18 MOST UNDERRATED Budget Travel Destinations

18 MOST UNDERRATED Budget Travel Destinations

Hello everyone, and welcome back to Vagabrothers- your go-to channel for travel tips, vlogs, and inspiration here on YouTube. I’m Alex. I’m Marko And today we’re answering one of the most frequent questions we get: what are the most underrated travel destinations that you need to visit right now? To answer that question, we’ll be sharing not only our own opinion, but those of the most trusted travel professionals in the industry. Last September we spoke at TravelCon in Austin, and we got a chance to interview some of the world’s top writers, vloggers, and guidebook editors and ask them what they thought of the next up and coming destinations. If you enjoy this video, please give it a thumbs-up, make sure you’re subscribed. And don’t worry. If you’re wondering where you should travel next, stay tuned. These are the world’s most underrated travel destinations. First up: Oneika Raymond, host of Big City Little Budget on the Travel Channel. She recommends Bolivia. I spent two and a half weeks traveling throughout the country. I went to multiple cities, and it is the most physically gorgeous country that I have ever been to. But a lot of people have barely ever heard of it. So make sure you go to Bolivia, and check out especially the salt flats the Salar de Uyuni. It’ll blow your mind. So cool. I haven’t been to Bolivia yet, but I’ve seen images. It looks like an incredible country. We visited Ecuador and Peru, both of which have sections of the Andes, and a similar kind of cultural heritage, but from what I’ve heard, Bolivia is about to be one of the next big destinations, and it’s a place I’d really love to visit. It’s got the Death Road, which is crazy to bike down. That’s an adventure it can be in itself. It’s got the salt flats. It’s the last place where Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid went to. If you’re into adventure, you wouldn’t be the first, but you’re not going to be the last, either. This is an up and coming destination, and it’s on our bucket list. I think one of the most underrated destinations is probably Romania. I think not enough people go there. It’s beautiful. The people are cool. It’s cheap. There’s a lot of history there, a lot of natural beauty. People skip it, and you shouldn’t. Have you been to Romania? I have not. Neither have I. I’m a bit of a nature nerd. I know that Romania is one of the greenest countries in Europe. Over 50 percent of the country is still forested. And it’s one of the last places in Europe that still has brown bears. I’d be down to get out there, do some backpacking. I’d like to get into those..the mountains out there. It looks beautiful. Whether you’re into hiking backpacking or travel backpacking, it’s good for you because Bucharest is one of the cheapest cities in Europe. It’s really affordable. If you want to go to Europe and you’re trying to stretch your dollar, we’ve heard that is one of the best places to spend some time. Russia is really different. It’s really surprising and I think there’s a lot to offer and a lot more to see that we don’t typically see in the media and in other forms of travel content. I traveled to Russia ten years ago on the Trans Siberian Railroad coming from Beijing going through Siberia stopping in Irkutsk and getting up to Moscow and Saint Petersburg Overall, I really loved Russia. It is a country that here in the United States you hear a lot of negativity about in the press. But politics aside, I actually found a lot of similarities between Russia and the United States,. specifically in Siberia. It had kind of like a frontier culture that reminded me a lot of Wyoming and the Western United States. It’s beautiful. The Trans Siberian is a unique experience, and the cities of Moscow and St Petersburg are beautiful, especially Saint Petersburg. It’s a gorgeous city and would love to go back, maybe not in the winter, but then again, maybe that’s the best way to see it at its heart. Our next destination, Namibia, was recommended twice: once by Kiersten Rich of @TheBlondeAbroad and also by Jason Cochran, editor of Frommer’s Guide Books. I’ve been based in South Africa for the last two years. I would say a lot of African destinations, but specifically Namibia, it’s just naturally stunning. There’s so much to see and do. It’s inexpensive. It’s just amazing. It’s a fascinating place. There’s almost no one in it. It’s the least densely populated country in Africa. Half of it is desert, if not more than half. I just think more people ought to be going. But on the other hand, maybe I don’t want them to go because that would spoil the magic of how empty the place is. I love Namibia. I visited Namibia back in 2011, and I can definitely vouch. Namibia is one of the most unique places I’ve ever been in my life. It’s one of the most sparsely populated places on earth, after Siberia, but what it’s lacking in humans, it more than makes up for in incredible wildlife. It’s just a very nice place. You don’t see elephants walking through the middle of the desert very often. If you do get an opportunity to make it to Namibia, I highly recommend that you take it. Adding in one of our own recommendations: Uzbekistan. Just went there. Just published a series from the country, and overall was a fascinating place, especially if you’re into history, architecture, and food. Definitely an unique destination, unlike anywhere I’ve ever been before. I don’t know……… I think you visit Uzbekistan, you’re never going to forget that trip. It’s kind of “frontier-ish” in certain aspects, but when you see these big, beautiful buildings, mausoleums, mosques, and minarets and you try the food and the friendly people, it’s just a place that will really imprint itself on you. And