15 Cheapest Countries to Visit in 2023

As we all know, the cheaper the destination, the longer you can stay. In short, it enhances your travel lifestyle during your stay. The cheapest countries on this list offer both affordability and value for money.

In some countries, it’s hard to get a dorm bed in a hostel for $45 a night, while in others you can afford to buy a luxury villa. For example, in Canggu, Bali, for $50 a night, he can get a villa with a two-bedroom private pool, but for the same, he visits Japan for $50, and a double bed on the floor in a small room may be placed.

Choosing a more affordable destination will allow you to enjoy long trips and ultimately immerse yourself in more cultures and have more meaningful experiences. If you’re planning a trip this year, this post on cheap travel destinations is for you.  

Cheapest Countries to Visit

Some of these destinations are more affordable than ever, largely due to the depreciation of local currencies on global markets and the recent lack of tourists.

I would never write a post to indulge in low prices at the expense of economic struggles, but by visiting these places individually now, you can not only enjoy a better price for yourself, but you can also find locals along the way. You can help businesses and people. 

1. Indonesia

With white sandy beaches, world-class surfing, some of the best scuba diving in the world, and some of the most scenic jungle and rice paddy landscapes, Indonesia is without a doubt one of our favorite countries on earth and one of the lowest It is also a budget travel destination.

3 months in Canggu, Bali, 2 months backpacking the archipelago, 1-week diving in remote areas, 1 week in Lombok and Gili Trawangan, lesser-visited places like Ganga, Raja Ampat, Candidasa were explored for three weeks.

Indonesia is currently one of the cheapest travel countries we know. These days, you can get around 15,000 rupiah for $1. This is about 1,500 rupiah more than last year.

As mentioned in the first paragraph of this post, Indonesia is very cost-effective for accommodation, food, and transportation. Your budget here depends on the islands you visit. The more popular islands of Bali and the remote areas of Raja Ampat cost more than places like Sumatra.

Wherever you stay in Indonesia, you can easily get a room in a nice guest house, often in a pool villa, for just $30 a night. Check out this list for guesthouses, hotels, and villas under $50 a night.

Delicious seafood and millennial specialties like “Smashed Avo on Toast” cost about $3, and you can rent a motorbike for just a few dollars a day (a car is about $15 a day).

The only thing of little value is alcohol. Indonesia imposes fairly high taxes on imported alcohol, so imported wines of lesser quality cost around US$20, while easy-drinking local wines are still US $13-15.

Bintang beer isn’t fancy, but beach he can be purchased in bars and restaurants for around $1.50 to $3, with imported beers costing about double that.

Of all the countries we have traveled to and have budgets in mind, Indonesia is definitely in the top three for the best value for money.

Don’t miss the Raja Ampat Islands, Bali, Sumatra, Sumbawa, Lombok, Gili, Flores, Komodo National Park, Arrow Island and more.

There are endless things to do and many tours in Indonesia. Check out these top activities and tours at affordable prices.

2. Mexico (one of the cheapest countries to visit for North Americans)

Diverse and delicious cuisine, friendly locals, world-class beaches, all the amenities you could ask for, and an intoxicating atmosphere make Mexico a place we want to visit again and again.

It’s one of our favorite travel destinations and one of the few destinations where we can imagine our long-term lives. There are so many amazing places to visit and things to do in Mexico that you can’t see them all even after spending years here.

For Canadians and Americans, getting there is very affordable, with many entry points and airlines.

Mexico is affordable and can be cheaper than in your home country, but these days it’s getting harder to live on a super low budget. With the boom in remote work, many Canadians, Americans, and Europeans have moved south to Mexico. So they brought in a strong currency and a bigger budget.

Also, due to high demand, accommodation costs are rising. Also, at the time of writing, the US dollar stands at just 18 Mexican pesos, lower than usual. Click here to check the cost of hotels, guest houses, and apartments in Mexico. We have been to Mexico many times. When I traveled here in 2014, a dollar was only 12.8 pesos, but in 2020 it was 25 pesos per dollar. Either way, Mexico still offers excellent value for money, especially if you get off the main tourist/digital nomad trails!

If you really want to save money on your visit to Mexico, come during the high season (November to March) when accommodation prices skyrocket (especially December) and many of the best places can be booked. Please avoid this.

