>>1044696 For the full trip? Unless you want to go full hobo mode, no.
Airfare will be in the 3-4k region at least even if you get all flights as super saver specials. SEA about $25 per day (2250), Australia $50 per day (1500), South America $35 per day (2100) is what you need for hostel, mostly cook your own meals, no/tiny amounts of alcohol, non smoker, minimal public transport/taxi use and maybe going out every other week once.
so 3000 +2250 +1500 +2100 = 8850 add some other stuff you will need like: a taxi, long train rides, travel insurance, visa fees, doing some crazy stuff, entrance fees, replacement of lost damaged gear/cloths you want about$100 per week.
A healthy reserve of at least $1500 cash for emergencies (just to get home if needed, get a passport replaced, if you get robbed not be fully fucked till your insurance sends some money, and banks can shut down in SEA and South America without notice, so you want cash)
>>1044903 I spent $4,000 for 3 months in Peru & went out quite a bit including plane trips to Cuzco & the Amazon. My friends didn't go out & had family there & they spent less than $2,000 (including flights)
>>1044903 I spent ~$10K for 6 months in the Philippines. This included: -2 week trip to Japan -scuba diving certification in Coron and another diving trip in Batangas -surfing trips -hiking trips to Sagada & Mt Pulag -wakeboard park fees -eating out at least once/day -2 hospital stays (food poisoning) -taxi fares -bus fares to various places -fees for visa extension & lost passport
I traveled w/ a friend who was well connected so, saved some money by staying w/ family & friends.
Would strongly suggest that you have a trustworthy connection in each locale and travel w/ a male friend.
Have not met a single woman that hadn't been robbed in Peru--taxi drivers were some of the culprits. Everyone in my family was robbed except me, but I have a pretty muscular build.
Similar question. I plan on going to Japan for 3 months, then SEA, then Italy. All my flights (save for from SEA to Italy) are going to be essentially free because of the miles I racked up on my credit card. I was planning on doing something like workaway or wwoofing to take care of accommodation and maybe even some meals in Japan and Italy, but just doing stuff like hostels in SEA. I hope to spend $4000 but have more saved if really necessary. Does this sound reasonable? Should I plan to do workaway stuff in SEA as well?
I travelled Vietnam Laos Cambodia Thailand Malaysia Singapore Philippines all in that order and just day to day travel was about $3000 to $3500 and then I had to pay for flights on top. I hear Australia is expensive as fuck so if you want to extend your time as much as possible I'd spend as little time as possible is Aussie land.
>>1045188 Okay, to be fair, it is difficult as hell. Weird thing as well, cheap flights from NZ have an intermediate stop in AUS, cheap flights from AUS have intermediate stop in NZ. Try matrix.itasoftware.com and be flexible (in time but also airports. Maybe flying from Christchurch (via AUS) is cheaper than from Auckland.).
There are cheap low cost airlines that fly from Malaysia or Singapore to Australia. Malindo and AirAsia and Jetstar I think. You can land in Vietnam and travel by rail to Bangkok, down through Malaysia and into Singapore. You can then take cheap flights from Singapore to Australia. Rail is fucking cheap and there are sleeper cabins. The scenery is nice too.
Australian here—if I was you, with your budget, I'd skip our great country. You can easy do 6 months in SEA inc. partying every other night. Your only quality of life improvement in Australia with your budget would be clean drinking water. If you're going to be eating rice and pre-drinking goon in hostels you may as well make it 3 months in SEA v 1 month in Aus or NZ.
Fly back home and save for a couple of months and then do South America.