it will be good for your Instagram, too. Head out there. And click this card to see the full series on our YouTube channel. Next up: travel vloggers Kara and Nate recommend Turkey. I think that Turkey is super underrated and not just Istanbul. The entire country is so fascinating. The people are amazing. The food is so yummy. The nature is so cool. There’s tons of history. I love Turkey. We visited Istanbul. I know that Turkey is much more than that, but it is a very fascinating city. It’s one of the coolest places I’ve ever visited. There’s something very unique about how cultures have blended together there. The Bosphorus You’re in Europe looking at Asia of vice/versus and there’s just layer upon layer of the history there. The blend of cultures there is super cool . One of the things I loved most about it was walking down the street and having the feeling like…. wow… this is like New York with the blend of cultures from all around the world, but on the other side of the world and with a totally different blend of cultures. And there’s a lot of cool connections in this part of the world that as a traveller you might find fascinating. And the food, by the way, is delish, and Turkish message in Hamam? Ah feel good. I like it. Next up; we have Dave and Deb from The Planet D. Dave recommends a destination that we visited last year: Sri Lanka. A lot of people go to the beaches of India, and all that kind of stuff, but don’t really give Sri Lank the time of day. But it’s really incredible. The people are amazing. Great beaches, great surfing, great food, great culture. It is an amazing destination. I would have to second Dave there. I think Sri Lanka is definitely one of the coolest places that we’ve visited in quite a while. I had a spectacular time there. I came home with a beautiful puppy who’s the coolest animal that I’ve ever met, and… the landscape, the culture, the food, the people..super friendly. I loved it. It’s a totally underrated destination because it gets kind of overlooked. With a country like India right next to it, which is a huge tourist draw, some people might not think of Sri Lanka. But it does have a lot of what India has without a lot of things that drive away a lot of tourist from India. It’s cleaner. There are way fewer people. There’s less people in the whole country of Sri Lanka than I think some of the biggest cities like Delhi and Mumbai. So it’s way more chill and until now has really only been a destination that was frequented by surfers for the most part. They go looking for waves all around the world and a lot of surfers have found paradise there in Sri Lanka. Now more tourist are catching on. For me I think the most underrated destination is Nova Scotia, Canada. A lot of people don’t think of Nova Scotia. They think of Ireland; they think of Scotland when they want that culture. But you get a great same East Coast vibe on Nova Scotia with beautiful scenery, great cliffs and a lot of wildlife and fantastic fun people to party with. You and I over the past few years have visited quite a lot of Canada, but one region that has eluded us is this north eastern corner of the Atlantic provinces of Canada, and Nova Scotia in particular is one that I’m really interested in visiting. I’ve heard great things. We have some friends who’ve told us that they’ve lived in Halifax, and they really recommend it as a great town. There’s tons of wildlife, and there’s great culture in the rural areas. Overall, I think we’ve touched every province that borders on the United States, with the exception of the eastern provinces. We’ve got to get out there. Thank you Deb for the recommendation. Hopefully, we’ll see you out there soon. Eric Prince of Minority Nomads recommends Malaysia. It’s quite popular among backpackers, but I don’t see a lot of non- backpackers going there. Every time I go, I have an amazing time. Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Cameron Highland, the people, the food, the culture, the weather… amazing destination. I went to Malaysia right after college. I backpacked through Southeast Asia, and one of the things that drew me to that country was the Jungle Railroad. It is a slow moving, scenic train that goes through the jungles in the heart of the peninsula, the Malaysian Peninsula. It was beautiful. I went to the Cameron Highlands. I went to Taman Negara National Park. I went also to the Perhentian Islands, which are just north in the ocean right there. Very mellow, very un-touristed, at least then. One place I didn’t get to go was Georgetown, formerly known as Penang. If you have Penang curry, you get a flavor/sample of the entire country. It’s a great place that blends together all sorts of different influences from Malaysian, Indian, English, Chinese all in one place, and it is delicious. Adventure travel blogger, Matt Kartsen, aka @expertvagabond recommends Greenland. One of my favorite countries/islands…. You’d think it’s covered in ice, but around the coast there’s lots of actual green and lots of adventure activities. It’s got a really cool and interesting culture. It’s not high on a lot of people’s list, but I think it should be. Matt’s wife, blogger @annaeverywhere recommends Iran. It’s not a destination very popular for Americans since you have to go on an organized tour. I went there last year, and I was really amazed because Iran literally has everything. There is a desert; there’s beautiful architecture, great food; people are extremely nice. There’re many different islands. I spent there about three weeks, and I still maybe only saw a tiny fraction of the country. I would definitely go back. And the most underrated destination for me I’m going to say Prague. I’ve spent a few times there, and I’ve spent it in a friend’s apartment in a cute little neighborhood with the most