Travelling teaches one a lot. Especially when you chose to travel on a budget. It gives you the confidence of seeing beautiful places knowing that you’d not live in the luxuries of swanky hotels. It lets you explore with an open mind and teaches you to talk to strangers. Before you wanderlust luxury tours, you must travel on a budget to let yourself understand the beauty of the unknown and the un-wandered.



This country has been recently strewn with various affordable hotels like the boutique Clover Hotel whose charges start from $133 and Plot Hotels in pod-style. It is easier now for every person on a tight budget to explore the attractions near Gardens by the Bay and indulge in the much talked-about street food.



The metropolis in Canada has quite inexpensive diversions to offer the tourists, such as the St. Lawrence Market’s food stalls and Chinatown shops. In addition to these there are several reasonably priced attractions like the Toronto Symphony Orchestra (entry fee starts from $33) and Ripley’s Aquarium (entry fee starts from $30).

Krakow, Poland

Here is a location that was recently designated by UNESCO as the City of Literature; where four-star hotels cost as less as $110 per night and apartments with all services cost about $64 a night. Apart from the cultural events in Krakow, the historical architecture of the Old Town is charming.

Mexico City

Head towards the inner city for enjoying the coffee farms and rain forests in case you are tired of the Miraflores Locks in the canal.

Avarua District, Cook Islands

The beaches here have white sand and the district is a tourist attraction primarily because of the very little commercial development and the hospitality offered by the English-speaking residents. Non-stop flights to this South Pacific location are available in as less as $894 for a round trip, from Los Angeles, that is offered by Air New Zealand. The prices offered in this case are much lesser than the flights for Tahiti or Fiji. The prices for basic lodgings in the island depends on the choice you make since there are options in Vara’s Beach House for $17 a night, and also $229 for a night in the Magic Reef Bungalows.
