    They say that the financial crisis is over, but that doesn’t change the fact that the last couple o years have been very taxing for the pockets of most of us. According to the news, things are starting to look up now, but that doesn’t mean that we can all go on a splurge, right? But stopping yourself from spending money on leisure time is really difficult for travelers and travel-addicts, so what’s the solution for us?

    Well, better than locking yourself in your apartment for the next few years, here’s a what you can do: travel somewhere cheap! Forget about Tokyo, Moscow or London for a while, and check out this list of the cheapest holiday destinations for 2010/2011!

    Leipzig, Germany

    Leipzig is ranked no. 139 from 141 on the list of countries according to their cost of living. So basically, it can’t get much cheaper than this, right? Leipzig is the capital of Saxony, and a very lively center of arts and entertainment. Shopping opportunities abound in Leipzig, especially when it comes to fair trade.

    Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

    Kuala Lumpur grew from a tiny insignificant village into a vibrant city with over 6 million inhabitants in only a century or so. There’s much to see in Kuala LUmpur culture-wise, and the nightlife of the city is one of the best in South-East Asia. Also, the food is deeelicious.

    Lima, Peru

    Lima is a curious city. At the center is has an oasis of beautiful colonial architecture, surrounded by an expanse of modern buildings and avenues, and some neatly organized slums at the outskirts. When it comes to sightseeing, there are few cities in South America which have more to offer then Lima.

    Ottawa, Canada

    Surprisingly, Ottawa is very high on the list of cities with the lowest cost of living, and its not a half bad holiday destination. The city is bilingual, so you can practice your French, and besides the very nice parks and gardens of the capital, there are many interesting national attractions scattered through the city as well.

    Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

    Ho Chi Minh City, or as many still call it, Saigon, is a city of contradiction. You can very well walk down a narrow street and be lured into tiny shops by the aroma of spices, walk past an ancient pagoda or a busting little market, and round the corner you might bump into a skyscraper or some other completely modern building. Past and present Vietnamese culture at its finest.

    Port Louis, Mauritius

    Port Louis is a fascinating city, but one that you can’t really get the feel of if you stick to the beaten path. Attractions such as the Caudan Waterfront are nice in a bland way, but a bit of exploring will most likely offer you some pleasant surprises. The markets and ethnic neighborhoods of the city are some of the best parts.

    Montevideo, Uruguay

    If you don’t mind seeing some rather fine examples of ugly communist style architecture, and are willing to look behind the shopping malls and high-rise buildings, you will discover that Montevideo has some very nice art-deco and neoclassical architecture. The nightlife of the city is quite exciting, as well.

    I would like to recommend Belgrade, Srbia. Very good night life and very cheap when you compare it with other European cities.