delicious food all around. In the summer months, it can be a little overcrowded, but if you hit it in the off season, it is the perfect destination. I agree with Cailin. I think it’s an awesome city. I wouldn’t go as far as to say it’s underrated because it’s got quite a lot of people who visit. And people even use the word, “Oh this is the the new Prague” because it’s like the new Berlin. These places are super popular. But I do agree that they’re popular for a reason. It’s an excellent place with wonderful architecture, fun vibe, and beer that’s cheaper than water. I would agree with you. I think that Prague is a very beautiful city. But if I had to choose favorites, I think I would pick Budapest. Totally. Budapest is awesome. Let’s make that official. Number 13, Budapest. Hot springs, great nightlife, beautiful architecture, beautiful people, really good food, not that expensive. I also loved it. It’s straight out of Wes Anderson Grand Budapest Hotel. Come on. It’s got a beautiful color palette. They have 120 hot springs in the center of the city. I personally don’t feel like I’m on vacation until I’ve dipped my toes in a hot spring. If you’re going to visit Budapest, have fun, experience the night life, but you can skip out on the “sparty.” Really gross. We did that, and we can testify. There was a lot of weird stuff floating around in that pool that you don’t want to know what it is. Mostly bodily fluids. Uck….. moving along. I think one of the most underrated is probably Oman. Here’s a really friendly country, predominantly Muslim, but with incredible beaches, incredible laws that favor women. We’re safe there, and it’s a great place to visit. Totally echo what Spud said. Oman is a great country. We were there in 2013, and just really loved the balance of a country that is able to preserve its traditions while also being open to foreigners. That’s very rare, especially in the Middle East. It’s a friendly, stable country, and locals are genuinely interested in foreigners and want to show off the beauty of their culture. I think Oman really breaks all the stereotypes that you have of the Middle East and of the Arabian Peninsula . Yes, there is the desert. Oman has part of the Empty Quarter, one of the largest stretches of desert in the Middle East. But it’s also home to huge, green mountains, “wadis” that are full of water, and there’re beaches with surf. Oman actually catches the tail end of the monsoon. It’s a place that will break all of the stereotypes that you may have or that the media perpetuates about the Middle East. It’s a place that we highly recommend that you go visit. Speaking of the Middle East, Elena Nikolova aka @muslimtravelgirl recommends neighboring Qatar. I just recently moved to Qatar, and I can testify that it’s one of the best countries for solo female travel, for family travels, for adventure travels. It’s so much smaller, so much more intimate. You can meet friendly locals. You can have great local food. And you can just get a real sense of what it is to be in a Muslim, Arabian country and have so much fun. Moving things back to South America, Ernest White II, @ flybrother recommends Sao Paolo, Brasil. It’s a phenomenal city of 20 million Brazilians. It’s exhilarating; it’s exciting. Obviously, you have to like cities. It is the Ur city. I love Sao Paolo, and I think more people should spend time there. Frommer’s Guide Book, editor in chief, Jason Cochran recommends another side of a popular country: Western Australia. I don’t think enough people venture west of Melbourne or Adelaide when they go. And Perth. Although Perth feels a little bit like San Diego or Miami, the countryside southwest has giants trees and the Karri Forest and the surf waves they have in the southern and western coasts. It’s kind of a great area. It’s almost a New Zealand-like area that I wish more people would visit because it’s pretty cool. It just takes so long to reach to, even from Sydney that a lot of people don’t even bother. Our friends had some nice things to say about our home country: the USA. The most underrated for me is the United States. We have so much to see and do here in the United States. I’d say the midwest. I love traveling in the midwest. Some of my best trips have been in Iowa. Which of the fifty, nifty United States is your favorite? It’s hard to pick favorites, especially amongst the fifty states. Obviously kind of a toss up between Hawaii, Alaska, and California, but lately I’ve been really digging the Four Corners area of where Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona all come together. The Southwest is an incredibly beautiful place and visiting in the fall, the winter, the spring, you kind of avoid that desert heat and you can explore all of the national parks that are out there. I also am really interested in the south, in Louisiana, specifically. I really love New Orleans. I think it’s one of the coolest cities in the world. I also really want to explore more of Nashville and places like down there in the south. I really don’t know too much about the area. I really want to explore more of that. It’s a side of my own country I really haven’t seen too much of. Last but not least, travel writer Thomas Swick recommends Poland. I lived in Poland for two and a half years. I obviously have a soft spot for the country. People go to Krakow sometimes, but they forget Warsaw, the Banks, some really beautiful places in Poland. The mountains in the south are spectacular. So I would say Poland is underrated. We haven’t visited Poland yet, but we’re actually planning on visiting this summer. I’m excited to check it out. I’ve heard a lot of good things. How about you? I’ve heard Warsaw has a great craft beer scene. Looking forward to getting into that. We’re going to go to Krakow as well.

