Affordable countries

Thinking about going on a new adventure, but unsure where to go? When it comes to planning a big trip, whether it be to a different state or a different country, there are many things to consider.  For those who want to travel to a different country or overseas, the cost is always a consideration.

The difficulty with an article like this is that as I sit here in the Outdoor Revival HQ it’s easy for me to work out costs and look at all the good stuff about going to affordable countries.  But, the onus has to be on you to look up the current political, environmental and civil situations in any place that you’re traveling to.  You should consult the government websites that give advice to overseas travelers, in the US that’s the US State Department.

There are a few countries on our list that will flux in and out of desirable locations, so check before you book.

 

Saying all that there are some amazing deals to be had and so it’s well worth looking into where you can go to have the holiday of a lifetime at an affordable price.

Here is a list of the top 15 cheapest countries to travel to (all prices in US dollars that are rounded up or down):

1. Algeria

The price for traveling here is only $75! This is by far one of the cheapest places to visit on this list.

2. Angola

The price for traveling here is $1,900.  Recent studies show that almost 50 places in the country are set to become some of the hottest holiday vacation spots within the next ten years.

 

3. Botswana

This is another cheap place to visit.  Ok, I know this is going to sound weird, but, Botswana offers some of the best heavy metal rock venues for those hardcore music travelers.  It claims to come close to the United States for some of the best rock metal music. Love elephants? It is believed that this area has more elephants than anywhere else.

4. Egypt

5. Gambia

The average price to travel in this country is $915.  One recommended adventure to have a go at in this country could be touring the River Gambia.  For those who love wildlife and new scenery, this activity is perfect! Avid birdwatcher? Gambia offers a river trip at dawn for those who want to see over 550 species of birds. Want to play with chimpanzees? Go down to the chimpanzee rehabilitation center to learn about the area and the animals living there.

 

Senegambian stone circles (megaliths) which run from Senegal through the Gambia and which are described by UNESCO as “the largest concentration of stone circles seen anywhere in the world”.

6. India

Even if you aren’t a history buff, you will know about and want to visit the Taj Mahal.  Add this building to your list of “must-sees” when traveling here. If you’re brave, try making your way to the capital of New Delhi.  The hustle and bustle of the busy, crowded streets is quite an experience.
