My last month in SEA and, once again, a ton of moving around.

This summary covers travel related expenses for 1-31 March 2016.

Location(s) Visited This Month

  • Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
  • Da Nang, Vietnam
  • Hoi An, Vietnam
  • Hue, Vietnam
  • Hanoi, Vietnam
  • Bangkok, Thailand
  • Beijing, China
  • London, UK

Transportation – $365.30

  • This included multiple flights, including my trip from Bangkok to Beijing and then Beijing to London

Lodging – $427.55

  • I stayed more in hotels this month and was able to book them online so this is a more accurate representation of lodging than the last couple months have been.

Food & Entertainment – $240.90

  • My food is relatively low because most of the places I ate required cash payment so much of my food cost is reflected in Miscellaneous.  This includes a day trip to the Great Wall of China.

Miscellaneous – $302.87

  • Much of this is for food costs as I paid cash for a lot of the places I ate.

Monthly Total:  $1336.62

Average monthly spend: $1258.32 ($258.32)*

This was my most expensive month for a while which isn’t surprising given how much moving I was doing, my Asia to Europe flight, and how expensive Beijing is compared to SEA.

At reader request, I am including a link to a monthly breakdown chart so you can see month-by-month spending in one spot.  Monthly Spending

* My average monthly spending target is $1k/mo. This number is the average for the months I’ve been working remotely so far.  The amount in parentheses is the amount I’m over or under my goal.
