Is SE Asia overrated as a cheap destination?

Jump to last reply

First, you have to get vaccinations. That's $200-$400 on average.
Second, the airfare to Asia is expensive.
Third, there are no budget airlines between Asian cities. Siem Reap to Bangkok, for instance, costs $300.

So yeah maybe food and accommodation are cheap, but this is not a place where you skimp on lodging or stick to street food, considering the low hygiene standards and dirty hostels.

Why do people say Asia is cheap, when you can find a ticket to Europe for only $500.
