In the famous Greek islands, you can spend the night well and cheaply and you can also get a variety of delicious meals at cheap prices. When it comes to cheap vacation destinations, Greece is probably the most underrated country. So for your next vacation, be sure to put Greece on the list: historic sites, deep blue sea and delicious wine, what more could you wish for?
Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, has often been called one of the most exciting cities in the world for its vibrant nightlife. The metropolis is located in one of the cheapest vacation countries in Latin America. If you steer clear of wild party nights, you can experience the colorful and extravagant lifestyle of Argentina’s capital for less than €40 a day. But who wants to be in the city and urban areas when you can discover natural wonders like the Iguazú Falls in Argentina?
8: Sri Lanka
“The finest sandy beach, cloud-capped mountains, waterfalls, tea plantations and palm trees swaying in the wind – Sri Lanka is like a paradise!” This is what many travel guides say. But you can also just look forward to hearty fish curries, jungle walks or beach hotels. And all for low prices: in Sri Lanka less than €25 a day is enough and you get a true dream destination with lush landscapes and beautiful beaches.
The resorts on the Black Sea have been increasingly filled with tourists from all over the world in recent years. Probably because the summer and the sun are just as beautiful in Bulgaria as in Spain or Italy, only cheaper. If you prefer to take a trip to the city instead of a beach holiday, the capital Sofia offers hearty meals, a friendly atmosphere and many beautiful sights, this also applies to the southern cities of Burgas and Varna. Bulgaria offers something for every type of vacation and it is simply beautiful to see!
There is Belize, there is Costa Rica and there is Guatemala. Real bargain hunters come to Honduras, the cheapest vacation destination in Central America. The country is not very popular with tourists because it is considered not entirely harmless. But if you want to inform yourself in advance of the current political situation and get away from certain areas, you can go to a cheap Caribbean paradise. The country offers white sand beaches with palm trees, deep blue sea and delicious and super cheap food.
Budapest, the historic Hungarian capital on the banks of the Danube, should be on the route of all European tours. While it’s not as cheap as it was when low-cost airlines didn’t land there, prices are definitely affordable. The best thing is to pamper yourself with a delicious piece of cake, drink a schnapps for a drink and then work up a sweat in the relaxing thermal baths and all this at a very good price: in Budapest, you can definitely win a bargain or two.
Continue with one of the cheapest vacation countries in South America. In Bolivia, you can take photos as unique as the one shown above in the Salar de Uyuni, the largest salt flat in the world. But also in the heart of the city of La Paz, you can find very photogenic areas, such as the old town Calle Jaén.
Here you can admire the best preserved colonial alley in Bolivia. As if that were not enough, in South America it is difficult to find cheaper food prices than in Bolivia. For example, a bottle of Paceña beer in the restaurant costs less than two euros, as does a plate of Chairo (potato soup). Soup and beer: that’s all you need.
In India, you can spend a lot of money quickly if you want to, especially if you are going shopping or want to stay in a luxurious international hotel. You can quickly pay in both Delhi and Dubai. Away from the tourist and luxury areas, the cost of living is low, even if you like to take a taxi. For about 15-20 euros you can spend the day in India, which also makes it one of the cheapest vacation countries.
Despite the growing popularity, Vietnam is still one of the cheapest countries to live in the world. Also one of the cheapest vacation destinations. Many of the cities and especially the rural areas are very beautiful to look at: the vibrant capital of Hanoi is just as exciting, if perhaps a little less relaxing, than the country’s colorful rice fields. With about 15-20 euros* a day you can make ends meet and everything is already included. If you want to treat yourself to a little more luxury, there are no limits.
Cambodia is at the top of my list of the cheapest countries to live in. Cambodia is also one of the safest and cheapest vacation destinations. A night in a hotel costs only about ten euros, a fantastic meal even less. Cambodia is so cheap that you feel guilty for paying so little. In the past, only a few travelers ever set foot in the country, but now Cambodia is mostly on the backpacker trail and should be on yours too.
The country’s biggest attraction is Angkor Wat, one of the most famous and fascinating temple complexes in the world. Spiritual, extraordinary and cheap – definitely worth the trip.
Many people believe that you have won the lottery or some other secret source of income because of all your travels. What most people don’t know is that traveling doesn’t have to be expensive! In my opinion, traveling in many cases is not a luxury, but a necessity! Of course, it depends on your requirements and if you prefer to stay in a four or five star hotel rather than a simple hostel bed down the road, this will definitely make itself felt in the price.
However, as soon as you narrow down your requirements a bit and be flexible with things like travel period and departure airport, hopefully you’ll have the chance to get a lot of adventure for very little money!
