Hi, we just got back from a 1 week holiday, just worked it out and we spent £450. Not bad going, we were looking at about £50 per day for food and drinks, and the rest of trips out ect. We're not big drinkers, 1 or 2 with each meal. But beer is cheap!

On average i spend about £200 for 2 weeks but it really does depend on where you eat, go out durning the day and so on. On my holiday i mainly on the beach, travel to family and eatting out every night, but i do it all african style..... bush taxis, local food, sometimes i go to senegambia for drinks. If i wanted too i could easy spend £700!

Hi all I`m new to the Gambia forum, been going to Sharm the last few years lol.

My question is money related, hence why I didnt start a new thread.

I`m looking at booking for Jan 2011 and I like to do my homework lol

Are there any cash machines in the area or am I looking to take cash with me.

Sorry for hijacking someones thread :)

Hi David

It can cost as much or as little as you want.Having been e few times we know where to eat and drink but if you drink and eat on the strip it can be expensive for 2 weeks.

Have a trawl through the posts here to give you an idea.

We spent £500 odd last year on food and drink taxis etc no trips for 2 weeks.

If you mean around the tourist area Yes there are ATMs all seem to work only on the VISA system The is a limit on each transaction and you may require several trips to get a large daily amount rgds

working on the theory that it is easier to put money back in the bank in UK than it is to draw money out in Gambia I always take £1000 pounds to cover 14 days, so any extra expenses occur i have the funds ready.
