Travelers will find that the daily travel budget for Indonesia can range from relatively cheap to expensive depending how you plan out. But if you stick to budget options for accommodation and food, generally it is very affordable to travel in Indonesia. You may even plan out to travel in Indonesia under 20 USD / day budget!
Here are some of the breakdowns of the daily travel budget:
Food and Drinks
Warung / roadside = 0.50-2 USD
Cheaper Restaurant = 2-4 USD
Higher end restaurant = 5-11 USD
Bottle of water = 0.50-1 USD
Local beer at convenience store = 1-2 USD
Beer at bars or clubs = 2.50-5 USD
Guesthouse / hostel = 5-8 USD
Taxi / motorbike = 0.50-1.50 USD
Rent a motorbike for a day = 7 USD
Rent a car or SUV for a day = 22 USD
Train = 7 -12 USD
Bus (long distance of 12 hours) = 18 USD
Museums or Temples or Mountains = 0.50 – 3 USD
Airport Departure Tax
Daily travel budget average range = 18 – 22 USD / day
Although budget in Indonesia can be averaged out to such for a day, but since it is such a large country, it may vary from places to places especially in remote areas vs city or tourist popular places, like the daily budget in Bali and Lombok should be higher.
