The journey through the most affordable countries
Let’s start off our journey on a country close to the US. Mexico is, surprise, surprise, quite cheap. You can easily get a taco for under 50 cents and beer for a dollar. Add to that the fact that buying things in your local store is even cheaper than buying them on the street, and you’ll get a good idea of how cheap Mexico actually is. But, that doesn’t mean that it is not beautiful. Far from so. There are some truly gorgeous sights to be seen and experienced in Mexico. From gorgeous sights of nature too beautiful cultural manifestations. Our advice is to plan your journey carefully so that you can afford and manage to see everything that Mexico has to offer.
Mexico is one of the most affordable countries people seem to love visiting.
After leaving Mexico you can simply hop on a boat and head on to Cuba. The prices there? Pretty much the same, if not even cheaper. Culture? Almost completely different. If you think that you can guess what Cuba will be like based on your experience in Mexico, you’ll be sorely mistaken. If you are an US citizen, you might have a hard time getting in, as there are some legal limitations. But, if you start on time and follow the correct procedure, you will be able to visit it in no time. And, what a visit it will be. From delicious $5 – 10 meals to $2 cocktails at the bar. Not to mention the fact that you’ll be able to smoke authentic Cuban cigars and listen to some authentic Cuban music.
Let’s now head over to Europe. Now, the biggest mistake people make when visiting Europe is focusing on expensive, popular cities and countries. They visit Paris, head over to Belgium and maybe visit Germany and England if they have the time. Well, we are here to tell you that Europe has a lot more to offer to those who look. Serbia, for instance, is one of the hidden gems of Europe. There you will find, beautiful women, rich history, welcoming people and cheap food and alcohol. Therefore, it is no surprise that the capital of Serbia, Belgrade, has been crowned as one of the best places to party in Europe.
Belgrade is gorgeous but remember. There is more to every country then its capital has to offer.
Our advice is that you find a guide. Serbia is not used to a lot of foreigners which is why you will have a hard time exploring it if you do not know the language and the culture. So, do a bit of research before you come, and get a guide.
After Serbia, we advise you to keep going south. After a 10 hour journey by bus, you are going to stumble into Greece. Now, there is a lot we can say about the cradle of western society. But, we are going to try to sum it up. Greece, for starters, has a beautiful seaside. There are numerous islands and coastlines to discover that will take you back with their beauty and splendor. The cost of staying there? Around $20 a night. Once you visit it and smell the sea and taste fresh fish, we wouldn’t be surprised if you start figuring out how to move there for good.
But, if you decide that you want to keep on with your journey, we suggest that you start leaving Europe and head on to Turkey. There is no better place in the world to explore Muslim customs and culture then Turkey. It is by far one of the most liberal Muslim countries, and also one of the cheapest. Here you will be able to witness a lot of early history and find out about how the Ottoman empire shaped today’s world. Not to mention that you will visit Istanbul, one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
There are few cities in the world that can compare to the beauty of Istanbul.
But, we advise you to study Turskish customs and culture before you move here. Even though they are liberal, there are some major differences between western countries and the eastern ones. And, if you want to avoid uncomfortable situations at best, and jail at worst, you better read up on their culture and laws.
Next on our list of beautiful jet affordable countries, is India. Most people don’t realize that there is more written history of India than the whole of Europe combined. This means that if you were to try to discover the whole of India, you would need multiple lifetimes. But, this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t visit. For a small amount of money, you can try delicious Indian food, discover events that will grant you the best time of your life, see how the people of India live and learn from their culture. Not to mention the exotic animals and the beautiful sights on nature. There are some truly profound and beautiful things to be experienced in India, but you need to do your research and plan your trip to India carefully. Remember, people here have a lot of history behind them. And, if you are not familiar with it, you will not understand India.
