There are plenty of places in this world to visit, and plenty that will make your cash run dry quickly. But here are five places you could travel for less than £10 per day. Including everything accommodation, food, drink and basic transport. So if you want to see the world, but don't have a lot to spend, these could be the perfect places for you.
Cambodia- Cambodia is incredibly cheap, you can get beds for less than £1 per night, you can get your own private room for a less than £5. Food is even cheaper, you can get incredible local meals for less than £1. Transport is also really cheap, especially when using buses, you can easily get from place to place for under £10 and it's not like you're going to be moving on every day. You can even pick up beer here for less than 50p. So if you're looking for a cheap getaway and the chance to explore Asia, Cambodia is a great choice.
Vietnam- Vietnam, has very similar prices to Cambodia, it's probably a little more expensive but you can still get by quite easily on £10 per day. You can get beds in hostels for as little as £2-£3. Food is also really cheap. To be honest, street food in the whole of south east Asia is ridiculously cheap and very tasty. You can easily get a meal for under £1 anywhere in south east Asia. Transport is a little more expensive, using buses is the most popular choice. But if getting overnight buses, this still saves you on accommodation and most journeys will cost you less than £10. Again alcohol is ridiculously cheap here. In Hoi An we ended up paying £3.50 for all you could drink, so getting by on £10 a day is quite easy.

India- India is another really cheap place to visit. Also allowing you to get away from the south east Asia scene a little bit, and experience something a little different. It does depend where exactly you go in India as to how cheap it will be, but most places you can get by on under £10. Food in India is incredibly delicious, and very cheap, Again your average meal will cost you under £2 with a drink, and in some places in New Delhi, we paid less than £1 for two people. Beer is a little more expensive here, but you can pick up beers in local shops for £1. Transport is also really cheap, you can decide to get trains or buses, trains are usually the cheaper and better option. A five hour journey will cost you around £4, usually with a meal included, buses may cost more. Hostels are also really cheap, and usually include breakfast, most hostels here are under £4 a night.

Bali- Another country in Asia, and again really cheap to travel. It's a little more expensive than Vietnam and Cambodia but still pretty cheap. This is a really small island making up Indonesia, and is really incredible. Because the island is so small getting around is really affordable, because the distances are not so far to cover, when going from one place to the next. You can get meals here in most restaurants for under £2.50 and hostels cost around £5 per night. Beer here is also really cheap costing less than 50p in most shops or liquor stores, obviously if drinking out it will cost more.

Eastern Europe (Romania, Bulgaria, Ukraine)- Far eastern europe is another really cheap place to travel and nothing like the cost of travelling western Europe. You can get hostels for less than £4 per night in most cities. Food in an inexpensive restaurant will cost you around £3 and a pint of beer will cost you around £1 in a bar or pub. Again the cheapest way to travel would be by bus or train and it shouldn't cost you a lot to move from city to city.
If you are really wanting to travel for under £10 per day, i would recommend eating out just one meal per day, you could always go to local markets and buy food and make your own, particularly in eastern europe, where eating out is a little more expensive, in asia it doesn't matter as eating out is so cheap anyway. Go to the supermarkets and make your lunch rather than eating out every day, this will save you a significant amount of money. Also if you are not drinking alcohol, this will cut your budget even more, but most travelers rarely cut this expense, and with beers for as little as 50p, why would you. Of course you can take more money to these countries and have a little more luxury. But it is more than possible to travel these places for under £10 per day and have an incredible experience.
