The 10 Cheapest Travel Destinations For 2016

I think that Jessica from Narcity Montréal is already fed up with the cold in the city! She found the trendiest places to travel in 2016 a few weeks ago, and then did some research to find the cheapest ones.

So if you are already planning your vacations for the upcoming year, here are the top 10 places you should consider if you are on a budget (because Toronto is making you poor).

1. Estonia

You don't need Kylie Jenner's bank account to travel to Estonia. It is totally possible to stay in hotels without blowing your budget because of the low cost of living. The Nordic and Eastern influences of this european country are charming.

2. Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, Vietnam

This country is a great alternative to Thailand. You can easily find a accommodation, eat well and go out in these 2 cities for under $20 (US) a day.

3. East Africa

The Eastern Africa has so much to offer. Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and the rest of the region are all wonderful places to travel. Majestic beaches, deserts, and breathtaking landscapes are all freely accessible.

4. New Mexico

You are looking for a beautiful but affordable place where the food is amazing? New Mexico is the spot for you. It's also great choice for athletic people who like hiking in forests and mountain biking. In addition, you can visit the famous city of Albuquerque. If you're a fan of Breaking Bad, you'll understand the reference.

5. Bosnia and Hercegovina

Europe is often perceived as an expensive continent. Fortunately, there are still a few places where you can find a good deal, like Bosnia and Herzegovina. The food, the accommodations and the transport are so cheap that you'll have money left to spend on amazing activities like rafting on the Una River or skiing!

6. Galicia, Spain

Located in the northwest of the country, Galicia is somehow the last frontier of Spain. This wilderness area in the rocky coast is a paradise. With countless unspoilt villages and beautiful beaches, Galicia is definitely a place to see and the cost of living is very cheap. The amazing food and the many tapas bars will conquer all of the foodies!

7. Québec City

Yes, Québec City is recommended by Lonely Planet as one of the best value destinations in 2016! If you don't have money to spend on a plane ticket, find some friends for a road trip and enjoy a trip in the Unesco-listed old town, the old-school bistros and the cobblestone streets.

8. Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast

The Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast is the place to go if your need exoticism in your life. This always changing destination is the sanctuary of sloths, turtles, surf, black sands beaches, diving and rafting. The most amazing thing about this place is that it's not much visited by tourists, so it's really not expensive to live there.

9. Timor-Leste

This new asian country is perfect if you prefer lesser-known destinations. You'll find cheap beach shacks on the beaches of Atauro Island and good deals away from the expensive capital, Dili.

10. Western Australia

Breathtaking scenery. These are the first words that come to my mind when I think of Western Australia. It's now possible to visit this far destination on a budget because of the fluctuation of the Australian dollar. The dreamlike landscapes and iconic natural sites will make you dream, that's for sure! And if you like good wine, southwestern vineyards will please you too.

I didn't realize how random the English test was going to be!

Hundreds of thousands of people become permanent residents in Canada every year — but if you've been through the process, you'll know that it's anything but straightforward.

As a U.K. citizen in full-time work in Canada, I was able to apply as an Express Entry candidate (you'd think express means it'd be quick, right? Wrong).

Parliament is officially in session as of Monday, November 22, and Canada's Usher of the Black Rod had a very important part to play in the ceremony.

If you're wondering what exactly it is that Black Rod does (that's the genuine short version of his name, by the way), he's the person at the beginning of the throne speech who ceremoniously leads the Senate Speaker's parade.

In my opinion, body positivity should be implemented and valued across all clothing brands. Although that isn't always the case, more and more companies are hopping on the inclusivity bandwagon — and it's pretty awesome to see if you ask me.
