Georgia

. . . the country. Visiting an emerging destination is a great way to save some serious cash, and this small country nestled at the junction of Europe and Asia has a whole lot to offer. Get your historic city fix in the capital of Tbilisi, where you can stroll the old city riddled with ancient buildings and visit the famous sulfur baths. Roam the Caucasus Mountains in search of old monasteries and stretch your legs on epic hiking trails. At the end of the day, there will be wine to reminisce on your adventures.

Traveling in Georgia is relatively inexpensive, with good food for cheap, and guesthouse lodging options that are more modest in pricing than most of the nearby Balkan countries. Tip: if you have the option to add a meal while staying at a local guesthouse, do it. You'll get homemade, regional food, and plenty of it!