  1. Novia scotia (cape breton) and Newfoundland are incredible. Vancouver and Banff get all the glory in Canada but the eastern coast is really, really cool. It's a cool mix of Ireland and Canada 🙂 plus, you can road trip and camp around all the maritime provinces easily.

  2. Things to do in romania: hike, explore the castles ,eat good food, don' t land in bucharest , land in cluj , the public transportation is ok there and is cleaner, don't take a cab, they rip you off, take a uber , bolt or yango, never eat in the old town is to damn expensive and for 5 euro you can get a full meal in a fancy place rather than a kebap,wear your backpack on front not your back , people steal in public transportation and they might cut your bag with a razor blade to get to whats inside, never book a hotel or airbnb in the old town the building is in a hight risk of colapsing , never trust people and exchange places use your revolut to pay what ever you need, exchange around 40$ that will be enough for 3 days for two people, some store prices: pepsi / cola 2l bottle is around 1.3.$ , 2 l water bottle is aroud 65 cents , pizaa slice is 1$ , a decent coffee its 1.1$ and you can get it from 5togo is the ghetto version of starbuks , you can get a meal for 5 $, the public transpot include the tram and the bus for 2$ / day pass or 0.5 for trip on a buss or tram line, a subway/metro ticket is 60 cents for one time or 2 $ for a day pass

  3. This video is actually very useful…for knowing which countries to NOT go to if you want to avoid meeting douchebag hipster white "travelers" represented by most of the talking heads in the video.

