Many people love to travel to Asia because of the culture, the food, the nice beaches, the lovely weather, and most importantly, the cost. Traveling in Asia is tend to be cheap in comparison with other parts of the world — and with the low cost, people get satisfaction from the food, the weather, and many more. No surprise that in the past few years, Asia has been the main destination for many people to travel, especially for millennials. Places like Phuket, Bali, Seoul, Singapore, Hong Kong, — and many more — has become the main destination to travel to Asia. As of this, prices in these places have raised and become very mainstream. But did you know that there are many other beautiful places in Asia that worth visiting with even lower cost? In this post, I’m going to share the most underrated places to travel in Asia!
The most underrated places to travel in Asia — in my opinion — is Sri Lanka! This country is very beautiful and the people are genuinely nice. If you don’t know where Sri Lanka is, it’s an island located in the Indian Ocean. As you can imagine, the beaches are very nice — and clean! Because there are not that many tourists, yet, the beaches are very clean, so you can actually enjoy a proper beach. The weather is lovely, and the food is nice. The natural beauty of Sri Lanka is on the top of the list. If you like nature, then you should definitely visit Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka is good for people that want to get away from the city life for a while. The natural landscape in Sri Lanka is very refreshing. The best part is, it’s very cheap to travel to Sri Lanka. You’re most likely spend less than $40 a day.
Another underestimated places to travel in Asia is Cambodia. Cambodia is a country in South East Asia, to be precise, it’s located next to Thailand. Again, the beaches in Cambodia is very clean. If you like History, you should visit Cambodia, because this country is rich in history. There are many beautiful temples in Cambodia, that surely worth visiting! Angkor Wat (one of the temples in Cambodia) is protected under the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Moreover, the living cost in Cambodia is very cheap. Accommodation could cost as cheap as $4, and if you like a luxury lifestyle, you can get a luxury apartment for around $30! It’s very cheap compared to other South-East Asian countries like Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, etc. So I would recommend visiting Cambodia because honestly, you’ve got nothing to lose!
Myanmar is another country located in South East Asia. Just like Cambodia, Myanmar is located next to Thailand, but on the north side of Thailand. If you like learning and experiencing a new culture, you should go to Myanmar. The culture is authentic and original, it has not been contaminated by other culture (if you know what I mean). Moreover, the country has lots of delicious street food, stunning beaches and remarkable pagodas. If you’re a digital nomad, there are some nice working spaces that included WiFi. The budget to travel Myanmar is around $60 a day, so honestly, it is worth visiting!
