Traveling in Bolivia can occasionally be a bit uncomfortable as it is not properly set up for tourism, but if you are prepared to rough it a bit, you will have the experience of a lifetime. You can enjoy sights like the amazing Salar de Uyuni salt flats on a two day tour for less than $130 for both days. There is also a collection of museums that you can visit, such as the former home of Pedro Domingo Murillo, who was a leader during the 1809 La Paz Revolution. The cost to visit all of the museums is just $1. Bolivia offers some of the cheapest food and drink in the whole of South America, where a Paceña beer costs less than $2, and a bowl of hearty potato soup costs about the same.
Bulgaria is often disregarded as a holiday destination, but is has a lot to offer, from some of the most tranquil secluded beaches in Europe, to charming little towns – and all at surprisingly low prices. Small towns such as Varna on the coast, and ancient cities such as Plovdiv offer rich culture and beautiful vistas. There are also many exquisite mountain ranges that you can discover on foot or by bicycle. In the last few years Bulgaria has become a favorite among British travelers, as the Black Sea resorts offer incredibly low prices, and offer facilities comparable to those in destinations such as Spain. Bulgaria is considered an amazing city holiday location, where you can enjoy delicious food, kind company, strong drinks and a comfortable bed in beautiful accommodations for as little as $45 per day.
Cambodia is one of the most popular places to visit in Southeast Asia, and also one of the cheapest. Backpackers and luxury holiday makers can both spare their bucks when traveling in Cambodia. Hostels can cost as little as $3.50 per night; and many boutique hotels offer beautifully decorated rooms with modern luxuries, and swimming pools from $65 per night for 2 people sharing. Cambodia is rich in culture and history, with many iconic historical sites, such as the Angkor Wat Archaeological Park, which is a UNESCO World heritage site, and has been declared an official Wonder of the World. At $63, the three-day ticket to the park is a bit pricier in comparison to other costs in Cambodia, but when spread out over the three days, it works out to be well worth it – there are so many temples to see, and a one day pass is a bit short to see it all.
