When was the last time you took a vacation? I mean, not just a weekend getaway, but a real adventure in a foreign country? Everyone needs to get away some time, but travelling can be expensive if you don’t know where to find good deals. The truth is, international travel is within your reach but you have to choose the right destination if you want to make sure you have a good experience and don’t end up going broke.
In the US we’re fortunate to have one of the highest valued currencies in the world, and this makes foreign travel much more affordable than it is for people living in developing countries. Indeed, you’d be remiss to not take advantage of that and explore the world beyond your borders. If you feel like you’re due for a trip, its time you took advantage of those vacation days you’ve been saving up and hop on a plane.
So what countries are the cheapest and most interesting ones to travel to in 2016? Many countries might be inexpensive compared to the US, but not all of them might be good travel destinations. Everyone has their own idea of what makes a great vacationing spot, and everyone has their own ideas for what they would like to see and do on vacation, so in this list we tried to give you a good variety of budget destinations. Here they are in no particular order.
4 The Philippines
The second most populated country in the world is also one of the most culturally rich. You’ll probably want to see the Taj Mahal since it’s one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, and if you’re interested in religion and spirituality India is one of the best countries to travel to. Visit the River Ganges to observe the daily ritual cleansing and you’ll see how important the river is to the Hindu faith. And of course there’s the famous Diwali Festival! It’s something that everyone should experience at least once in their lives. Mumbai is one of the great cities of the world, but the dense crowds and noise can be a little overwhelming. That’s when you can move out into the smaller cities and rural areas where things get incredibly cheap, and the people are incredibly kind. You can live like a Raj for surprisingly little money when travelling through India. You can find rooms for less than $10US a night, and bus and train tickets usually run you less than $10US as well. With so much culture and history, and such welcoming people, India provides a lot of bang for your buck.
