    Hi All

    Just wondering what sort of budget I need to be looking at for 6 weeks in Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia.
    My friend and I are travelling together and plan to either stay in private rooms at hostels or budget hotels. How much a day should we budget for, in australia or US dollars?

    Thanks!

    Hey there

    No real hostels in my experience of SE Asia but budget hotels are ten a penny. Generally no need to book in advance - arrive somewhere, have a rough idea of where you'd like to stay in that town/city and then just go scope out the available accomodation and by all means haggle a little.

    Only six weeks for three countries probably means moving around quite a bit, which will increase your costs.

    Very ballpark I'm gonna say 2,000 USD (per person) will leave you comfortable for 6 weeks (excluding your flights to and from home). That's just under 50 USD per day, which many on here may consider excessive and certainly more than enough to get by on.

    Good luck!
