Yep, soon heading to SE Asia, and I am on low budget, I was just wondering if it would be good idea to take a tent with me. Is there many guesthouses who offers like a garden or place to camp for a night cheap? Idea is not to camp all over SE Asia but to save up some money by not living in guesthouses rooms... Is it worth to take a tent?

I agree that you won't need a tent. Rooms tend to be quite affordable, and those few places that do offer tent space typically offer tents to rent for not much money. Carrying a tent around for the rare times you'd need or use it seems like more work than it is worth.
Or, in other words, no. Cheers.

(Except for a few relatively remote places in upper north Thailand, & in some Thai national parks - but you'll have to pay the inflated entrance fee for foreigners on top of a fee for a place to pitch your tent, which can negate any savings.)
Take a tent only if you are going mountaineering. It doesn't sound like that is your plan so I would have to agree with the others that it is not worth the trouble.
Thanks guys, after reading answers I don't have any doubts anymore.
