When I was there about 7 years ago, that would have been enough to live off descently. Dunno about inflation or exchange rates now though

I assume you're talking USD. That's $25/day. That will get you by in Kuta and budget places on most places. However, any travel expenses can eat in quickly.

you can even cope with less pretty easily - if you just want to..
$15 a day is my budget for the coming few months

True, It could be done on $15/day. But that's going to be VERY Spartan. Food, lodging and minimal transport will eat $15 pretty quickly. It's not going to leave much cushion.

In Indonesia, it's enough money...if the $700=Rp.6,300,000, it's like manager salary in Indonesia. for live a month in Jakarta you can rent the nice room for a month Rp.2,000,000 for food you can spent Rp.100,000/day, and you can spent the rest of money for other thing or you can saving that money, cheers!

You can live really well for very little in Indo if you need. When I was there in Jan/Feb I stayed in a place that cost 2.50 U.S a night, this also included breakfast. You just have to look around for cheap deals. Also if you plan on saying in one place, most places will give you a good deal if you plan to be there for a longer stay.