  4. I loved Oman! A safe, warm, welcoming country with incredible landscapes and a culture that balances modernity and tradition. – A travelling Canadian 🙂

  5. Another country to add, Albania! Lots of untouched beautiful turquoise beaches. It’s on the Mediterranean so the beaches are identical to Greek and Italian beaches, minus the crowds. Also the Albania alps??stunning. Albania has a lot to offer from the nature, friendly people and history. I’d say it’s a hidden gem in Europe and it’s really cheap compared to its surrounding countries.

  6. https://avecox.me/blog/travel-tips-krakow-poland Krakow!! Also Zakopane is a really beautiful mountainous town in the south of Poland with incredible scenery

  7. The title says most underrated and low budget…. so lots of those countries listed not precisely fall below under these categories. For example, Turkey is very well known and one of the most visited country in the world. USA, Canada and Australia are not for budget travellers.
    For me the top 2 should be:
    1. Qatar because most people would think when they hear middle eastern countries are war, not safe, poverty and just a plain dessert but little that they know Qatar is actually the richest country in the world with lots of skyscrapers, among the lowest crime rate in the world and having one of the best western tolerance approaches compared to neighbouring Middle Eastern countries.
    2. Malaysia. Totally overshadowed by almost every single neighbour they have. Philippine,Singapore,Bali (Indonesia) and Thailand but they actually have the richest culture among those neighbouring countries. Their tourism slogan says it all “Malaysia truely Asia”. This is because you can get the taste of almost all main culture in Asia under one plate. From Indonesian foods, Malay foods, chinese foods, Indian foods, Thais foods and Arabian foods. They celebrate all 4 main worlds biggest religious celebrations. Reasonably cheap yet still modern n well organised country.

  8. My girlfriend and I are active backpackers and we absolutely love yalls videos. We recently went to South America for a few months hitting Colombia , Peru and Bolivia! Definitely go to Bolivia; it is beautiful , rich with culture, cheap to travel and the death road is epic! Could not reccomend it more. Keep it up guys!

    Side note: it is a time consuming process getting into the country as an American. Be prepared to produce documents such as ; proof of stay, full typed up itinerary, credit card statements, mult. ID's, etc..

  9. Romania…plenty to do…verry cheap…mountains…Black sea with resorts like Miami South Beach…Danube delra unique in Europe….cheap accomodation…ceap foid and drinks….beatiful mountains…stay in agroturismo…eat local traditional food with products made right there

  10. Instambul is fantastic but be careful at your restaurants bills ….they try to cheat…overcharge….and loads of imigrants tryng to sell all kind of stuff to make a living

  11. Growing up in Sweden, everyone was traveling to Turkey. I'm one of the few in my friends group that hasn't been. It is a beautiful country from what I've heard but it's definitely not underrated in Sweden.

  12. How about Bulgaria…Plovdiv & Verna look amazing & so does Belogradchik (like something out of a Dr. Suesscreation, with rock formations in odd shapes)….also Matera (Ancient city made of cave dwellings?) & Alberobello (cute fairy-tale Smurf-houses) in Italy.

  13. Speaking of the South… I feel like a very underrated city is Natchez, Mississippi. It’s sitting on the Mississippi River between New Orleans and Vicksburg. Beautiful historical town with a scenic river walk, antebellum house tours, great restaurants, and just an overall chill, layed back vibe. I’d suggest going in the spring when they do their Spring Pilgrimage. You won’t be disappointed.

  14. The picture used of the rocks for Nova Scotia is not in Nova Scotia it is in New Brunswick. It is called Hopewell Rocks or Flowerpot Rocks I have been there a couple times and it is great. Although it would be only around a 3 hour drive to Hopewell Rocks from Halifax, Nova Scotia.

