Depends on the place. Like, for example, budget travelling in Taiwan for 5 days (includes ticket + hotel + food + shopping [non-frenzy] + transport), 1000S$ is more than enough, and you can save it in around 2-3 months.

Whoa...

I backpacked in Vietnam and Cambodia for almost two months with twice that amount.

Actually, 700S$ is enough, but, well, the biggest expense is for the foods in cafe (toilet cafe and Hello Kitty cafe) and street foods (well, it's hard for me to resist the temptations around night markets) :lol:

Which is still almost twice what the average person in rural areas of VN live off in a year :P

it helps too if you've set aside some money for travelling and have a location in mind. Keep a look out for travel deals which includes 2-way tix + hotel + breakfast in a centralized/convenient location near where you're thinking of exploring. So for about $2k, you can probably cover 2-3 short trips in Asia, depending on what you do and where you go.
