ThailandThailand is one of the most obvious choices for budget travelling among travellers. Not only the country has both nature and concrete jungle, but the local food is also extremely mouth-watering.Furthermore, the cost for travel accommodations such as air tickets, transportation and hotels are usually below RM1000. What attracts travellers most are the local natural scenery, the temples and the local's unique culture.Make sure not to miss any of those out in your travel itinerary!2. IndonesiaHaving a similar national language, Malaysian travellers have no problem communicating with the locals. Indonesia has a lot to offer as it is also a country rich in culture and nature. The Indonesian islands attract most visitors throughout the year, especially the well-known Bali Island. Not to mention the cost of travel is about the same as in Malaysia. So there is no need to worry about overspending.3. PhilippinesHaving tropical weather all year, the Philippines has low travel costs and a slow-paced livelihood. This makes it the perfect destination for holiday relief. Famous for having tons of islands, this country offers many extreme water sports activities as well. With beautiful breathtaking sceneries and long beaches, the Philippines is a great place to recharge. 4. CambodiaCambodia is an ancient civilisation with a great deal of history.

NepalLocated between Tibet and India, Nepal will be highly loved by mountain climbing enthusiasts as the country has the Himalayas as the main attraction. A single apartment here only costs about 90USD per month, and the Internet only needs 20USD per month, which is definitely one of the most popular attractions as well.6. MyanmarPreviously known as Burma, Myanmar is well-known to have awe-inspiring sunsets. The best view can be seen in Bagan. Having over 25 square kilometres of land which are crowded with more than 2,000 stupas, Bagan is also a really cultural place for a vacation. Furthermore, during the hot-air-balloon season, the rise of hot air balloons will give visitors an extraordinary sunset experience of a lifetime. 7.

It still attracts the attention of tourists from all over the world. Besides that, renting a small room for one is only about 200USD per month. What more is that you only spend very little when travelling in India, even on food and travel expenses. So what are you waiting for? Grap your backpack and bring along your friends on an epic trip! 8. MalaysiaIf the above destinations are still too burdensome for you, why not have a local holiday with "Cuti-Cuti Malaysia"? Malaysia is known for its cheap travel expenses. Roti canai, nasi lemak and a lot of local food can be found just under RM5. To say our country is big, it is not big at all, and to say our country is small, it is not small either. Let's all finish exploring our own country first before venturing overseas.
