    Fairly frequently we see questions on what budget someone needs to travel in the region. Its a difficult question to answer, of course, as everyone spends their money in different ways.

    But, generally, travellers spend money on the same, or similar things. Accomodation, food, drink (especially beer probably), travel, convenience stores.

    So, please let us know what things cost as you travel about, however mundane the item may seem. I'm sure it will help people get a better idea of what kind of budget they may need for their travels. Also, the kind of place you bought it, as obviously a beer from a simple bar is going to cost less than from a 5 star hotel.
