Traveling on budget is usually tough. There are so many expenses to consider – flights, hotels, transportation, food. The list goes on. But what if there were some really beautiful, yet inexpensive destinations out there? In fact there are few and we are going to look at them in more detail. Before we proceed with our list, here are some tips on how to get cheap flights, affordable hotels and how to save some travel money. All these topics have been covered in this blog already.
Each one of us has this thought from time to time: How to get rich? How to quit my job and have enough money for traveling? The fact is most people are running in a circle, that is keeping them from getting rich and wealthy – taking more and more debt and ending up paying interest only.

Travel budget (or travel money) is often hard to build, especially if you are planning on going somewhere further than neighboring village. Flight tickets, hotels, food and local transport, not to mention museum passes and other entrance fees.
