There are also private rooms available for rent! If you’re thinking of staying in a hostel, please read my article on the subject.
Generally, the further you are from the city, the less expensive it is.
Traditional taxis can be pricey, so I try to utilize Uber whenever it is available. Buses are frequently the best mode of transportation and can be foundin practically any major city.
Furthermore, most cities have TukTuks (tricycles) that are easily accessible and always enjoyable to ride, not to mention inexpensive.
Your daily activities have the potential to devastate your finances. A lot of my most interesting experiences have been completely free!
To save money, try using the following methods:
Ask for discounts: There’s always a discount available somewhere. Don’t be shy, go ahead and inquire!
Look for Special Offers on the Internet: Major discounts are frequently found on sites such as Groupon.
Research local information: Many popular tourist attractions provide free admission. In larger cities, there is never a lack of things to do.
All-Inclusive Tourist Pass: If you’re visiting for the first time, purchase an all-inclusive tourist pass. This way you can save money by having most things paid for beforehand.
4. Eat Cheap
Avoid overpriced touristy restaurants, always stick to your budget. Instead, opt for affordable meals. Street food stalls and cooking can be found almost anywhere, especially in Africa and Asia; you sit on a small plastic chair and eat a delicious dish.
You can always get great meals for under a dollar at a random street food stall. The best part is that you get to try out new local cuisine and interact with locals while on it.
5. Carry a refillable water bottle
Bottled water is less expensive, but it might add up to your budget if you consume more of it.
We tend to drink a lot of water to stay hydrated as we stroll around. Buying a bottle of water is not just expensive, but creates environmental waste too. Instead, take a refillable water bottle with you and utilize tap water.
6. Travel during the off-season.
Off-season is usually cheaper for plane tickets and hotel accommodations, and there may be more availability. You won’t have to deal with enormous crowds, and some attractions may be cheaper at that time. Just make sure that the places you want to go to are open.
