This city has the twin advantage of being more relaxed and cheaper than most other around. The souks in Essaouira are less noisy and easy to navigate without the help of a guide, stroll along the narrow alleyways of your choice. Bicycles are available for hire if you fancy a stroll around the town.

The Ramparts and the port are also impressive to watch, especially as they are on cliffs. The beaches are long, and the windy waters are ideal for surfing.

Munnar, India

While there are so many places to explore in the great expanse of India, few offer the delights of Munnar. The breathtaking views of sprawling green tea fields are delightfully inspirational in Munnar in India. You will see, smell and experience a different kind of holiday in Kerala ‘Gods own country’. Kundale Tea plantations surround a tranquil picturesque lake; you can enjoy farming activities going on in Munnar and taste fresh tea from the farms all in a budget.

The sites in Munnar are spectacular, lush green forests, misty hills and wildlife. The Eravikulam National Park in the Western Ghats is home to some of the rarest forms of wildlife in the world like the Nigir Tahr among others.

Here, you have the opportunity to indulge in a simple life: eating delicious local food, staying in humble accommodation (hotels in Munnar are great value), and experiencing local Indian hospitality. Try trekking around the area for a more intimate, yet cost-effective experience.

Lake District, UK

Touring the UK can be such an expensive affair but you can cut off the costs by avoiding the peak seasons. Take in the beauty of the Lake District affordably: the rugged Roman forts, sandy beaches and the numerous lakes are free in the Lake District.

If you get a good map you can tour the Lake District on your own, take in the beauty of Kirkstone Pass, the highest road pass in the District that connects the Windermere shores with Ullswater. This is also a suitable camping site with interesting activities such as fishing and canoeing. Enjoy fresh fish from the Lakes! Trekking, biking, and other activity based tourist activities are aplenty to keep you busy if you want to be.

Choose the cheaper accommodations (bed and breakfasts in the Lake District are great value and ten a penny), or try mid-range accommodation if travelling with children.

Also, visit the Lake District in spring when the colors are at their best, it’s less crowded which means less expenditure.

Many writers and artists have been deeply inspired here; you too will have the experience of a lifetime!
