22 Cheapest Asian Countries to Visit in 2022 - Laure Wanders (2023)

With its 48 countries, Asia is the largest continent in the world, and it’s also my favourite. This continent is home to some of the world’s friendliest people, tons of beautiful landmarks, interesting cultures, and delicious food. Although not all Asian countries are cheap (think about Bhutan, Japan, or Singapore), Asia has got plenty of budget-friendly destinations too. If you’re looking for some of the cheapest Asian countries to visit on your next trip, you’ve come to the right place!

This guide contains some of the best budget destinations in Asia, from popular destinations like Thailand to more off the beaten path countries like Bangladesh and Kazakhstan. Although some of the countries in this list may be slightly more expensive than others, they’re all pretty cheap compared to Europe or North America.

Disclaimer: The daily budget, hostel prices, and meal prices listed in this post are for solo backpackers travelling on a shoestring budget. How much you will spend entirely depends on your personal travel style and the activities you want to do.

22 Cheap Countries to Visit in Asia

Southeast Asia

22 Cheapest Asian Countries to Visit in 2022 - Laure Wanders (1)

1. Indonesia

Indonesia is one of these incredibly varied destinations I just can’t get enough of. With over 17.000 islands, you could easily spend a lifetime exploring this country alone.

Every island is different and there are more than 300 ethnic groups in the country, each with their own culture and traditions. But you’ll also find lush green forests, picture-perfect beaches, beautiful volcanoes, and much more here. And the best part is that Indonesia is one of the most affordable countries in Asia.

It’s good to know, however, that some islands are cheaper than others. Bali, for example, is one of the most popular – and more expensive – Indonesian islands. Sumatra and Java on the other hand are some of the cheaper ones.

2. Vietnam

With mesmerizing sights like Ha Long Bay, Ban Gioc Waterfall, the province of Hà Giang and its hills, and many, many more, Vietnam is one of the top destinations in Asia.

This country is known for its delicious food, mesmerizing landscapes, vibrant culture, and some of the most beautiful caves in the world. It’s a place where you’ll be able to visit sacred temples one day, then see the remnants of the Vietnam War and learn more about its history the next.

As Vietnam is also one of the cheapest countries in Asia, it’s the perfect place to head to if you’re looking for an affordable destination with an abundance of places to explore.

3. Cambodia

When mentioning Cambodia, many people will immediately think about Angkor Wat, the largest and oldest religious monument in the world. Watching the sunrise at this immense temple complex is one of these bucket list travel experiences you can’t miss when you’re visiting this country.

But there’s more to Cambodia than Angkor Wat alone. This country is also the perfect place to explore vibrant cities, go diving, relax at the beach, try delicious food and learn more about culture and history.

Cambodia is cheaper than its neighbours Vietnam and Thailand, making it one of the cheapest destinations in Southeast Asia.

4. Laos

Laos is known for being one of Asia’s most relaxed and laidback destinations. It’s an authentic country with colourful temples, French colonial architecture, and breathtaking landscapes.

Here, you’ll truly feel as if you were stepping back in time. You’ll get to soak up the country’s rich traditions and savour some of the world’s best food.

From Khone Pabeng, Southeast Asia’s largest waterfall to the city of Luang Prabang with its former royal palaces – Laos is a budget-friendly destination that will astonish you. It’s the perfect place to go if you’re looking for a cheap Southeast Asian destination that isn’t packed with tourists.

Prices here are pretty similar to, yet slightly cheaper than in neighbouring Cambodia.

5. Myanmar (Burma)

Ah, Myanmar – one of my favourite destinations in the world! This country’s landscapes are filled with temples and gilded pagodas, and the Burmese are some of the most smiling people in the world. From the beautiful temples of Bagan to the mountains and caves of Hpa An, Myanmar is a country that simply doesn’t disappoint.

The thing I love the most about this country is its authenticity. Myanmar has only been opening up to tourists recently and hasn’t much been influenced by the globalised world yet.

Although Myanmar is still very affordable, prices here have increased over the years, especially when it comes to accommodation.

This being said, Myanmar has a turbulent history and as of February 2021, the military has seized control over the country. Massive protests have taken place since then. Because of that, it’s unclear when travelling to Myanmar will be possible again.

6. Thailand

Often nicknamed ‘The Land of Smiles’, Thailand may just be the most popular stop along the Southeast Asia backpacking route. This country is known for its glorious beaches, glittering temples, lush green jungle, and delicious cuisine.

