Or anywhere else in Asia for that matter. Thailand is a popular tourist destination for beautiful sights and everything is ridiculously affordable! A meal there will only cost you around £1.50.

2. Ha-Long Bay, Vietnam

2. Ha-Long Bay, Vietnam

Stunning views and incredible and I do mean incredibly edible, tasty food you'll be left craving. Check out the cities Saigon and Hanoi, there's actually Vietnamese beers named after them. Go on, treat your taste buds!

3. India

3. India

Arguably one of the most beautiful places in the world. Stay away from the bigger cities and you'll be fine. Beauty, affordable accommodation and Indian cuisine. Winning.

4. Seoul, South Korea

4. Seoul, South Korea

OK, so the neighboring Tokyo and China are costly but don't let that put you off! South Korea is a popular destination for young travelers. With lovely beaches, and restaurant food that won't cost a fortune, it's worth a visit. "Chin Chin!"

5. Bolivia, South America

5. Bolivia, South America

One of the most traveled and most affordable locations. Venture to other nearby towns such as Machu Picchu for even more stunning sights whilst you're there!

Well, if you're in the UK that's the further afield locations out of the way, now on to what you've been waiting for – Europe. The flights are cheap, the accommodation is affordable, it's all close to home and best of all – the drinks cost half what they do in Londres.

6. Oktoberfest, Munich

6. Oktoberfest, Munich

Ah "Munchen" I do wonder if it earned its name cos of the yummy cheap eats – the pastries are 10 times bigger and they'll cost you near to nothing, hostel cost: 5 euros a night with a bit of haggling. TIP: Visit in September – October for Oktoberfest!

7. Golden Sands Beach, Varna, Bulgaria

7. Golden Sands Beach, Varna, Bulgaria

According to my Bulgarian sources, with all drinks around a quid this is THE place to have a great night out on the cheap and accommodation won't break the bank either!

8. Budapest, Hungary

8. Budapest, Hungary

Nominated the cheapest place to drink in Europe. If you have however, visited all of the above before stopping in Budapest and your wallet is feeling it, you may just find students here who are more than happy to offer you accommodation. They may even offer you dinner, tours of the town centre, and accompany you on your nights out – True story!

9. Prague, Czech Republic

9. Prague, Czech Republic

About the same cost as Hungary, with a similar scene to Amsterdam and the same sized 3 storey clubs as you'll find in Budapest, great nights out to be had here!

10. Croatia

10. Croatia

One of more beautiful locations in Europe. While some of Croatia may be a bit pricey, try Split for a great student destination. Hostel Fiesta Siesta is a cheap stay, you'll be offered free shots and there's even a club downstairs – buddy up to the owner and you'll be set.

11. Lisbon, Portugal

11. Lisbon, Portugal

Stunning city with great weather most the year round. With the wages being pretty low over there, you'll find everything is rather affordable!

12. Madrid, Spain

12. Madrid, Spain

Unless you're going to Ibiza, the other quieter parts of Spain are relatively cheaper and the locals are lovely! - The coast, sangria, Spaniards. Need I say more?

Alternatively, if you love the sound of these places but really can't afford the flights, sign up to hitch-hike for a charity and have free access to all of Europe for a good cause! Just keep going for as long as you can on the generosity of strangers (other students), keep your wits about you and it will be a very cost effective and unforgettable experience!

Happy Travels!
