Hi travellers and backpackers,
i have been a travel news article regarding the world's cheapest destination and they came up with these countries, Mexico, Greece, Burma, Thailand and Spain.
Do you agree with them or have you experienced other travel destinations which are cheaper as well? Share your thoughts and recommendation. Who knows, i could travel there based on your recommendation.
Personally I don´t really think it applies to Spain anymore. Just to give you an example from my point of you: until the 90´s many of my fellow german citizens spent their vacation in Spain because it offered a lot of bang for the buck, but since then the country has become more expensive so many go to Turkey or Croatia instead. The situation might have recently changed because of the difficult financial situation of the country but I´m sure there are still more affordable destinations.
Thanks Wizzmor and Niels1303. i have just came back from a trip in China and it was really cheap compared to Taiwan and Hong Kong.
India and Nepal are also among the cheapest destination among the world.
India and Bolivia are the cheapest I've been to. However, India is quickly loosing it's status as the ultimate cheap destination. On a recent trip, I struggled to keep my daily budget within twice what I spent per day 8 years ago.
Most of them have been mentioned: I agree with India and Bolivia.
Syria also is/was very cheap, although it's not really a destination you want to go to nowadays.
I found Georgia and Armenia to be cheap-ish for European destinations, although you have to avoid the big hotels!
Just returned from Jordan and found it very good value for money. Given the plethora of great historical and natural sights, they cater for the top end, as well as the lower end traveller.
As a rule, I would recommend not to book accommodation as website tend to ask for more.
