None the less we all want to take a well deserved break and spend some time away from our worries. In times like these we must remember that travel is not a luxury and that there are plenty of beautiful travel destination that won`t break our bank. If you are low on cash but travel is on your mind, here are our favorite destination for less than $29 per day travel budget.
Even though Thailand has become a hugely popular and desired tourist destination, the country has managed to remained relatively affordable. If you avoid the most crowded and popular tourist island it`s easy to live on less than $29 USD per day. For example: Budget rooms cost around $6-10 per night, you can eat and drink for $5-8 and other activities like sightseeing will cost you around $10 USD.
All you have to do is stay in guesthouses, buy your meals from delicious local restaurants and use the local transportation. Thailand is a country where drinks coast more than food so remember to take it light and you`ll do just fine.
If you thought that Thailand is cheap than you`ll be surprised to find out that there are even cheaper and equally beautiful places. Bali is a great destination for those looking to spend less and experience new cultures . Once you get there (sometimes flights can be long and expensive) the island is relatively cheap.
Hotel rooms can cost less than $10 per night, most local meals cost $2 and “western” dishes are around $4 USD. Some activities like snorkeling are also cheap and tend to cost less than $10 USD. Remember, as you leave the southern part and go deeper into the island everything gets more cheaper.
If you exclude Panama, Costa Rica and Belize, Central America can be a pretty cheap place to get around. An average day of travel can cost less than $30 USD. In countries like Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala and Nicaragua you can find the most affordable budget hotels with price tags around $10 USD per night, local meals for less than $3 USD and beer for $1 USD. Getting around is also very cheap because most bus journeys are around $3-5 USD. To sum up, if you want to live large in Central America $30 USD per day are more than enough.
Budapest is one of mine all time favorite Europe destination. This beautiful and historic city will welcome you with hostels that start at $8 USD per night and meals for around $2 USD. The local transport is also very affordable, trains and buses cost just a couple of dollars. All you need is $25-30 USD per day to fully enjoy the sights and sounds of one of Europe’s hidden gems. Definitely a great alternative to expensive cities like Paris, Rome or Vienna.
