Traveling around MY is fine as it's cheap. But what about going to US or UK or Japan and other countries. Those are expensive.

So, are you willing to spend 10k (for you and your partner) to go traveling? Because that 10k is for airplane ticket, hotel lodging, traveling fees, tickets and food only. That means 10k just gone like that.

For some people it is worth it but for some you get nothing (tangible) in the end.

Discuss....

I splurge that much occasionally in Asean country depend on the purpose of my trips. Especially the places that I think I would be there only once in my lifetime. I never regret when I saw my banking account after went back for trips. Its really enjoy and rejuvenate trips. I'm addict to that lifestyle tongue.gif

Well, for Average M'sian not easy but for those really above average, esp those earning 5 figure/mth , RM10K, will be peanut to them...Only 1 mth out of 1 yr salary mah....why not...

If I earn so much, I might be spending the same as those above avg ppl liao....just like putraskyline, sharkteef (Permabanned liao), travelers, & more haha

Other asean countries are relatively cheap compared to developed countries like US, UK, Japan and even Australia. Places like Las Vegas or Japan or Europe is a must go for people who like traveling.

Personally, I do not like going to backward places like China or India. The people there are really crazy. Con here, con there and so dirty.

Anyway...10k is considered quite low for 2 people if you are going to traveling in Europe. No way it's enough.

Let's say it take you like 6-12 months to save up 10k then go travel, all gone.

10K is enuf just for 1 pax go Japan...

If a person don't see the value in travelling, no matter how much, also they say it's not worth...maybe jus a few photo for remembrance.

But if one is travel maniac like some of us here, ...the value can't be measured in RM & sen, (altho we will need them to go travel, the experiences, the humbling moments when one is struck by the immense beauty of some places and the strong human spirit of the people of the land we are visiting.

travel according to your wallet thickness... the thicker the wallet (with cash of course) the more they will spend.. the farther they will go.. if i have the money i will go seeing those iceberg and what not.. some people dont appreciate this traveling thing.. they prefer spend less.. cuti-cuti malaysia and spend more on things they can see.. house or car or something..

TS should re -word the question to

If you have the money, would you spend RM10k on a trip?

Several years ago, our family of 5 used up Rm35k for 3 wks in NZ..it's was really good, worth every sen of it...went river fishing, glacier walking, stay in log cabin & also a horse ranch etc .

Am planning a Norway tour ---to walk the glacier and do the fjords ...a 1 wk trip staying in tents, and basic forest cabins costs RM7k without food, air tkt and connection to/from the incoming city in Norway. Can't help it that some cities are expensive due to high cost of living.

norway happens to the among the highest cost of living city! tongue.gif

anyway for me, willing to spend 10K, but would preferably explore all places in the country with the minimest cost and longest time.. no hotel, no exquisite dining, no beer, no luxury in short..

Look at some of the tour packages, eg Hokkaido 7 days, The Silk Road 12 days, 10 days Egypt, 11 days NZ, all are around 5k. So, each couple could very well be >10k..

10k for travelling? Yes, I would, but may be once every 5 years or so, a treat to my parents. Other time just go budget independent tour..

So far, has only brought (belanja) my parents to Tasmania, 8 days, SGD 7k...

Think each one has their own priority & budget, the important thing is, one must feel its worth it.
