Dreaming of traveling the world but feeling stuck because of monetary concerns?

For those who are on a shoestring budget, don’t despair! The world is full of amazing places that won’t break the bank. Here are just 5 countries that offer great experiences for a low cost:


Vietnam is one the cheapest Asian countries — and one of the most exciting!

Take the northern province of Ha Giang, which is as pure and authentic as it gets. The limestone landscapes at Tam Coc are also not to miss. The town of Phong Nha is a fantastic adventure tourism and caving hotspot; camping inside the world’s third-biggest cave is definitely a must try.

Sri Lanka

Known for its beautiful beaches, ancient temples, and lush tea plantations, Sri Lanka is a budget-friendly destination. You can explore historical sites like Sigiriya, visit wildlife reserves, go hiking in the hill country, and enjoy delicious local cuisine at affordable prices.


You’ve probably heard of Angkor Wat— a vast temple complex that was once the heart of the ancient Khmer empire. This sprawling site is highly worth a visit, especially if you take the time to go beyond just the central temples.

But there is much more to Cambodia, from the gentle town of Kratie along the Mekong River, to the unspoiled jungles of the Cardamom Mountains and the laid back island of Koh Rong.

Myanmar (Burma )

Known as a fascinating country with rich cultural heritage. Explore the ancient city of Bagan with its thousands of temples, visit the floating villages of Inle Lake, or take a trek through the beautiful countryside. While the cost of traveling in Myanmar has increased in recent years, it still offers affordable options for accommodation and food.


A hidden gem in East Asia, offering a mix of modern cities, beautiful landscapes, and rich cultural heritage. Explore the vibrant night markets in Taipei, hike in the stunning Taroko Gorge, visit traditional temples, and indulge in delicious street food. Taiwan provides good value for money with affordable accommodations and transportation.
