    • Fiji
    • Central America
    • Cambodia
    • China
    • South Korea
    • India
    • Eastern Europe
    • Portugal
    • Australia
    • Thailand

    Most of us imagine Pacific Island destinations as expensive destinations filled with high priced resorts, food, and services. However, that’s not always the case. Fiji, unlike its expensive island neighbors and sharp marketing by Fiji water, is actually relatively cheap to visit. While there are many $1,000-a-night resorts in the country, you can manage to enjoy pristine beaches, world-class diving, tasty seafood, and friendly locals without having to mortgage your home.Since Fiji is a stopov...

    Want to roam ancient ruins, trek through the jungle, surf, and eat delicious food with few tourists around? Visit the smaller countries in Central America — think El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Guatemala. Here you will find most budget hotels for around $15 per night, meals for $3, most bus journeys for the same price, and beer for less than a dollar.Beliza, Panama, Costa Rica – these are expensive destinations by regional standards. If you visit the central Central American countries,...

    While you could put all of Southeast Asia on the list, Cambodia is one of my favorite countries in the region — it’s affordable, beautiful, and the locals are incredibly hospitable. You can get a private, air-conditioned room for $20 USD, street food for $2, and transportation across the country for $20. If you are spending close to $50 a day, you are living large. It’s way cheaper than all its neighbors, just as beautiful, and filled with some of the nicest people in the world. It’s one of t...

    China has fascinated travelers ever since Marco Polo traversed the Silk Road. While the days of China being a super-cheap destination are long gone, the country remains a budget destination – and one of the cheapest in Asia – but with a caveat. You need to get out of the big cities. Sure, the cities are still a bargain. Hostels cost less than $20 a day, food is $2-5 per meal, and local transportation in cities runs less than a dollar. But, the country becomes even cheaper, when you get off th...

    South Korea is a country not talked about enough. To me, South Korea is one of the greatest “undiscovered” travel destinations in the world — its prices rival that of Southeast Asia, it’s high tech, the food is mind blowing delicious and eclectic, the countryside is jaw-dropping beautiful, and the nightlife is out of this world. It is one of the most underrated travel destinations out there. With the South Korean currency at 1,100 won per $1 USD and most everything costing only a few thousand...

    While always a cheap country, the Indian rupee used to ride high at 39 rupees to the US dollar. Now, you get 73 rupees to the dollar — that’s nearly 50 percent more money to travel with. Unless you book five-star resorts and eat only Western meals, you’ll find it hard to spend $50 a day here. You can get by on closer to $30 by staying in cheap guest houses, taking second-class trains, and avoiding Western food. India a cheap backpacking destination – heck, just a cheap travel destination – wi...

    Far Eastern Europe (Ukraine, Bulgaria, Romania, Moldova) is the cheapest part of the continent. It’s a sin most people don’t visit this region more. I was living like a king for less than $40 per day, paying $8 a night for a room in Ukraine, $1.50 for a liter of beer in Bulgaria, and a few dollars for transportation. Eastern Europe has the charm and beauty of the West without the high prices or hordes of tourists you’ll find in Paris, Prague, or Barcelona. They are not the impoverished ex-Com...

    Not all Euro countries are created equal, and Portugal is one of the bargain countries in the region — and one of my favorites. I fell in love with the country the first time I visited — how could I not, with beautiful beaches, wine country, stunning cliffs, delicious food, jovial locals, and historic cities all at bargain prices. Portugal has become a lot more popular and crowded in recent years. Lisbon has become especially expensive was people move there and drive up prices. It’s a great p...

    While an unlikely candidate to be listed on a “cheap destinations” list because it’s known to be incredibly expensive, Australia can also be incredibly cheap – if you know a few tricks! Thanks to a lot of work exchange opportunities, a well-worn budget backpacker trail, lots of Couchsurfing hosts, and cheap groceries, you can visit Australia on a budget. Additionally, Australia has become cheaper thanks to the 20% drop in the Australian dollar has tempered that price increase and made Austral...