To save money, opt for less-visited regions like Queretaro, Chiapas, Mazatlan, Puebla, Zihuatanejo, Oaxaca, and Guanajuato rather than the bustling Yucatán Peninsula and Riviera Nayarit.

No matter when you travel here, Mexico will amaze you with the value of food, drink, and transportation. Tacos are about 50 cents each, a kilo of fresh fish market shrimp is $5, coronas with lime wedges are $1.50, and thick margaritas served in the sand are just $1 each.

You can find cheap domestic flights with Viva Aerobus and Aeromexico and cheap long-distance bus travel with Addo.

In addition to affordable food and alcohol purchases from restaurants and bars, Mexico is home to many North American favorites such as Sam’s Club, Costco, and Walmart in big cities.

Mexico also has its own branded grocery stores such as La Comer, Mega, and Soriana. Grocery stores are very cheap here, so buying your own groceries and cooking your own meals is a great way to save money (and prepare healthy meals). 

3. India

India is one of the most exciting travel destinations in the world and if you are looking for a cheap country to visit, look no further than India.

Chaotic and calm. pristine and dirty. Friendly and annoyed. India is the epitome of contradictory experiences that make travel great. India is probably the most exciting and confusing place to travel to, but it’s also probably the cheapest country in the world to travel to.

Thanks to the Indian Rupee currently trading at around 80 rupees per dollar (which is 7 rupees more per dollar than last year), India is probably the best travel destination if you’re looking to stretch your budget.

The last time I was in India, I bought the cheapest (but filling) meal I had on my trip. For just 20 cents, I bought a purisu (fluffy fried bread) served by the tram and two types of curry. The food was delicious and filled me up completely. The cost of this meal was very low, but we had an all-you-can-eat thali for just $1.50 and a glass of freshly squeezed lime juice for 15 cents.

We had free accommodation in the ashram (not that cheap). When I paid for the hotel, I got a decent and basic double room for about $5 a night. For $20 a night, you can get a very nice place to stay.

Depending on which class of train and bus you take, a train from Mumbai to Kolkata is 1,968 km, takes 30 hours, and costs around US$10, making it possible to get around India on a budget.

In my opinion, India is one of the best countries to visit in terms of experience and cuisine and one of the cheapest countries is also one. Check out the best guesthouses, hotels, and apartments in India here. There are endless things to do in India. Don’t miss out on these affordable and highly-rated experiences.

4. Colombia

We backpacked through Colombia a few years ago and it quickly became one of our favorite countries we’ve been to. With friendly people, incredibly pristine lush jungles, stunning Spanish colonial cities, and stunning beaches, Colombia is every traveler’s dream.

The Colombian peso has fallen significantly in recent years, which unfortunately doesn’t bode well for the local economy or traveling Colombians, but it does give budget travelers an extra incentive to visit this incredible country. increase.

At the time of writing, the Colombian peso is about 4,600 pesos to the US dollar, 1,000 more than he did last year.

This means all of Colombia is a great value for travelers. Whether you travel with dollars, pounds, euros, yen, or renminbi, Colombia is better than ever.

We ate delicious seafood on the beach for just a few dollars. A beautiful Spanish guest house costs about $30 a night for her, and if you buy a 10-dive package, you can dive in the Caribbean for about $24 per dive. Traveling in Colombia offers excellent value for money.

I’ve stayed in some of the best hostels I’ve seen in Colombia, with rooftop pools, funky bars, and gorgeous rooms (one even had a jacuzzi). Costs for tours and experiences are also excellent in Colombia. Highly recommend the 4-day Ciudad Perdida Hike and Coffee Tour in Salento (the latter for only $2). Don’t miss the beautiful cities of Cartagena and its offshore islands, Medellin and Bogota, San Gil, and Barichara (to name a few).

Colombia is one of her cheapest travel destinations this year and offers excellent value for money. Please click here for accommodation fees. Check out these affordable and highly-rated tours.

5. Cuba

If you are looking for cheap travel destinations in the Caribbean, Cuba is at the top of the list!

You can travel here on an all-inclusive basis, but if you decide to travel independently to Cuba, you’ll have a much richer experience and pay less. For countries with low prices, Cuba is one of your best bets.

