Budget influencing Thailand, vs, Burma, vs Vietnam

Jump to last reply

My friend and I have just started planning a trip to SEA in Dec/Jan. We will pick 2 countries and spend about 12 days in each country. We are looking at Thailand, Burma or Vietnam but open to other suggestions. Interested in culture, architecture and food. I see posters encouraging Burma.
Are there significant cost differences to consider? We would most likely stay at 3 star hotels with breakfast and eat in good but reasonable places in the evenings. We would like to hire a guide and/or driver from time to time. What are some ballpark cost estimates for 12 days in either of the above countries? Some posters quote hotel and dining costs but what about the in-country flights for instance in Burma and Thailand?
I know there is a lot of variablity in the request but I would love a few imperfect budget ideas. Our jumping off point would be Bangkok.
