..., you ll need 1000tb per day per person...(3 day pass to angkor costs 60usd)..
    Anyway, you ll spend 1/3 of your money in first two weaks, then you ll get the feeling of prices and spend less in the rest of your trip..

    You mean each right? not for the two of you? Assuming it's 593 each, I'd say it is a bit tight -- certainly doable, but not all that much fun. Add a couple of hundred baht a day to say 800-1,000B a day and I think you'll be more comfortable and be eating more than just fried rice every day.
