Tips on How to Enjoy a Budget-holiday in Asia

By Aanchal Gupta Subscribe to RSS | May 25th 2012 | Views:

Asia, the largest contingent on this earth, is home to a number of tourism attractions, and attracts backpackers from different corners of the globe. The best thing about holidaying in Asia is that it’s quite affordable to wander round. From food to accommodation, and several recreational activities are quite cheap as compared to Western countries. However, it’s quite imperative to plan the trip properly and avoid too much money without thinking.

Here’re some tips on how to enjoy a holiday on budget.


We spend a large proportion of our travel budget on accommodation. So you must be choosy and deliberate, when it comes to decide for accommodation. Wherever you go, you will find multiple choices of accommodations – from pricey hotels & resorts to budget-friendly inns and hostels. So before finalizing any option, you should consider your requirements and budget. Choose to stay in a hostel instead of rooms in 5-star hotels and resorts. Private homes and vacation rentals are also great choice if you’re with family or friends. You can stay in a bed & breakfast hotel, and save considerable amount of money during your holiday.

Book your accommodation well ahead to get best price. During peak seasons, most of hotels increase their tariff, so it’s better to reserve your space in advance.

Food & Drink

No matter whether you’re on a Singapore holiday or at Thailand tour, you will have plenty of options for dining. They range from exclusive restaurants to street-side food stalls. So instead of wasting too much money on meals at hi-fi restaurants, eat at food stalls or buy it from local food vendors. They are basically everywhere in Asia. You can ask the staff at your guesthouse about where you can find good food at reasonable rates. They will surely suggest you the one or more. However, avoid taking unhygienic food, because it may cause of some health problem that may spoil your whole trip. If you live in a vacation rental, prepare you meals by your own to save a good amount of money.


Carry a map and use local transportation. In case you hire a taxi, you should consider asking your guesthouse staff for cheap options. Almost every big city in Asia has metro connectivity, so use this mode of transportation, which safe, enjoyable and scam-free. To enjoy natural sightseeing, what can be a better and cheaper way than hiring a cycle?

Apart from that, avoid money exchange at airport or private agencies. Go to bank where you can get the best exchange rate. Go for cheap shopping instead of purchasing at big shopping arcades. And, bargaining is the key to save good money during shopping.

Today, a number of budget packages are available for each and every tourist destination in Asia. Search online and find a deal that suits your budget. However, dealing with a reliable source is highly important.
