Zero-Tourist Bali: How to Enjoy Indonesia's Hottest Island on a Budget

Known around the world as a stunning tourism destination for both mega-rich millionaires and low-budget tourists, Bali is a truly enchanting island. With incredible native wildlife, beautiful beaches, and a year-round tropical climate, the island is one that's been attracting visitors for hundreds of years, with no signs of slowing down.

But despite its obvious charms, Bali does have one major disadvantage for visitors – it's very much discovered. While postcards from the island may reveal empty beaches and incredible sunsets, it's a rare sight to see a Bali beach with anything less than one hundred tourists sunbathing on its sands. A decades-long promotional effort, combined with word of mouth, has made the island one of the most visited destinations in the world.

5 World Class Budget Surf Destinations

When most people think of surfing, they think of the world's top big wave destinations – the shores of Hawaii, the lengthy beaches of Southern California, and Australia's Gold Coast. These luxurious surf destinations are the ones that constantly pop up on TV, in magazines, and as the stage for some of the world's most esteemed surf competitions.

But being popular – particularly with professional surfers – doesn't make a destination ideal for surf travelers and casual surfers. The gigantic waves of Oahu's north shore are far from ideal for newbies and intermediate surfers, while the extreme costs of the Gold Coast certainly aren't perfect for those on a shoestring budget.

Thailand on a Budget or How to Enjoy Your Thailand Vacation for $30 a Day

Thailand. Home of ancient temples, stunning beaches, and five-star luxury unknown to any of its neighbors. The Kingdom of Thailand, once known as Siam, has long been a favorite of travelers, and for good reason. With incredible eating options, immense geographical variety, and postcard quality natural beauty, it's consistently sat in the world's top ten travel destinations for many years.

But despite its reputation as one of the world's best 'bang for your buck' travel destinations, visiting Thailand isn't always a cheap experience. The country's official Tourism department, the Tourism Authority of Thailand, estimates that the average tourist spends around 3,500 baht ($110 USD) per day while vacationing in the kingdom. That's not expensive per se, but it's certainly not in line with the dirt cheap image many would-be visitors have in mind when planning their Thailand vacations.