    On every list ever about budget travel, Thailand is where it all began for me so it holds a special place in my heart. It is where I decided to quit my job and travel the world. I lived there. I loved there. Thailand is incredible. With a tourist trail going back decades, Thailand is the heart of backpacking in Southeast Asia, and you can get by on between $25-30 a day thanks to cheap guesthouses, food, local buses, and attractions. If you spend all your time on the islands and in expensive a...

    • Hungary.
    • Nicaragua. Of all the countries in Central America, this one is the most budget-friendly. It's slowly getting more and more popular, and it's easy to see why.
    • Taiwan. What makes Taiwan such a budget-friendly destination is the food. Street food can be found all over cities like Taipei and Tainan — a heaping plate will set you back less than $2.
    • Thailand. The heavenly Thai islands are a popular backpacker destination, but don't miss out on visiting the north of the country.

    • It doesn't get more affordable than camping, and the views from the North Rim of Arizona's Grand Canyon National Park are priceless.
    • A favorite destination for hikers, Glacier National Park borders Canada from the northern edge of Montana. After paying the entrance fee, you can hike, swim and climb to your heart's content.
    • With nearly 1 million acres to explore, Olympic National Park in northwest Washington state offers visitors panoramic views of glacier-capped mountains and temperate rainforests.
    • When travelers think of Florida, their minds often drift to Orlando's theme parks or upscale Miami Beach, but they'd be remiss to overlook the country's oldest city.

    www.roughguides.com/special-features/best-places...
    • The Albanian coast. Looking for Mediterranean sun and sand, but your budget doesn’t quite stretch to Capri or the Côte d’Azur? Simply head further east and you’ll find sun-drenched beaches untouched by modern development.
    • Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina. Though the scars of Sarajevo’s past as a city under siege are still evident – in the remnants of mortar shell explosions, filled with red resin to form “Sarajevo Roses” and in the museums documenting the horrors of Sniper Alley – today’s city buzzes with life.
    • Bansko, Bulgaria. Hitting the slopes without breaking the bank can be a challenge – not least as the main Alpine resorts are located in some of the most expensive countries in Europe.
    • The Czech Republic. Though ever-popular Prague is not quite the dirt-cheap city break destination it once was, you’ll still find the Czech Republic to be a good-value country for independent travel.
  6. 20 Amazingly Cheap Places to Travel in 2020 (Costs + Why!)

    • Georgia
    • Laos
    • Argentina
    • Nepal
    • Romania
    • Mexico
    • Turkey
    • Indonesia
    • Armenia
    • Bolivia

    Why: When I visited Georgia last summer, it was love at first sight. This small country in the Caucasus is one you’ll probably be hearing more about it in the years to come. It’s very welcoming and easy to travel in… and very easy on the wallet, too.It all starts in the eccentric capital of Tbilisi, where crumbling façades of traditional wooden Georgian houses stand next to Soviet-era architecture and daring contemporary designs. It’s a bit of a crazy architectural jumble, yet it has a gentle...

    Why: Wedged between the ever-popular Thailand and Vietnam, the landlocked country of Laos is often wrongly overlooked. It used to be known as a ‘crazy party place for backpackers’, mostly due to the town of Vang Vieng in the early 2010s. But that image is no longer correct. Today, Laos is known mainly as the Southeast Asia destination for adventurers.Laos is sparsely populated, mountainous, and has nearly 70% forest coverage, and this makes it a paradise for outdoor activities like trekking,...

    Why: Argentina is a ridiculously cheap country to travel in 2019. While its seemingly never-ending economic troubles are bad news for Argentinians, it does present an excellent opportunity for visitors (and the country could use your foreign cash). For anyone with hard Western currency, it’s rarely been cheaper to visit Argentina. Back in 2012, a US Dollar would get you about 5 Argentinian pesos. Now it gets you 40.While flights to Argentina will cover quite a distance for many, once you get...

