To help identify the best value destinations, we’ve created a handy interactive travel tool to show how far £100 will get you in 36 cities across the world. Whether you’re looking for a low-cost city break or a luxurious blowout, we compare the price of food, drink, accommodation, public transport and more.
We’ve had a play around with the tool and here’s what we discovered to help travellers make better-informed decisions. For tourists with a smaller budget, the cities in the infographic above are the most affordable cities with the lowest cost per day for the four factors: local meals, a hotel room, public transport and tourist attractions. The most affordable cities, according to our calculations are Dehli, Cairo, Istanbul, Kuala Lumpur and Beijing.
Of course, the actual costs of items often change, as do currency exchange rates. This means that the figures used here are indicative and not set in stone. Our costs were generated by the crowdsourcing sites Numbeo and Budget Your Trip, with additional help from our busy researchers.
Top five most expensive destinations
A globetrotter with more cash to spare could instead consider a trip to one of the top five most expensive locations. As you can see, you’d easily blow your £100 a day budget, unless you had chosen the budget options.
The tool automatically cuts your spend off at around £100, but we made this infographic below just for fun. When we consulted the travel tool, it turned out that the most expensive city destinations seem to be New York City, Los Angeles, London, Miami and Punta Cana.
