Not everyone has a big budget when it comes to traveling– and that’s fine. Here are ten places– plain and exotic– that anyone can travel to on the cheap.
The Azores are an exotic set of islands only four hours by plane from the East Coast of the United States, but they feel like a world away. Situated in the North Atlantic Ocean, they comprise of nine volcanic islands, and are a Portuguese territory.
The Azores weren't civilized until the past couple of centuries, which gives them a new, yet modern feel. There is a very personal feel to the islands, and to top it off, the Azores have some of the world's biggest mountaintops.
As for price, expect to pay around $300 to $400 each way during peak season, which is June and July. Hotels can be found for cheap should you book in advance.
