travelling expenses - Where's Byrne?

travelling expenses

As I’ve had a few requests on spending I thought I’d tally up and publish costs so far. These figures are what we’ve spent in each country and include everything from accommodation to travel (including flights) to visas.

Dates travelled – July 2011June 2012.

Malaysia – £1,660 3 Weeks
Thailand – £2,385 7 Weeks
Laos – £293 10 Days
Cambodia – £260 5 Days
Vietnam – £752 3 Weeks
The Philippines – £2,626 11 Weeks
Borneo – £674 10 Days

Malaysia – £840 2 Weeks 3 Days

This is what we’ve spent to travel around. Bare in mind this is for two people – if you’re on your own, generally, halve it!

Red is bus, coach or minivan and green is train. For Island destinations, the price includes the cost of the boat. Flights are blue.
