I know what you’re thinking. You have so little in your pocket and still, you love to travel the world. While I agree that there are many destinations around the world that are extremely expensive yet there is always something left in the travel pouch for the budget-friendly people.
On a more economic level, I’d suggest you keep your traveling to the off-season times to avoid paying too much for accommodation. Fall is a great time to travel, so that should give you enough time to save the loonies you need for one of these vacations. Eating at street vendors is a great way to keep costs low and countries like Asia offer some of the lowest prices for hostels.
Here are some great destinations that are fit for your pocket. Come, let’s take a look!
1. Hanoi, Vietnam
If you choose to go to Vietnam for a vacation, make sure you visit in late December so you feel the amazing weather. Vietnam will present you with cheaper than average upscale accommodations, cheap & healthy food and gorgeous sights.
2. Bali, Indonesia
The best months to travel to Indonesia are April, May, September, October. Food and hotels are extremely cheap. Find yourself surviving the price of a coffee every day with delicious meals for the equivalent of 1 Canadian Dollar.
3. Buenos Aires
In Buenos Aires, you can visit the park, take a walk, fall in love with the French-inspired architecture and dance all night. You can eat cheap and taxis will only cost around $5-$8 per day. You could also travel by foot and walk all of the different neighborhoods, like Palermo.
Albania has incredible beaches along its coastline for only a portion of a price of a common European beach vacation to Sicily or the Greek Islands. Accommodation is so cheap that it starts at just $5.
5. Lisbon, Portugal
Go to Lisbon during mid-spring to early fall for the best flight deals! A bottle of wine and an entree can be bought for around €5 each. This is the perfect time to travel Europe because the dollar is so high against the euro.
6. Arizona, USA
Arizona has lowering hotel accommodations. Moreover, flying with Allegiant Airlines through Bellingham is always substantially cheaper than flying out of Vancouver International Airport. So yes, this may well fit in your list.
7. Costa Rica
In Costa Rica, the National parks only cost a few bucks to visit. Once you go to a park, you can hike, walk and explore for free. The public transport system is also amazingly cheap, the beaches are gorgeous, and the food is pretty reasonable too.
8. Crete, Greece
Visiting Greece is cheaper than average. Crete has the best seafood possible and they nearly invented the idea of “farm-to-table”.
9. Mazatlan, Mexico
Right now, the exchange rate is $1 for 19.13 Mexican pesos. Mazatlan is not exactly a super tourist destination like other Mexican destinations and is the shrimp capital of Mexico. Food is very cheap because it’s in Sinaloa, which grows the majority of production in Mexico.
The greatest months to travel to Cuba are sometime between September to November and January to March. Make sure to study a little bit before you travel there for advice on ways to save a few bucks and travel on the cheap road.
11. San Juan, Puerto Rico
If you’re on a budget, go to Puerto Rico during the off-season, which goes from the end of April through mid-December. No passport and no currency exchange are required because Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory.
12. South Korea
In South Korea, you could survive on a daily budget of $20 to $30. Street food is always a great option for cheap food, but restaurant prices are surprisingly affordable as well.
That’s all folks!
