Nestled right between Thailand and Vietnam, Laos is a destination that many travelers tend to overlook. The truth is, it’s one of the best destinations in Southeast Asia for adventurers.

The landlocked country is mountainous with vast forests, making it a haven for all sorts of outdoor activities like climbing, hiking, kayaking, and hot air ballooning, all for very affordable prices. The country’s infrastructure has also greatly improved in the past several years, giving travelers more convenience while still retaining its quiet, rural charm.


Budget: About $20 to $40 per day

Nepal is one of the best places on the planet for mountain trekking. Visitors will be able to access various well-supported routes throughout the Himalayas, with many nearby tea houses where you can eat, rest, and stay overnight.

Adventurers searching for an unforgettable experience can go on the famous 7-day Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) trek and spend as little as $20 a day.


Budget: About $40 to $60 per day

Mexico is a country that’s often misunderstood, especially by those misled by sensationalized news reports. Outside a few regions that are rarely visited by tourists, Mexico is actually a safe country for vacationers. It’s perfect if you’re looking forward to an affordable beach holiday or a fun culture-filled backpacking trip.

One of the most popular routes for tourists starts at Mexico City, winding towards the states of Oaxaca and Chiapas and then ending in the Yucatan Peninsula. Famous resort cities like Playa Del Carmen and Cancun may be a bit expensive, but you can find less populated and more affordable accommodations along the coast.


Budget: About $30 to $50 per day

While plane fares to Argentina may not exactly be cheap, vacationers will be able to enjoy great value once they get there.

There’s plenty fantastic destinations to visit in Argentina, such as Buenos Aires, Cordoba, Salta, and Foz do Iguacu. For travelers looking for a one-of-a-kind experience, one of the best places to visit is the Patagonia mountain region, known for its fascinating wildlife and soaring peaks at Torres del Paine.


Budget: About $30 to $50 per day

Thailand is a very popular tourist destination, so it can be overcrowded especially during peak seasons. The trick is to book accommodations that are far away from commercialized beaches.

One of the best spots in Thailand is the Chiang Mai region, which offers outstanding bang for the buck. You’ll be able to find extremely affordable backpacker accommodations for as low as $5/night and comfortable hotels with swimming pools for around $30/night, all surrounded by sweeping rice fields, serene landscapes, and majestic Buddhist temples.
