I guess I try to save up as much as possible beforehand and make sure that I can pay whatever extra I spend within 2-3 months. Yes I've spent way more than 10k before...

If you plan properly you can obviously save cost but I'm not the type to plan every single detail up front but that's a bit heavier on the wallet obviously. I didn't expect for example to be charged 12 euros for wifi access at my hotel this past weekend, a little bit more planning would've saved me that money but I just go with the flow...

flight tickets to south america cost a bomb. MAS after discount is around rm15k return trip to costa rica....its because you need to transit twice i think...my friend 1st fly to amsterdam then north america then argentina...it takes near to 24 hour too..

It's a long flight but RM15k is way too much. Go to kayak.com and check the prices there, you can get there for half the price.

And also NYC - wonder what the hype is all about. A friend once told me it's more or less very 'KL-ish'.

Wakaka some people get NYC, a few don't. I lived there for more than a decade and I love NYC so I don't mind spending 5k or more every year going back to enjoy the city. PM me if you decide to go and want some tips biggrin.gif

I've spent more than 7 weeks in France this year but I still haven't truly immersed myself in the culture or even had much chance to travel the country. Will probably take advantage of AAX cheap tickets to do it again in the future.

In the mean time, NZ is coming in 2011 on AAX! Fortunately not 10k since flight tickets are cheap!

I am not willing to spend that much that's why I do backpacking with budget hotel.

On the other side, the most (air ticket only and not from my own wallet) to US with Cathay business class almost RM20K each person. This shall be my highest ever in a life time because I just couldn't freaking willing to do that insane spending. ** Is a company ** Not countable?

It's all relative now isn't it? If you make 5-6 figures a month then 10k is insignificant. Problem is when you make lots of money will you have the time to spend on yourself? I have investment banker/private equity friends who make millions but don't have time to spend the money.

Anyway my current US trip is already costing close to 6k... ouch.

Would you spend RM10k to travel locally? 3 nights for me and the family at Club Med is already almost 10k.
