I will be spending roughly 3.5 months (January to April) in Thailand, Laos and Vietnam. Given the price of food and accommodation in those countries, and transport between countries, how much money should I bring to safely survive for my time there (based on just THOSE 3 factors)? The cheapest means of everything

This is Indonesian's standard, which I think is quite similar to those 3 countries. For (decent) foods and drinks, I would say 5€/day. Beer costs around 1€. Accomodation starts from 5€/day, but for tourists from Europe/America, it is advisable to take a more expensive room which may cost around 10-15€. As to transportation between countries, I cannot tell as it depends from what kind of transportation and what your start and destination points are. You can start making your itineraries and come back with a more detailed question. My advise is to bring your bank card with you. I personally would not bring a lot of cash in my wallet during traveling.
