If you’re looking for the very best and cheapest places to travel and explore while you are young, look no further. These locations from all over the world are fantastic for 20-somethings to see without breaking the bank. It has never been so simple to travel on a budget!
- Ko Phi Phi, Thailand
Thailand is an immensely popular tourist destination for young travelers. The cost of flights and lodging make the most luxurious vacation just as expensive as the price of living in a big city. And as soon as you land you can do a little island hopping while in Thailand, but you may need your final destination to be Ko Phi Phi.
Rather than dealing with the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, it is possible to go to the Phi Phi Islands and enjoy white sand beaches and crystal-clear water. A combination of lush greenery and mountainous terrain makes this place a unique blend of beautiful you could enjoy. Not a bad deal for one of the least expensive places to travel.
2. Caye Caulker, Belize
The Belize Barrier Reef is filled with rich wildlife and a sea holding excellent diving points to make the most of the small island community.
Taking advantage of this remarkable city is easy as high-class resorts run in the tens of dollars, seldom breaking two amounts. It doesn’t get much better than this if you will need to travel on a budget. For young people, there are tons of opportunities for studying and interacting.
3. Cusco, Peru
The former capital of the Inca Empire retains impressive ancient ruins, unlike anything you may see on the rest of Earth. Along with the ancient city ruins there are several remains from the Spanish settlements which were formed when the area was defeated
It’s a place that everyone should see, and due to its affordability and availability, it’s the best location for young people to go to. You’re going to want to see this extreme landscape while your body is strong enough to hike the trails you can’t access by car.
4. Cobán, Guatemala
This Guatemalan town is a nature lover’s dream destination. Experience the natural waterfalls and caves tucked one of the lushness of this gorgeous area of the planet. It’s ideal for young people and especially people who are attempting to save money. Las Victoria’s National Park is a hiker’s paradise providing several hours of hiking through the wooded expanse of paths.
One of the few problems that travelers face in Guatemala is the distance from one site to another, but in the event of Cobán, you’re in a place that could keep you exploring eternally. Spending time in nature, you’ll wind up getting an incredible set of memories for a remarkably low cost.
- Budapest, Hungary
If you’re already in Europe, Budapest is a favorite destination, but it’s often overlooked by those not familiar with the region. I was amazed when I planned my trip to hear from many of my worldly friends that it was their favorite city and also among the cheapest places to travel (although it’s technically two cities, Buda and Pest). And after seeing it, I understand why.
Hotels and daily expenses are somewhat inexpensive, and recent construction booms have created “resorts” that use empty flats, providing travelers affordable access to high scale accommodations. The town feels young and full of life as it’s extremely easy to travel to on a budget. The city is very walk able, and public transport is cheap and dependable.
