  1. India :

Cheap food and travel, as well as a well-trodden backpacker route, make India a cheap and eye-opening travel location. Travelling on a budget here means reverting to some seriously back-to-basics living, but the payoff of incredible food and a country rich with culture, history and stunning architecture is well worth it.


  1. Nepal :

In Nepal, you’ll have a wonderful experience if you’re looking for classic Asian culture and tropical nature. Trekking in the undeveloped countryside, you will be able to enjoy the country’s organic and beautiful Asian heritage. Head to Bhaktapur in the Kathmandu Valley, and don’t miss the sacred Hindu and Buddhist temples, like famous Pashupatinath, Budhanilkantha, and Manakamana. For many backpackers, even one month is not enough to soak in the peaceful aura.


  1. Indonesia :

Indonesia enables you to enjoy mysterious rainforests, silver beaches and crystal-clear green seas without swiping your credit card too frequently. You can even enjoy an elephant trek at Tangkahan village which will be a lot of fun! If you prefer the sea activities, Sumba Island is a good option.

Sri Lanka

  1. Sri Lanka :

Colombo, the commercial capital of Sri Lana, is the most popular city to visit here. Sri Jayewardenepura Kotte is actually the capital of the country and worth a visit to as well.
