Travel Cheap And Travel Young: 10 Countries You Can Visit On A College Budget

With the travel season upon us, it’s time to begin exploring again and creating memories that last.

Like everyone else, I’m pretty much broke and can’t afford to go on a luxury trip across Europe, but just because the university takes all my cash doesn’t mean I can’t still travel.

Here is a list of 10 countries that rank on the low-end for cost right now:

Bolivia

Home to many activities and sites, this cheap country will have you living like a king for less than you would think. You can get a nice place to stay, food, transportation and even alcohol for less than 20 USD per day.


Thailand

Thailand has been trying to revamp its tourism as of late and many tourism companies have been offering excellent deals. I’m a huge advocate of hostels, but if that isn’t your thing, you can get a private room with a bathroom for less than 30 USD per night.

If you are open to bunks, you can easily get by for an entire day on that price.


Greece

With the state of the economic condition in Greece, prices are low and the tourism will help bring in some more much-needed money. The country is mind-numbingly beautiful and features amazing coasts and architecture.

This is one of the best locations in all of Europe for cheap travel.


Spain

Spain is having similar issues to Greece and could use the extra money from tourism.

The country has a lot to offer, as well, with awesome food, a rich history displayed through museums and architecture and great scenic sites like the Picos de Europa mountain ranges.


Costa Rica

At a few hundred dollars, Costa Rica has one of the cheapest airfare costs when traveling from the United States, and the prices within the country aren’t bad, either.

The Costa Rican Colón has fallen lower than the USD recently, making it an even better deal. Besides, it’s an absolutely beautiful country.


Vietnam

You can travel in Vietnam for less than 20 USD per day and may even struggle to spend that much. The country’s dollar, known as the Dong, is at a ratio of 1 USD to 21,190 Dongs.

Even with the rise in tourism in recent years, the country still remains very cheap and that isn’t going to change away anytime soon.


Romania

Eastern Europe is very cheap right now. You can get a hostel for less than 10 USD per night and will only have to spend a few dollars per meal, including beer.

The prices in Romania have risen as of late, but you can still find great deals and even better street food. I’ll actually be backpacking in Romania next summer on a college budget!


Sri Lanka

The small country in the northern Indian Ocean is home to botanical gardens, temples and tea, making Sri Lanka a steal.

This is the most expensive country on the list, but you still only have to budget 60 USD per day and you will easily be able to afford all the basics that you need while traveling.


Nepal

A tropical country with great food and a rich history, Nepal is paradise for backpackers. It’s the perfect escape from the craziness of your day-to-day lifestyle, as you relax in the countryside.

You shouldn’t expect to pay more than 20 or 25 USD a day.


Argentina

If you want to relax or party, you can find both here. Buenos Aires is well known for its vibrant nightlife or you can visit Iguazu Falls for a relaxing hike.

You can stay in hostels, bus around and eat for not much money at all.

What countries have you been to that you found to be really cheap?

  1. Argentina is not cheap. There is an inflation and about the same price as here or more. Colombia and Peru are much cheaper and top tourist destinations now in South America
