Great list of destinations to visit in cheap prices.

If you've read the rest of the thread then you'll know that's not the case...

Yes. There are a number of recent joiners posting one-liners agreeing with one another and with no real content, looks suspiciously like profile-building to me.

"Any ideas on the best less expensive tourist destinations to visit in asia?"


Where are you starting from? If a nearby area already your cost for flights is cheaper than someone from Europe or N. America.

On the list in the above post for me visiting Bhutan would not be cheap! From India you would have a cheaper visit from the start and without an expensive lengthy plane ride.

Not on the list is Thailand. Not the cheapest but this country offers a little of everything. Such as good food, shopping, nightlife, historical tourist destinations and good transportation. Thailand is a tourist friendly country, one of the top destinations in the world. I think just about any budget can find a place to stay and somewhere to eat.

Affordability depends on what your definition of "less expensive" means. Singapore is a nice city to visit but more expensive than Bangkok. Singaporeans, raised in a structured society, visit Bangkok for their "walk on the wild side" for something more daring. Bangkok is their Mogadishu or Baghdad in comparison. Malaysians are at the top one or two on the list for countries that visit Thailand. Closeness to Thailand makes the trip easy on the wallet. But they also go for a society where alcohol and nightlife is not frowned upon by the religious police.

Some tourists have an idea of costs that would be my luxury level. If you think a nightly hotel price the equivalent of $60 - $100 USD per night is affordable you can find that in many countries in Southeast Asia. Even in Singapore you can find a place cheaper than US $100. But in Thailand I know with a little hunting around you can find a room around 600 baht ($20 US) that has private bathroom, hot water, A/C and TV.

If a country is affordable or not depends on the individual visitor. I think you have to take into consideration the cost of local transportation too. Availability of cheap buses and even local rail service in the capital city too.

I think that Bangkok is still affordable compared to Tokyo, Singapore, Seoul, New York City, Paris and Moscow.

So, Hueymoo, what is "less expensive" mean to you?

I too consider India and Nepal could be the cheapest place to travel but it depends on you how much you want to enjoy your vacations. Everything has its own cost that you knows.

If you are looking to plan a trip at a low budget you can plan for locations in India, Bhutan, Andaman islands and more.

Have you travelled to Bhutan yet? To describe it as a "low budget" location on a par with India is pure fiction!

Srilanka and Indonesia are the cheapest, but it also depends on your interest.

In the Asian Continent, Indian is one of the best and less expensive tourist destinations to visit .
Here you can visit Himachal Pradesh, Leh-Ladakh, Adventure tours, and remote Himalayan region, etc places.
