Cambodia Budget

cambodia budgetTraveling to Cambodia was on of the easies to plan and come up with a Cambodia budget for. I think part of it had to do with the fact that this was our fourth country we had visited in SE Asia. While not identical, prices are fairly similar in this area and you can use budgets from other countries to get a rough idea on how much to budget for. While in Cambodia, our main form of entertainment and activities were the temples of Angkor Wat, walking around the Old Town area at night and lounging by the pool in the heat of the day when is was simply too hot to do much else. While there is much to see an do in Cambodia, it wasn’t nearly as touristy as Thailand and therefore part of the reason why there was not much more on our bucket list than the Angkor Wat temples. Even though I have heard of amazing day trips to be taken but we simply didn’t have any full days to spare. This was great for the budget and also one of our first vacations where we spent more time relaxing and going for leisurely strolls than rushing to be able to see and do everything that we want to. Many times on vacation the main focus is not on relaxing; we can do that any Saturday at home. Instead it’s about taking advantage of every opportunity we can during our short time in a county. With that being said, this break from the norm wasn’t all that bad and we enjoyed being able to see everything we wanted to and be able to spend a lot of time relaxing.

The budget below reflects the prices for six nights and seven days for both my husband and I.

    I really love it when you do these! I’ll be using them to get a baseline for when we travel through SE Asia again. This is all in a dream world, of course. No plans in place yet! :o)

    Holy cow, what a deal!!! I love how you focus on how affordable travel can be :) if only everyone realized this!

    • Chelsea @ Lost in Travels

      i hope that they do! airline tickets are the most expensive part! other than that, traveling around asia can be extremely affordable!

  • Stacey Greene

    Can’t wait to go now! :] What airline did you use??

    • Chelsea @ Lost in Travels

      i believe (i would have to go back and double check) that we used china eastern airline and korean air. we had a long stop over in shanghai on the way so we used two different airlines for the two flights.

    • Chelsea @ Lost in Travels

      i like to believe that the world is available to all if you just plan and budget accordingly. plane tickets can be expensive but the country in and of itself is so affordable

    There is a girl who I follow on youtube. She went to Cambodia solo. She vlogs while there. Seems like a nice place to visit.

    • Chelsea @ Lost in Travels

      i love people who document more of the country through video. something we need to do more of. you can get a better sense of the country through video versus photos sometimes
