The minimum budget for tourists who are “stuck” without money or who do not have free funds was presented on his blog in Yandex.Zen by a Russian “winterer” stuck in Cambodia. According to him, in these realities – not too chic, but still quite comfortable you can exist on a “minimum budget” of $150 per month. Of which, according to the blogger, $ 80 goes to housing and another $ 70 to food. And given that Cambodia is one of the poorest countries in the world, the announced amount is the minimum necessary for a Russian to live abroad.
At the same time, the blogger called his lifestyle a “rogue rogue” – and then painted in detail how he survives on some big money or, in his words, “what this style implies and how much it costs”
“My hotel – a hostel – is very good. Air-conditioned rooms with 3 bunk beds. Such a luxury military barracks. In fact, it is convenient: the mattresses are excellent, the linen is normal, the toilets, which is very important, are constantly cleaned and there are a lot of them. On the roof of the hotel there is a swimming pool, a bar and a restaurant. On the ground floor there is a cafe and a working area,” the blogger said. According to him, this pleasure costs $7 per day. At the same time, living conditions in the hostel do not bother him, “on the contrary, it’s fun,” he notes.
“In the matter of saving on food, I am not satisfied with myself yet. Even though I lived for so many years in Southeast Asia, now I can hardly force myself to eat Cambodian food,” he says. At the same time, “native European” is much more expensive. “Breakfast on the roof of the hotel costs 2.5 – 3.5 dollars. For lunch, a sandwich for a dollar with meat and greens, or a pancake with sprouted soy, minced meat and small shrimp. It is sold with a bag of greens added to it, so you can even call it healthy food. Costs only 75 cents. Dinner, to be honest, after a hot day does not pull at all, so usually some things from the supermarket are used: muffins, cookies and the like. On average, $1.5 a day,” the blogger said.
“With food and a hotel, it's $13 a day, or about $400 a month. This, of course, we do not consider weekend fun, which goes far beyond any savings, but here I am not ready to turn on the power saving mode yet, ”he summed up.
