About the Book
You can travel internationally, and travel well, for less than you spend each month to put a roof over your head. You just need to pick the right places. Places where a fistful of dollars will pay for weeks of hotels, train rides, and meals.

How about $4 beach bungalows? Two or three pints of beer for a dollar? Great restaurant dinners for a buck or two? Museums that cost a few cents? Here, in one location, you can find the world's best travel values.

The World's Cheapest Destinations provides a capsule overview of 21 great travel bargains, with cost information for lodging, restaurant meals, local transportation, and attractions, including "what you can get for a buck or less" in each country. From the Great Pyramids to the Taj Mahal to some of the best snorkeling and diving spots on Earth, this book will show you where to have a fantastic experience without spending a fantastic fortune.
