Everybody wants to visit Asia. The continent is famous for holding onto their roots and having unique and interesting cultures which set them apart from their western counterparts. Of course, travelling is not cheap and some Asian countries can leave a pretty huge dent on your wallet. Singapore for one can be very expensive if you wish to travel on a budget. Accommodation in Hong Kong can take away a huge amount of your travel funds. So keeping this in mind when it comes to travelling on a budget and getting an experience of a lifetime the only country that actually would be worth it is South Asia’s largest nation India.

You Have A Range Of Affordable Accommodation

And this is no matter where you go. No matter what city you choose to travel to, you can find cheap but good accommodation for a fraction of cost in any other country. You can get a bedroom with an attached washroom, air conditioning and other facilities for less than 50 AUD. In less urban towns you can get them for even 20 AUD per night. And amazing budget-friendly accommodations can be found virtually everywhere in India. If you don’t fancy a room you can always check into a hostel or even a capsule hotel for even less money. By using some websites you could get last minute deals too.

Public Transportation And Tours Are  Very Affordable

If you fancy making your own itinerary and travelling between Cities you can do so in India for very little cost. Public transportation is cheap. With intercity trains costing you just a dollar.
