20 Countries Where Your Money Goes Further

13. Thailand

Thailand is a cheap SE Asian country with a first world feel — you can’t go wrong there! If you want it even cheaper, you should avoid the beaches in the south and explore the mountains up north.

14. Morocco

If you’d like to experience a bit of northern Africa at affordable prices then you should explore Morocco. It’s the gateway to the Sahara Desert, where you can spend the night with Berber tribes.
