1. Tbilisi, Georgia
We are descending into Georgia! The smallest of the travel destinations on this list that is nestled between the two continents of Europe and Asia. The capital of Georgia, Tbilisi, is the optimal travel destination for this summer, especially for those who want to experience the most inexpensive tourism near Europe.
According to many fellow travelers, a night in a hotel within the city center is close to $10 for two individuals. Surely, your wallet will befriend that amount instead of the average night in New York City, expecting it to be just under $300!
Food is also considered to be a very affordable expense in Georgia. If you are thinking about going out for all three meals and relishing in the mouthwatering cuisine, expect the check to be just under $7. Usually, many tourists can get away with spending less on food if you befriend a local, who will most likely extend the offer to feed you a week’s worth of food! Keep in mind hospitality is a big thing here!
Entertainment is crucial when in a new city. Fortunately, you will have no problem with finding museums and other attractions such as the National Opera and Ballet Theater, which offers a variety of quality performances. No matter your form of entertainment in Tbilisi, it is easy to stick to the glorified ticket entrance price of $7.
So what are your waiting for? Have some fun in this beautiful city!
2. Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Dear passengers, if you look to your left you will see the peaceful flux of the Saigon River, which means that we will be arriving to our second travel destination fairly shortly. Keep in mind that Ho Chi Minh City is in fact the largest city of Vietnam, but does not hold the title as the capital of this fascinating Asian country.
A couple of things to consider before immersing yourself in its history, culture, and cuisine; the average night within the city center will be the most costly expense. On average, you would be paying $86 per night for two individuals. That amount might be slightly more expensive, but it is all worth it when you have easy access to the bustling life and several attractions near your hotel.
On the flip side, food will be the least of your worries, that is if you decide to venture outside to the more local neighborhoods. Street food is common here and it is a go-to staple for almost any local, so food from those small street-side shops should cost you about $1 per meal, making this one of the best inexpensive travel destinations! However, if you are looking to dine at an upscale restaurant, for all three meals, it should amount to $5. Still very inexpensive!
Entertainment including tickets to museums, and other attractions, will amass to $10. So, whether you are dying to visit the Golden Dragon Puppet Theater, or setting aside an evening to attend a performance at the Saigon Opera House, you will not sweat about your wallet to see quality cultural events.
Now how about getting some delicious Pho and sitting by that river?
3. Havana, Cuba
The pilot has requested the seatbelt sign and most importantly the song “Havana”, to be switched on to accompany our descent into our third destination, Cuba! You guessed it, we have made it to one of the most beautiful capitals of the Caribbean, where tropical weather and vibrant Spanish colonial architecture greet you with a warm hug.
Traveling from North America, Havana, is one of the most exemplary travel destinations for the summer, because along with the cost of living, food, and entertainment, the flight ticket will also be an inexpensive companion. In other words, geographically you are closer to Cuba than to the other incredible travel destinations for the summer. But, let us not forget to analyze the expenses!
In the heart of Havana, you doze off to the sound of distant music and the soft Spanish chatter, all for just $67! Here in Havana, the cost for a night in a hotel is incredibly inexpensive considering the location and the picturesque ambiance.
Both food and entertainment are something the Cubans take pride in and you will be given a plethora of options. According to travelers who have spent much of their time discovering the city, they spent an average of $9 for the infamous Cuban cuisine as well as the entertainment scene. So if you want to indulge in a sweet dish of Flan de Huevos, while watching couples dance the Samba, then Cuba is the prime place for you!
4. Istanbul, Turkey
Hold on tight, we might experience a turbulent descent into Istanbul! This city was known to be the capital of both the Byzantine and Ottoman Empire, and on account of its history, it possesses both ancient and modern elements. In comparison to these other travel destinations, Istanbul has varying price ranges when it comes to spending the night in the core of this beautiful Middle Eastern city.
You should anticipate a higher average price of $116 USD per night for two individuals, however, that number can easily be reduced if you search hard enough for a hotel that has the same location. Most people, opt for a hostel and still remain within the city center if finding an affordable hotel is a problem that you are constantly running into.
It is almost impossible to not splurge and indulge in authentic Turkish cuisine, which is usually a rare find in North America. If you decide to do so, you will expect to spend an average of $23.11 per day. We do not expect you to stop yourself from trying the Mercimek Kofte, a vegetarian delight that includes red lentils, tomato, and onions. I see your mouth watering!
Along with the food, expect the entertainment here to be a little more expensive. In Turkey, they emphasize the importance of entertainment and since almost much of the entertainment is found within the center, expect to spend $30. After all, you are paying to see history from many centuries ago!
5. Rabat, Morocco
Our final destination today folks, will be in Africa. Make sure to take all of your belongings with you as this city will surprise with you its beauty, affordability, and will not make you want to go back home! If you would like to immerse yourself in the breathtaking white architecture and the vast ocean, then spending the $49 is an easy yes!
