If you’re a backpacker, you’re always thinking about the cost of where you visit. Laos, in Southeast Asia, is one of the cheapest places possible, costing a mere thirty dollars a day. It costs only seven dollars to spend an entire day tubing down the Vang Vieng River, six dollars for a tiger balm massage, and a mere two fifty to see some of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world.
You could even rent a motorbike for a little bit of money and drive around to different towns. Hostels cost about five dollars, hotels may be as high as thirty-five. Even the most expensive meals won’t cost you more than ten dollars.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Everybody knows Rio de Janeiro as a party spot, but did you know that taking a vacation here will cost you far less than you might think? You'll be paying an average of about forty-seven dollars a day to enjoy the world-famous beaches and nightlife. In the past few years, food prices have dropped, and hotels have become the top-twenty price in the world.
You can visit Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, take a look at the incredible Christ the Redeemer statue, and take a look at the Carnival festival, one of the most legendary festivals in the world, and all for prices you'll find perfectly reasonable.
Hoi An, Vietnam
It might not be the cheapest place you can find in Southeast Asia, but the city of Hoi An in Vietnam is quite a bit cheaper than a lot of other places you can visit. Visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site old town, spend an afternoon tanning on one of the beaches, or enjoy some delicious local food for rock-bottom prices.
A good restaurant meal can cost as little as five dollars, and fresh beer can cost just pennies if you're brave enough. There are even bicycles to rent for around a dollar a day! We're also told the people of Vietnam are friendly and kind – another bonus to this place.
The cultural capital of Canada is a huge melting pot of cultures, languages, and styles. There are culinary delights from all around the world, plenty of arts such as theaters and museums to enjoy, heritage churches to marvel at, and plenty of other great options for spending your next vacation. Since it's one of the world's major metropolises, travel there is frequent and inexpensive (relatively).
You'll find there are tons of options for spending your time. Despite being in Canada, it's a French province, which means you can work on your skills in that famous romantic language, even though most people speak English perfectly well.
The ancient capital of China has an incredible amount of history to take in, but would you believe that it's pretty cheap, too? Sure, it has some of the most famous wonders of the ancient world, like the Great Wall of China, but booking a five-star hotel costs about a hundred dollars.
Traveling in the city costs a mere thirty cents, so seeing all the sites is simple. There are some more expensive options for food, but you can also find plenty of street vendors that will delight your taste buds and fill your belly. Despite the name, the Forbidden City only costs about ten dollars to get in, and you can even get an advance pass.
