Cheap monthly accomodations in Asia

Airbnbs are getting expensive even in poor countries so what's the alternative if I want to stay somewhere for around a month and then move on? Should I avoid serviced apartments that require a deposit as well have basically 0 recourse if they don't return it?

Specifically, my budget is $650/mo and cities I plan on staying in are Delhi (or surrounding area), Hanoi, and Bangkok. Is it just the sad reality of these cities that a $650 budget is gone?

    I hope 650 isn't your total budget. Assuming you mean your accomodations budget, just stay in hotels. You can find cheap hotels for a month for half that amount in all those cities. If you don't want to stay in hotels, look in FB groups for people who want tenants/roommates, but good luck finding a place that will rent to a budget tourist/drifter for just one month.

      Do I need to have like an established social media presence? I don't do normies stuff if that's what you're asking. So there's no option for me? It's hotels or just stay home?

      You should at least have a profile. Yes look for expat groups on FB in your target country if you plan to stay long term. Also ask around in the country when you get there. If you like a place you stayed just ask the owner what they would do for a monthly rate. In 3rd world countries things happen face-to-face and involve negotiation. You can't expect to do everything 100% online.

        ok. regarding Vietnam and Thailand are there english speaking agents who will help me for a small cut? I guess I could extend to 3mo. I'm worried that the AirBNB folks still won't be that cheap even if I extended without going through Airbnb

      I think 650 is reasonable if he gets an apartment instead of a hotel. an apartment with reasonable quality shouldn't need to be much more than 250 a month

      airbnb are price gougers. they're going to be charging you at least 5x what the actual going rate is

    Fahrenheit is so much better for talking about the weather than Celsius. I have no problem using kilometers and liters and pretty much any other metric unit. But Celsius is just moronic.

    Take a look at the color key on OP's map. Now imagine that instead of a scale ranging from -30 to +35 to cover the common range of human weather experience, the scale went from 0 to 100. Sensible right? That would align almost exactly with the real Fahrenheit scale. In fact, using Fahrenheit, the zero would start near the -17 C, and the 100 F would be slightly beyond the 35 C.

    New Delhi, India - summer temps commonly ~100 F.
    Place, Japan - spring and fall temps commonly 50~60 F
    Whitehorse, Yukon - winter temps commonly ~0 F.

    It just fits almost perfectly. It just makes sense. But nobody will use it out of stubbornness and pure prejudice. Something something science-- nevermind that nobody asking what the weather is like in Beijing cares about the boiling point of water (or the freezing point, for that matter). You can tell water is boiling when it bubbles and you can tell it's below freezing when frost appears on the ground. Or that scientists use kelvins anyway when measuring the most interesting stuff.

      moron, the temperature in india in summer far exceeds 35C and so does the yukon winter temp. Celsius is not hard to wrap your head around and it makes sense that you center it around the freezing point of water because THE FREEZING POINT AFFECTS WEATHER YOU FRICKING moronic AMERIBRAINED SUBHUMAN! when I wake up in the winter i can see "ah it's below fricking zero I have to scrape fricking ice off my fricking windshield". just because in some places you have arbitrarily chosen the fahrenheit sometimes reaches a neat 0 in winter and 100 in summer somewhere else where there is a completely different climate doesn't make it as good of a system as you thing it does, you dumb moron. in most temperate countries ergo the median in winter the temp is around 0 which is the temp that matters most for most humans. dumbass annoying c**t

        >THE FREEZING POINT AFFECTS WEATHER
        It's trivial to memorize freezing point as 32 degrees. It's far less useful than having an actual (soft) bounded scale.
        >moron, the temperature in india in summer far exceeds 35C
        Yeah, and? They are soft boundaries. You're too stupid to understand that, apparently.
        A temperature of 115 is an 11 out of 10, "unbelievably fricking hot."
        Temperatures below 0F are also extreme cold. If you'd ever lived in a cold place you would know this. Cold, arctic areas are very sparsely populated because it takes so much extra effort to live in those climates. The overwhelming majority of human habitats fall in the 0-100 F range most of the time. Anything higher or lower is noted for their extreme temperatures.
        > in most temperate countries ergo the median in winter the temp is around 0
        So? What other rating scale do you pin zero around the median?
        >This beer is great: 3.3!
        >This beer is decent, acceptable: 2.1
        >This beer is not that great: 0.0
        >This beer sucks: -1.5
        >literal pisswater: -3.0
        Nobody talks like this.

          Yeah but for me 30 degrees celcius could be more like 6-7/10 not close to 9/10. Your scale is entirely subjective. Dumb yankee.

      Not for the entire rest of the world.
      And really the only reason you think otherwise is because you've been groomed into accepting Fahrenheit when it's literally based on nothing concrete.

        Wrong.
        I made arguments, you failed to address them.
        And your specific, lazy assertion is already refuted by the fact that I'm conditioned to prefer feet, miles, and gallons yet make no arguments about their objective superiority in a given domain.

    In Bangkok it's extremely easy, lot of serviced apartments offering 1 month rents, many of them have websites/line, for $400 you can get decent location and a pool
    Vietnam has extremely constrained supply of such apartments, so price you pay won't be much cheaper than the hotel
    don't know about India
