Traveling, seeing the world, and experiencing new adventures should be something we all enjoy. And it can be. Just because certain destinations seem experience, or others not all that indulgent, it doesn’t mean there is something for everyone all around the world. Regardless of your budget, you can travel, see new cultures and enjoy new experiences. So if you’ve been hoping to travel sometime soon, feel bored with the range of places that you’ve been to before, or just want to start thinking about where in the world you can afford to see, here are a few ideas for every budget.
First up, if you have little to no budget, you’re going to want to experience a whole lot of culture, for not a lot at all. London is one of the most incredible places in the world for that. Not only does every street feel terribly British, but you can sightsee for next to nothing. Visit Big Ben, bypass Buckingham Palace and see the sights from the Thames. You can even find some really great British restaurants and food carts that won’t break the bank!
Taking a small step up, we have Rome. Like many other places, Italy can be cheap or expensive as you want to make it. You can find parts of the country cost a lot, but you can find others that don’t. Rome is one of those locations that you can find either or. There really is something for everyone. Get takeout pizza for as little at €2, or dine in style at a 5* restaurant. You can even find budget accommodation or stay in style, although in such a beautiful city, you might want to spend a little more than London, just to enjoy the comforts.
Paris is another city that you can spend as little or as much as you like in. Although you could find accommodation for next to nothing or choose to stay at the Ritz, if you are on a budget, you’re going to want to find a happy medium here. There are plenty of ways to save money in Paris, but with incredible art and museum, fantastic shopping and some of the world's best food it would be rude not to splash out a little, wouldn’t it? You might regret being too frugal if it’s to be your one and only Parisian experience in life.
If there’s one city that you want to go a little bit crazy in, it’s going to be New York. You can cut back if you really want to, but when it comes to the Big Apple, it’s best to see it in style. Choose a borough that suits your personal style and stay there. But don’t scrimp. New York comes into itself when you find something you love. Visit the opera and dine in style! Don’t forget to head to Barney’s and Macy’s while you're in town too - you might even want to take an extra luggage bag to fill up when you’re there.
And then, when money's no object, when a budget isn’t in place, where could you possibly think of stay? How about Hong Kong, or even the Maldives (find more incredibly extravagant ideas here). When you visit Asia or the Indian Ocean, you want to make it count. You want to be able to stay where you want, see what you want, eat what you want, and buy what you want. So do it. If you’re budget-less there’s no better idea than heading East and experiencing something new.
