How Many Days Can I Travel On $1,000? (Your Guide To The Cheapest Countries To Travel)
Published on September 21, 2010
Wow, Laos is cheapest country now. I think Indonesia. But if you choose a cheaper accommodation I think you will stay longer.
Excellent post, very helpful for picking countries when you have a very limited budget. But two things. 1. I'm concerned about those monkey you have working for you. and 2. I'm surprised Brazil is so expensive. Plus they just slapped US travelers with a $75 visa fee.
I guess I have to forgive you for not including Canada :)
Having spent a month in China this past summer, I can't imagine trying to live on a little under $21.00 a day. Since i am not on a long open ended trip I don't really budget like a backpacker. I try to keep within a budget, but not that modest.
In japan this summer as well I consciously tried to keep costs in line. It was difficult, and one way I managed to do it was by staying in Kyoto and Tokyo for extended periods of time.
I live in Korea , and the biggest expense here is probably accommodation. Maybe that's why there seems to such a large couch surfing community here. Food and transportation are much much cheaper than Japan.
Great chart! Just wondering, where's Peru? Outside of Macchu Picchu it's extremely cheap to travel through Peru. It has $6 rooms with private bath, friendly people and interesting sights.
Ha, well actually Canada's dollar is basically equal to the U.S. dollar right now, plus travel costs and expenses are not much different (unless you're buying lots of books), so I figured that the statistic for U.S. travel would be a good marker for Canada as well. Good info about Korea too.
And about China, that may be a little low on expenses in my chart, but again I tried to balance it out with rural travel too. Were you traveling in more expensive areas of China?
