The recession has everyone in a rut. If you are lucky enough to still be able to vacation, consider yourself lucky. There aren’t many people like you. With that said lets get to business. Listed below are several destinations that won’t break your bank and have you yearning for more. Who says travel always needs to be high-end and luxurious? What ever happened to the adventure?
Bangladesh is probably one of the cheapest places to vacation in the world right now. There are few places you can get a hot meal for 1$, and even fewer places where you can rent a room at a nice hotel for 10 times that. Tiger watching, surfing, trekking, and mountain hiking are just a few activities you can on the cheap. If that doesn’t satisfy you, rent a paddle boat and explore. I promise, Bangladesh will not leave you disappointed.
A lot of places tend to start inflating their prices once tourist pour in. Nicaragua is free from all of that, thank God. A measly 15$ a day can get you by with good food, fun activities, and some memory making experiences. Just make a quick search on Google and look how beautiful their country is!
If you already live in the states why not vacation in the country? Keeping it local helps the economy and you learn a little bit of history too. Washington is a state that is jam-packed with American culture, history, and memorials. Not to mention that most of these places don’t charge a fee to get in! Did you read that correctly? Free!
Paris will never be a budget-friendly vacation destination. However you can get plenty of local food, shows, and entertainment on the cheap. You just have to look. A Google search will reveal so much to. There are many small businesses that welcome tourist and explorers. They want your money and they are willing to slash their prices to get it!
The Philippines are known for many things, but only one really stands out. Exotic beaches with blue water and beautiful people who are friendly and receptive. The Philippines never really recovered from the Asian economy crash so most things are cheap. Street vendors sell great, hot food for a buck or less. If you’re willing to take out 3 dollars you can get an excellent course of meals at any local restaurant.
Wherever you are and whoever you are don’t let the recession stop your vacations. Take advantage of these small countries and their weak, over-inflated currencies. You’ll have an enjoyable time and at the same time you are helping some one else make a living.
