Asia has long been a top destination for travelers on a budget, and for good reason. Even high-end accommodations are remarkably affordable, and market stalls make it possible to enjoy the tastiest local cuisine without spending a lot of money. We've selected the best destinations for stretching your dollar as far as possible.

Once you get to Asia, traveling between countries is often surprisingly inexpensive. Budget airlines crisscross the continent, making it easy to pack in a lot into one trip. Bangkok is a hub for cheap flights to destinations around the continent, so many travelers pass through Thailand’s capital at least once during their trip. And many decided to stay longer than they expected because of the amazing cuisine, non-stop nightlife, and interesting culture.

In Asia you’ll find endless free and inexpensive activities to occupy your time, from touring historic monuments to hiking lush rainforests to soaking up sun on picture-perfect beaches. When you’re hungry, head to the street carts for authentic food that will fill you up for a very small sum.

While not all destinations in Asia are inexpensive – the cost of traveling to Japan has increased quite a bit over the past few decades – many remain extremely reasonable. Some of our favorite bargains include Hanoi, Vietnam and Siem Reap, Cambodia. Many travelers choose to extend their vacations in these destinations once they see how much they can get for their dollar.
