Southeast Asia is a cheap region as compared to other regions of the world such as Europe. One of the reasons why corporate slaves around the world chose this region is because it is inexpensive and fun at the same time. You can spend a day in Singapore, Malaysia, and Vietnam and much more in the region in as little as $15 per day but to be more realistic, you are on a vacation and shopping is a must, so $25 per day is the best you can spend.
James Frazer-Mann traveling experience to southeast Asia has gifted him with certain insights that I am about to share with you in this article as to what can be done to save as much money as possible while traveling in Southeast Asia.
Accommodation is one of the most expensive things you have to pay for while traveling. If you are someone who wore their traveling shoes alone then the couch surf is the best option for you because you get it for free. Can’t believe it right? Well, here is what the deal is. The locals usually use the couch surf and few have extra for you to spend your time in the region.
Southeast Asia is all about eating on the street and bargaining hard while shopping in the beautiful colorful streets. Street food in the region is as good as any fine dining plus you save a lot of money.
When booking for any tour in the region make sure you find yourself people and form a group to get great discounts and save up for later. Drinking is expensive in the region so make sure you limit your drinks per day so you did not spend a lot on partying with booze.
