Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

This product was recommended by Rae Oliver from Truly Experiences

As a female student travelling solo, I was focused on three things when looking for my next holiday destination – safety, cheap booze and the chance to meet new people. In Ho Chi Minh city, I found all of these things and even more than I could imagine. The city is a feast for the senses, from the smells of mouthwatering street food to the incessant doof-doof coming from the nightclubs along Bui Vien, the city’s party street that never seems to sleep. With a decent meal setting me back just $1 and a cold Saigon Beer at my friendly hostel costing even less, Ho Chi Minh has to be one of the best places to travel as a student.

A beautiful, mind refreshing, and nearest to nature place that a student can freely travel with little money. Astonishingly, in Bali, you can easily find luxurious accommodation for around $ 20 to $ 50 a night.

South Carolina

This product was recommended by Katie Dames from Feely Feelings

While every U.S. state is beautiful, South Carolina really takes the cake. Its rich history, coupled with its beautiful nature and scenery, is truly unparalleled. From Charleston to Myrtle Beach to Hilton Head Island, there’s plenty to explore. And from many states it’s a mere road trip away, which means lower traveling costs for students.

Grand Prarie, Texas

This product was recommended by Eduardo Martinez from Rose Rock Realty

Not only do you have access to the entire downtown of Dallas texas to roam around but the biggest attraction to me is definitely Traders Village in Grand Prarie. You can find tons of awesome deals at the flea market and you can spend an entire day there just walking and looking at what people have to offer.

Oklahoma City

This is the cheapest option out of the three but if you’re into Native American or western cowboys you have to visit the National Cowboy & western heritage museum. The museum also has a little replica western town from back in the day in the museum. once your done with the museum you can go down Route 66 and visit iconic places like pops and arcadias round barn.

Andalusia, Spain

This product was recommended by Patricia Palacios from España Guide

The region of Andalusia in southern Spain is a fantastic destination for students and people on a budget. The airports of both Seville and Malaga are served by many low-cost airlines and traveling within the region by either bus or train is very affordable. Accommodation is also cheaper than pretty much anywhere else in Europe. And the same goes for food. In some places, such as Granada, you will get one free tapa for each drink you order.

Andalusia is home to a very diverse cultural offer. For example, the Alhambra Palace in Granada, the Great Mosque of Cordoba and the Royal Alcazar in Seville are all great examples of the region’s Moorish heritage. With over 300 sunny days per year, the Andalusian coast boasts some of the best weather in all of Europe and plenty gorgeous beaches to make the most of it. From the bustling/lively Costa del Sol to the secluded beaches of the Cabo de Gata Nature Park in Almería, there are beaches for everyone in Andalusia.

The great berlin wall used to stand between East and germany that used to seperate a shady neighbourhood of east germany from the modernised neighbourhood of west germany. Even if today a student will stand on the eastern side and look at the west, it still ricochet the same scenery. Offices and restaurants on the west and shady looking neighbourhood in the east but the remaining part of the berlin wall now reflects the artistry of the street artists of berlin.

Montenegro is one of the smallest countries in Europe, but also one that is the most biodiverse. One word to describe Montenegro is versatile. In just one day you can hike the mountains and swim in the Adriatic Sea. Northern Montenegro is one of the most unexplored areas in Europe where hiking is spectacular. As an up and coming place, Montenegro is still one of the most affordable countries in Europe – on average you can expect to pay about 30 euros per day for a private apartment or a cottage, 5 euros per meal, and public transport can get you almost anywhere.

Bulgaria is a student’s paradise. Delicious food, beautiful nature and best of all – everything is half the price it would be in the US. The country’s rich history is bound to keep you intrigued and the diverse landscape it’s home to – from great mountain ranges to sandy beaches – makes it a great destination for any time of the year. There are a lot of low-cost airline tickets that can get you to Sofia, the capital, from pretty much any major European capital. The prices can go as low as 30 euro for a round trip ticket – if that doesn’t convince you, I don’t know what will.

Madrid, Spain

This product was recommended by Christian Antonoff from Heartifb

The Spanish capital is a cosmopolitan city, busting with life. The city offered much to a hungry soul like me in terms of culture and entertainment. Art students could dive into The Prado and Reina Sofia museums.The first has a magnificent collection of classical paintings, and the second appeals to connoisseurs of modern art.

Throughout the city, there are small places where people can try one of the local specialties – churros con chocolate – sugary, deep-fried dough sticks served with hot chocolate. They are not just ridiculously cheap, but also very tasty. Another place to visit worth mentioning is the Plaza Mayor square. Madrid’s main square holds centuries of history, and it has seen everything from coronations to bullfights.

I remember that when I visited the place, it was full of young people and tourists. I used to go there often, especially after a pub crawl, to eat the other famous local delicacy – bocadillo de calamares (or the calamari sandwich) – at one of the local bars. The bocadillo is a cheap, greasy, and simple sandwich, perfect for students for no money, or drunks with midnight food cravings. If you’re a fan of nature and long walks, then I’d suggest a stroll in the Retiro Park.

It has mile-long alleys surrounded by tall trees and exotic plants. The park offers a breath of fresh air from Madrid’s busy life. It’s perfect for when you want to clear your mind, or go on a date.

Budapest, the capital of Hungary and considered by many to be the Paris of the East, is one of the most culturally important metropolises in Eastern Europe, and is home to numerous UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Budapest is famous for its thermal springs, some of which have been used for therapeutic purposes since prehistory.

In fact, Budapest has so many things to do that you’ll want to spend at least a few days exploring this dynamic city. Budapest’s St. Stephen’s Basilica is a popular attraction for its impressive architecture. Another of Budapest’s most striking features is the panoramic Gellért Hill, a 235-meter block of dolomite that falls steeply down to the Danube. Make sure to go to this place in your student life.
