All right listen up.
These are the cheapest places to travel in theworld first up Cape Town, South Africa.
Situatedat the southern tip of the African continent, Cape Town has it all- goodbeaches, great weather, wine, and safaris nearby, not to mention an awesome blendof European and African culture.
Cape Town may be far away, but once you're there it'sone of the best overall destinations for your money.
Number 2: Vietnam.
Fifty years ago Vietnam was torn apart by war.
Today it's one ofthe top travel destinations on the planet.
Ho Chi Minh, formerly known as Saigon, has tons of beautiful French colonial architecture.
Hanoi has great street side bars that serve Bia Pho, fresh beer that costs 25cents a glass, and the one kind of expensive thing in Vietnam is sentthrough Halong Bay, which is worth it.
It's not the cheapest country in Asia; itdoesn't have the best beaches, but a motorcycle adventure from Ho Chi MinhCity to Hanoi is totally worth it.
I did it on a bike I bought in a bar for300 bucks.
So can you.
Next up: Ecuador Ecuador, named after the Equator, is quitean incredible country.
It has the Andes Mountains; it has the Galapagos Islands; ithas the Amazon rainforest not to mention beautiful colonial townslike Quito.
If you're going to go anywhere in Latin America, you should go to Ecuador.
Plus they use the dollar.
Generally speaking, in Europe tosave money, you want to travel east.
Polish city of Krakow is one of the best valuedestinations on the continent.
It's got a solid old town with great nightlife, goodrestaurants, tons of hostels, and affordable prices across the board.
Dude, and dumplings Next up: Montreal.
For a North Americanbargain head to Montreal, the capital city of the Canadian province of Quebec.
Montreal combines French-Canadian heritage with great food, a killer musicscene, and some of the best prices you will find in a North American city.
Hands-down, the classic budget traveler destination has to go to India.
It'scheap as chips, and it has it all.
Does it have stunning scenery?Dude, the Himalaya.
Good food? The best.
Plus, it's vegan friendly.
Instagrampotential? Of course, and you'll have Tinder pics to last until marriage.
There's so much to do, it's hard to know where to even start.
You've got Mumbai, home to Bollywood, Rajasthan India's largest and most colorful state, and of course the Himalaya where you can pose yoga, meditate Ajayan, and maybeeven see the Dalai Lama.
No matter where you go, you can travel in India for a whole month for the price of one week in Europe.
Forget Spring Break and go toMexico City.
The vibrant capital of Mexico is full of amazing street art, architecture, and some of the best food on the planet.
For those of you in theUnited States like ourselves especially people in California and the southernborder states, Mexico is extremely accessible.
If you're thinking aboutCancun, skip it and head down to Tulum for some boho beach vibes where you can pose yoga next to Mayan temples .
If you live in the United States, especiallythe southern border states, or if you're from California like us, Mexico is theclosest and one of the cheapest locations in the world.
Head down to BajaCalifornia where you can surf, drink craft beer, eat lobster tacos , and drinkamazing wines all for a fraction of the price that you would pay in the UnitedStates.
One of our favorite cities in Europe is Budapest, a stunning capitalfull of Art Nouveau and Baroque architecture from the golden days of theAustro-Hungarian Empire.
Even better Budapest sits on top of 120 natural hotsprings that bubble up into these bathhouses.
After soaking your bones allday, scarf down a bowl of goulash and then go hit the ruined bars of theJewish Quarter.
All this can be done for as low as 35 Euros a day.
Feellike a change of scenery? How about Nepal? Nepal is the accesspoint for the Himalaya, and even if you're not trying to climb Mount Everest, which I feel like most of us are, there's a ton of stuff to do: you can gowhitewater rafting, paragliding, explore the Buddhist monasteries, and even go ona wildlife safari in the jungles and see rhino.
Yes, they have rhino in Nepal.
The country is still recovering from the 2015 earthquake, so your tourist dollarswill go a long way in rebuilding Nepal.
Sri Lanka is one of the most overlookedcountries in Asia, so if you want something like India, but are looking forsomething more off the beaten path, Sri Lanka might be for you.
This islandnation was once ravaged by civil war but is now in peace.
Travelers arediscovering beautiful beaches, colorful culture, and the 5, 000 elephants that arejust wandering around the country.
