Backpacking can be interpreted as a way to travel with less spending. This can be done by choosing the cheaper accommodation, the transport fare, and the food. In doing that, keep staying healthy and comfortable. Selective spending at tourist destinations is also a basic consideration on backpacking. In the last few decades, the cost of transports and accommodation has become more affordable. Some country even gives free visas cost to attract tourist to visit.
Backpacking reduces your accommodation costs. Staying at a cheaper place is possible nowadays. The generally safer state of the world, the level of awareness and willingness of local communities to accept immigrants become a decisive factor. The increasing number of entrepreneurs engaged in the provision of lodging places is also a key factor.
In some of the world’s tourist destinations, it is easy for backpackers to find cheap accommodations. Tourists are becoming familiar with the Poppies Alley on Bali Island and District 1 Ho Chi city in Vietnam. There are many cheaper but comfortable places to stay overnight. Guidance to find cheap dormitory and hostel-class accommodation is also widely available. For backpackers who love to enjoy the outdoors, some tourist destinations also provide dome tents for rent.
Want to eat full, healthy with low price? Look for the stalls that provide local food menu. One way to recognize a stall at a low price is to ask the middle-class workers. Believe me, this trick works enough.
Backpacking reduces your transport costs. Inexpensive transportation mode has also been widely available. Tourists can rent a motorbike, a car, or a bicycle during their trip. Another option is using a local public transport, or by buying a certain package of transport for a few days. Renting a motorbike, in my opinion, is the best option for backpackers. But don’t forget to bring your driving license. In addition to low fuel consumption, you can freely stop by at some places along the way you pass. This will be hard to do if you buy a package of local transportation costs or use public transport.