    Why: Oh, Nepal… you had me at “namaste.” The kind-hearted nature of the Nepalese and the wonderful bustle of Kathmandu instantly enchanted me when I visited in 2017. If you’re thinking of a trip to South Asia but don’t want quite the hassle of India, then Nepal is simply the place to go.Nepal also happens to be one of the world’s cheapest places for mountain trekking, whether that’s guided or independent. There are routes throughout the Himalayas that are very well-supported and have many tea...

    Why: Whatever you think Romania is, it probably isn’t. The Transylvania region, in particular, defies expectations — with its cute medieval towns, ancient fortified churches, and spectacular Carpathian mountain range. It’s a beautiful country with great food and friendly people, and one of my favorite destinations in Europe.Let’s be honest here: some folks out there have pretty bad stereotypes about this country. Some think it’s dangerous (lol, no). Others think it’s the land of ‘gypsies’ (no...

    Why: Ahhh, Mexico. It’s often such a misunderstood travel destination, especially among Americans misled by sensationalized news reports. Apart from a few non-touristy regions, it’s a perfectly safe country to visit. It’s great for a cheap beach holiday, but lends itself equally to a culturally-focused trip.The classic travel route runs from the beautiful Mexico City to Oaxaca and Chiapas states, ending on the Yucatan Peninsula. While resort cities like Cancun and Playa Del Carmen can be a li...

    Why: Turkey has suffered economic problems lately, though its weaker currency makes it a cheap place to travel right now. I revisited Turkey last year on a stopover in Istanbul, and was reminded of what a great cultural destination it is. Sat between East and West and once home to the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires, you’ll find Roman ruins, cave cities, buzzing bazaars, and of course plenty of Mediterranean beaches.Backpacker Budget: $30 a dayMid-range Budget: $50 a day

    Why: From white sand beaches to jungles and savannahs, and from blue flame spewing volcanoes to remote rainforests where you can meet orangutans in the wild… Indonesia is a whole world to discover.Bali has long been the tourist hot-spot, but I think it may have gotten too popular for its own good. The beaches are dirty and the cities overcrowded, though the north side of Bali still kept its charms. The best of Indonesia can be found away from Bali: try adjacent islands like Lombok and Java, t...

    Why: Something quite incredible happened in Armenia in 2018: the people peacefully protested its dictator, who eventually issued a polite mea culpa and promptly resigned. There’s now a real sense of positivity in Armenia and among its global diaspora, which makes now an excellent time to visit.Nevertheless, it’s still a very poor country; its landscapes dotted with Soviet-era relics and ladas still drive the streets. It might not yet have the more mainstream appeal of neighbouring Georgia, bu...

    Why: Welcome to South America’s ultimate cheapie destination, where you can get by on just $20 a day. Travelling in Bolivia may at times be slow and uncomfortable, but it also has some of the continents’ most amazing sights, such as the world’s highest lake Titicaca and the jaw-dropping and otherworldly salt flats of Salar de Uyuni.If you’re an adventurous traveller and not so easily fazed by Bolivia’s remoteness then you might just want to book your tickets straight away. Not many airlines f...

    Why: Forget about Narcos; today’s Colombia is a much more positive and welcoming place, as increasing numbers of tourists are now finding out. Exchange rates between the Colombian peso and USD or EUR also remain favourable, making it 30% cheaper to travel there now than when I visited just a few years ago.The country will give a perfect taste of the South American continent, as you have both the Pacific and Atlantic coasts, the Amazon rainforest, and the start of the Andes—all within relative...

    Why: You’ve probably heard of Angkor Wat— a vast temple complex that was once the heart of the ancient Khmer empire. This sprawling site is highly worth a visit, especially if you take the time to go beyond just the central temples.But there’s so much more to Cambodia. Its islands remain pleasantly undeveloped (at least, for now). Quiet Mekong towns like Kratie will give you a true taste of Southeast Asia. While Cambodia is undergoing some devastating deforestation, its jungles in the southwe...

