Embarking on an international adventure doesn't have to break the bank, and our travel guru, Addy, is here to spill the beans on mastering the art of budget backpacking. From the picturesque landscapes of Patong Beach in Phuket, Addy shares invaluable tips and tricks to ensure your next international trip is both memorable and affordable.

The journey begins with Addy's contagious enthusiasm as he explores the diverse scenes of Phuket, from its beautiful beaches to vibrant local markets and attractions. The video above is not just a visual delight but a treasure trove of practical advice for the budget-conscious traveler. So here's how you do it!

Save on Flight Fare

Flight fares are arguably the most significant portion of any international trip. But if you book your trips well in advance, and that too for weekdays instead of weekends, you do end up saving a lot.

Beat the Roaming Blues

After touchdown, the focus shifts to staying connected without burning a hole in your pocket. Addy recommends Airtel's International Roaming pack, highlighting its affordability (starting at just ₹133/day) and the convenience of keeping the same phone number across multiple countries.

Affordable Hotels FTW!

When it comes to accommodation, Addy advocates for budget-friendly options slightly away from tourist hubs. Whether it's comfortable homestays or lively hostels, these choices not only save money but also provide a unique cultural experience.

Street Food > Fine Dining

Exploring the local food scene is a must, and Addy's advice is to skip fancy restaurants in favor of pocket-friendly and authentic street food. Not only do you get to stay away from exorbitant food bills, you also get to eat what the locals love to eat.

Public Transport All The Way!

Getting around doesn't have to drain your wallet. Addy suggests opting for shared cabs, public buses, and trains, emphasizing the cost-effectiveness of these modes of transportation.

Try Activities That Cost Nothing

Even activities can be budget-friendly. Addy recommends free walking tours for an insider's perspective and savvy tips like booking activities online in advance to avoid peak-season price hikes.

So if you're planning your very own budget-friendly international escapade anytime soon, we hope this video was a nice cheat sheet for you.
