We live in a beautiful world full of incredible destinations that inspire all kinds of wanderlust. But, what to do when you want to travel but your bank account suggests otherwise? Believe it or not, it’s still possible to hop on a plane and head off into the horizon. We’ve compiled a list of the most affordable places to travel to in 2018.
Make this year one for the books and don’t let yourself miss out on incredible experiences and adventures in far-off destinations. Here are some of the best cheap places to travel internationally!
When it comes to the most affordable places to travel to, look no further than the beautiful country of Romania. This hidden gem is full of amazing historical sites (like magnificent castles) that exude those luxe-European vibes. Plus, you can get by with less than $20 a day, easily! A night at a hostel will cost you around $12, and your $3 tickets to the museum won’t break the bank.
So, why not treat yourself to an authentic Romanian experience this year and spend the rest of your hard earned money on the other things in life that really matter, like souvenirs, for example?
Nestled in South America, Ecuador is not only an incredible destination for nature lovers, but it’s also easily one of the most affordable places to travel to in South America. And guess what, you don’t have to skip your daily Starbucks to experience everything Ecuador has to offer. Rent a bike for $9, score a delicious meal at $3 and rest your body after a day of exploring for under fifteen bucks!
Morocco is at the top of many bucket lists, and for good reason – it’s absolutely beautiful. Located in northern Africa between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, Morocco will make you feel as though you have been transported back in time. Go on a souk tour in Marrakech, visit the majestic blue city of Chefchaouen or hike the Toubkal mountains for a lot less than you’d expect. Eat and sleep like a boss for under $10 dollars and a local bus trip to some of the incredible sites will cost you less than your weekly yoga class!
If you want to experience Eastern Europe without the crowds and without breaking the bank, head to Poland. A popular destination amongst travellers of all ages, this country is definitely a must-add to any travel list. Explore medieval castles in Krakow or shop and dance all night in Warsaw all for under $20. Not too shabby if you ask us!
It should come as no surprise that Chile is on this list. It was ranked as Lonely Planet’s top country to visit in 2018, there is no doubt that this breathtaking nation needs to be one (of the many) trips you take this year. A night at an affordable hostel will run you around $16, while your meals won’t be more than $10. Not to mention that some national parks and attractions are free! Return home with a lifetime of memories that will leave you astonished years after your trip has ended without the urge to see a financial advisor.
6. New Zealand
If there is one thing we know about New Zealand, it’s that there is no shortage of breathtaking sights. And you don’t have to be a fan of J.R.R. Tolkien’s work to enjoy it.