    Why: As any in-the-know travellers will tell you, it’s not actually Thailand that’s the first choice for amazing tropical beaches these days. For this you go to the Philippines. But even though this country has over 7000 islands, it’s not just a beach-focused one-trick-pony. Culturally it’s also a fascinating place, with its mix of Asian and Spanish/US colonial influences, incredible ancient rice terraces in the north, and countless opportunities to experience nature everywhere.When you menti...

    Why: Okay, I wrote in the introduction that I’d been to all of these countries, but the only exception in this list is Ukraine. I haven’t yet been, but rave reviews from my traveler friends compelled me to add it. I think it deserves a spot on this list, as it’s possibly the cheapest country to travel in Europe.Yes, there is still a simmering conflict involving Russian-backed separatists in the easternmost region. But if you avoid this remote area you’ll find that everything in Ukraine is per...

    Why: “See it before it changes,” is the familiar refrain when it comes to Cuba. There is a sense that one day it may be overrun by mass tourism from the US, though following recent US policy reversals that day seems a little more distant again now. Cuba used to known as an expensive place, when it was focused mostly on filling its state-run luxury hotels with high-spending tourists. These days it can be quite a bargain, especially once you get out of central Havana.It’s also perfect for getti...

    Why: Costa Rica may be the mainstream favorite in this region, but it’s also hella expensive. Guatemala is not only a lot cheaper (by at least half as much), but if you ask me, it has a wow-factor that simply no other country in Central America can match.Hidden in its northern jungles are the Mayan temples of Tikal, a stunning sight especially at sunrise. Equally breathtaking is the highland lake of Atitlan in the south, ringed by volcanoes and quaint villages where the pace of life is deligh...

    Why: Popular? Very. But Thailand can still be one of the cheapest countries to travel. The further away you get from the most commercialized beaches, the better it gets. Head all the way to northern Thailand to the Chiang Mai region, and you’ll be in budget travel heaven. Here amid the rice fields, Buddhist temples and hill tribes you can find some of the best-value accommodation anywhere—whether you’re looking for a backpacker dorm bed (from $5) or a comfy hotel with swimming pool (from $30)...

    Why: Morocco is a fantastic budget getaway given that it’s the most stable country in North Africa and just a stone’s throw from Europe. It’s quite cheap, though only if you manage to steer clear of the pushy salesmen trying to sell you overpriced rugs!If you’re a backpacker, you’ll be happy to know Morocco has a small but growing network of backpacker hostels. If you have a bit more budget, consider staying in some of the iconic riads—traditional hotels with garden courtyards offering a plea...

    Why: From the beautiful chaos of Hanoi’s Old Quarter to the serene Hoi An riverfront adorned with colored lanterns, Vietnam is truly a country full of contrasts.Unfortunately, one of the downsides of Vietnam is that it can be highly focused on packaged mass tourism, which can be felt especially strongly when touring Halong Bay or the Mekong Delta — but strike out on your own and you’ll be able to get a true taste of this exciting country. It’s also among the cheapest countries in Asia: eat lo...

  7. Best Places to Visit in Europe when you are on a Budget

    • Krakow, Poland. Krakow is a historic city. It is located in the south of Poland. Approximately 4 hours from Warsaw, and 1 hour from the Slovakian border.
    • Vilnius, Lithuania. The Capital of Lithuania is often overlooked by your average tourist. It is, however, one of the cheapest places to travel – the cost of food, drink, and wine is cheap.
    • Riga, Latvia. Riga sits on a coastal area in Latvia in the Gulf of Riga. In recent years this destination has seen a rise in popularity. Despite this, it remains a superb location for budget travelers and is one of the cheapest and best places to visit in Europe.
    • Warsaw, Poland. Poland really is one of the cheapest countries in Europe – the cost of living here is superb. This is why Warsaw is one of the best places to visit in Europe for a city break.

