Would you like to travel to the cheapest destinations in the world so you won’t spend a fortune? That’s possible but you have to choose the right cities.
Hoppa, the leading portal of transfers between airports, cities and resorts, drew up the annual report about the Most Expensive vs Cheapest Destinations for the coming year. They have compared the priciest and lowest costs for accommodation, meals, drinks and taxi fares per person, as well as unexpected medical costs. The result is a ranking 100 cities worldwide.
So, if your budget is low, before booking, you better have a look at the list, if you don’t want to have bad surprises and run out of money.
First of all, you absolutely have to avoid New York, if you want to spend less. In the Big Apple, you can spend about 400 euros a day. That’s a lot! Just think that with the same money you can spend 5 days in the cheapest and you’ll also take the rest.
But, drill down and see the cheapest destinations in the world to travel in 2018.
1 Kiev, Ukraine 75 euros
2 Antalya, Turkey 81 euros
3 Manila, Philippines 81.40 euros
4 Denpasar, Indonesia 86.60 euros
5 Siem Reap, Cambodia 91.50 euros

7 Bucharest, Romania 97.10 euros
8 Jakarta, Indonesia 98.60 euros
9 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 101.30 euros
