Why go? With dense rainforests and pristine beaches that rival the best in the world, Malaysia is an incredible retreat in Southeast Asia. Bisesto recommends beginning in Kuala Lumpur (touted as having some of the best street fare in the world), as there are cheap flight options from many different US starting points. "Once you've had your fill of Kuala Lumpur, take a train to the Cameron Highlands or up the coast to Penang to dive deeper into Malaysian culture without increasing your spending."
Accommodations: Only $15 a day will grant wanderlusters a three-star hotel experience, but even splurging for a five-star resort can be done for a fraction of the cost of many tropical destinations. The country is a dream for foodies on a budget, as diners can feast on delectable local selections for only $10 per day.
