What are your recommendations in SEA for a asocial online Math student to live cheaply and not feel guilty for being a permanent tourist? I'm taking my first trip to non-Turk Asia next week (Da Nang for a month) and I'd like to stay in SEA until next year. I don't care about anything social (friends or cooming) or alcohol/drug prices, just want cheap food and accomodations. Also, I don't care about beaches either, other than seafood.
I know this sounds like a sad trip but I honestly love just trying to fit in as a local. I guess I'm an adventurous autist.