    1. Laos, $30/day

    Back in my budget backpacking days around Southeast Asia, Laos was one of the two destinations where I was able to keep my budget at $30/day, even though accommodation was slightly more expensive than most places in Southeast Asia at that time. Many of the amazing activities you can do in Laos are cheap. I paid $2.50 to see one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world, $7 for a full day tubing experience along the Vang Vieng river, and $6 for an awesome tiger balm massage. You can also r...

    2. Vietnam, $30/day

    I probably had the healthiest and cheapest street food in Vietnam. Think a soup with rice noodles, cilantro, amazing broth, and a whole shank of pork for $1.50, or a cup of strong, aromatic coffee for $1. As far as transportation goes, if you rent a motorbike, you are all set for the day. However, I understand that not everyone is comfortable riding a motorbike, especially in countries like Vietnam where the road traffic can be overwhelmingly chaotic. The good news is that GrabBike (similar t...

    3. Cambodia, $25/day

    I know for sure that if you choose to rough it, you can easily spend a month in Cambodia with just $1000. Dorms are very basic but can be dirt cheap, the same goes for food and alcohol. I also had my haggling skills to thank as I was almost always able to talk my way out of being charged unfairly by the Tuk Tuk drivers. There are some one-off expenses such as the 3-day pass to Angkor Wat, which is currently set at $62, and diving trips that add up, but there will also be days ofriding bicycle...

    14. Romania, $33/day

    If you are planning a European trip that’s affordable and a little bit off the beaten path, Romania is perfect for you. While the country is known for Dracula, many charming towns and free activities remain unknown to most foreigners. Whether you’re taking a long stroll through the medieval villages, or people watching in one of the beautiful parks, Romania is great for anyone after a European experience on a budget. You can also make use of the free walking tours to check out the numerous hi...

    15. Georgia, $30/day

    Georgia is another underrated European destination that’s absolutely beautiful and affordable. Also, get this: most of you will be able to enter Georgia without a visa, and stay for one year. Say what?! Quality hostels at a reasonable price range, a meal at a local restaurant for as low as $3, and a local minibus ride for less than $1 are just some of the great things Georgia can offer to its visitors. What’s more? Entrance fees to museums and historical sites are mostly less than $2. The loc...

    16. Greece, $40/day

    Timing is crucial if you want to travel in Greece on a budget. While prices of flights, accommodation and tours have been largely cut down since the country’s debt crisis in 2010, summer months still cost more than others. This means avoiding July and August, which are the hottest and busiest months in Greece. Instead, go a few weeks before or after summer, and you will be able to enjoy Greece with smaller crowds and a lower budget. You can also cut down on food costs by buying fresh produce...

    23. Mexico, $40/day

    Mexico is full of endless adventures. This vast country is rich with culture, nature, and some of the best food in the world. Though the country does not have the best reputation as far as safety goes, most violence takes place in certain areas, and Mexico is a big country with plenty of safe places to explore. Now the good news? It’s easy to travel in Mexico on a budget. For less than $20, you will be able to explore at least 5 stunning cenotes, like the one in the picture above; for less th...

    24. Nicaragua, $35/day

    Nicaragua is one of the cheapest Central American destinations to travel in, although it’s not likely to stay that way for much longer. The country is nicknamed as the next Costa Rica, and we all know what that means. For now, the country remains affordable, fun, and interesting so go before the prices go up and before mass tourism hits. For outdoor lovers, Nicaragua is great for surfing, volcano hiking, and diving. For a more relaxing journey, the colonial cities are beautiful to take a stro...

    25. Guatemala, $38/day

    For an amazing Central American adventure on a budget, check out Guatemala. The country is covered in lush jungles, volcanos, and ruins. When you need a break from outdoor sports, its colonial cities will capture your heart with their stunning architecture and cobblestone streets. Local food is delicious and cheap at about $3 for a full meal (except in Antigua, where prices are actually close to US levels). Local transportation can be very cheap but at times confusing and risky. The locals ty...

