    My friend and I are looking to travel SE Asia in our summer break next year. We have about ten weeks and potentially around £3000 - £4000 each to play with (this to include flights)... HELP!

    As two young girls travelling for the first time we would really like some recommendations of fairly safe places to visit where we can soak up the culture, feel like we're having an adventure and party along the way.. We have Thailand down as a must and would really like to visit Cambodia and Vietnam.. where else is worth a visit?

    We really need recommendations of the best places to go and the best way to go about it:
    Where do we go? How long in each city? Is it worth getting involved in volunteer work? Do we plan a lot or go with the flow?

    We're not too concerned about info on visas, insurance etc as we need to get a rough idea of an itinerary and transport first

    Any help would be amazing, thanks!

    If you really want answers, ask specific questions. This sort of "I'm going to se asia tell me what to do" query is unlikely to drum up m/any responses.

    Hi My G/F and I are currently travelling in the areas you mentioned. I am unsure of what the costs from home to Asia will cost. We spend about $35 AUD per day on average for accommodation , travel by bus and train and food. We stay in hotels and guest houses mainly. We don't plan much just see what falls our way. One great touristy place was Dalat ( Vietnam ) but was cold. The best advice is to ask other travellers you will bump into so don't plan too much. Also we get our visas organised before we get to the borders. It is cheaper and faster. Have fun and stay safe. Peter
