With more and more people traveling around the world, countries are getting more expensive to stay and eat in, but despite popular beliefs it is possible to pick the right place and you can stretch your dollar for days, even weeks. And the great news; you won’t even have to sleep on the floor. Sure you won’t find fancy five star hotels for under $50 a day but you will find local accommodations that more than meet your needs. Taking public transportation, eating in local spots and doing your research will go a long way in finding countries to visit for less than $50 a day. Luckily for you we have done the work for you. So start daydreaming which one of these countries will be next on your bucket list.

10. Thailand

Despite its popularity Thailand has remained one of the cheapest countries to visit over the years. The north side of the country is definitely cheaper than Bangkok and the islands but you will be hard pressed to spend more than $50 a day. Rooms go for about $6-10 per day and a meal from a local restaurant will run you $5. The picture perfect islands are even a bargain here, provided you don’t want to stay in a luxury resort. Local buses are cheap, beers are cheap and activities and sightseeing rarely runs you over $15. It is no wonder Thailand remains a hugely popular destination for budget travelers and although many continue to flock here, there is still plenty to explore without being engulfed in the crowds.

9. Greece

Greece has always been a bit of a budget traveler’s paradise when it comes to Europe. The fall of the economy in Greece has only made it more affordable to visit. Whether you are choosing to visit one of the islands or the mainland, there are bargains to be found. In the past few years tourism has actually been on the decline to this beautiful country and has dragged the low prices even lower. Street vendors will sell you fresh delicious gyros for under $3 where a huge lamb meal complete with local alcohol might run you $10. Hotels and rooms can be as cheap as $20 a night and take local buses to save even more. Stay away from the touristy islands to save on accommodations and meals and choose to visit the roads less traveled.
