The following are 3 of the cheapest places to travel in the world

1. Costa Rica is one of the most popular places to travel to in South America. It’s no wonder when you consider the striking landscapes, magnificent sandy beaches, and local cuisine. Costa Rica is definatelty one of those places where a person can get away from it all, and really enjoy life, if only for a little while.

The people are warm and friendly, the country is rich with traditional culture and cuisine, and your money goes a lot farther than it would in many other places around the world.

2. Vietnam is still finding itself, if you will, with regard to what it has to offer those who travel there. In spite of its long history, much of the country was destroyed during the Vietnam War. Even so, many historical sites remain. There are many religious sites and fortresses that have retained much of their original beauty. There’s a lot of shopping to be had in Vietnam also. Arts and antiques, clothing, footwear, assersories, and gems and other jewelry await those who travel there. The food is world-famous with its unique spice blends and diverse cooking methods and the people of Vietnam are some of the friendliest anywhere in the world. All this for only a fraction of the price you would spend in other countries.

3. If there were one place in the world where people expect to get the least and wind up getting the most, it’s Cambodia. A room can go for as little as two dollars a night, and you can eat for about twenty dollars a day. There are many pubs and bars and nightclubs for entertainment as well as cinemas, movie houses and traditional live dance performances right in the streets. Overall, Cambodia is cheap, friendly and safe.
