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 eyeing the areas where you can spend the winter months and not go bankrupt 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. Comfortable climate, low prices and entertainment for every taste make this destination very attractive in the eyes of travelers. You can go to live on quiet Islands (for example, a condo on Koh Samui will cost about 10 thousand rubles), to choose the North (Chiang Mai) or, if you like active life and nightlife, stay in Bangkok. Many people came to Thailand once, then return or even move to this country.
You will be surprised, but in this country, located in the North-West of South America, you can quite comfortably live on the average Russian salary. Of course, those who are used to noisy cities, the benefits of civilization and entertainment for every taste, there will be a little boring. But those who appreciate a normal health care system, a 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 Indian subcontinent, has not yet become a Mecca for travelers from around the world, so the prices are very reasonable for our tourists. And if you think about what it would be possible to survive the Russian winter, look, for example, to Colombo. This city, where you can find cheap accommodation, beautiful scenery, tropical climate and delicious food, can be an ideal option for the winter.
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, will cost only 30 thousand rubles. For this money it will be possible not only to find a cozy apartment almost in the city center, but also to choose entertainment for every taste. The kaleidoscope city of Lima, the capital of the Incas of Cusco and the mystical lines of Nazca, the temples of Machu Picchu and the bustling life of the 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 is not high enough, the city of Phnom Penh, and the whole of Cambodia, is not such an attractive place, Russian tourists feel very good here. Many of them choose this budget and quiet country as a starting point, then here to start your exciting 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 look closely to Bhutan, a state in South Asia, located between India and China, are advised to choose the capital Thimphu as a life. In this one of the largest cities in the country, the cost of food and housing is so low that your average salary will be enough to find a cozy apartment in the center and do not deny yourself anything. It is believed that this place is chosen by the happiest people — and indeed, once for the first time in this country, you wonder with what warmth, joy and philosophy to all the locals.
