136 tourist cities ranked by value for money

October 27, 2016 Headline News No Comments Print Print Email Email

Which are the best-value cities for tourists, in terms of what travellers can buy for their money? A travel pricing company has just drawn up a list of 136 cities.

Price of Travel (priceoftravel.com) is based in the US. Its database of travel costs in every major destination around the world started in 2010. It’s targeted at backpackers and budget travellers but applies to many other travellers.

The site now features over 200 cities, with information for each listing accommodation, transportation, attraction, food, and drink prices.

For each city this daily total includes:

  • A dorm bed at a good and cheap hostel
  • 3 budget meals
  • 2 public transportation rides
  • 1 paid cultural attraction
  • 3 cheap beers (as an “entertainment fund”)

As the site points out, Asia (as always) is home to most of the world’s best travel bargains. Vietnam is a big bargain. Even Asia’s most expensive cities (Tokyo and Singapore) are close to the centre of this list of 136 cities (the centre being 68). Sydney and Melbourne rank 105 and 106 respectively, making them pretty expensive on world standards.

The totals below are in US dollars, arranged in descending order (from cheapest to most expensive) and re-ranked daily.http://www.seychelles.travel/
