6 countries where you can relax with a modest budget
This selection will be relevant not only for those who choose where to spend the next two weeks of vacation, but also for those who are looking at destinations where you can spend the winter months and not go broke at the same time. We have chosen countries where you will feel great even with a very modest budget.
No wonder millions of tourists from all over the world come to this country every year. A comfortable climate, low prices and entertainment for every taste make this destination very attractive in the eyes of travelers. You can go live on quiet islands (for example, a Samui condo will cost about 10 thousand rubles), love the north (Chiang Mai) or, if you like active life and nightlife, stay in Bangkok. Many people, having arrived in Thailand once, then return or move to this country altogether.
You will be surprised, but in this country located in the north-west of South America, you can live quite comfortably on the average Russian salary. Of course, those who are used to noisy megalopolises, the benefits of civilization and entertainment for every taste will be a little bored here. But then, those who value the normal health care system, the relatively low cost of housing, fresh food and natural beauty will appreciate life in Ecuador.
Fortunately for many, this country, or rather, an island in the Indian Ocean, located south of the Hindustan Peninsula, has not yet managed to turn into a mecca of travelers from all over the world, therefore the prices here are very reasonable for our tourists. And if you are thinking that you could survive the Russian winter here, take a look, for example, at Colombo. This city, where you can find cheap accommodation, picturesque landscapes, a tropical climate and delicious food, can be an ideal wintering option.
Who would have thought that the monthly cost of living in Lima, a city on the Pacific coast of South America, the capital of Peru, would cost only 30 thousand rubles. For this money, it will be possible not only to find a comfortable apartment in the city center, but also to choose entertainment for every taste. The kaleidoscope city of Lima, the Inca capital of Cusco and the mystical lines of Nazca, the temples of Machu Picchu and the raging Amazon delta – all this can be found in Peru for a very modest budget.
Despite the fact that for most European and American expats who consider the local standard of living not high enough, the city of Phnom Penh, and indeed Cambodia, is not such an attractive place, Russian tourists feel very good here. Many of them choose this budget and calm country as a starting point, so that from here they can begin their fascinating journey through Asia. Although lost in the jungle, Cambodia is fascinating in itself and deserves special attention. Here you can find hundreds of palaces and temples of ancient Angkor, mountain ranges, national parks, beautiful lakes and a seaside resort.
Those who are eyeing Bhutan, a state in South Asia located between India and China, are advised to choose the capital of Thimphu as their life. In this one of the largest cities in the country, the cost of food and housing is so low that your average salary is enough for you to find comfortable apartments in the center and not deny yourself anything. It is believed that this very place is chosen by the happiest people – and indeed, having come to this country for the first time, you are surprised at how warmly, joyfully and philosophically the locals feel about everything.
