World’s cheapest holiday hot spots

A British bank has analysed 35 of the world’s most popular cities where tourists spend the least amount of money per day — as well as the cities tourists should avoid if they’re on a budget.

London-based Starling Bank compared the costs of accommodation, food, transport and tourist attractions in 35 cities to determine the average price per day for a sightseeing visitor.

And the good news for Australians is: Many of the cheapest spots are on our doorstep.

According to Starling Bank, the cheapest spot to spend a day as a tourist is Delhi, India, where a full day of sightseeing will set you back about $53.87. That includes about $16.26 for food, $1.32 for public transport, $30.14 for accommodation and $6.12 for attractions in the capital territory.

On the other end of the spectrum, if you want to save some money, avoid New York City, where the average daily cost for a visitor is calculated at a whopping $341.80.
