Feeling ready to take a vacation but don’t want to miss your favorite shows or sporting events?
How convenient. With a Slingbox you will be able to watch all of your live TV no matter where you decide to vacation. Here are our top 10 travel destinations you should visit that won’t put a dent in your wallet.
If you are looking to experience some beautiful culture shock, you gotta check out Cambodia. With cheap hotels and food for less than a dollar, you will feel bad for paying so little. Backpackers listen up because Cambodia would be the perfect place to go on an excursion with your friends. You can visit the famous Angkor Wat temple (the temple in the picture) and eat a fried fish on a stick. Yum. Check out below for a video of one of Cambodia’s largest food market in Phnom Penh!
Just looking at this picture gives me chills. I have always wanted to go to Vietnam for many reasons, but seeing Ha Long Bay or the Dragon Islands has been on my bucket list for years. You will understand after watching the below video. Anyways, with about $5 a day, you could easily afford food, transportation, or guest homes. Imagine how much you could get by with $10 a day. Also, pho. Pho is insanely delicious and if you have not tried it, I suggest Yelping a pho place tonight and going.
Gyros, souvlaki, kebabs, tzatziki sauce. Oh wow. The list goes on. Greek food plays a large reason why I would love to travel to Greece, but its time for me to get back to the reason why Greece is on this list. Greece seems like an expensive place to travel to, but after doing some research, it really is not bad at all. Airfare to Greece from the U.S can run from $500, which is an amazing deal. The reason why prices are low in Greece is due the ongoing economic difficulties that they are currently facing.
If you are looking for the complete package of scenery, nightlife, and of course food, Argentina is the spot. From forests to mountains to the Iguazu waterfalls (the waterfall in the picture above) Argentina offers a diverse selection of scenic options. Imagine all of the Instagram likes you would be getting by traveling to Argentina and taking pictures like this one. The good thing about Argentina is that it is very easy to find accommodations, transportation, and food for cheap. With about 25$ a day you can easily get by.
Want to relax on the beach and drink cold piña coladas in both hands? Then I’d suggest checking out the Dominican Republic. Flying to the Dominican Republic is the cheapest option when you want to visit the Caribbean. With about $30 a day you will cover accommodation, travel, and food. The posh hotels are nice, but since we are on a budget, I would suggest going somewhere that is separated from the tourist traps. But, if you do want to pay for the lavish hotels, rates start at just 90$.
Wow. Now this place looks really cool. I wouldn’t mind spending a couple weeks around the capital Podgorica and just getting lost. The small winding roads, incredible architecture, and the ancient mosques are enough for me to want to go to Montenegro. I haven’t even begun to talk about pricing in Podgorica, but I have already added this place to my monstrous list of places I would like to travel to. Average prices for a hotel in Podgorica are about 50$ a night, a meal for one would cost about $5, and a beer for a buck. Sounds like my type of vacation.
Even though Thailand earns the rep of being a highly popular destination spot, Thailand is still reasonably cheap. There are budget hotel rooms that can cost up to 10$ a night if you choose to avoid the major hotels. Most of the cliché traveling spots can get a little expensive, but you can go on tours of the jungle, temples, etc for around $15! Also, all beaches are free. Enjoy the super clear waters, while relaxing like a King.
Sure, South Korea seems like it would be really expensive to go to, but to be perfectly honest, it’s not that bad. Take in mind, that airfare will always be rather expensive, but you can easily travel throughout South Korea for fairly cheap. $1 would get you 1,149 Won which may sound like a lot of money, but you can easily pay for plenty of things with a few thousand won. A night out in Seoul with a full belly of Korean BBQ and drinks would run you about $20 to $30. Those deals are non-existent here in San Francisco. Not only does South Korea have a flashy nightlife and city experience, they are also well known for their beautiful countryside. It’s the best of both worlds.
Travelling to Morocco would be a place that will really put you out of your comfort zone, but once you submerse yourself in the culture and environment you will love it. The trick to paying less at Morocco is to avoid the classic tourist traps. You may see a large store selling kebabs and a salad for 10$, but go around the corner and you will find a local authentic eatery for about 2$. For 30$ a day you can stay at hostels or guesthouses, but for $50, you can stay at a riads. I had to look up what a riad is, but if Aladdin was offering his home on AirBnb that is what it would remind me of. A riad is technically a courtyard mini palace, and if I ever went to Morocco, I would definitely stay at a riad for a night or two.
Laos has such a relaxing ring to its name. After doing some research, Laos sounds like a blast, just waiting to happen. Have you ever heard of a tubing party? Well neither have I. In Laos, they have rivers that you literally just float down on an inflatable tube, and there will be bars and restaurants all along the river. You then pit stop at how ever many bars or restaurants you want, and then continue on your journey along the crystal clear rivers. Wow. Just imagine laying on my tube watching TV on my Slingplayer app. I’m going to have to wrap my phone in a Ziploc bag though, just to make sure I don’t mistakenly drop it. Also, if you want to see what else Laos has to offer on a more cultural side, you can visit the beautiful Buddhist monasteries or the mountain side that attract many tourists every year.
