We all like to travel, but with the economy the way it is, it’s out of reach for many of us. Or is it? Here are my five top destinations for a shoestring budget.

Nepal

Yes, I know it was hit by a devastating earthquake in April this year, but it is still open to tourism. In fact, it is relying on tourism to help its people recover from it. Nepal is perfect for travelers on a budget—a cheap meal costs anywhere around 150 Nepalese rupees (about $1), with a three-course meal costing about $8.

Top 10 places for traveling in Nepal:

China

The best thing about China is that it’s a huge country, and it’s easy to get from one place to another as the transit itself is especially cheap, with a taxi starting at around $1.

Top tourist attractions in China:

Peru

Whatever you do, Machu Picchu is a must-see on your travels. It is one of the most magical structures ever seen. Other parts of Peru are equally stunning and affordable.

India

If you know how to get around, you will be able to stretch your budget. A plate of hot dhal and rice will cost you around 40 Indian rupees, that’s about 60 cents! You can get around on a train and travel for a few days for just a couple of dollars.

Laos

Laos is known for its beautiful mountains, Buddhist monasteries, and “tubing parties,” where you can float down a river and stop at bars and restaurants along the way. You can get a room for about $10 to $30 a night, and get street food (like plates of sticky rice) for about $1.
