When wanderlust strikes, it is only a matter of time before you dive headlong into travel blogs and videos, trying to shortlist a few destinations that your heart, and social media handles will feel blessed to find. The next step is to zero in on a location and adjust your schedule as per a tightly drawn-up itinerary. But wait, what if this perfect location falls out of your budget? Feeling that sinking feeling in your heart already? Do not despair yet. We have drawn up a perfect list of the most affordable holiday destinations around the world which have unparalleled joy and beauty to offer, without you having to worry about going broke:
                      

1. Bolivia




This country may be the cheapest in South America but does not cheap out on offering fun experiences. You can expect decent accommodation at very low prices, and head to Copacabana by the Lake Titicaca to enjoy fresh trout cooked by locals. Board the ‘subway in the sky’ cable car to enjoy beautiful views from dizzying heights, take a walk in  Calle Jaen to witness the class and beauty of some colonial architecture, or simply take a jeep tour to Salar de Uyuni, the world’s largest salt flat. This amazing sight known as the world’s largest mirror is simply too beautiful to be missed.

2.  Cambodia




Cambodia is gradually becoming a global hotspot for adventure seekers on a budget. Choose from a wide variety of bed and breakfast lodges. You can even get luxury accommodations at very affordable rates here! Enjoy delicious chicken broth and noodles at affordable cafes along the street side, topped off with the warm hospitality of Cambodians. Embark on some soul-searching while witnessing the beautiful sunrise behind the iconic Angkor Wat temple, or simply spend your time getting around the 72 beautiful temples here. You can even purchase a 3 day pass to see all the temples, which comes down to less than 2USD per temple. Whoever said travelling was only for the rich?

3. Honduras




 Are you longing for a beach holiday but looking for a cheaper alternative to the Maldives? Look no further than Honduras, for the pristine beaches covered in white sand will make you feel exactly as happy.
