5 Cheap Holiday Destinations

Following on from the success of our previous post, 5 Cheap International Holiday Destinations, we’ve decided to show you even more cheap holiday spots to keep you travelling!

Cambodia

We couldn’t have wrote our first post without including Thailand, but Cambodia is another little gem in South East Asia which is even cheaper. Sharing a border with Thailand, Laos and Vietnam, Cambodia has everything you would expect from a South East Asian country: stunning beaches, delicious food, exotic markets, cheap merchandise and affordable accommodation. Continually ranked one of the cheapest countries to visit in the region, it’s often overlooked, with visitors opting to visit the more popular Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia and Malaysia. This can work in your favour, while tourists are flocking to Cambodia’s neighbours, you can reap the rewards of a country where decent accommodation can be found for under $20 per night, food will set you back only a couple of dollars and you have an entire coastline of stunning, untouched, tropical beaches at your disposal. Get there before the rest realise what they’re missing!

Croatia

I had the pleasure of visiting Croatia last summer and I’m still raving about it. Dubrovnik is truly breathtaking and some of the smaller towns located to the North and South of Split on the Adriatic Sea such as Zadar and Trogir shouldn’t be missed. I rarely paid over $30 per day for food (I averaged between $15 and $25 in total) and hostel accommodation can be found on average for $20 per night. An added bonus was the transport network, I did several day-trips out of Split to the surrounding towns within a 2-4 hour radius on the local bus network and I was only paying around $5 to $10 per trip. Croatia is quickly becoming a popular European tourist destination and it’s easy to see why.

Spain

Spain’s much documented financial woes are blessing for holiday makers. With a weak currency and falling costs resulting in cheap accommodation, food and activities, it’s the perfect time to visit this vibrant country. I visited Spain in late 2012 and was at awe at the quality of food on offer for the price. I sat down to the lovely three course meal pictured below for under 10 euros ($13 USD). And of course, the famous Spanish tapas is always a cheap option for those looking to grab a quick bite to eat. Simply wander into any pub and you’ll find the bar filled with delicious, bite-sized snacks for only a dollar or two per serving. Spain is your best option for a cheap western European holiday this year.

Spain

Egypt

After the 2011 revolution, tourist numbers dropped dramatically. As there is still some hesitation to return, there are some real bargains available for the willing. Travel Mail found a seven-night all-inclusive holiday to Sharm el Sheikh, the popular coastal tourist destination, from £343 ($540 USD) per person. A bonus of visiting now before the crowds return? You may actually get a clear shot of the pyramids without a thousands tourists standing before it.

Egypt

Bolivia

South America’s best value option according to popular travel guide Lonely Planet. With set-menus rarely over $5 USD (even cheaper for street food!), budget rooms for as low as $10 USD per night and public transport as cheap as anywhere, it’s turning into an essential stop for any South American trip.
