    2. El Nido – Philippines

    Nothing screams “hot budget destination” more than the hundreds of islands that comprise the Philippines. If you are looking for an untouched paradise at an affordable price, then there’s no better place. Although the region has become more touristic in the last few years, it’s still possible to find pristine beaches.

    El Nido consists of 45 islands and islets and is located in the north of Palawan. Unlike Boracay, which is extremely crowded, you can still find quiet beaches in El Nido. Go kayaking to explore the many beautiful coves dotted around the coast.