It’s a destination that’s easy to travel through and has something to offer to nearly any type of traveller, whether you’re looking for a crazy bucket list adventure, a lazy beach holiday, or an all-in vacation.

Although Thailand remains one of the cheapest Asian countries to visit, the cost of travelling here did increase over the years and the Kingdom is slightly more expensive than its neighbours Myanmar, Cambodia, and Laos. It’s also good to know that the north of Thailand is cheaper than the south.

7. The Philippines

If diving, snorkelling, and island hopping sound like your kind of holiday, then The Philippines should be on top of your travel bucket list. This country is home to over 7.000 islands full of tropical white-sand beaches, palm trees, and blue lagoons.

And there’s more – swimming in waterfalls, climbing volcanoes, admiring the colonial architecture, and visiting rice terraces are just a few of the other highlights of The Philippines.

This country is a bit more expensive than other Southeast Asian destinations but still very affordable compared to Western countries.

8. Malaysia

Malaysia is one of the most developed countries in Southeast Asia. It’s also a very diverse destination with towering skyscrapers, countless temples and mosques, stunning nature, beautiful beaches, and amazing wildlife.

Although a lot of visitors will spend most of their time in Kuala Lumpur, the capital, Malaysia has got much more to offer. From scuba diving and jungle trekking to visiting the famous Batu Caves, this country doesn’t lack activities.

On top of that, Malaysia is one of the cheapest Asian countries to visit (unless when it comes to drinking alcohol, which is pretty expensive) and quite contrary to what many people think, Malaysia is Cheaper than Thailand.

9. Nepal

Beautiful Nepal is another of my favourite countries in the world and also one of these very affordable countries to travel to.

With its vibrant culture, lush green jungles, and stunning Himalaya Mountains, this country has got a lot to offer. If you’re an adventurous type of traveller who also enjoys learning about different cultures, you will LOVE Nepal. Another thing that makes this country wonderful is that theNepali are renowned for being some of the most friendly and hospitable people in the world – which I can confirm.

When visiting Nepal on a budget, it’s good to know that it is possible to hike and trek in the Himalayas without spending a fortune on a guide. However, this is not recommended for all treks, so it’s advisable to do some research in advance.

10. India

With places like the Taj Mahal, Kashmir, Goa and Jaipur, India is one of the top travel destinations in the world. The country is not only packed with beautiful places, but it also offers a lot of variation. Not every country offers the possibility to combine mountains, deserts, beaches, jungles, and cities in one trip, after all.

One of the things India is best known for is its incredibly rich culture. It was here that Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, and other religions were born. So if cultural or spiritual travel is your thing, India should be on top of your list.

When it comes to the cost of travel in India, it’s good to know that the south of the country is slightly more expensive (and touristy) than the north. Still, India is one of the cheapest countries on this list.

11. Sri Lanka

Often nicknamed ‘The Teardrop of India’, the country island of Sri Lanka is located in the Indian Ocean. It’s a very diverse destination with white sand beaches (like Mirissa on the West Coast or Arugam Bay on the East Coast), stunning national parks (think of Yala or Kumana National Park) and rich culture.

Although Sri Lanka might be small, there’s an incredible amount of things to do in this country. Whether you’re a wildlife enthusiast, adventure seeker, history buff or beach lover, Sri Lanka has got something for you. It’s one of the most affordable exotic destinations out there!

Sri Lanka is a bit more expensive than India, but it’s still a budget-friendly destination where you won’t need to worry about spending too much money.

12. Bangladesh

If you’re looking for a cheap, off the beaten path destination in Asia, then Bangladesh is the place for you. This country, bordering India and Myanmar, is often skipped by tourists, meaning you’ll probably have all the tourist sites to yourself.

Bangladesh has got a lot to offer though. With its numerous archaeological sites, large forests, beautiful beaches, and friendly locals, it’s a destination that will surely surprise you. This country is also home to the world’s longest sea beach – Cox’s Bazar – which is 120 km (74,5 mi) long.

All in all, Bangladesh is one of the cheapest Asian countries to visit and it’s perfect for those that are looking for a more off the beaten path travel destination.

13. Pakistan

Pakistan might not be the first destination to think of when you’re planning a trip to Asia, but it is stunning. With some of the highest mountain tops in the world, beautiful deserts, lush forests, and untouched beaches, this is a dream destination for nature lovers.

