It’s the time of the year when you want to take some time off. Working hard throughout the year can get the best of you, and a well-deserved vacation may just be your only way to escape insanity. But as much as you want to spend a fortune on the vacation of your dreams, the truth is you don’t have that fortune and even if you do you know it’s not worth spending them all on your holiday getaways. After all, you still have a life to live after your vacation. Thankfully there are travel destinations out there which won’t break the bank.
If you’re heading to Sweden and you can’t afford to go to Scandinavia, then Gothenburg will be your most savvy option. It’s the country’s second largest city and the world’s 12th most inventive city, according to Forbes. Among its great attractions are the beautiful picnic-friendly Keillers Park and the indie-style café known as Röda Sten. Because this city is home to a lot of students, city life is affordable characterized by cheap eats, plenty of museums, a large amusement park, and lots of open green spaces.
For those travelling on a budget, Phnom Penh and Siem Reap where mid-range hotels abound are great destinations. Budget accommodations are also available for those seeking for cheaper options.

Situated in South America, Bolivia is the most ethnic and good-for-the-money destination. The crafts markets are unbelievably attractive and affordable.

Visiting Nepal will surely break your monotonous lifestyle but not your wallet. With a very little investment, you’re in for a great surprise. Go for something as adventurous as Himalayan hiking.
