Do you think $3000 is enough for 60 days. I'm going to be going to northern thailand, thai islands, laos, cambodia and maybe vietnam. I dont want to rough it all the time and I'd like to go scuba diving a few times. Do you think $3000 US dollars is enough

its all for spending while there so excluding pre departure costs. Already a certified diver so not gonna need to do a course. Probably 2 to 3 internal flights and will use busses and trains for the rest.
How much should one budget for accomodation and food and drinks per day. Will $3000 be alright and a pretty comfortable budget??

My friends and I always said: "$1000 per month plus major expenses"
That's about $33 a day. MANY people do it cheaper than that. However, I like to budget a few extra to ensure a really good time.
Anyway, your $3000 should totally be enough. Your daily budget should range from $20-$40 a day (depending on your own spending habits). But even if you spend $40 a day on average, that would leave you $600 for internal flights and many dives. Not to mention $40 a day would leave room for phat dinners, beer and some shopping.
Just be smart, bargain when you can, take the public transportation when you can, etc. (there are more tips everywhere on this website)
Have a blast!!!
