    Hey guys,

    I want to say "I plan to visit 3 places, but at the moment I'm not sure how long to stay at each place".
    So, how do you say in Japanese the phrase "how long for each place" as in the above sentence? And similarly, "(I'm not sure) how much (to spend) for each item", etc.

    Thank you.

    This is a good question that underscores the differences between the Japanese and English Wh-expressions.

    how long for each place
    どこにどれだけ(滞在するかわからない)
    at-where how long
    An indicative sentence suitable for the reply is:
    京都に3日、神戸に2日滞在します。

    how much for each item
    何にどれだけ(払うか/お金を使うかわからない)
    for-what how much
    An indicative sentence suitable for the reply is:
    航空券に8万円、宿泊費に20万円かけます。

    Tks Flaminius.

    Just one small question, is it OK to use どれくらい/どのくらい instead of どれだけ here?

    Yes, it is.
