4. Eastern Europe
Most of the people who plan a European vacation usually go to countries on the Western side of the continent, like The United Kingdom, France, and Italy. Unfortunately, trips to those areas can be very expensive. Some Eastern European countries like Bulgaria, Ukraine, and Romania, are destinations that you can visit on a tight budget. These countries all have the same old world appeal that their counterparts have, but because of their bad economic situations in those countries, you can live very well in those places for as little as $40 per day, which covers you room, food and entertainment.
Egypt is a country that has been a great tourist destination for a while, but the current political situation has made a lot of people wary about heading there for vacation.

Right now, you can get room, food and everything else at rock bottom prices.
Greece has always been a reasonably priced tourist destination, but since the country went bankrupt, it has become an even cheaper destination.
