8 Super Fun (& Cheap) Spring Destinations

 Spring break is upon us and it’s time to figure out where to go! Some of the cheapest options available for spring travel can give you more bang for your buck as well as save that all-important beer money. If you’d like to go somewhere that won’t cost a fortune but offers an excellent return on memories, look no further. Here’s a list of eight super cheap spring destinations.

8 Super Cheap Spring Travel Destinations

1. Lisbon, Portugal

First up on our list of cheap spring travel destinations is none other than the gorgeous Lisbon! This intensely beautiful city of explorers will capture your heart the moment you ride up its steep streets in an antique tram. Cobblestones and mosaic tiles lead you to some of the city’s best watering holes, where you can taste some of the local delicacies, like a cherry liqueur in a chocolate cup. If you’re looking for cheap drinks, head up the hill to the famous Bairro Alto, where a pint costs just 1 Euro and cocktails only a little more. If you want to continue the party after the bars close, follow the crowds down to the river where the clubs and pubs stay open until dawn.


2. Tijuana, Mexico

A daring place for those with a sense of adventure, Tijuana is still the best deal on the other side of the border. Low-priced margaritas and cervezas will keep you going all night long. If the mad dash of the city isn’t really your style, grab a calafia for a couple of bucks and head on down to Rosarito. A pina colada on the sand in this beach city is second to none, and so are the views.


3. Prague, Czech Republic

If you don’t mind a lingering winter’s chill during your spring travel, head to the darkly Gothic and historic city of Prague. The food and drink here are extremely cheap, and so is the accommodation. Public transit runs for 24 hours, so you’ll be able to find your way back to your hotel regardless of the time. Prague is also famous as the city that brought back absinthe during the 1990s, but be careful with this potent drink!



4. Bangkok, Thailand

Thailand is famous for its parties and the ability to live like a king on a standard Western wage. If you’re really looking to let your hair down in the tropics, Bangkok is your best bet. From the classy surroundings of the Author’s Lounge with its champagne high teas to the seedy fun of Sukhumvit, Bangkok is a destination for the hedonist in you. From Bangkok, you can also visit nearby Cambodia and Laos, both countries that are well-known for their inexpensive living and breathtaking scenery. Vietnam is also just a plane ride away for those who are interested in learning more about the war as well as experiencing some of the most beautiful beaches in the region.

5. Berlin, Germany

Berlin has really made a name for itself as a party capital. Steeped in history, this city of artists supports those who come to party as well as those who come for other reasons. The public transportation system is amazing and you’ll find yourself in a late-night pub by candlelight discussing politics and religion with your new friends.



6. Goa, India

This beach city is famously cheap and a great option for every kind of traveler. Whatever you’re looking for, from quiet beachside drinks to crazy raves and parties, Goa has you covered. It’s beautiful and culturally rich, too. Most of the hotels are some of the cheapest on earth, meaning that you can splurge a little and receive some amazing bargains in return.


7. Copacabana Beach, Brazil

This well-known destination is one of the world’s best beaches, where everyone is barely dressed and the crazy parties last all night long. If you’re looking to spend all your time in the sun and then dance the night away, this is the ultimate getaway for you. The legendary Carnival takes place here and attracts people from all over the world.

8. Kathmandu, Nepal 

If you’re looking for a quieter pace, Nepal is a fantastic destination. Outside the capital city of Kathmandu, prices drop even lower and you can find hotels for two to three dollars a night. This is an incredible deal especially when you factor in the amount of natural beauty and cultural heritage you’ll encounter on a trip to this country.


No matter what your travel goals may be, these are great choices for super cheap spring destinations. You’ll often find that the highest expense you have is just getting there. In both Europe and Asia, you can take advantage of budget carriers or trains to hop around and see more. Since you’ll be saving cash, you’ll have that much more money to explore. Stumped on where to find cheap flights and hotels? We recommend Expedia,Kiwi, or Skyscanner for flights.
