We have put our heads together and came up with our ultimate list of 7 inexpensive to travel around the world so simply stick to us and we will show you.


1 Egypt

We all know that whenever you get to hear about Egypt the first thing comes into mind is The Pyramids, but the thing is that the country is much more than that. All the way from Cairo – Giza, Luxor – Alexandria there are tons of cultural treasures, which Egypt possesses from centuries.

Some major points to be noted also includes sailing the Nile River or the cruise, leering the culture in modern day Cairo, exploring the great Pyramid in Giza or taking a camel ride.

In simple words there are countless words to explore, such as the Temple Complex of Abu Simbel, the Temple of Karnak and the Temple of Hathor at Dendera all of the above-mentioned ones are the top rated attractions on Trip Advisor.

For Egypt tourism is a leading source of income and the one that is growing largely as well. 8 million tourists has visited Egypt in the year of 2017, according to The Telegraph that’s up 2.74 million from the prior year.

Many tourists means lots of competition for your money. For a reasonable room you might have to pay up to $10 – $30 to pay for a meal for 2 people approximately around $5, and that’s what Lonely Planet says.

The only place where you may not be able to save much money is airfare because a typical air ticket costs you $1000 or more for a round trip from US to Cairo.

The thing you SHOULD keep in mind is that there are some areas in Egypt that US State Department recommends avoiding, which also includes the Sinai Peninsula and the Western Desert due to terrorism; also, you should avoid the border areas due to military actions.
