one month budget - Itinerary Thai, Camb, Laos???
4th July, 2006
Ive read about the 20$ a day average for Thailand, Cambodia, Laos - Just wondering if anyone has done a similar trip and could give me a ballpark budget. I'm also torn as to whether I should fly or take a bus/train between countries. As it stands now, Im looking to fly in and out from bangkok. I'll be arriving in the beginning of September and Would like to avoid the rainiest of places if at all possible!
Any info would be much appreciated!

If you're planning on seeing all three countries in a month, your budget will need to be higher as you'll be doing a lot of travel. While travel is relatively inexpensive, you'll still be on the road every few days and these costs will add up.
Assuming you stick to land transport (bear in mind the low cost carriers do not fly to Laos at the moment), I'd say a budget of US$30-35 would leave you a reasonable margin for over-spending.
Rain won't be too much of an issue in Thailand, but in Laos and Cambodia it does slow down the transport a little -- it still costs the same though ;-)
For suggested routes, please take a look at our trip planner section.
