10 cheap destinations to discover the world

By Marie-Pier Hamon – on in Travel,
It is wrong to think that travelling is excessively expensive. It is possible to find cheap destinations. Here are 10 of them!

When we think of the word “travel”, we often associate it with several expenses. It goes without saying that travelling involves some costs. To move from one country to another, you often have to take a means of transport such as a plane. You also have to pay for accommodations. However, you can travel to more affordable destinations and thus not deprive yourself of the pleasure of discovering the world. Here is a selection of cheap destinations that will allow you to explore various places on the planet without breaking the bank!

1 Thailand

One of the places that should be on your bucket list is Thailand. In this Southeast Asian country, you will find several places to visit, at an extremely affordable price. The landscapes are as eclectic as they are captivating and Thailand is known for its cheap cuisine, but it is also very tasty. If you want a good dose of change of scenery, go to the Phi Phi Islands. You will find white sand, a blue expanse of water as far as the eye can see, as well as mountains set in a paradisiacal setting. You can also visit Bangkok, and explore some of the city’s most beautiful hotels.


2 South Africa

South Africa is also one of the travel destinations you can explore without breaking the bank. If you are a fan of zoos, you will be happy in this country. Indeed, you can go on safaris and observe lions and white rhinos without spending a fortune. We also suggest you go hiking to discover the Drakensberg landscape, an impressive mountain range. You can also venture to the Cape of Good Hope; this rocky promontory will give you a spectacular view of the surroundings. Don’t forget your camera!

The Czech Republic is probably one of the cheapest destinations in Europe. Prague has delicious restaurants to discover where you can get a gourmet meal for just a few Czech crowns. In addition, the capital of the Czech Republic does not lack in attractions! Just a Pack suggests, among other things, that you visit the royal castle, the astronomical clock with 12 dials and Wenceslas Square, known as the “Champs-Élysées of Prague”.


5 Peru

Peru is also a cheap destination where you can travel in an affordable way. Therefore, if you have ever dreamed of going to Cusco to visit Machu Picchu, know that you can go there while still having money to explore other ruins and historical monuments. You can easily add the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption to your itinerary or Qenko, an Inca sanctuary located a few kilometres north of Cusco.

Nepal is another destination that we suggest you explore. The capital of this country, Kathmandu, is very impressive. Located between several mountains, do not hesitate to explore this incredibly culturally rich destination. You can discover several historical treasures, including the Swaymbhunath (Monkey Temple) built in honour of Buddha several centuries earlier. Durbar Square is also to be seen with its many Hindu temples and statues as well as the Thamel district, considered a must-see in Kathmandu.

 

You can therefore easily travel with a limited budget provided, of course, that you travel to cheap destinations and that you plan your holidays properly.
