Backpacking in Southeast Asia for 5.5 months! How much money do I need?

Jump to last reply

I'm planning my first backpacking trip for 5.5 months with one other person starting February 2013. We just figured out our route and are trying to calculate expenses.

Route:
Philippines - 2 weeks
Japan - 2 weeks
China - 1 month
Thailand - 1 month
Laos - 2 weeks
Cambodia - 2 weeks
Malaysia - 1.5 weeks
Singapore - 2 weeks
Indonesia - 3 weeks

We plan to end in Australia and live/work there for the rest of the year. All flights have been calculated and came to a total of around $6,500 CDN.

How much more money will we be needing for this trip for daily expenses, nightly accommodations, etc? Will $12,000 CDN be enough?

Any additional information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