Five thousand elephants just walkingaround Sri Lanka.
The only downside is because it's still not very developedfor tourism, there aren't a ton of options.
So you might have to spend some time looking around, but here's to adventure.
Next up is NicaraguaNicaragua is a Central American country that is a great alternative to CostaRica.
Costa Rica is an incredible country, but because it's become so popular, it'sgotten much more expensive.
That's not the case with Nicaragua.
Yet, it's gotundeveloped beaches, great surf, cheap beer and tons of adventure opportunities.
Towns like San Juan del Sur are a great place to get started.
But get downto Nicaragua before that all changes.
Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The capitalof Argentina is a great place to visit.
It's super fun and a great deal.
It's got ablend of Italian and Spanish immigrants with French architecture that isuniquely Argentinean.
The bohemian neighborhood of San Telmo isespecially popular with tourists, but it's a really good place to stay, especiallyif you can find a nice Airbnb.
For fun think steak dinners every night, wash down with Malbec wine, and plenty of beautiful people teach you how to tango.
Next up: Thailand.
Thailand is the go-todestination for most backpackers and with good reason.
Where else can you get a private cabana on the beach for 10 bucks, an hour-longmassage for 5 , and amazing street food for $1? Only in Thailand.
The islands andbeaches are starting to get a bit more expensive, but Chiang Mai in the north, Thailand's second largest city , is still a great deal, especially if you're tryingto do some trekking or volunteering at elephant sanctuaries.
If you want to head up the islands, Koh Pipi is still a great deal and Krabi has some incrediblerock-climbing overhanging the ocean.
Next to Thailand is Cambodia, which is evencheaper and comes with a side of history that will snap you out of that daze fromall those Thai messages.
On one side you have Angkor Wat, one of the greatestachievements of mankind.
On the other side, you have the killing fields of theKhmer Rouge in which one quarter of Cambodia's population was exterminatedduring one of the worst genocides of the last century.
Thankfully, life hasreturned to normal in Cambodia, and you can find a lot of the same stuff inThailand, but for cheaper.
Back to Europe.
we're going to talk about Greece.
Although Greece is on the Euro, it was one of the countries that was hardesthit by the 2008 financial crisis.
That's bad for locals.
It's good for youas a traveler because prices there are very low.
The real gems in Greece arethe islands like Crete, the Instagram friendly island of Mykonos or Santoriniand the backpacker party spot of Ios.
Mix and match your favorite islandswith a ferry trip, and you're on your way.
At the top of our bucket list is thePhilippines.
As we've mentioned, the beaches of Thailand have gotten relativelyexpensive, but people say that Philippines is twice as cool and halfthe price.
Add in some of the friendliest locals on the planet, some cheap airconnections, and the Philippines is looking pretty good.
Heading to South America, we're talking about Colombia.
Colombia, the country that's long been associated with Pablo Escobar, cocaine, and violence is finally getting the credit that itdeserves as one of the best destinations in South America.
and about time becausethis country has everything: beaches on the Pacific and the Caribbean, the Andesand the Amazon, the Candelaria Quarter in Bogota, the Spanish colonial port of Cartagena, and the unspoiled coastline around Santa Marta are all on our bucketlist and should be on yours, as well.
Next up: the Baltic nation of Estonia.
Most travelers either don't know what it is or think it's part of Russia, but it's ahidden gem.
Tallinn, the capital, has an immaculately preserved old quarterthat's actually a Unesco World Heritage site, and it's also a cool part of towncalled Kalamaja, which has a bunch of new modern stuff.
It gives you that Nordic vibe at way less money.
Usually overshadowed byits Central American neighbors, Guatemala is an incredible country.
It'sfull of living Maya culture surrounded by rugged active volcanoes, and littletowns like Antigua are an incredible place to visit and brush up on yourSpanish.
Prague is an essential stop on any Europe trip with astorybook old town and beer that's cheaper than water, literally.
Cheaper andmore beautiful still is Cesky Krumlov with far fewer crowds and much lowerprices.
The next country on our list has had a tumultuous time in the past coupleof years, especially since the Arab Spring.
I'm talking about Egypt withconstant political protests, military coups, plane crashes, and the occasionalshark attack.
I know it sounds bad, but Egypt does still have a lot to offer.
Understandably, tourism has dropped by over 40 percent to Egypt in recent years.
