Traveling solo is a fun, empowering, and life-changing experience, but it isn’t always cheap. Luckily, there are many fun things you can do when traveling the world on your own without breaking the bank, and these three are a good place to start.

Stay at Hostels

You’re probably fully aware that hostels are the cheapest form of accommodation, but have you ever stayed at one? You should try booking a bed in a hostel dorm at least once in a lifetime, just to see if you like it. Even if it turns out they’re not your thing, you’ll meet many interesting people and save a lot of money along the way.

Eat Street Food

Street food isn’t as expensive as fancy restaurant meals, but that’s not stopping it from being super-tasty. In addition to being cheap, trying street food is a must because it’s more authentic, and eating it is one of the best ways to immerse yourself in the local culture.

Join Free Walking Tours

If you’re looking for a way to quickly learn everything you need to know about the place you’re visiting, joining a free walking tour is always a good idea. Keep in mind that free walking tours aren’t 100% free, and it’s highly recommended to tip your guide.
