depend on how you arrange your accommodation, your activities and your foods.

1. air ticket: depend on the price at firefly http://www.fireflyz.com.my
2. Hotel: from U$50 - U$1000 above, see what is your budget.
3. transportation: rent a bike cost around 180 tb, a bike cost around 800 - 2000 tb. depend on what you preferred.
4. food: eat at restaurant, hotel of coz is much more expensive than hawker stall.

for my trip, total i spent..
RM 1,100 - air tickets (for 2)
RM 2,000 for hotel (RM 500 x 4 nights)
RM 2,450 (U$ 700 x 3.5) for exchange to thai baht (spent on foods, drinks, massage, activities, shopping etc)
RM 1,500 for SPA, foods and shopping paid by credit card
RM 7,050 +/-

i read from other forum, some ppl can spend less than RM3,000 including air tickets and hotel.

hope this help. :mrgreen:

Hi, Silverstan

Thanks for sharing the pictures and info. I am planning to go there during CNY 2010 for a week. YAHOOOOOOOO!!!!! :D So, your info gave me a lot of ideas. Thanks again. :wink:

May i know the following:
- which website or forum did you go to to do research?
- why didn't you go for local tours? Or it is better to tour the island ourselves?
- anything i need to be aware of when i am there?
- why did you choose Chaweng instead of other beaches?
- is your snorkeling trip a tour package?

I hope you can help me out here because i am stuck at looking for a good hotel and which part of the island i should go to. :?

Many thanks in advance.
