It’s starting to get closer and closer to that time of year when we start to plan our summer vacations. The issue however, is that nobody wants to arrive to realise that, that new sky bar you flew to will cost you the same as your flight itself for just a couple of drinks. For this reason I have searched to find the holiday destinations with the best value on land this 2017.
You won’t have to worry about accommodation in Cambodia, with beds here as cheap as £2.50 per night! Tourists have in the past been deterred by Cambodia but is now becoming more popular with holidaymakers looking for a five-star experience without the hefty price tag. Such as the Siddharta Boutique Hotel – complete with its only ipod docks in each room, a outdoor pool and only a short walk from the Angkor Wat Archaeological Park. All of this just for as low as £50 a night! The worst part of this magical country is the fact that the prices are just so cheap that at times you almost feel bad.
Even with its recent surge in popularity Vietnam has remained rural and unspoiled. A glorious country covered in the natural beauty of its landscapes and an extremely cheap tourist destination. All you need is around £10.00 per day which would be more than enough for transport, food and drink. To give you an insight into the pricing in Vietnam a pint of Bia Hoi (Vietnam’s most popular beer) costs as little as 50p. Experience the rural life, learn Tai Chi in the mountainous resort of Da Lat.
So as you may know you can visit Mumbai which does have designer brands and prices similar to a trip to Rome but if you actually go into the less urban areas you’ll see that the cost of living is actually remarkably low. In fact in you stay in a local hostel and eat local cuisine you could spent up to a mere equivalent of £15 per day! And as India is the seventh biggest countries in world with 29 states so there is no way you’ll be able to explore it all in one trip! So do your research.
The Capital of Hungary: Budapest is a must visit for everyone. In the past it may not have been the cheapest destination but ever since the introduction of budget airlines you would be left with plenty of cash in hand to enjoy the splendours of Hungary. Visit traditional coffee houses and try a slice of chocolate chimney cake. In Hungary you can enjoy beers for a pound! Sit down meals for less then five pounds and accommodation as cheap as ten pounds per night! Hungary have a bit of everything for everyone. Enjoy the bustling cities of Siófok and Balatonfüred or escape to the countryside in Transdanubia and witness the beauty of lake Balaton the biggest lake in central Europe!
Now Honduras may not be considered to be one of the hot spots of the world. If however you decide to visit you’ll find the white beaches identical to those of the Caribbean all whilst spending no more than £25 a day! Visit the bustling port of Puerto Cortes or the colonial fortress in Omoa. Come to Honduras and have your own piece of the Caribbean for a fraction the price.
Bulgaria has recently become rather popular due to prices in comparison with more cliche trips such as to Rome. Visit the capital Sofia and soak in the culture of Europe’s second oldest city with museums and galleries such as the National Literature Museum and the Musuem of Socialist Art. Even though as previously mentioned Bulgaria has become a recent hot spot for tourists there are still some areas still left largely untouched the further east you go. If you need to relax on the beach and take in some sun go to Nesebar. Nesebar is a World Heritage site and the ideal place to start your journey of the Black Sea coast.
Travel anywhere you want! The point is that there are many places across the globe that are far more different than you imagined and for all you know could be the best place for you next destination. So when you start to plan for you upcoming holiday vacations don’t ask your friends or family where they have been instead think what it is you actually want and your needed budget.
