These Are The 10 Best Places To Travel To On A Budget In 2018


Do you like travel? Do you not like spending a shit load of money on travel?

Well then fellow frugal Franks, you’ll need to pay attention to Lonely Planet‘s list of the top 10 places to travel on a budget for 2018.

From natural red rock deserts to a Moroccan fishing port, these ten spots will feed your wanderlust without breaking the bank.

1. Tallinn, Estonia

“Estonia’s capital is compact, fashionable and terrific value. “

2. Lanzarote, Canary Islands, Spain

“Over the past decade, in-the-know independent travellers are increasingly heading to Lanzarote.”

3. Arizona, USA

“For affordable and accessible adventures in Arizona, aim for simple roadside motels, then camp and hike.”

4. La Paz, Bolivia

“Spectacularly situated at 3660m, La Paz is one of South America’s best value places to linger, whether you’re keen on acclimatising, learning Spanish or simply enjoying the colourful street life and Andean setting.”

5. Poland

“Poland somehow manages to remain affordable and relatively under-visited. Sure, Kraków grabs the crowds, but you can explore here for less than in Prague or Berlin.”

6. Essaouira, Morocco

“Love Morocco? Been to Marrakesh? Us too. If you’re seeking another, still affordable side of this safe slice of north Africa then Essaouira might just be the place for you.”

7. United Kingdom

“While the UK government busies itself with Brexit, travellers can reap the rewards.”

8. Baja California, Mexico

“It’s the world’s second-longest peninsula; but for many, visiting Baja California still means a quick hop over the border into Tijuana or Tecate – meaning there’s 1200km of less-explored territory.”

9. Jacksonville, Florida

“Not only is Jacksonville affordable for sleeping (with the lowest hotel rates in the state), but you can feel as if you’re discovering somewhere new.”

10. Hunan, China

“Hunan’s highlights come thick and fast. At Zhangjiajie, an amazing sandstone canyon with almost 250 bizarrely shaped peaks, the world’s longest glass bridge opened in 2016.”

Hmm… Now where to first?
