It’s no secret that traveling can cost a large amount of money, but on the flip side there are plenty of tips and tricks you can use that will make it much more affordable. Here we’ll take a look at the top destinations that are perfect for budget travelers. These are hidden gems that are must-see places, sights, and attractions.


Thailand Haad Yao Beach

In terms of affordability, Thailand is hard to beat. The destination is filled with beauty, must-see attractions, fabulous cuisine, stunning beaches, and friendly people all at a price that will surprise you. If you're up to traveling the country and experiencing its well-kept secrets, be sure to check out spots such as Doi Inthanon National Park, Khao Rang Hill Viewing Platform in Phuket, Pu Chi Fa Mountain, and Haad Yao - 7km Long Beach.


When creating a list of the most popular travel destinations in Europe, Portugal doesn’t usually make the list. It’s one of those forgotten-about destinations, which is a shame because this country is anything but dull. Travelers are often shocked to see the beauty of this country, and let’s not forget to mention the cuisine – which is out of this world. 

As for its hidden gems, the list is vast and includes such sights as Quinta da Regaleira Sintra, Costa Nova Aveiro - Porto, Azenhas do mar, Casa do Penedo Moreira do Rei, and Berlengas Archipelago Peniche.

The Balkans

The Balkans is a region in Southeastern Europe and includes such places as Montenegro, Bosnia, Albania, Bulgaria, and more. This geographical region is traditionally less expensive than other areas of Europe in terms of travel. You can save money on flights, accommodations, dining, shopping, and even entrance fees at attractions. 

Balkans Beach

All in all, it’s a great way to explore a slice of Europe while on a tight budget. Bulgaria, for example, is known for having some of the most deserted beaches that you'll find in all of Europe. It can make for a peaceful European beach getaway.

You can book a pre-arranged tour that takes you to all the hot spots or create a customtour that gives you more control in terms of pricing.


zakynthos coast Greece

As the Greek economy continues to recover and bounce back, expect prices to climb, which means now is the time to visit. Besides the stunning architecture and history, Greece is also lined with gorgeous beaches, and you'll be treated to some of the best food in the world.


The destination of Mexico isn’t a secret, but what you may not realize is just how many price points you can find in the country. Sure, there are plenty of luxury accommodations and high-end dining and shopping, but budget-savvy travelers can also find lots to choose from. Some of the cheapest places in Mexico that you can visit include Playa del Carman, Puerto Vallarta, Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca City, Guadalajara, and Mexico City.

Use These Additional Money-Saving Tips

Besides choosing a budget-friendly destination, there are also other money-saving tips you can embrace. You want to be sure you act fast when you see cheap tickets, be flexible with your travel dates, consider traveling during the destination’s off-season, skip the car rental and opt for public transport instead, eat where the locals frequent, and steer clear of the “tourist traps”.

Your Budget Doesn’t Have to Hold You Back

Just because you’re traveling on a tight budget doesn’t mean it needs to hold you back. Each of these destinations offers competitive pricing and some spectacular sights, nature, and experiences.
