I’ve been doing a ton of research to find the cheapest countries on earth, but I also want to live in a country that holds history and value to it. Living in a safe environment is also very important to me, so no matter how cheap a place is, I always keep in mind my safety and how I will do in the area.
Below are four cheap places to live around the globe:
Although it can currently be quite difficult to live here long term, it is very much doable to do for 2-3 months. The U.S. dollar goes a long way in Thailand and even in hype bigger, more populated cities.
My interest for this country comes from one of Anthony Bourdain’s episodes. He tried all of this different food that I’ve never seen before and it also looked so delicious. Thailand is also very beautiful, and has many volunteer projects to choose from.
I lived here for two months while volunteering at a special needs orphanage. I spent about $3US on food daily (I was given free breakfast and dinner from my volunteer program). $3US can pay for a 4 course meal which is readily available at most restaurants in Cusco.
Transportation is also quite cheap, as a taxi from one end to Cusco to the other is only about $1US. The buses get even cheaper than that, only being about $.25US. There are needless activities and places to visit in Peru and it can all be done quite cheap. Machu Picchu is a definite must, but don’t forget about Lake Titicaca (make sure to visit the Floating Islands), Tipon, and more.
India has tons of different places to visit, and if you’ve never visited another country before, you’ll most likely get culture shock. Depending on where you are in India, things can be quite cheap, but keep in mind there are many parts of India that will be much different than home.
Expect dogs to be roaming around every where, and many of them at that. Garbage is usually piling on the streets in many areas in India as well. Although that can be a downfall, expect to experience a rich culture and country that holds values to their lives that have been around for some time.
Depending on where you are in Spain, it can be quite inexpensive. Siamang is filled with vibrant and beautiful architecture that is a must see at one point in a persons life. The food is also another bonus factor to living here.
Would you ever live in any of the countries I listed above? What other countries would you consider living in that is inexpensive?
