Here are some of the cheapest countries in the world to visit!
HomeExchange promotes free home exchange, so we decided this week to match your future free home exchanges with cheap (sorry, unfortunately not free) holiday destinations with the hopes of enticing you to some of these countries! Low cost airlines are nowadays far more dominant in the airline industry and it is becoming easier to travel all over the world at very little cost. We have chosen 5 countries which will promise a low priced holiday experience, with the same (if not better) cuisine, culture and more than the usual holiday destinations. Let’s start!
Hungary attracts almost 10.2 million tourists every year, the country where the Rubix Cube was invented, is it any wonder it’s such a desirable holiday location? Budapest is thought to be one of the cheapest capital cities in Europe, a sure way to attract visitors. Indulge in the many delicious cakes, try some of their strong liquor or relax to the utmost at the famous thermal spas. You can get a three course meal for £7.50 and train tickets for £1, you couldn’t find better value for money!
The Black Sea Coast in Bulgaria has been a tourist hot-spot for many years, probably because it is a bargain compared to holiday resorts in the likes of Spain, Portugal etc. If you’re more interested in a city break, the city of Sofia lies in a peninsula, it’s beautiful and definitely worth the visit! This cheap spot has prices ranging from a meal at a resaurant for £4.50 and bus tickets £0.50 – you wouldn’t see prices that low in a lot of places!
3. Costa Rica
The Republic of Costa Rica, in Central America, is fast becoming a popular destination for people when holidaying. If you’re interested in never-ending activities, gorgeous beaches, a plethora of wildlife, food, and nice people, then this may be the ideal place to spend your next vacation. Living on £25 a day is not hard in this part of the world, and though it may be considered expensive relative to geographic location, it remains one of the cheapest holiday destinations with the scenery and wildlife (among others) certainly making for a memorable trip.
Argentina is one of the most popular destinations in the South American region, being regularly referred to as the most Cosmopolitan and European city of them all. There is plenty to do and see, for example the cafe culture of Buenos Aires or the natural beauty of the Iguazu Waterfalls, something to interest people of all ages and nationalities. Food and transportation costs are so low it makes Argentina even more appealing!
Greece is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, with over sixty inhabited islands. Between the historic sites, idyllic beaches and towering mountain ranges there is a wide variety of tourist attractions in Greece to explore. The current economic crisis means that prices are reducing day by day, and Greece as a travel destination is as popular as it has ever been.
What do you think of these 5 fabulous holiday destinations? We cant think of anything better to accompany a free home exchange with HomeExchange than next to nothing prices on food and transport – and not to mention the once in a lifetime cultural experiences! We hope you like our selection, and that we have encouraged you to venture to these parts of the world in the near future, as HomeExchange has members’ homes in each of the listed countries and many many more.
