You can eat out, travel between cities, stay at hostels, spending only $25-30 a day in Sri Lanka. The daily cost can increase if you decide to visit certain sights (for example, World Heritage sites). However, even if you are not going to visit those sites, it is also worth visiting this country just to explore its nature.


4. Estonia
