Apart from SEA countries Where's a place I could live for around $1200 a month for rent, food, bills, transport and a couple of drinks/cinema ticket once or twice a week. I'm a pretty frugal guy and definitely not into partying anymore. I just want the lifestyle of working alone in my apartment then going out exploring/hanging out in coffee shops and meeting people. Some ideas would be great, thanks.
Edit: Thanks a lot for the ideas. Just to make things a bit easier I don't intend to live in shared apartments. I don't know if this will make much difference to the prices and places mentioned here but I wanted to mention it just in case.
