Vietnam is often underrated; of course, there is a concern about tourism in Sapa and Ha Long Bay, but these are just two sites within this huge country.

For adventure enthusiasts, you can visit Phong Nha that houses some of the largest caves in the world. Despite an economic boom, Vietnam is ridiculously cheap.

The Baltic States is over overlooked on the European travel trails that lie between the Nordic countries and Russia. The country’s vibe is a mix of Slavic Europe and Scandinavian cool — but at around just a third the cost. Baltics may remind you of Finland with its many woodlands, peat bogs, lakes, and log cabins painted in deep red. Those who say Estonia is expensive probably have visited only the half-square-kilometer old center of Tallinn with its inflated tourist prices. Anywhere else, you can book a room for 30-40 euros per night and dinner for less than 7euro.
Georgia, a small country in the Caucasus, is still not very famous but is booming in recent years. It is an amazing destination and is easy to travel in, and very easy on the wallet too. You will instantly fall in love with this country. Your trip starts in the eccentric capital of Tbilisi, where crumbling fasciae of traditional wooden Georgian houses stand next to Soviet-era architecture and daring contemporary designs. The country is a bit of crazy architectural jumble, yet it gives incredible energy that will undoubtedly make you want to stay longer. Here, you can explore the spectacular Caucasian Mountain Range, dip in the Black Sea, and visit ancient hilltop monasteries (and a few of them inside caves) all over the country.
Argentina’s economy has seen more ups and downs than a yo-yo. But for foreign travelers with western currency, the country is ridiculously cheap. You will get a hostel dorm bed in the capital of the country at the cost as little as 7USD per night, with basic private rooms from about $25. Some of the prices in the country are similar to that of Southeast Asia, while the development level is similar to Europe or North America. And, obviously, Argentina is a delightful country to travel to. The country has some of the most epic waterfalls, and great places to explore. Don’t forget to visit the Patagonia Mountain range in the far south and renowned for its snowy peaks at Torres del Paine and the chance to see penguins and whales.
