If we are already in the new year, it is time to make plans for all the holidays we want to have in the next 12 months. Because there are more and more prices going up, and the holidays are getting more and more expensive, we thought it would be the perfect time to recommend a few cities and countries to visit in 2022, which are also cheap. So here are the cheapest cities and countries to visit in 2022.
If you were planning to go on holiday to Paris, but the city does not fit within your budget, a suitable choice would be Paris of the East, as the city of Budapest is also called. Hungary is generally a fairly cheap country, and Budapest is a splendid city. You have two strong reasons to add Budapest to the list of cities for this year’s holidays. So why do we recommend visiting Budapest?
Because it is the ideal city to show you what the European current truly means, it is a city full of tourists due to the relatively low prices, the architecture is more than wonderful, and you will not get bored. The most appreciated things in Budapest are the history and the fact that it blends very well with the architecture and design of the whole city. Even if you want to go to the casino, you will have a lot of options to choose from.
Just to give you an average, you will need about $40 to visit Budapest. We calculated this amount, taking into account the obvious accommodation in the hostel, the main meals and the visit of at least one tourist attraction per day.
For those in search of true cultural proof, Istanbul is your next destination, ifyou want to experience architectural and cultural shock. What you should consider for your holiday in Istanbul is to fully enjoy the traditional cuisine that Turkey has to offer to all tourists. If you get the chance, try some traditional dishes. We are sure you will be impressed.
If you are interested in the cost of a single day in Istanbul, most tourists spend, on average, about $73 (or 805 Turkish lira). You can spend even more, but also less, depending on how you get your food and how you organise your sightseeing. If we are talking about tourist attractions, the most important of them are Hagia Sophia Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque, Suleymaniye Mosque, or going shopping in the Bazaar.
As we move from one city to another, we see smaller or larger budget changes. For Valletta, you will need at least $130 a day to have a special vacation. What you will need to do as soon as you arrive in Valletta is to take advantage of one of the biggest attractions in this city. Fortifications are present all over the city, and you will be able to take advantage of them to make an excellent tour of Valletta.
Historically, you will see that the city is closely linked to the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem. This historical baggage can be seen everywhere in the city, but especially in popular tourist attractions.
The way Valletta was built is a very interesting thing. The architecture is very modern, and all the details of this city have been specially designed to create an absolute balance. This balance must provide a pleasant living environment for residents, but also tourists. The construction of certain sectors of the city has even raised the issue of air circulation.
Haven’t set your list of destinations for this year yet? One of the very good ideas I’ve heard about recently is visiting Ukraine. We recommend that you go directly to the capital, Kyiv, to have a complete experience. Did you know that Vital Klitschko is now the mayor of Kyiv? Want to see what a city under the control of a boxing fighter looks like? What else could be better than this?
Ukraine is the largest country in Europe and is also the place where people usually go to see Chernobyl. If you have time, you should visit St. Sophia Cathedral, eat a healthy portion of borscht, and visit the Odessa Opera, which is a must-see.
Spain is a country with a very high level of culture. Here you will be able to see what the Latin culture looks like, what very extroverted people have to say, and how they treat social problems. From this point of view, they are very free and treat socialisation very carefully. Spaniards are people who care about their health and are very hospitable.
If you want to have the best experience in Spain, you should go to Barcelona or Madrid. The average cost for a day in Barcelona is 122 euros. Considering the costs, you will end up paying even more if you want to be accommodated at the hotel or if you travel as a couple.
What is very attractive about Georgia is that most tourists who are passionate about travelling do not go to Georgia because it is not a very popular destination. But that is exactly what makes this country worthwhile. To get to Georgia, you have to fly from Istanbul to Tbilisi. Georgia is a country known for its fine wine, church architecture, and monasteries.
Georgia is a fairly cheap destination and you will be able to visit and live there every day for about $25.
If you want to see quality landscapes and architecture, you will have to go to Georgia or Budapest, but if you want culture, the perfect destinations are Barcelona or Istanbul. Pleasant trip!
