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

No matter how I spent, all my previous trips never exceed RM2k/pax all-in inc of air fare, acc, food, transports & souvenirs..haha..

I'm gonna do the same in my nxt 7D5N Tokyo trip. Right now, I already spent RM900/pax on air fare & prebooked hotel. So budgetting only RM1K/pax on transports, food & souvenirs..haha.. Yeah I think I can achieve it

RM2800/pax to Seoul more than enough for 6 days provided you prebooked your accomodations haha.. FYI, I only spent less than RM800 for my 6D4N there. Incheon airport on the 2st floor having a superb resting nest..damn comfy & wth big Samsung LCD...Anyway, the airport so quiet after 9:30pm..All duty free shops closed at 9:30pm haha.. I'm not sure whether they will shut off the lighthing after midnite or not biggrin.gif ..I hv bd experience stranded wth all lights off at Gimpo airport..walking in the dark looking for taxi to Seoul.. sad.gif ..That time no direct train to Seoul and the airport train till Gimpo airport only and their subway ended at 11:30pm & so do their domestic airport..damn blush.gif sad.gif

I think you are the champion is budget travels lor.

No matter what, I still end up with medium range hotels/b&b if i can find. But currently been sourcing rooms/apartments/flats from www.airbnb.com which saves me a whole lot - being some accommodations are actually very centrally located, hence myself saving on train tickets to go from places to places.

I'm only planning to bring 1mil won to Seoul for my 6 day trip in March. I wonder how can I get it to reduce........ afraid not enough money for food later. ;P The last night in Seoul, will be spent at the airport because my flight is at 8.30am the next day (AAX). Too lazy to rush from city to airport at the earliest hour! I think must wake up at 4.30am to mandi, get ready, breakfast and then 5.30am need to be at train station and it takes about 40 mins from city to airport... what a rush! Hopefully the transit hotel in Incheon airport got room, if not.... just hang out at airport. LOL! If i can tahan 19hrs in Doha Airport, I can certain tahan 7 hours in Incheon airport.

For long-haul sales keep an eye on those Middle-eastern carriers -- Emirates, Qatar, Etihad, Gulf Air. They have periodic sales, all the way to South America, esp. Emirates. Late last year, Qatar did a campaign - got KUL-DOH-OSL for just RM1.2k, all-in, full service some more. Early this year Emirates did global sale, so got another ticket KL - St Petersburg, for RM2.4k, traveling in April, on A380. We are doing Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania too.

Btw if you are a history buff, do Andalucia while in Spain -- Granada, Cordoba, Sevilla are awesome. A side trip to Gibraltar is cool. smile.gif

YEs I used lotsa public transport for sure.. Best way to save & also mingle wth the locals.. However on places having poor public trp like Indonesia, I normally rent a car & drive or rent a car + driver. Yeah it cost more esp rent a car wth driver.

Travel on budget is not hard. just abit of planning & research. On how much you willing to spend really depending on how much is your airfare & prebooked hotel

Most of the time I just bought these two. And normally go on budget promo fare.. 'So for eg..If you can get cheap fare to Tokyo let say ~RM500/pax return, Hotel triple sharing at RM400/pax for 5 nites. Your actual total cost only RM900 no matter how you want to spend.

Therafter when you're there how much you want to spend also depending on you. Tranport probably ~RM300/wk, food ~ RM80/day (600yen/meal) & souvenirs/entrance ~ RM200.. no matter how I calculate, I think RM900/pax/wk is more than enough even to Tokyo haha. Thus Why need to spend RM10K when you can get similar Holiday for <RM2K/pax even to Tokyo haha
