There are ways to travel within your budget. [Istockphoto]

Eat local food: In most tourist destinations, you will probably find street vendors who offer local delicacies that come in cheap compared to dining in hotels and upmarket restaurants. Check for street eateries with big queues as opposed to those that seem to be packed. The street vendors will save you money as opposed to expensive hotels and resorts.

Cook your meals: One of the benefits of a rented apartment, a hostel, or homestay share, is that these accommodation facilities have a provision for kitchenettes. These save a substantial budget, especially if your stay is for a long period.
