Indonesia is a very cheap place to travel, which is just one of many reasons that makes it so much fun! Your personal spending on the trip will include your food, drinks, shopping, entertainment and any activities outside of those included your FNEZ adventure.
For the entirety of our 20 Day Indonesia Trip -- "Experience It All", we would recommend a budget of $800 - $1400. Any travel budget will fluctuate between personalities, so ask yourself: "What type of traveler are you?"
The Hippie: Brings about $700-$900 for the 20 days. Eats local food, bargains well at the market, finds good prices on drinks and picks, and chooses their optional activities wisely! Often likely to continue traveling after their FNEZ trip is complete.
The Backpacker: $900-$1200 spending money. A bit more frivolous, but is aware of their budget. Takes in most activities they are interested in, without going too extravagant. Likes to party, but always looking for a good deal.
The Rock Star: $1200 - $1600: Not too worried about their budget, they'll do almost everything, including lavish amounts of shopping and partying often. There won't be too much holding them back from activities, as this is their trip and don't want to let anything pass them by.
