The Cheapest Countries to Visit
Here are Mobal World Phone customers’ suggestions of the 15 cheapest countries to visit…
“Argentina. Good restaurants and cheap prices!
“My sisters and I just returned from Siem Reap, Cambodia.
Food, lodging, transportation, and wonderful Cambodian-made products were all inexpensive. The Cambodians use the U.S. dollar, so there’s the added benefit of not having to mentally convert to and from a foreign currency.”
“We just got back from China and found things really cheap there. Examples:
- An hour ride to the airport – $21
- A three-star hotel room with two bedrooms and a kitchenette – <$100
- Dinner for four at a good restaurant, including beer – $25-30
- A van, a driver and a private tour guide for all day for four of us – $140 in Beijing; $100 in other cities.
Also the bargaining on the streets for all sorts of items makes them really cheap. But you have to learn how. The exchange rate is really in the US favor right now. And there’s no tipping.
“No question about it, CHINA.
Last November I visited Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou and Suzhou and all were really inexpensive. In addition to being a cheap place to travel you virtually do all your business with a credit card or American dollars.
No need to exchange for Chinese Yuan.”
4. Czech Republic
“On a trip to the Czech Republic we were pleased to see the “old Europe” prices still exist there.
Reasonable hotels (nice), cheap food (good), and public transportation.
“Egypt – friendly, fascinating and cheap.”
“We were in Paris last November and even though the exchange rate was 1:1.5 we were able to do it inexpensively by staying in a small boutique hotel and eating in local eateries especially on the left bank.”
7. Latin America
“Stick to the “unpopular” South and Central American Countries.
They always have a good exchange rate. You have to go native to get the real deals. The plane ticket to Turkey would be expensive from the U S. Spirit airlines has cheap flights to South, Central and Islands of the Caribbean.
You could backpack anywhere in the world and travel on a budget.”
“So far Mexico seem to be the cheapest countries to travel to.”
“In Europe, Montenegro is VERY inexpensive. One example: my husband had a double espresso and I had a cappuccino (with the best foam I had during our three week trip, most of which was in Italy).
The drinks came with little individually wrapped biscuits and several kinds of sugar and sweeteners. It cost 1,80 euros. Amazing!”
“Hi—as of last Sept, Poland was the cheapest.
Such a relief to come from Spain (euro equals well over a dollar) to a place where the zloty was 3 to the dollar. A $48 zloty dinner in fact cost about $14.
A wonderful city to visit—Kracow.”
“My husband and I spent a few very enjoyable days in Krakow, Poland during our two weeks in eastern Europe in October 2006.
We ate one lunch at a government subsidized “milk bar” -we each had a plate of pierogies, kielbasa soup and a coke “light” and it all came to about $6 US.
We also took a mini-bus out to the Auschwitz museum (about 1&1/2 hrs from Krakow) and it cost the equivalent of $7 US dollars each.”
“Both the cheapest and friendliest = Portugal.
Most expensive = Paris, France, where the metro was twice the cost of that in Lisbon and Barcelona last month!!”
“Just returned from Portugal. Although they use the Euro, prices for hotel and meals are very reasonable, and I will return to this country before the rush of American tourists.”
“We haven’t been out of the country since fall 06, and of course things have skyrocketed.
However, as I’ve been looking for possible places to go this fall, it comes back to my favorite, Slovenia. Hotels in Lju still very high, but lots of other reasonable alternatives, from apartments to B&Bs. Also, it’s easy to find reasonably priced food if you stick with the locals.
And you can drive from the beach (Piran) to the Mountains (Julian Alps) on a tank of gas! The friendliest, kindest, most down-to-earth folks, too. ”
13. South East Asia
“Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand remain reasonable travel bargains.
However, travel expenses are up about 20% over last year. Good hotel rooms are still affordable, and the net work of discount airlines, mainly AirAsia, are still a bargain.
Great food is still very inexpensive. Its my favorite place to travel anyway.”
Jerry Boughton, Louisiana
“The Turkish Lira is the weakest in the world. A clean room for about $2.00. Buffet lunch about the same. But not in Istanbul. Try Ismir or Pammukele.”
“Riding my 21 speed on all the great biking trails of the US. Wonderful.”
