I have yet to meet someone who does not enjoy traveling. Everyone enjoys exploring the different cuisines, landscapes and cultures around the globe. The only barrier is money. Not everyone can travel easily. But never give up on something that you love. If you enjoy traveling, don’t back out just because you are not loaded with cash. Good news is that the world is very vast and the choices are endless.
If you are a hardworking, salaried person like myself, worry not. You too have plenty of choices for vacationing. Granted European countries like Norway are too expensive but who says the rest of the world is not beautiful? It is and you have every right to see the beauty that it offers. Here I have compiled a list of the 7 cheapest destinations around the world.
Thailand seems to be the top choice for budget travelers. It is beautiful, vibrant and most importantly affordable. The beaches of Thailand and the exotic street food is a hit among travelers.
Boasting British architecture, gorgeous tea plantations and a rich history, Vietnam is the jewel of Asia. In fact, some would go as far as calling it the most popular destination in the region. The air ticket to Vietnam is pretty much the only major expense. But if you maintain a frequent flyer account online, you can bring down the cost considerably.
Cambodia is insanely cheap, especially if you are someone who earns in dollars. And you are not really compromising if you choose it as your next holiday destination because it truly is a unique place. The country’s highlights are its cuisine and culture.
Again if you are someone who earns in dollars, you will find India quite affordable. Since India is so big, you have the option to experience contrasting landscapes, cultures and cuisines as you go around exploring it. Whether it is the beaches in Goa, the tea plantations in Darjeeling, the Mughal architectural sites in Delhi or the temples in Varanasi, India is a wonderful country to experience and explore.
Bulgaria is still at the stage where it is trying to boast its tourism industry. So enjoy visiting it while this stage lasts because once travelers realize how fun and beautiful the country is, the cost of vacationing there will definitely rise.
6. Sri Lanka
The beaches and tea plantations as well as temples in Sri Lanka are an absolute delight to explore. The Island is home to some of the friendliest people on earth so tourists enjoy every minute they spend there. If you have a frequent flyer account online, you can redeem the accumulated miles to further bring down the cost of holidaying in Sri Lanka.
Due to the economic crisis in Greece, the cost of holidaying there has become quite low. The Greek islands are still a bit expensive though. But the rest of the country has become ideal for budget travelers.
