16 Cheapest Places In The World You’d Actually Want To Live

Each of these 16 locales costs pennies on the dollar, yet you’ll be eating, sleeping, drinking, and living about as well (or better) than you would in the costly, “industrialized,” western world.

Mexico

Most urban regions are acclimated to having Americans around, are extremely friendly (especially if you make an effort with your Spanish), and their immigration policies are kind to the point of generous.

1

Romania

Expect to pay close to 1/3 for living expenses here than you would in the United States.

2

Colombia

Freelancers and freewheeling nomads flock to Colombia, which makes it a melting pot full of people from all places and all walks of life.

3

Portugal

Poor Portugal has taken a financial beating in recent years. Their loss is your gain, as Portugal is about half the price of life in the UK and France.

4

Cambodia

Anyone looking for an Asian change of pace will find that Cambodia is the inexpensive gem of the Southeast. Easy access to the big, expensive countries comes standard, and a business visa is all you need to get in the door.

5

Morocco

Probably the kindest country of any African nation to foreigners, the wide tourism industry makes fitting in easy.

6

Baton Rouge, LA

Most of the cheap places in the United States are in the dustbowl or disenfranchised parts of the south, which require a particular state of mind.
