I love Southeast Asia and have spent over a year backpacking Southeast Asia in total over multiple trips. For this 3 months in Southeast Asia trip, I travelled it on a backpacker budget and kept notes of how much I spent in Southeast Asia whilst visiting 4 countries in 3 months!

I wasn’t on a super strict backpacker budget for these 3 months in Southeast Asia but I didn’t spend a lot of money either. So here is a break down of how much I spent which I hope shows you that you can visit Southeast Asia on a budget too!

Cost of Countries in South East Asia

Overall I was really happy with how much I spent. Vietnam was definitely the cheapest Country, followed by Myanmar which I was pleasantly surprised by.

I knew the Philippines was going to be a bit more expensive than other South East Asian Countries but I thought I’d spend more than I did.

I was in Thailand over Christmas and New Year so I paid more on accommodation than normal plus I had a lot of nights out which increased how much I spent but that’s what I was there for so it was ok!

 

Tips for Southeast Asia on a Budget:

The total costs for Vietnam and Myanmar includes their visa costs- £40.00 for Vietnam and £34.00 for Myanmar.

I visited Thailand over Christmas and New Year so accommodation was a lot more expensive than I would have usually paid so on any other month other than December this would be a fair few hundred pound less.

In all countries I could of done the accommodation cheaper, I barely stayed in hostels and instead shared a private room with friends which cost a bit more.

In the Philippines, I paid for 4 internal flights which are included in the above cost and in Vietnam I paid for return internal flights to Phu Quoc island from HCMC which are also included in the above price.

The above totals do not include flights between countries, I  was pretty flexible with the dates I could go and only booked them a week or so before I left but if they had been booked further in advance they could have been cheaper.

Cost of Flights in Southeast Asia

HCMC, Vietnam- Yangon, Myanmar: £43.00

Yangon, Myanmar- Bangkok, Thailand: £50.00

Phuket, Thailand- Manila, Philippines: £75.00

Manila, Philippines- Bangkok, Thailand: £70.00
