Keep in mind that you are going to travel, not show off yourself. And the place where you are going is unknown to you, none knows you there. So, there is no need to buy expensive things and clothes.
This is an ultimate truth that most of the travelers don’t know how to travel cheap by air, water or road. This contributes to the escalation of the total travelling cost.

For having cheaper travelling transports, it is better to make the journey in the off-season. In such a time, the transport authorities frequently offer tickets on discount because of passenger shortage.
Besides, you may rarely find that some new transport companies offer ticket for comparatively low price to attract passengers.

If you are living in a hostel or dormitory, we think the authority will offer you enough food for the least cost.
