Thailand or Bali are probably going to be the cheapest places

Yer you could get away with a 10 day Bali holiday for 1,500 ish for 10 nights. You've way over budgeted for either Thailand or Bali.

 

Go Thailand and both you and the missus could have a pretty lavish holiday for 2 weeks on 5k between ya's.

Thailand is cheap as shit if your smart with your money. Most nights I ate street food and beers

Philippines for sure. international tourism isnt that big so they're not reliant on that. prices stay cheap because they're not going to rip off they're own people and most of the tourists that are there are actually other filos who live overseas or live in other parts of philippines. when i went with my mate we were paying $25 a night each in super peak season for a place right on the beach and i was only spending around $250 a week on food, alcohol and general activities like jetski and scuba. i went out everynight but i did have a 6pack first to save a bit more but even a beer at a bar is only $1-$1.50 but at the corner store they're 50cents

 

almost everyone has very good english as well, its taught from when they're 6 yrs old till end of high school.

if u plan to go the best time is between november and start of april for best weather

Vietnam!!

 

Went last year for about three weeks, spent shit all, food is cheap, booze is cheap, accommodation is super cheap. The people are really nice, the place is not geared towards tourism in comparison to Thailand and the like so you get an awesome cultural experience and there is tonnes to see and do.

 

Considering going back very soon.

You must be wasting money. I spent $2,000 on 3.5 weeks in Vietnam including flights etc.

 

I was partying a lot, got some clothes made, eating out every meal and so on.

Timor Leste (East Timor) an hour from Darwin.

 

The Cocos (Keeling) islands two hours from Perth via Virgin air.

 

I'm seriously looking at these for my next thing. Think Bali before it got f**ked - like 1955

 

The other one is the Island Hopper - from Guam to Hawaii - seriously Google that shit. Flights available to Guam from Cairns.
