10 cheap paradise places to visit
For all those who are tired of working everyday life and everyday rush, we have prepared this post. Let these photos warm your soul with your rich colors and brighten up the expectation of the upcoming vacation at sea, because it will certainly be very, very soon !!!
Avarua, Cook Islands
Formally, these islands are part of New Zealand, but from this archipelago they are located in 2008 km to the north-east. Local tropical beaches are not inferior to the Maldives or Seychelles, only housing can be rented here for $ 130 per month.
The locals are Polynesian natives, and they are not spoiled by tourists at all.
Not more than 100 thousand foreigners come here annually. For comparison: Hawaii attract 8 million tourists a year.
What can be done here? Watch whales, go hiking, enjoy the incredible scenery.
So what's the catch? Foreigners cannot buy property on the island. But they can rent it for 60 years. To become a full-fledged citizen of this planet, you will have to live here for several years and get special permission from the authorities.
Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic
This fabulous town is located in the Czech province of Bohemia. The whole city is like one huge medieval castle. All the streets in it are paved. Renaissance-style fairs and the unmatched Rose Festival are regularly held here. A three-course dinner for two here costs $ 20 all year round, and an apartment can be rented for $ 400 per month. And also there is the Vltava River - an ideal platform for rafting enthusiasts. The only catch is that for normal life here you have to at least learn a little Czech.
Koh Tonsai, Cambodia
It is a small island in the south of Cambodia. A true paradise of the jungle and beaches. Almost no one lives here, except for a few fishing families. So you can find a suitable bungalow for ridiculous money. Here you can relax on the beach or explore the local cave in the jungle. For five bucks, local fishermen right in front of you will prepare a delicious dinner from the crab they caught. And any other seafood here is a dollar or two.
What is the catch? Well, this is not a "children's" clean beach island, where you will spend days and nights lying under an umbrella. A wild local beach is sometimes decorated with packs of stray dogs or other inhabitants of the forest. But only here you can feel how far you are from civilization.
Right in the middle of Mexico is the classy culturally developed city of Guanajuato. An excellent apartment here can be rented for $ 150-200 per month, a glass of beer in a bar costs less than $ 1, and a movie ticket costs a miserable $ 3.
Ray Bradbury wrote the story “Next in Line” about his life experience here. It also hosts the famous art festival called Cervantino. He was named after the author of the novel about Don Quixote.
Pearl Islands, Panama
30 kilometers west of mainland Panama lies an amazing archipelago in the Pacific Ocean. Once a huge amount of pearls was mined here. There was a time when the most powerful pirates hid from the authorities on these islands. Now this place is a haven of magnificent resorts for locals.
You can rent a house by the sea for only $ 300 per month. An ideal place for voluntary exile.
By the way, three seasons of the series “Lost” were filmed here. So places in terms of picturesqueness are some of the most impressive on the planet.
The beaches of Agonda, Goa, India
The southern part of the coast of Goa is a place that allows you to ride elephants right on the beach. You can buy a bottle of wine for $ 0.5, get a haircut for $ 0.6, and remove a shack on the beach for $ 120 per month. Seriously, what else do you need?
This part of Goa is quite deserted, and the locals are not as spoiled by tourists as in the other part of the Indian coast. And in Agonda there are almost no hippies with their stupid plastic glasses. But there are a large number of temples and places for yoga.
Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria
This place is located in the valley of the river of the same name in northern Bulgaria. This is the best Riviera on the Black Sea coast. It is just as beautiful as in France, but a bottle of beer costs only $ 0.8. The population is only 200 thousand people.
Interestingly, this city saw the ups and downs of at least half a dozen world empires. And the apartment here can be rented for only $ 200 per month. The only drawback is the relatively poorly developed infrastructure.
Ho Kok Beach, Vietnam
The southeastern coast of Vietnam is famous for having 11 thousand hectares of rainforest on it. And this is almost the best place in Asia for diving and spearfishing: here passes a huge barrier reef. And here it’s free from tourists, even on weekends.
Therefore, housing here can be found for $ 150-200 per month. True, they will have to live in close contact with the locals. Get ready for them to share beach spots with you.
Ksamil Beach, Albania
The southern tip of Albania is an ideal place for a quiet life. Near the small town and Butrint National Park. The climate is Mediterranean, local products are olive oil and tangerines. Unlike neighboring Greece, Italy or even Croatia, it is very cheap: beer costs 90 cents per bottle, housing - $ 100-120 per month.
Eat seafood (30 kinds of fish are sold here, the average cost of a meal in a cafe is $ 6), drink cheap wine ($ 6 per bottle), ride catamarans and you will find that there will be no more tourists in five years.
Las Trancas, Chile
Here are some of the best mountain slopes of South America. Andes after all. Skiing is possible all year round, and rental housing will cost only $ 300 per month. Wealthy tourists live on the slopes of the mountains, and experienced tourists live in villages at their feet.
There is only one problem: winter is almost always here. But someone loves her, right?
