20 Countries Where Your Money Goes Further

Sometimes you want to explore the world, but don’t have enough money saved – or so you think. Believe it or not, traveling doesn’t have to be expensive if you pick the right destination. Let me give you some ideas:

1. India

India is probably one of the cheapest countries out there. Depending on where you go, you could potentially travel on $5 or less per day! If you stay away from the main touristic areas, it can be even cheaper!

2. Vietnam

It’s a great place to go for a cross country-motorcycle ride. When a bowl of noodle soup (Pho) or a sandwich (Banh Mi) costs $1-2, you can’t go wrong.

3. Bolivia

Bolivia is the cheapest country in South America. You really don’t need to make an effort to make it cheap, but if you’re really on a budget, just eat at the Mercado Central (Central Market). Every town has one!

4. Hungary

Hungary is located in Eastern Europe, the cheapest part of the continent. You don’t need deep pockets to enjoy the hot baths in Budapest.

5. Indonesia

It’s no wonder why many expats flock to Bali and other islands. You have great weather and wonderful surfing for very affordable prices.

6. Greece

Greece was hit hard by the economic crisis and therefore became an even cheaper destination. Just choose the islands carefully, as some can be expensive.

Hopping aboard a transcontinental flight on route to a new, ready-to-explore destination is a rush. Traveling teaches us about the world, sure. But, more than that, it teaches us about ourselves. You also probably already know that, unlike your comfort zone, traveling presents a lot of inherent risks. It’s a sad reality, but it’s a reality that rings true. You, as a tourist, are a two-bit criminal’s dream target. After all, you have absolutely no idea where you are, no idea where to go for help, and no clue what the scammers have in store.
