If you are looking to travel, but want to do so on a budget, in some ways you are a little more limited. You can visit places that are more local to you and have a bit of a staycation.
You could go further afield, but then sometimes the cost to get somewhere will eat into your budget that you have. However, there are many destinations, all around the world, that can be pretty inexpensive once you get there.
For many of us, Thailand can be quite far to travel to. But once you are there, it is one of the cheapest places to be. It is easy to see why it is a popular destination for backpackers and students.
The food is amazing, and if you buy the local street food, then it is exceptionally cheap. The cost goes up when you go to westernized restaurants or resorts to eat. So if you live as the locals do, it won’t cost too much to keep you fed. The beaches are stunning there, with crystal clear waters. There are places to hike, as well as animal reserves and elephant rides. But do you know what,

Prague, Czech Republic
If you want to go to Europe, then you will be spending a lot on flights to get there.
There are lots of expensive cities in Europe, though. London, Paris, and Vienna are all really expensive to stay in, as well as eat and drink in. So a city like Prague is a good option.
Even though it is still fairly popular with tourists, it is much cheaper and subdued. You can see many sights on foot and eat well for less too. You get to experience Europe but spend half of the money.
New Orleans, USA
You can’t get away from the music in a place like New Orleans.
There are buskers all over the city, as well as in bars and restaurants. So if you want to party or celebrate in style, but still on the cheap, then New Orleans is a good option for you. You could even make it cheaper by staying outside of the city closer to areas like Grand Isle State Park or the Baton Rouge area.
Get yourselves some tents and camp gear and camp out, instead of paying for more expensive hotels in the city. Then you will be able to enjoy the atmosphere and environment, but get back to nature, and save some money too.
There is a lot to do in Mexico that doesn’t have to cost a lot. Not too long ago I decided to take a trip out to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The beaches were always beautiful and every day we headed out to Mango Deck where Happy Hour seemed never ending.
Or if you’re not into that, you can visit the white sand beaches or munch on some of the world’s best street food in areas like Oaxaca City. The cost is next to nothing, so perfect if you fancy a trip south of the border.
So have you thought about any of these places for your next trip?
