Here's the best cheap countries to visit in Asia!Singapore is my favourite budget destination in Asia. The food is one of the main highlights, and it's also wallet friendly. You can buy soy sauce chicken rice at , a Michelin meal, for SGD. Yes, a Michelin meal! For more delicious, and affordable street food, you can visit the other hawker centres.There are a lot of free things to do in Singapore like visiting the beautiful Gardens By The Bay and Singapore Botanic Gardens, enjoying a light show at Marina Bay, going for a Treetop Walk at MacRitchie Reservoir, and exploring Fort Canning Park. The Singapore Zoo, including Night Safari and River Safari, is also a popular and not-to-be-missed attraction.Last year, I spent six months traveling throughout Southeast Asia. Three of those months were spent solo traveling Vietnam. That's why I can say with absolute certainty that Vietnam is easily one of my favorite budget travel destinations in Asia.Whether you're exploring the beautiful beaches of Da Nang, the fascinating history of Ho Chi Minh City, the historic buildings of Hoi An, or the old imperial capital of Hue, you'll always find reasonably priced hotels, cheap street food, and a wealth of fun, totally free things to do. I mean, I stayed at the exquisitely decorated Boutique Hotel in Da Nang. A price that is absolutely astounding when you realize that my hotel was a quick 10-minute walk away from the beach, including an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet, and featured impeccable service from warm and friendly staff members.However, if you’re looking for some slightly more cultural experiences, then head to the vibrant and fast-paced, Ho Chi Minh City in the south. Here, you can try delicious pho at Pho Quynh, shop for some great deals at Ben Thanh Market, explore the vibrant yellow interior of the Saigon Post Office, walk down the book street (Nguyen Van Binh street), marvel at the bright pink-hued beauty of Tan Dinh Church, and visit the city’s very own, Notre Dame Cathedral. Although, a visit to the War Remnants Museum is an essential part of any visit to Ho Chi Minh since it provides a detailed history of and heart breaking look at the devastating consequences of the Vietnam War. I would also highly recommend taking a day trip to the Cu Chi Tunnels, where you can see exactly how the North Vietnamese used underground tunnels to fight against the South Vietnamese and the United States.But, if Ho Chi Minh City is a little too hot and humid for you, you can always go north, to the city of Hanoi. Here, you’ll find a wealth of exciting and fun, free things to do. Now, after ordering a delicious egg coffee from Café Dinh, you can watch the train roll through at train street, say hi to Uncle Ho (AKA Ho Chi Minh) at Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum, take a scenic walk along West Lake, learn about Hanoi’s scholarly past at the Temple of Literature, take a scenic walk through the various themed streets of Hanoi’s Old Quarter, try Bahn Mi (a local Vietnamese sandwich) at Bahn Mi 25, and learn about the history of the Vietnam War at Hoa Lo Prison (AKA the Hanoi Hilton). While you’re here, you can also enjoy some of the well-appointed rooms at the Hanoi Evergreen Hotel, where rooms start at just $12 per night.
