When we’re feeling a little bit down, going on a trip is one of the first ideas that comes to mind. Not because we can escape from our problems by traveling, but because it makes us see everything from a fresh point of view.                  

What about the money? What if you don’t have a huge budget that allows you to pack and book a ticket to the Maldives today?

Have you heard of the FundMyTravel initiative? It’s all about supporting meaningful trips. Check out this campaign of a member raising money to study sustainability in Ecuador. It’s close to achieving its milestone and donors keep supporting the cause. Everyone wants to see Logan go to Ecuador. $20 is not much for a donor who wants to support a cause. $20 by $20, and you’ll have enough for your trip.

It’s really simple to become part of such an experience:

  • You’ll start your fundraising campaign by telling your story. Get people passionate about your trip! The way you share your story is really important. If you’re struggling with this part, you can hire an editing service to help you with the content.
  • Share your campaign via social media. Write emails to people you know.
  • Once you make this happen, don’t forget to share updates. The donors who helped you will want to know how things are going.

Since you’re on a budget, you’ll have to pick a budget-friendly destination for your trip. This means you’ll have to forget about the Maldives, but it doesn’t mean you can’t have the vacation of your dreams. These are 15 amazing destinations that won’t break the bank:


There’s a lot to see there. You’ll be surprised to find really affordable, but decent accommodation in Egypt.


It’s one of the most unusual places and cultures you’ll ever see. The architecture is amazing, and the food is out of this world.


You’ve seen it in movies, you just didn’t know what country it was. Breathtaking castles, gorgeous mountains, vibrant social life… you’ll find everything in Romania. Domestic beer costs less than $2 in a restaurant!


Thailand is the favorite destination for freelancers from big cities. They are spending less for accommodation and living expenses, and they get to live in an exotic country.


The moment you land there, you’ll think you’re in paradise. It’s not the cheapest destination in Central America, but it’s still more affordable than the Florida coast and most European cities.

South Korea

If you’re into skyscrapers mixed with historic architecture, this is the right place for you. Plus, Korean food is the best!


It’s a charming country that’s often out-shined by Spain and France in European tourism. For budget travelers, however, it’s the right choice.


The USA is not all that expensive as most tourists imagine. Utah, in particular, has some of the most beautiful landscapes to explore. You only need to rent a car, get your backpack, and set off for the adventure of your life.


The locals are really friendly. You can get street food for a few dollars, and the accommodation is really affordable, too.


You want a place with intact nature and unusual culture? You’ll love Kyrgyzstan!


If you plan your trip well, you’ll definitely have a budget-friendly vacation in the unique, and beautiful India.


It’s the country where 5-star hotels cost as much as the cheapest accommodation in luxury destinations. The hotels are amazing, and the culinary skills of these people will leave you speechless.


You’ll be taking photos like a maniac. Bolivia is the best destination for a cheap road trip.


You’ll find even beautiful islands that offer really affordable apartment accommodation. Check out Lefkada, Skiathos, Corfu, and Thasos.


Fiji can be a really expensive destination if you pick a resort. However, it also offers affordable accommodation in guesthouses. It’s the perfect destination for backpackers.


All these destinations are attractive. Which one do you plan on visiting next?
