Day 8: Budget Summary – Going Home: Enroute to Jakarta!
End to end, our 8 days vacation cost about 600 USD/person. I managed to cut cost here and there, and at the end of the day – this is already about 200 USD/person lower than our original budget. I know actually it is POSSIBLE to push it even lower – but we don’t want to sacrifice comfort too much nor sacrificing to see the blue sky! (it is cheaper to go in low season; we intentionally went on high season to get catch the best weather).
Airfare Jakarta – Bangkok: 90 USD/per person two way (AirAsia – including tax)
Airfare Bangkok – Krabi: 80 USD/per person two way (AirAsia – including tax)

Note: If you want budget travel but still with comfort - I really recommend the hotels I picked above. Really value for money – especially for *young couple*. But actually there are still a lot of backpackers hostel (join rooms with other people) if you want.
In summary, for us it was an excellent holiday! Relatively value for money. If you think the pictures were good – honestly the experience was far more better than what it looks like :D
