SEA 11 weeks Itinerary and budget query

Posted by tarakelly09 on 16/4/2012 at 14:10

Hi,

Myself and my boyfriend are looking to travel around southeast Asia this summer for around 10-11 weeks. We were thinking of flying into Singapore and then making our way to Kuala Lumpa (1week), we then will travel to Borneo for 1 week and head from there to Thailand (3weeks), Laos (1week), Cambodia (1 week) and Vietnam (3 weeks). Im just wondering if we are trying to pack in too much in the time we have? And also, a budget of 200euro a week with about 800 to spare will be enough for us?

Thanks,
Tara

Cut Borneo as it involves a flight and you're only planning on spending a week there. Add this time on to Laos and/or Cambodia. Itinerary doesn't look too bad otherwise although maybe cut Laos or Cambodia as well and keep it more relaxed.

Singapore/Malaysia - 10 days
Thailand - 3 weeks
Cambodia or Laos - 3 weeks
Vietnam - 3 weeks

Also, €200 a week is a realistic budget. It won't allow for too much flashiness but it's very do-able.

My budget solo was aprox. $30 a day, or if you prefer 1000 - 1200 baht. Sometimes less, sometimes more, depends on your activity. Singapore isn't that cheap however.
