Travel Tuesday: Balling on a Budget

 There are many things people add to their bucket list. Run in a marathon, become a millionaire or even do something outrageous like jump out of an airplane. There is one thing I know for sure I want to do and that is travel. I’m sure I’m not the only one that desires to see different places and experience different cultures other than the one you live every day. 

That can sometimes be hard to achieve with daily responsibilities such as paying bills, filling the tank up in your car or living the fabulous life of a broke college student. Sometimes it feels like traveling is not accessible and we are stuck with the wander lust blues.
I’m here to tell you that traveling in possible! Here are the top 5 places you can travel to on a budget
Mumbai, India
India is a gorgeous place to visit full of beauty, culture and excitement! Being that India is a cheap country to travel to many has said it’s hard to spend more than $30 a day. Instead of staying in a fancy 5 star hotel, try staying at an affordable guest house and try the amazing cuisine India has to offer.
Shanghai, China
While China isn’t the cheapest of places to visit, it’s still affordable to compare to other countries that may be on your travel bucket list. Some of the alternative that make China such a affordable place to stay in living in a hostel which can cost you around $20 a day and the local transportation can cost you less than  dollar.
South Africa 
Cape Town, South Africa
From a personal experience of being able to travel to Cape Town, South Africa, it’s definitely a place I recommend that everyone must travel to at least once. Known for its beautiful scenic views and colorful culture, you’ll have the time of your life with a lot spending too much money. Many of the activities you can do for under $15 dollars such as visiting Table Mountain or enjoying nightlife on Long Street. 

Marrakech, Morocco

Morocco has a rich culture of markets, restaurants and mosques. Known for its mix of European, Middle Eastern and African cultures, you will have a diverse flavor of food, entertainment and fun. There are many inexpensive hotels to stay with rooms starting around $80.
Havana, Cuba
I don’t know about you but I have always wanted to visit Cuba! The food, music and culture would be worth the long flight. With so many things to do such as visiting local cafes or even catching a show at the famous Tropicana Theater, you will never have a boring day.