With beautiful beaches, a unique Caribbean and Spanish atmosphere, delicious food (unbelievable), friendly people, and incredible landscapes, Cuba is a diverse country that should be on your list. country.

Americans can travel to Cuba if they are traveling in one of the permitted categories. Supporting the Cuban people is what most people travel for. But for our friends in the US, it’s still a confusing process.

You must create an itinerary that includes activities that meet the criteria for the Assistance to the Cuban People category.

We spent a month in Cuba as backpackers and this was the highlight of our entire travel experience. Meeting Cubans, dancing in the streets, lounging on almost empty beaches, partying in Havana, and hiking to tobacco farms were some of our most memorable moments.

Cuba has two currencies. CUC and CUP.

I usually use CUC (which is bound to 1:
Accommodation, meals in tourist restaurants, cocktails, and beers, activities, and excursions, car and scooter rentals, and Viazul buses are charged at US$1.

CUP is used for small items such as fruits and vegetables from local vendors, local buses, and some peso grocery stores.

1 USD = 1 CUC

1 USD = 25 CUP

Staying with a local family at a Casa Spetineres (guest house) is the best part of Cuba. This is the best way to meet people and enjoy authentic experiences.

Casas are $20-$30 a night for 2 people, discounts for 1 person (often with breakfast), and hotels are $25-$180 a night for him. Find homes and hotels on Booking.com.

The cost of eating out at a Cuban restaurant really depends on which city you’re in and which restaurant you’re in. But generally, you’ll need to spend between $5 and $10 for a full meal.

I recommend eating at your casa at least one night as they prepare great traditional food! Cocktails cost about $2 to $3 at the bar. If you eat “peso food,” you’ll spend about $1 on a small meal. Things to do can be considerably cheaper in Cuba too, as it doesn’t cost much to lounge on the beach or stroll the stunning, busy streets.

Museum visits, caving, horseback riding, and other tours range from $5 to $30. Travel costs in Cuba are incredibly fair, making it one of the cheapest travel destinations. 

6. Bulgaria

Bulgaria is one of the cheapest countries we have been to in Europe and is actually where we live now. With beautiful old towns, phenomenal wines, beautiful coastlines, and very friendly and laid-back people, Bulgaria is also one of our favorites in the region.

The country has provided great value to travelers for decades, but as is now the case in many places around the world (especially in Europe), prices for accommodation, transport and food All have gone up in the last year or so.

Currently 1 USD = 1.80 LEV.

When we visited Bulgaria in 2016, we were blown away by the incredible value we got for our dollars. I have sat in a restaurant bar for over 5 hours. We ate platters of meat, vegetables, and bread and drank copious amounts of wine.

When the bill was finally brought to us we thought it was either a mistake or we had double vision and misread it. We paid her less than $30 on the bill that night and I still don’t understand how it was so affordable.

When we traveled all over Bulgaria, a room in a beautiful hostel in a 200-year-old building cost him only $20 a night, and a bottle of wine in a restaurant rarely cost him less than $10. . Food and lodging costs have certainly increased in recent years, but traditional local cuisine remains affordable.

If you want to visit Europe, experience history, meet some really cool people, and taste some of the best wines in the world without breaking the bank, Bulgaria should be on your travel wish list this year.

Bulgaria is still one of Europe’s cheapest countries and is still the top travel destination this year. Click here to check hotel and apartment rates and see these top tours.

7. South Africa

One of the most adventurous and nature-rich countries on the planet, this list wouldn’t be complete without our favorite African country (so far). South Africa has much more to offer the visitor than she has seen in her less than six months of travel.

With a rugged and stunning coastline, incredible wildlife, super-friendly people, delicious Indian-Afro fusion cuisine, solid amenities, and affordable prices, SA really can’t be beaten.

We believe that this country, located at the southern tip of the continent, will be the perfect stepping stone for newcomers to the chaotic and adventurous journeys of other countries in the region. can be moved relatively easily. (Highly recommended! Check out Discover Cars for great deals).

One of the reasons South Africa is budget-friendly this year is its currency. Last year’s conversion was 1 USD = 14.6 Rand. It has risen by 3 rands this year and is now worth around 17.6 rands per dollar.

The last time I was there 12 years ago it was 6.7 rand to the dollar, but everything was great value. We spent $40 a night for a nice double room (called “backpackers”), about $7 for food, and only $10 for admission to some great national parks.

