Kyrgyzstan is included in the 21 best budget travel destinations for 2017

Bishkek, December 30 / Kabar /. Kyrgyzstan is included in the 21 best budget travel destinations for 2017 by Forbes, based on low cost suggestions of digital nomads Jarryd Salem and Alesha Bradford, who are based in Chiang Mai, Thailand. They are in the midst of traveling across land from Thailand to South Africa, and are documenting their wild journey on NOMADasaurus, Alexandra Talty writes.

In particular, digital nomads Jarryd Salem and Alesha Bradford named Kyrgyzstan as one of the most spectacular and underrated countries in the world with 93 percent of the nation covered in mountains and a rich history and culture that goes back thousands of years.

“The capital city, Bishkek, is an incredible hub for exploring Central Asia, with Silk Road remnants like the Burana Tower just a short drive away and some incredible trekking opportunities in the surrounding mountains.

Best of all for a budget traveler, Kyrgyzstan is surprisingly affordable. Private accommodation in the city can be found for as little as $15 a night and good meals start around $2. Even a traditional yurt stay with 2 meals can be as cheap as $20 per person.

One of the first budget travel bloggers, Matt Kepnes has made a name for himself with his website and community, Nomadic Matt. And although the backpacker’s travel style might have evolved over the years, he still knows how to travel for less,” the report says.

Except Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, 21 best budget travel destinations for 2017 also include of Northern Vietnam; Lisbon, Portugal; Seoul, South Korea; Bucharest, Romania; Cape Point, South Africa; Crete, Greece; Palawan, The Philippines; Burleigh Heads, Queensland, Australia; Porto, Portugal; Tobago, Trinidad and Tobago Trencin, Slovakia; Luang Prabang, Laos; Cairo, Egypt; Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia; Moab, Utah; Antigua, Guatemala; Brasov, Romania; Hopkins, Belize; Copán, Honduras; Tbilisi, Georgia.
