  6. BUY NOW – Lonely Planet Argentina

  7. Mexico – So much ancient history to view in this country and picture perfect beaches to explore.  The food is brilliant, accommodation cheap and this is where Fiesta really comes into meaning.
  8. BUY NOW – Lonely Planet Mexico

  9. Romania – Don’t knock till you have tried it.  This place has so many hidden secrets and the nightlife (and women) in Bucharest is second to none.
  10. BUY NOW – Lonely Planet Romania

  11. Hungary – this is edged out by Romania purely on the fact that it is a little more off the beaten track than Hungary.  However this heavy hitter from the old eastern block provides cheap (and direct) airfares from Europe and a wide variety of tourist attractions.
  12. BUY NOW – Lonely Planet Hungary

  13. Turkey – this place caters for all types of budget travelers.  You can eat and drink the night away at one of the many fine seafood restaurants and clubs along the Bosphrus for a steal.  Or head on down to Antalya to soak up the sun in any number of the well priced villas.
  14. BUY NOW – Lonely Planet Turkey

  15. Morocco –  This is a very unique place to go and see on a budget.  Its got a lot of crazy wrapped up with a lot of adventure.  The Souks are where you will grab a bargain and also find great places for lunch or dinner.  Accommodation here is a steal also but don’t expect the Radisson unless you are willing to pay.
  16. BUY NOW – Lonely Planet Morocco

  17. Croatia – probably a little more expensive that it needs to be but still Croatia offers a lot of bang for you buck and the boat cruises that leave from either Dubrovnik or Split are absolutely amazing.  You can generally get these as all inclusive packages which saves you a lot of money.
  18. BUY NOW – Lonely Planet Croatia

  19. South Africa – sure there is a pretty good chance you will get robbed but hey it’s a must see country and your money will go very far at this destination with some accommodation coming in at little more than $3 US. To keep your budget adventure on the tracks check out some safari options at the Kruger National Park.
  20. BUY NOW – Lonely Planet South Africa

    Agreed Morroco was cheap but that could of been from the food poisoning...

    A few of us discovered that Malta was really cheap. Good affordable food and booze, accommodation was cheap, and shopping was inexpensive (they're famous for their stirling silver jewellery). There was also an hour bus ride you could catch for only 50 cents!