These days, he can find hotels and accommodations starting at $20 a night. Click here to search for cheap accommodation. South Africa’s budget can be as high or as low as you wish.

Taking into account current discounts due to currency devaluation, all of this will be incredibly affordable in 2023, even taking into account inflation. South Africa’s unstable political climate (and corruption here and there) has left the currency still weak, making it one of the cheaper destinations. To save even more money in South Africa, consider renting accommodation with a self-catering kitchen. Grocery stores such as Pick n’ Pay and Spar are found in all major cities. We actually took a cooler (Esky/Cooler) so we could have a picnic on the road trip.

Invite your friends, split the cost of your rental car, stay in a delightful guest house and enjoy all the adventurous activities South Africa has to offer. Here are some top activities to plan your trip.
Lion’s Head Sunset Hike, Garden Route, Addo National Park, and this Zipline Canopy Tour.  

8. Turkey

While the region recovers from the devastating earthquake that struck Syria and southeastern Turkey around Gaziantep earlier this year, the rest of the country is still open and safe for tourism.

Perhaps the most liberal country in the region, Turkey lures tourists to one of the world’s most exciting and beautiful cities, Istanbul.

Additionally, the country offers a wonderfully charming Mediterranean coast, incredibly friendly people (especially in the East), and fascinating Islamic culture and architecture.

Turkey’s value for money has always been great if you’re looking for a cheap travel destination, but the current economic crisis in Turkey makes everything cheaper for travelers.

The lira continues to plummet and unfortunately, the Turkish economy is struggling. At the time of writing, 1 US dollar is roughly equivalent to 20 Turkish lira. Compare to last year when the lira was about 14 yen per dollar.

Every time I visit Turkey, I am amazed at the value for money here. A delicious traditional Turkish meal for $7. Portions here are often so large that you can share a meal and pay for it. You can buy good kebabs on the street for a few bucks, and you can get a nice room here for under $20 a night (more expensive in big cities). Check out hotels and guesthouses in Istanbul for under $50 a night.

One of the more expensive things to do in Turkey is a hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia, but it’s worth it. Other exciting excursions such as white water rafting in Antalya and cruises on the Bosphorus are very affordable.

If you’re on a tight budget, you can visit Istanbul’s Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque for free. You can also join a free walking tour of the city. Turkey offers excellent value for money and visiting now, taking local tours, staying in local accommodations, and eating in small family restaurants will help locals during this financial crisis. is directly helping 

9. Thailand

You should add the Land of Smiles to your list of cheap travel destinations for 2023. Thailand has always been one of our favorite countries in the world and still the low-budget backpackers who live deep in our souls make us happy every time we come back.

There are many places to visit in Thailand. Whether you’re looking for national parks, jungles, cities, or islands, Thailand has a place for you.

The Thai baht has fallen and surged, but it’s not particularly cheaper than it has been in recent years, but that doesn’t matter. Thailand offers the best value for money you can find. However, prices in Thailand appear to have risen slightly following the boom in remote work and the fact that tourism has been effectively shut down for almost two years. It’s still more affordable than in countries like the US and Canada.

You can find nice guesthouses and beach shacks for $15 to $20 a night, spicy and delicious Thai food for under $2 a plate, and scuba diving for under $20 a dive. All of these things make Thailand one of the cheapest travel destinations in the world, and he constantly vies.

On our first visit in 2008, we were pleasantly surprised to find a cheap (albeit very basic) room for less than $10, and on our return in 2017 on a high budget we booked a luxury two-bedroom private I couldn’t believe I got a pool villa for a fraction of the price. $1,500 per month ($50 per night). Check out Bangkok accommodation from $10 to $50 per night. For tours, you can also find great deals in Thailand. Don’t miss Chiang Rai’s White Temples, a boat trip to Maya Bay and Bamboo Island, and a trip to Bangkok’s floating and railway markets.

Your biggest expense when traveling to Thailand (depending on where you’re from) may be your airfare, but once you’re there, enjoy the incredibly low cost of living and the warmth of the locals who have made this place famous. can do. 

10. Greece

If this list were to be the most scenic and most worthwhile, Greece would definitely be at the top. What a surprise to have such a beautiful place in the middle of the Mediterranean at such an affordable price.

