Hi Everyone,

I know its done to death on here regarding Budgets. but here goes:

My plan is

Singapore - 1 Week
Vietnam - 3 Weeks
Cambodia - 2 Weeks
Laos or Burma - 2 Weeks
Thailand 2/3Weeks
Malaysia 2 Weeks

My South Eastern Budget is £3k ($4,700 roughly). £1000 a month.
I'll be using a combo of Hostels and Couchsurfing for accommodation. From what I've been told by friends who have been have said it should be fine.

Thanks for any advice.

Should be more than enough, particularly if you're couchsurfing. A week in Singapore will be your priciest week but it still won't impact too much.

For SEA, a rule of thumb I would use is $1k per month.

That is plenty of money. I know a guy that travels through India on £100 a week and the cost of living is about the same as elsewhere in SEA.

It will give you about £30 a day which should be fine if you live in medium rent accommodation and eat like the locals. It will still leave you plenty of money for transport and a few beers!!
