One of the most popular countries in the world has seen its currency (lira) tank. As a traveler, this allows you to stretch your dollar much further.

While Istanbul is without a doubt the most popular destination, the country as a whole is mesmerizing from the Black Sea to the Mediterranean with so many historical cities in between.

No matter where you go, you can splurge on flavorful Turkish coffee and wondrous bazaars. Although, one of the main attractions just became more expensive.

From the buzzing city of Bangkok to phenomenal beaches along the stunning coastline, there is no way you'll ever have a dull moment.

Best of all, you can hop around on the cheap without any anxieties of going over budget. Floating markets and night markets are your friend when in need of cheap, yet delicious, food.

Whether you're into temple-hopping, elephant sanctuaries, or nights out that never seem to end, Thailand is the place to experience it all on a budget.


One of the trendiest and fastest-growing countries in Europe, it is also one of the most affordable, hence why digital nomads love to call this place home.

The capital city of Tirana is an excellent gateway into the country, but many find themselves heading to the coast, such as Durres, Saranda, and Ksamil.

The gorgeous Mediterranean seaside is just too good to pass up when paying a visit to Albania. Tourists will find better value on beachfront stays, fresh food, local beer, and transport.


As popular as Portugal has become, it's quite surprising how affordable it remains. Prices tend to spike when the cat's out of the bag.

With plenty of flights from the U.S., this stunning European country is super accessible. Oftentimes, airfare is on the lower end too.

More and more Americans have been flocking to Portugal for a dreamy vacation with one key reason being how far their dollar goes.

From charming historical cities like Lisbon to jaw-dropping islands like Madeira, travelers are destined to check off some travel bucket list items here.

With cities dating back centuries and islands teeming with otherworldly scenery, who wouldn't want to travel here all while saving hard-earned cash?

Colombia is hugely popular for travelers and super affordable, but it comes with a caveat. The U.S. Embassy has issued a travel security alert after the deaths of 8 American tourists in recent months.

Travelers always seem to have altering views of their experiences through Colombia, and the reality is safety is hard to report on as crime can happen to anyone at any time.

Travelers love visiting such cities as Medellin, Bogota, Santa Marta, and so many more.

Regardless, Colombia is one of the most accessible Latin American countries from the U.S. Digital nomads love making Colombia their home base as living here is affordable across the board.

Great recommendations πŸ‘Œ but the hot spots in Turkey match the euro and usa dollar, making their fluctuating currency irrelevant. Thailand often has tourist prices and its neighbor Malaysia is much cheaper. Langkawi is a great beach destination. Albania is nice and cheap, North Macedonia and Kosovo are cheaper. Mind you, they don't have the beaches but they are friendlier.
