Cambodia is a great place to
visit if you have a tight budget. But you can also live there on a more
permanent basis on a relatively low wage. For just $5 local fishermen will cook
you a delicious meal which they caught the same day; most seafood here costs
around $1-2.

reef. Moreover, it’s comparatively free from tourists, which has helped make
finding a place to live relatively easy — you can pay just $150-200 a month.

a lot more expensive than many of the other countries mentioned in this list.

Nicaragua is a really great
option for anyone who wants to see a fascinating part of the world but is short
of funds. From food to rent, everything here is quite cheap — and that doesn’t
mean the quality of anything is lower either. A monthly budget of around $995
is enough to get you a large apartment and pay the bills, feed you and a partner,
and still have enough left over for entertainment.

Few people know it, but the
southern tip of Albania is a brilliant place to lead a quiet life. The region
is home to the city of Butrint and a nearby national park. The local cuisine is
wonderful, whilst the climate is as pleasant as anywhere in the Mediterranean.
But unlike anywhere else in that region, Albania is a very cheap place to live:
a drink will cost you just 90 cents; a great fish-based meal around $6, and an
apartment around $100-120 a month.
