Book Your Adventure

South East Asia in general is a very affordable part of the world to travel in. Food, drinks, shopping and activities are often significantly more affordable than at home. That being said, if you are the type that likes to shop till you drop and eat at fancy restaurants you can still manage to rack up quite the bill pretty quickly.

Below we give you a ballpark idea of what kind of budget you’ll need based on your travel and spending habits. For our 20-day itineraries we generally recommend a budget of anywhere from CAD $600-$1200. For our shorter trips we recommend CAD $300-$600.

The Beach Bum

When it comes to food and drink you will be keeping your eyes peeled for deals and happy hours. For the most part you will be eating and drinking at local restaurants and watering holes. Shopping will be minimal, maybe a few tank tops or t-shirts for memories. You’ll choose your optional activities wisely and take advantage of the many free activities.
Budget: $300-400 for 10 day tours/$600-800 for 20 day tours.

The Flash Packer

You are able to spend a little more freely, without getting too crazy. Eating and drinking won’t be a problem, but you will still want to keep your eyes open for the occasional promo or happy hour. You will be able to do most of the optional activities you are interested in, and you can afford to do a little bit of gift and memento shopping.
Budget: $400-500 10 day tours/$800-1000 20 day tours.

The High Roller

Your budget shouldn’t be an issue. You can eat and drink very well during your trip and do plenty of gift shopping. There won’t be many limits on your optional activities either. The world is your oyster!
Budget: $500-600 10 day tours/$1000-1200 20 day tours.
