Varna, Bulgaria


Plenty of countries make up Eastern Europe, but Bulgaria tops the list. Not only is Bulgaria light on your budget for visiting, the country offers something for everyone. Explore historic European architecture, visit beautiful beaches, and hike the countryside.





Pre Rup, Cambodia


If Asian culture intrigues you, Cambodia should be on your list! Cambodia is one of the best budget-friendly travel destinations within Asia, where you could easily spend less than $50 a day for accommodations and food.  Take advantage of the beautiful Cambodian ruins, jungles, and beaches.



Get the ultimate South American experience by visiting the heritage-rich country of Nicaragua. Nestled just south of Honduras and El Salvador, Nicaragua is known for its festive nightlife, abundance of culture, beautiful rain forests, and stunning beaches.





Luanda, Angola


Truly get out of your comfort zone and visit the West-African country of Angola.
