How much money does one need for a three month vacation?
Okay, so here's the thing:
Hopefully (God, Buddha, Mohammed willing), I will go to the Philippines next summer to visit/meet my Grandmother (mom's mom). This will be my first international trip EVER and only the fifth time being on a plane (the only other trip I've ever had was to Hawaii... and I did some inter-island flying)
I dunno if you know, but most Filipinos (at least the ones I know) generally vacation there for at least a month. I want to spend the whole summer there, which I think is rainy season for them, but it's really the only time I can go.
But since I've never really been anywhere... I don't know how much to save. I'm really only thinking spending money because:
A) i've asked my mother for a plane ticket for my 21st birthday
B) I've got a lot of relatives/friends to stay with. Hopefully I won't have to stay in too many hotels.
Also, any Filipinos know any cool, non typical tourist places to go? I'm for sure going to Boracay... they say you HAVE to go to that beach.... and then I don't know where else.
Also any general traveling tips would be great!