Athens Airport is one such central hub that offers many great flights to many other countries. Greece is one of the cheapest places to travel from the US and actually one of the cheapest places to fly from most places in the world. Once you arrive in Greece, you can travel by renting a car. Greece introduced the euro in early 2002, so while the euro has fallen in recent years, Greece has always been considered a cheap destination in Europe, but perhaps not as much as it does today.

With such great value, Greece is the perfect place for 2023.

During my years of traveling around Greece, I rented a beautiful modern 50sqm studio apartment with sea views on Zakynthos for under $20 a night. Also, his one-bedroom two-story apartment with a pool near Santorini’s south coast was less than $20 a night for him.

Take a look at some of the best accommodation options in Greece here. Greek food is incredibly delicious, and restaurants usually offer delicious seafood dishes for under $8. In addition to the already high prices, Greek restaurant owners and chefs are in the habit of offering their guests complimentary wine, appetizers, desserts, and more.

Leaving a traditional Greek restaurant leaves you feeling full and satisfied without breaking the bank.

In addition to great food and lodging value, things to do in Greece are generally affordable. We did a freebee tour, an olive oil tour and tasting, a $24 half-day bike tour, an amazing cooking class with unlimited alcohol and food for $65, and a winery visit and tasting for under $5. We also rented our own boat in Corfu and drove from bay to bay for a full day. This cost us $95 plus gas, which isn’t very “cheap”, but considering Sea-Doos and jet skis are usually rented for about $50 an hour, this was a bargain. I thought it was a great deal for the two of us to enjoy plenty of water. water day.

Overall, Greece is arguably one of the cheapest European countries to visit and offers the best value on the entire continent. This is especially true when traveling in the low season.

Considering its location on the map and the level of quality found here, she also competes as one of the world’s most valuable travel destinations. 

11. Argentina

Whether you’re into culture and history, nature and landscapes, lakes and fishing, cities and wine, Argentina has something for you… As of 2023, Argentina is the cheapest to visit One of the countries.

Affordable Things to Do in Argentina

Argentina is a very large country with a wide variety of landscapes and regions that can be visited all year round.

Argentina is known as one of the world’s premier fly-fishing destinations. If you are an angler, the best flies in Patagonia’s Lake District around Bariloche. His fishing season is his January and his February. This is due to the mild climate and opportunities to fish in all waters at this time of year.

For hikers, winter is a great time to explore the Patagonian mountains. In the south, El Chalten is dry with temperatures around 68°F (20°C), perfect for hiking the peaks of Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre, exploring waterfalls, and sipping beer on terraces.

Don’t miss nearby El Calafate and the popular Perito Moreno Glacier, which separates giant blocks of ice every few minutes.

Currency of Argentina in 2023

If all of these Argentinian attractions aren’t enough to pique your interest, they’re probably costly. When I first traveled to Argentina in 2017, it was about 18 pesos for US$1. The exchange rate in January 2021 was 85 pesos to US$1. When we returned to Argentina in 2022, the Argentine Peso had fallen significantly and the economy was (and still is) struggling.

The current official exchange rates are: 1 US dollar = 211 pesos

But here in Argentina, we have a “blue dollar”. Bring US dollars (cash) and exchange them at Cuaba or a money changer (such as Pago Facil) for around 390 pesos per US dollar.

Let’s take this one step further. Sending money to yourself via Western Union and picking up peso cash at a WU location will give you about 405 pesos for every dollar.

This is the current money economy. If you pay by credit card, you are effectively paying the official rate double that. ATMs allow you to pay exorbitant fees and receive cash at a fair rate.

Overwhelmed. Based on our experience in Argentina during the economic crisis, the country is by far one of the cheapest destinations to travel to.

Argentina is one of the cheapest countries to visit in 2023. With tourism closed for much of 2020 and 2021 and inflation soaring, Argentina’s people and economy are struggling. You can help Argentines get back on their feet by visiting now and spending foreign currency on local businesses.

Argentina is generally not known as one of the cheapest countries to travel to, but given the current peso volatility, traveling here now can definitely save you money.

This little-known country in the Balkans has become something of a hotspot for digital nomads in recent years. Although most nationalities can stay in Albania for 90 days, American citizens are prohibited from entering Albania. can stay for up to one year. A digital nomad visa or residence permit does not require you to stay that long. Automatically he can stay for one year.