On the contrary to the country’s reputation, Pakistan is now safe to travel to (although it speaks for itself that you should always be cautious and use your common sense) and it is attracting more and more adventurous tourists.

Pakistan is a little cheaper than India, which makes it one of the cheapest countries on this list.

14. China

With many ancient places like the Terracotta Warriors of Xi’An, the Forbidden City of Beijing, and the infamous Great Wall, China is one of these countries you could explore for years on end because there’s so much to see.

One striking thing about China is the contrast between ancient and modern. You’ll find traditional Chinese architecture on one side of a city and hyper-modern buildings on the other side.

Keep in mind that some places are more expensive than others when you’re visiting China. Shanghai, Bejing and the autonomous region of Macau, for example, are some of the pricier destinations in the country. If you avoid these places and do some research in advance, it is possible to travel to China on a shoestring budget though.

15. Taiwan

Taiwan may be pretty small, but this island doesn’t lack beautiful places to visit or interesting things to do.

This country (which is officially called the Republic of China) is home to very diverse landscapes consisting of mountains, beaches, hot springs, waterfalls, and more. And if you’re more of a city person, you will love Taipei, the vibrant capital which is known for its modern architecture, traditional temples, and food markets.

Although Taiwan is one of the more expensive countries on this list, it’s just slightly more expensive than China and still pretty cheap compared to western standards.

16. Mongolia

Mongolia, landlocked between Russia and China, is a mountainous country with unspoilt nature and unique culture. It’s one of these beautiful, off the beaten path destinations where the tourism industry is still in its early stages.

For many travellers, one of the top experiences to have here is to stay with a nomadic family and learn about their way of life. After all, Mongolia is home to one of the last remaining traditional nomad cultures.

While it is possible to visit Mongolia independently, it’s not the easiest country to travel through if you don’t want to hire a guide or take tours. The reason for this is a lack of transportation to tourist sites. It is possible, however, to rent a jeep in Ulaanbaatar.

If you’re interested in Persian culture and history, for example, this destination will surely astonish you. On top of that, Iran is filled with natural wonders, from mountains and deserts to caves and waterfalls. All in all, Iran has got something to offer to any type of traveller, whether you’re into history, culture, art or nature.

Iran is a country that only started attracting more tourists in the last couple of years and it has been gaining popularity quickly (although the pandemic did complicate that). It’s the perfect destination for a budget-friendly holiday.

Kazakhstan is another beautiful, off the beaten path destination with plenty of hidden treasures. This former Soviet Republic is the biggest country in Central Asia.

If you enjoy spending time in nature, then this country full of canyons, mountains, lakes, and deserts is the one for you! But Kazakhstan will also astonish you if you enjoy visiting more unusual places. From the futuristic capital, Nur-Sultan to the abandoned seaport of Aralsk, this country is full of unique sights.

The best part is that Kazakhstan is one of these affordable destinations where you won’t need to worry about spending tons of money on your travels.

With places like the ship graveyard of the Aral Sea and the ghost town of Angren, Uzbekistan is another affordable destination that will delight you if you enjoy exploring more remote and unusual places.

21. Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan is a mysterious country nicknamed ‘The Land of Fire’ due to its large amount of natural gas reserves. Back in the day, gas often leaked to the surface, which resulted in spontaneous fires. Today though, most of these fires have been extinguished, and Yanar Dag is one of the few remaining natural gas fires.

But fire isn’t the only thing Azerbaijan is famous for. With its ancient temples, modern capital, mud volcanoes, and remote mountain villages, this country is quite diverse. It’s a unique destination that you will fall in love with if you enjoy travelling off the beaten path.

This little-visited country is full of stunning monasteries and churches (over 4.000 in total), vibrant cities, and incredible hikes. It’s an underrated destination with plenty of things to discover.

Although Armenia may be geographically located in Asia, culturally, this country leans more towards Europe (though it has Asian influences as well).

Tips to save money while travelling in Asia

Apart from the local prices, how much money you will spend also depends on your personal travel style. Travelling on a shoestring budget mostly comes down to planning and researching your destination before heading there and avoiding expensive activities.

You’ll save a lot of money by staying in dorms, choosing street food over restaurants, and using public transportation, for example.

It’s also good to learn how to haggle and to avoid restaurants or shops near tourist attractions, as these tend to be way more expensive.

But even if you’re planning on staying in 5-star hotels and eating out every night, you still won’t spend nearly as much money in these cheap Asian countries as you would in most European countries.
