Traveling around the world can be expensive, especially in countries such as Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom and Western Europe. Hotels, food and sightseeing can quickly add and eat your budget in a short time. Although these places are expensive, there are many other countries where you can travel for very little money. Here are 10 countries to travel cheaper.
Laos is a beautiful inland country in Southeast Asia, bordering Thailand, Burma, Cambodia, Vietnam and China. Rich in culture and natural beauty, Laos has much to offer for the traveler. Guest houses are cheap and it is easy to find one under $10 a night. Like most Asian countries, street food is abundant and very cheap for about $1 per meal. Even meals in restaurants cost only a few dollars. It is easy to travel around Laos for 20 – 30 dollars a day.
There are many opportunities to bargain in Central America, but Guatemala is much cheaper than the more popular Panama and Costa Rica. Beautiful beaches, rainforests, mountains and ancient ruins are on offer and you can ride cheaply. It is easy to get a room below $20 a night and cheap meals are also available for just a few dollars a meal. You can travel around Guatemala for less than $35 a day.
In Europe you can travel cheaply in Europe. Greece is currently particularly cheap due to the recession and is a great option for those who travel cheaply. Rooms in the hostel can be found for $10 a night, and street food is available, and delicious gyros cost between $2 and $3. Even with a few restaurant meals you can easily travel around Greece for less than $40 a day.
India has always been a cheap country to travel, and with such a rich culture and so much to see and do, India is a great place to travel at such favorable prices. Rooms may have different prices depending on where you go and what level of comfort you want, but cheap options are almost always available. Cheap food is always available and tastes amazing! It is possible to travel to India for $20-$35 per day.
Like Laos, Cambodia is another country full of culture and beauty, with plenty to see and do. Rooms can be found for just $2 a night, but a budget of $10 a night is reasonable. Street food in Cambodia is great and costs less than $1 per meal, while meals in restaurants cost only a few dollars. Some people are known to travel around Cambodia for just $10 a day, but it makes more sense to budget $20-20-20 a day and really enjoy yourself.
There are many budget options in Eastern Europe and Romania is a great choice. Full of history and interesting people and places, it does not receive the attention it deserves. If you live in hostels and go in cheap restaurants, you can travel around Romania for 30 – 40 dollars a day.
Bolivia is an excellent cheap destination in South America. High in the Andes Bolivia offers a lot to see and do. You can get a room for less than $15 a night, while food can be as low as $2 a meal, depending on where you eat. A good budget for Bolivia is around $35 a day.
Like other Southeast Asian countries, Vietnam is an ideal place for those who travel cheaply and is full of great culture and natural beauty. Comfortable rooms cost about $10 a night and the food on the street is under $1 a meal. Restaurant meals cost between $1 and $3 per meal. In Vietnam you can travel for less than $15 a day, but a more comfortable budget is about $20 – 30 a day.
Another Central American marketplace is the charming small country of Honduras. Here you can find rooms for less than $15 a night, while cheap meals cost only a few dollars. It is quite possible to travel in Honduras for less than $35 a day.
Nepal is probably the cheapest country I was in and probably the most beautiful one. It is a very poor country and travel costs reflect this. Budget rooms and local meals cost only a few dollars. If you wanted to, it would be possible to travel to Nepal for less than $10 a day, but it largely depends on what you want to do. If you take part in walking tours, etc., your budget will increase significantly. On this note that you can still easily travel to Nepal for less than $30 a day.
There are many other countries in the world that fit into this category, these are just to name a few. Travelling around the world can be very cheap if you know where to go.
