The world is full of affordable destinations. No matter what continent, there are always places you can visit on a budget – even countries we think of as expensive are quite budget-friendly if you know certain tips and tricks.
If you’re looking to travel on a low budget and wondering where you should go, here are the 5 best and cheapest places to travel internationally:
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 spend a lot of money.
- Central America
If you want to roam ancient ruins, trek through the jungle, surf, and eat delicious food with few tourists around – then visit the smaller countries in Central America, for example El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Guatemala. Here you will find many budget hotels and bus journeys.
Cambodia is affordable, beautiful, and the locals are incredibly hospitable. 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 the cheapest backpacking destinations in the world.
- South Korea
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. Trains are cheap. Everything here is cheap – plus it’s fun and different. If you’re looking for a budget trip to Asia, visit South Korea.
India is a cheap backpacking destination with a rich cultural history, top class food, helpful and curious locals, incredible regional diversity, great tea, and a lot to do. It’s a gigantic place best either explored in either one large trip or a few smaller chunks. Either way, don’t miss India.