Now it does seem that things have cooled down there.
So if you do go, chances areyou'll get the Pyramids of Giza all to yourself.
And just so you know, thePyramids of Giza are one of the only remaining 7 wonders of the ancient world.
If you're planning a visit here or anywhere in this region, it's always agood bet to check with your foreign office or if you're from the UnitedStates, the State Department.
Moving back stateside, we're going to New Orleans, Louisiana, my favorite city in the United States.
It blends French and Caribbeanculture with great music, and the food alone is worth the trip.
Skip the crowds atMardi Gras and hit the French Quarter in the shoulder season.
There're wayfewer crowds, but Frenchmen Street and all the live music bars that are on itare still popping.
Croatia is the darling of most travelers, but unfortunately its popularity has increased its price.
Save money by spending time in lesser-known places like Vis, Plitvice National Park or its capital Zagreb.
Sorry that Imispronounced all three of those.
Better yet, check out the Bay of Kotor andMontenegro, the beaches of Albania, or Sarajevo in Bosnia.
Moving back toSoutheast Asia, we have Myanmar or Burma.
I was here in 2009 when this countrywas largely closed off to the rest of the world.
There were no ATMs and verylittle foreign money.
A lot has changed since then.
The country's leadershave made a lot of progress towards democracy, and it's a lot more popularnow with travelers.
The former capital of Rangoon is a funky mixture of oldBritish colonial buildings, and it's a great place to get your bearings beforeheading up to the Temples of Bagan or Inle Lake.
Heading back toSouth America, let's talk about Bolivia.
This landlocked Andean country is one ofthe best travel bets for South America.
Plus, it's got a bit of everything, fromthe world's highest lake to the infamous death road, which you can do on amountain bike, and the world-famous Uyuni Salt Flats.
all of these are greatplaces to visit, and supposedly Bolivia has one of the most incredible kind oflunar martian landscapes.
For the Caribbean, we're recommending Dominican Republic.
It is the cheapest country in the region with the exception of its next-door neighbor Haiti.
is much safer than Haiti and has a lot bettertourism infrastructure, so hence a recommendation.
There're great beaches, but the problem can be that it's hard to find something that's not an expensiveresort, so check on Airbnb for a bungalow.
Heading back to Eastern Europe, we'regoing to Bulgaria, which happens to be the home country of our good friend Raya, but also the home of the cheapest capital in Europe, Sofia.
You can eat, drink, party, and sleep here for well under $40 a day.
That's why it's makingthis list.
But don't forget that Bulgaria is on the Black Sea.
It has beaches, islands , mountains, not to mention UNESCO sites like Nessebar with incrediblearchitecture.
The best kept secret in Western Europe is hands-down Portugal.
The capital Lisbon is one of the most enchanting cities in Europe.
Seven hillsdotted with colorful villas and crisscross with iconic trolley.
Butit's not just beautiful, it's great value.
Good luck trying to find a coffee overone euro Accommodation in particular is cheap andeasy to find because it's still undiscovered by most tourists.
The onlydownside is there's not a lot of direct flights to Lisbon from other countriesoutside of Europe, so you might have to fly through Madrid and then take a train.
Heading back to Australasia, let's go to Bali.
Bali the most popular island inIndonesia is no secret.
thanks Eat Pray Love.
Nor is it thecheapest.
thanks Australia, but it's still a good deal for those of you wanting toget away from it all without much hassle.
Rent an inexpensive villa with a pool, anautomatic motorbike, sign up for some yoga classes and you're chillin'.
Mostpeople stick to Abood, but if you are a surfer, head down to the south.
Waves like Uluwatu are some of the best in the world.
And if you get bored of Bali.
don't worry there's 17, 000 other islands in Indonesia and all of them are cheaperthan Bali.
Last but not least, Morocco.
Easy to reach from Europe, inexpensive, this NorthAfrican paradise is the original bohemian getaway.
It's the safest countryin North Africa; it's got tons of style.
Tangier is the gritty port popularizedby expats, like the Rolling Stones.
Essaouira is the vibey surf town, completewith a Portuguese castle and former home of Jimi Hendrix.
Marrakech is theplace to go if you want that vibey Instagram photo of you chillin' next to aRiyadh, which are those big courtyards with the fountain in the middle.
That's our list.
