Best Places to Travel on a Budget
When traveling gets into your blood, it’s hard to ever want to stop exploring. However, traveling is, of course, expensive, so we have to be careful not to go overboard. For people who want to travel but can’t afford to be overgenerous with their funds, there are still a few options. Aside from all the money-saving measures you can take to reduce costs during a trip, there are also places that won’t be a drain to your bank account. Here are a few places that won’t break to bank to go explore:
When you think of Europe, you probably think of expensive, extravagant travel, but Eastern Europe is by far the most affordable part of the continent. Many of the countries in this area look like they’ve been forgotten by time, with quaint little villages enriched by history. In Ukraine you can get a room for the equivalent of $8 US dollars a night, and you can get a liter of beer in Bulgaria for $1.50, and you can get around Albania paying less than $1 for transportation! In most places in Eastern Europe you can have a great time on a bunch of roughly $40 a day!
Indonesia is a visually stunning and geographically diverse country, full of islands, volcanoes, gorgeous beaches, and beautiful architecture. You can get a full meal from anywhere between $1 and $6! Staying in a hostel will only cost you about $17 a night, and visiting all the fun attractions will only cost you on average $1. All together, you’re looking at only about $30 a day to get the most out of this country!
Machu Picchu, the world famous 15th century Inca site, is an absolute must-see. A day trip to see this magical attraction is probably the most expensive thing to do, costing around $60. Other than that, everything is so inexpensive! A cheap hostel or hotel can be as low as $15, and a nice sit down dinner will only run you $6. There are so many amazing things to do and see, like hiking the mountains of Huaraz, or visiting the many archaeological sites. You can definitely have a good time in Peru on a budget of, on average, $50 a day.
