Whether your goal was to try new things this year or to get out there and see some new countries, there are a surprising amount of places where you can travel for a relatively affordable price.

The team at ParkDIA has found a few “Bucket List” locations that you can travel to on a budget. Keep reading to see a few of the places that you should consider adding to your travel itinerary this year.


This country is known for having spectacular views, unique food, and a culture that you can’t help but fall in love with. Just last year, Peru was listed as one of the most affordable places to visit. The primary reason behind this is the exchange rate that you get to enjoy when planning your travels. One American dollar is the equivalent of roughly three soles.

Aside from being an affordable trip to plan, there are so many activities that you can enjoy while you’re visiting Peru. There are countless museums and historical sites like Machu Picchu that are right there for your enjoyment. It’s also a fantastic place to explore on a backpacking trip. If you’re considering backpacking through Peru, you can get away with extended stays for extremely cheap.


Okay, so flying to Vietnam isn’t exactly affordable, but once you’ve arrived there your trip is going to be extremely cheap. This is another country that is going to offer you countless views and immerse you in the history of their culture. One of the things that many people suggest doing when visiting Vietnam is exploring the different tunnels and caves that the country has to offer.

If you’re a foodie, Vietnam is also known for offering a unique menu at just about any place that you stay. In the case that you’re an adventurous soul that is up for trying new things, Vietnamese food is supposed to be incredible and out of the box in comparison to the food you find here in the States. But hey, when in Rome! (Or in this case, Vietnam).


One of the most iconic pictures found in travel brochures is of Greece. The bright white homes with colorful rooftops, right along the deep blue waters. There is something so welcoming about this beautiful country, and the best part is that it’s also easy to travel there on a budget! If you’re looking for a place to visit where you can enjoy beautiful beaches and warm weather, it’s definitely worth looking into Greece.

There are a few activities that stand out when it comes to visiting Greece. For starters, if you are a snorkeler or scuba diver, there are endless reefs and locations that you should look into. The warm waters and clean beaches make it an ideal place to dive. More importantly, the food. We couldn’t mention Greece without talking about the food!

So many people have Europe on their bucket list of places to travel. The reality is, flying to Europe can get rather expensive, but there are so many ways that you can make your stay there affordable.

The idea of traveling by train is unique and an experience that not everyone can say they’ve experienced. It also gives you a firsthand view of some of the most incredible sights that Europe has to offer.