    29. South Africa, $40/day

    If you are traveling on USD or Euro, the exchange rate alone will do you a big favor. At this time of writing, 1 South African Rand is equal to 7 cents US. Any hostels/guesthouse/tourist accommodation in South Africa is called a “backpackers”, and they are typically in beautiful settings and each has a unique personality, not to mention affordable too. Food is where the big budget eater or saver can be, as it can get expensive in South Africa. To save money, cook your own food. Grocery stores...

    30. Namibia, $42/day

    Namibia is home to some of the world’s most spectacular views including the gorgeous Sossusvlei, the hauntingly beautiful Deadvlei, and the massive Fish River Canyon, just to name a few. At first glance, Namibia may not seem like a budget destination, as most accommodations cater to the luxury category, and transportation availability from one place to another can be limited in such a vast country. However, you just need to do things a little bit differently to save a lot of money. The most i...

    How Low Can You Go?

    The suggested budget above includes basic accommodation, transportation, and 3 meals with a mix of simple breakfasts, hearty lunches, and light dinners, as well as Internet and 1 paid activity for the day. You will need to add on the other costs like shopping, alcohol, little splurges here and there to understand how much exactly is needed. Some may want to dive or ski, which are typically higher cost activities, and some just want to walk around and explore the local neighborhoods. If you ar...

  9. The 18 Best Budget Travel Destinations For 2019

    www.forbes.com/sites/alexandratalty/2018/12/31/...
    • Alexandra Talty
    • San Antonio, Texas, the United States of America. Whether you're craving Tex-Mex or authentic Mexican food, San Antonio has it. Before my family could afford international destinations, we'd road trip from Houston to San Antonio for the weekend.
    • Puebla, Mexico. I spent a month traveling throughout Mexico last January and I found Puebla to be a pleasant surprise. The city is a UNESCO heritage site and it's easy to see why.
    • Hawaii, the USA. I go to Hawaii every year. I’ve been going for years and love all of the islands. Flights to Hawaii from the mainland are generally pretty cheap, especially in the past few years.
    • St. Helena. I visited St. Helena earlier this year and it blew my mind. It’s a trek to get there in the middle of the South Atlantic Ocean but it’s a relatively cheap destination once you arrive.
  10. Best Places to Visit in the Philippines on a Budget ...

    intentionaltravelers.com/best-places-philippines...
    • Cebu City, Cebu. Although Cebu City is not the cheapest of the Philippines budget destinations, it has plenty of options in terms of cheap accommodations, and it is always possible to book affordable packaged tours for all Cebu attractions.
    • Tagaytay, Cavite. Just a quick trip from Manila, Tagaytay is an ideal destination for budget travelers for so many reasons. You can find delectable local cuisine for next to nothing, and many of the tourist attractions are free.
    • Intramuros, Manila. Intramuros is one of the most visited spots in Manila, and here’s why. This walled city was founded back in the 16th century by the Spaniards and was completely ahead of its time architecturally and is characteristic of the Spanish colonial era.
    • Balanga, Bataan. Balanga is the capital city of the Bataan province, and you can come here with no worries of breaking the bank. It offers just about everything, and has attractions for both city lovers and nature enthusiasts.

    • With optimal scuba diving conditions and protected coral reefs, Curacao is an aquatic lover's paradise. But the island also appeals to outdoorsy types with its impressive flora and fauna, and to history buffs with its rich and unique Dutch and Jewish cultural heritage.
    • Vacationers enjoy the contrast between bustling Trinidad and serene Tobago. Plus, there's no shortage of lodging options on either of these two islands, meaning you can easily find a reasonable room rate in an area that appeals to you.
    • Jamaica has long been a prime destination for tourists thanks to its laid-back culture, impressive scenery and varied attractions.
    • Finding a bargain in Barbados will require patience, especially if you plan to visit in winter. Warm temperatures, turquoise waters and lively festivals draw visitors in droves.