Albania is directly across the Adriatic Sea from Italy’s Puglia region and borders Greece to the south but costs half as much here.

Food is a great value in Albania, and his three-course meal in a trendy restaurant in Tirana costs around US$20. A bottle of wine is about $10, and beer is $1.50 to $3 a pint.

When I first visited Albania in 2016, it felt like the Wild West. On our expedition, the lack of GPS, poor infrastructure, and bad roads made it quite an adventure.

Albanian roundabouts are still a nightmare to navigate, and the mountain roads and hairpin turns can be a bit precarious, but Google Maps works here these days, and driving between Albanian cities is very easy. it’s simple. If you’re a confident driver, check out our car rental options here. Albania has so many amazing places to visit, so take your time. Your budget will stretch far here.

13. Georgia

Another underrated country in Europe that allows extended stays! Georgia is a transcontinental country in the Caucasus region, full of natural beauty and interesting cities. Most nationalities can enter the country without a visa and stay for up to one year. This makes Tbilisi a popular destination for telecommuters.

Currently, 1 USD can get you 2.55 Georgian Lari (GEL), which is quite valuable in Georgia. The country is very budget-friendly as the cost of accommodation, food, wine, and excursions does not break the bank. We spent some time in the capital, Tbilisi, and were blown away by the value for money, unique architecture, and excellent food and wine.

At the lower end, you can expect to travel around Georgia for about $30 a day, stay in hostels, eat delicious local food, and travel by Marshrutka. A cheap hotel or hostel room costs about $10 a night. , a plate of khinkali dumplings is about $4, and an intercity marshrutka bus is about $7-10.

14. Kyrgyzstan

If you are considering visiting Central Asia, Kyrgyzstan makes a great first stop for those new to the region. The first was for his three-week backpacking trip and the second was to help plan new trekking routes and bring tourism to more rural areas. It’s a country we will return to in a heartbeat!

Accommodation is what makes Kyrgyzstan one of his cheapest travel destinations. Accommodation is free (camping!) or starts at about $15 a night in a small hotel or guesthouse, but staying in a cool yurt camp is about the same. For meals, local fares are around $4-8 per ticket, while intercity marshrutkas are around $5.

However, such adventures may be added if you plan a guided trekking tour, overnight horseback riding, skiing, or rafting. Not only are the mountains stunning and the people friendly, but the culture and history here are incredibly interesting. In many parts of Kyrgyzstan, you can still see traditional costumes, people riding horses, and yurts that dot the landscape.

Even if hiking, camping, or horse trekking aren’t your thing, there’s plenty to do. Karakol town has a lot to offer other than trekking, such as beautiful Issyk-Kul Lake, Altan Arashan hot springs, visiting the wonderful village of Dungan, and family dinners.

These days, the capital, Bishkek, has some pretty cool Craft His Beer His bars, as well as plenty of museums, galleries, and more. Some of our favorite travel memories come from Kyrgyzstan. If you visit this affordable country, don’t miss our planned ‘Our Route’ trek in Jirgalang! 

15. Nepal

Renowned for its great trekking opportunities, hospitable people, and incredible cultural experiences, Nepal is also known as a cheap travel destination.

There are different types of travelers here. $50,000 Everest Some join his trekking expedition, while others come here on a year-long international travel budget. Luckily, everything is affordable except climbing Mount Everest in Nepal.

Where Will You Go? 

As the world becomes more connected through flights, advanced communications, and trade, it is becoming more expensive to visit many places each year.

Thankfully, there are still some great countries that always offer great value to travelers. The world’s most exciting countries are often still developing countries. For visitors, this not only means lower prices but also a better understanding of the global economy and wealth inequality.

We always recommend visiting the country independently in order to give back as much money as possible to the local community. Instead of always staying at American or European chain resorts, consider guesthouses, hostels, and locally owned homes.

Consider going there and hiring a guide yourself, or booking online with a local company, rather than joining a foreign tour. Not only will this probably be much cheaper for you, but it will also enrich your experience in the places you visit.

In this article, we’ve listed 15 of our favorite low-cost countries, but the list is by no means exhaustive! Have fun planning your trip.
