Hi Mel
what is cheap,what is expensiv?

for exemple,I think a single bedroom with private Bathroom in a hostel for $8.00-20.00 in a good location in Buenos Aires,Lima,Quito,Santiago....is cheap,
good lunch or dinner for $4.00-10.00 Appetizer,dessert,incl.wine in a nice restaurant,good location,is cheap for me,because I would have to pay here minimum for the same $30.00-50.00

But for other people on a tight budget it is expensiv,because you can get a bed in a dorm for $2.00-5.00,you can get a menue for $2.00
So,what is cheap? what is expensiv?

sunny gretings to you,
Marlis

Well, it all depends on the things you do as well. I have not been to all countries, so don't know which on average is the cheapest worldwide.

But I found Bali and Thailand, although very touristy, still very cheap. And taxi rides in Beijing I found very cheap for a country which is booming.
I know that you can take a domestic flight in Turkmenistan for about 1 dollar....cheaper than taking the bus and not that unsafe (I haven't heard of any plane crashes lately).

I bought a local brand of cigarettes in Ukraine for about 15 dollarcents, and it was not even that bad.

But in general, of the countries where I have been, Syria was dirt cheap really.
Sleeping in a decent double room 4 dollar a person. Street food with a drink for under 1 dollar and a 4 hour train ride for 80 cents. And visiting Palmyra ancient ruins was free!

The cheapest I've ever heard would be Mongolia, though probably there's a number of former Soviet satellite states (Tadzikistan?) that beat even that...

The Philippines is generally an inexpensive place to live in and/or visit.

Uganda is a very inexpensive place to travel. Stayed in a great hostel where you can pitch a tent for about $7 and internet usage was free. Food and drinks were also reasonable anywhere I visited, fresh and filling, too.

Chna is comparatively budget trip for travellers who want to travel around the world.

The Philippines is generally an inexpensive place to live in and/or visit.

I think the cheapest country i've ever travelled in would have to be either Cambodia or India. You can get a really nice double room in Cambodia for about $4 a night and good food for around $1. Accomadation was slightly more expensive in India but in terms of transport I took a 27 hour train jouirney from Agra to Bombay for about $18. Cheap as chips!
