    I have a question aswell. I recently did the European magic tour, most of my money evaporated at an alarming rate when we partied at night. I don’t drink beer so I had to go for the more expensive option of ciders and spirits. Please tell me it’s cheaper to drink cocktails and such in Asia than it is in
    Europe. Or il be looking at saving another 3000$ (new Zealand) to get through the tour. As a student… That sucks!

    That’s awesome! I wasn’t to sure about being there by myself so I haven’t booked any post tour stuff yet!

    Yeh I was unsure but the days I do before & after the tour will be more shopping & indulging in massages! :) I’m 22.. How old are you!

  • 4 May 2011 Racheee said

    Racheee

    Very true!!!! shopping would be fantastic, how did you book your post tour accom? As my contiki agent said they can only book one day pre and post! And is it at the same hotel in phuket or a different one?
    I’m 20 :)

    shopping will be amazing! yeh i decided against staying at the contiki lodge (i found cheaper and nicer accomodation) and im staying two tonights at a backpackers near the hotel so ill just walkup there on the 24th and meet everyone there :) the last two nights after the tour ive gone all out and im staying at a 5 star spa resort ;) why not you only live once!

    Racheee

    Oh that’s amazing!!! And sounds so good! I think I’ll decide closer to December or something! I was thinking of having a few days in Singapore by myself as I heard shopping there is just as good!!!

  • 4 May 2011 tigerlily_ said

    tigerlily_

    yeh true you’ve still got 8 months till the trip to decide anyway :) singapore would be sweet as.. ahh so many choices!

  • 4 May 2011 Racheee said

    Racheee

    There are so many choices!!! Well I’ll chat to you some other time? Or I’ll see you December :)

    Oh and have you booked flights by any chance? I booked my and the cost me a fortunate :( but will be worth it though!

  • 4 May 2011 tigerlily_ said
