Living in a far away land from home makes the whole experience all the more fascinating if one gets to spend a lot less on things than their own country as you get to save a lot in the meantime. Listed below are names of some of the world’s cheapest countries, and the benefits they provide to foreigners.
Famed as the Land of Smiles, this country needs no introduction to the West. Easily the most visited country in South-East Asia, it certainly knows how to play the role of the perfect host to the foreigners. The satisfaction that one gets in visiting a street-stall, paying around £0.50 per plate of fried rice, sitting on a cheap chair and witnessing the world pass around showcases a picture that cannot be expressed in mere words. Added comfort is provided by the cheap guest houses, less-than-a-pound beer bottles, and cheap bus-travel. The best part is that living in this country is even much cheaper than visiting it. Renting a studio apartment in Bangkok costs around £90 a month and with a budget of around £300, one can lead a comfortable and satisfying life.
This country’s history may be a bit troubled one, but as far as the list of world’s cheapest countries are concerned, one cannot exclude Cambodia. With a budget of £300 per month, one can easily live like a king even in this country’s capital city. An apartment with an air-conditioner can set one back by £120 a month, which might sound a bit expensive to many when compared with Bangkok, but one can reduce the expenses by sharing it with other westerners. The meal in this country is quite cheap than Thailand, with a full meal coming in for less than £1.20 and beer around £0.60.
The world’s second-biggest archipelago is quite cheap to live in, especially when it offers some fascinating cities and a great number of beautiful beaches. Renting an apartment can range anything between £25 and £120 with meals in good restaurants costing around £6 a person. Also, it is one of the least visited among the countries in South-East Asia, so one can easily expect some authentic experience from the locals.
Considered by many to be one of the favorite destinations in Latin America irrespective of the budget of the visitor, this country is listed among the cheapest countries and offers accommodations within £300, but it might get a bit higher as one move towards San Jose. Outside the capital, the cost reduces drastically, with entire houses being offered for a mere £150 per month. The pricing of the food is made in a pretty customer-friendly manner with local restaurants offering quality food within £1.20. It still might sound a bit higher than other nations in Latin America, but the amenities that the country offers such as wildlife-spotting, hiking, surfing etc, can easily be termed to be one of the best in the world.
