You can find Buddhist Monks in many countries but I think Thailand would do okay. Thailand is very popular with tourists. It is easy to get flights to Thailand. Food and lodging is pretty cheap. Hotels in smaller towns and cities even cheaper than Bangkok. Transportation within Thailand is excellent and low priced compared to the US and Europe.

How much will you need depends on how much you can afford!! With hotels with fan only rooms starting around 400 baht and rooms with air starting around 600 baht in Bangkok you have a lot of options. Of course you can pay a little more and get a little better place to stay. Food is pretty good and cheap too! American/European food available in many places too.

First read up on Thailand and see if it will do for you. Then figure out how much can you aford per night for a hotel after you pay for your plane ticket. Different times of the year will give you different prices for plane tickets. Christmas and New Years will be the highest plane tickets and the highest prices for hotels too. In the summertime from June through to near the end of September plane tickets from the US will be high. This is when the kids get out of school and fly everywhere, the airlines take advantage of this and keep the prices high. In Thailand from around late May to Late September the hotels are at low season pricing. Every now and then you can find a good price for a plane ticket regardless of what season you are flying.

Whe you figure out how much you can afford for hotels then you can get some suggestions where to stay. But, first read up and see if this will do for you.

For local Thai information you can also access this local specific website. Thai Visa Forum - www.thaivisa.com

Specific category: http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/Buddhism-f42.html

Google works for local info on Thai Buddhism:

Good luck.

China is the best place looking for Buddhist monk, you can watch them perform wushu.

Yes, Buddhist monks are very popular specifically in Asia.. But if you really want to visit places which have monks then you can try in Bangkok..

Check the link below.. You can find monks places and reviews.. In the sidebar of the site, you can see Bangkok Tips and where you can stay.

Thailand, China and Bangkok are the most popular destinations for travellers interested in Buddhism and i guess Thailand will be the most suitable...
