Spain, France, Portugal, Germany, Italy: US$50+ a day
Turkey: US$30 a day
United Kingdom: US$50, except for London which is bloody unaffordable.
Argentina: US$30 a day
United States, Canada: $US50 a day
I've been doing a bit of research too and the prices quoted seem reasonable.....it shocked me just how cheap everywhere else in the world is compared to england.
a pretty poor hotel will set you back at least Â£30 a night (per person too)
quote:South Africa would set you back about 200 rand a day preparing your own food in a hostels kitchen and drinking wine from the supermarket.
I did the conversion and that equals about $35(CAD) or $30(USD)
- Buenos Aires hostels: $8/night
Peru - $20/day is sufficient. The northern parts (away from Lima and Cusco) I found were cheapest.
- Lima hostel - $5-$8+
- Cusco hostels - many at $5/night including breakfast but not the best of places to stay (some: old sunken in beds, drunk owners, no heat), just cheap. For around $7+ you can stay in a nicer place.
This is based on staying in a hostel dorm and eating in or at local restaurants (not touristy ones) or from street vendors.
I was able to do Peru for about $15/day, and a bit less in the north.
