South Korea

South Korea is full of affordable. To me or the people who passionate to travel alone, South Korea is one of the greatest “undiscovered” travel destinations in the world — its prices rival that of Southeast Asia, it’s high tech, the food is mouthwatering, delicious and eclectic, the countryside is jaw-droppingly beautiful, and the nightlife is out of this world.

It is one of the most underrated travel destinations in the world. With the South Korean currency at 1,100 won per $1 USD and most everything costing only a few thousand won, it’s hard to bust your budget here.

At $8 one can afford for Korean BBQ complete with drinks. You can pick up bottles of beer in 6-Eleven for less than a dollar. Trains, buses, and local transports are less expensive. Everything here is affordable – plus it’s fun and different! If you’re planning for a budget trip to Asia, visit South Korea.

The country lies in Central America, Panama is one of the prominent places for solo travel because Panamanians love adventure. The country is full of waterfalls.

Above all, you will find endless hikes, beaches, and island getaways. Essentially, it is an adventurer’s paradise for you.

That’s why local Panama’s gate welcomes adventurers from all around the world.

As a solo travel cost, in Panama, you’ll meet so many incredible locals who have made me feel you their best mate for the day!

When you travel alone you really mesmerized these days more so than when you are with your own friends back home. You’ll really be overwhelmed by the  Panamanian food and cuisine.

You don’t find these kinds of experiences in a Lonely Planet guidebook. You find them on solo travel adventures with locals who go out of their way to make sure you will feel your own home.

The hotels and guest houses in Panama are affordable for the families, couples, and for solo traveler’s.


Not all European cities are expensive and pricey, the cost of visiting solo is really affordable in Portugal.

Portugal is one of the bargain countries in the region — and one of my best destinations.

You will fell in love with the beautiful beaches, wine country, stunning cliffs, mouthwatering food, jovial locals, and historic cities all at bargain prices.

In recent years, Portugal has become a more popular and crowded  Lisbon has become especially inexpensive, people move there and affordable prices.

It’s an outstanding place after all! However, once you get outside of Lisbon, prices are still relatively cheap compared to other European cities.


Uruguay, officially the Oriental Republic of Uruguay or the Republic East of the Uruguay River is the smallest country lies in South America and underrated too. But the fact is Uruguay is not at all dull place.

Uruguay is quite affordable and inexpensive is lesser than many more countries in Europe. 1 US $ is equal to 30 Uruguayan pesos which means it is one of the best budget destinations for solo cost travelers.
