These Are World's Top Five Holiday Destination Where You Actually Can Save Money

Top Five Holiday Destination

If you’re on a shoestring budget, or fancy holidaying like a king for barely any cash, then you should book a flight to one of these remarkably low-cost holiday hotspots.

To figure out the cheapest cities in the world, Price of Travel has totted up the cost of spending a day in each destination.

Designed for budget travellers, the Backpacker Index for 2017 takes into account the average daily price of staying in a hostel dorm bed, three cheap meals, two public transport rides, one paid cultural attraction and three cheap beers.

And with a typical spend of £15 per day in these bucket list locations, you’ll actually be saving money once you’re there, compared to how much you'd usually splash back home.

Here are the top five cheapest cities in the world:

1. Pokhara, Nepal – £14.24

Picturesque Pokhara is a popular destination for tourists – and not just for its bargain prices where you’ll spend on average £14.24 per day.

The lakeside hotspot is a perfect place to kick back if you’re in the region for one of the world-famous treks in the Annapurna range.

While you’re there, head off-the-beaten-track to glimpse Old Pokhara or Devi’s Falls, a waterfall marking where the Pardi Khola stream disappears beneath the ground.

2. Hanoi, Vietnam – £14.69

The hustling and bustling capital of Vietnam is a great place to head to if you want more bang for your buck.

Sample some local dishes like pho and bun cha from street vendors for a few quid, or grab an ice cold beer from the city’s beer corner for roughly 40p per pop.

Attractions cost barely anything but day trips out of the capital, to see the spectacular seascape at Halong Bay or scenic mountains of Sapa, will be more pricey than you’re used to – but worth it.

3. Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon), Vietnam – £14.75

A fraction more expensive that Hanoi, southern Ho Chi Minh City is a buzzing wonderland teeming with locals on scooters so you better look both ways before you (attempt) to cross the street.

While you won’t be spending much while you’re there, you can save even more cash by taking in Ho Chi Minh City’s free sights like the night markets or simply strolling around the neighbourhoods.

But if you do feel like splashing out, or don’t fancy dirt cheap street food options, you can eat inexpensively at most restaurants too with a meal costing you less than a tenner.

4. Cairo, Egypt – £15.03

Egypt’s sprawling and crowded capital caters to high-end travellers and budget backpackers alike.

But brush up on your bartering skills because the price of almost all of the excursions can be negotiated.

To see the Great Pyramids and Sphinx costs just £3.50, but you’ll have to fork out more if you want to go inside the pyramids themselves.

Meanwhile munching on local Egyptian food is inexpensive as long as you avoid tourist traps.

5. Chiang Mai, Thailand – £15.05

Chiang Mai is Thailand’s second largest city, after the capital Bangkok, and its cultural offerings draws in the travellers.

Here you can stay in a three-star hotel for the same price as a hostel bed in Europe.

Most of the things to see are low-cost or totally free, for example you’ll pay just 70p for entry to the awe-inspiring golden temple Wat Phra That Doi Suthep.

Recharge your batteries after sight-seeing by grabbing some street food from the night market at rockbottom rates, roughly £1 to £2.50 for a meal.