  15. in my life wishlist I'd like to know/make these things:
    1. Take a hike on the swiss alps, namely the Rosa Hütte and take the Glaciar Express
    2. Get to know the Saharan Desert and watch the stars at night while camping at the dunes
    3. Go a karaoke in Japan, Vietnam, South Korea, or Malaysia (no Thailand) and experience local cuisine
    4. Experience the wildlife of a safari in the heart of east Africa
    5. Spend somg time in the bizzare and underworld life of NYC on those sketchy places
    6. Take the Russian Train that traverses the whole siberia making one or two day stops on some cities
    7. See the northern lights, preferrably in Finland, in an Ice hotel, and take the sauna experience as well
    8. visit Both the galapagos Islands and the Eastern Islands in south america
    9. Spend a night at a deserted atoll in oceania with little to no people surrounding me and see the coral reefs
    10. Visit antartica and see the local fauna there as a part of an expedition.

    So far, I'm doing the number 2 and number 3 probably on the next couple of years, but some aren't really that expensive to achieve, I'll die happily once I achieve them all.

  16. Budapest????? Lol, lol just make the list short but don’t include Budapest. I’m sure you will love Poland, food and country are amazing

  17. Hey Vagabrothers, have you ever considered Virginia? Williamsburg is the best place in the state for American history and east coast fun! Just saying as a fan and a local.

  18. Santa Catarina in Brazil there is a mix of Germany, Italian and Portuguese culture, beautiful nature and beaches, and georgeous girls

  19. I live in the South and NOLA is the best place to visit. Nashville was pretty boring to me. Unless you are super into country music, skip it. The Smoky Mountains are so beautiful. I've been to the Rockies as well but prefer the Smokies because there is way more green and there are SO many waterfalls! I swear I have visited like 50 different waterfalls in the Smoky mountains I probably still have not seen them all. National parks are cheap to visit too. 🙂

    Florida has great beaches. I've heard other areas of the country don't have sandy beaches. You don't have to go to Miami. There are beaches throughout the entire state. I typically go to Pensacola because it is the closest major city in Florida to me. There's also beaches from Texas-Alabama but the water is a murky brown color because of the Mississippi River's muddy water mixing into the gulf. The further away from the river you get the bluer the water gets.

  20. Tel Aviv, Israel ??
    Cape Town, South Africa ??
    Lisbon, Portugal ??
    Medellín, Colombia ??

    I love all of the places I listed above. I wouldn’t say they’re all underrated but they definitely should be visited!!

  21. Hey Alex and Marko, your films are well made, good use of drones and good editing! Talking about Romania, you should visit Brașov, Romania during the ski season. The place looks unbelievable, they even have a sign on the side of the mountain just like the Hollywood sign (you'll love it). The country is definitely on my list of places to visit. Also, read Paul Theroux's "Deep South" – started it & haven't finished it, but he has an interesting take on the less visited parts of the South. And last but not least, if you love nature, you must visit The Lake District of Chile. They call it The Lake District because it reminded the settlers of the Lake District of Italy. Cheers!

  22. Iran is the the cheapest because Iran currency is the most worthless and really most amazing country with great and hospitable people

  23. So, USA, Canada, Prague, Russia, Turkey ate Underrated? If they are underrated, then what about India? People generalize the whole of India by visiting old Delhi, Mumbai and Rajasthan. Have they ever visited Northern most states/UTs like ladakh, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand. Northeast states, and southern states?
    Every state in India is more diverse than the countries in Europe. Infact, India is more diverse than the Entire Europe

  24. The last guy made the worst bigoted description for Oman.. it’s predominantly muslim but it has nice beaches and lots of pro woman laws.. that’s how you commend Oman. And you are supposedly a travel blogger.

  25. Hi guys nice video… But I think it's just a perspective from your part of the world… Many places as far as I know are quite popularly visited

  26. I live in León, Nicaragua, but I am from Savannah GA area of the USA! My hometown in the USA is beautiful and I would recommend the area to anyone!

  27. Just spent 2 weeks travelling south of Perth in Western Australia and yes, very underrated, which still makes it special to visit. Highlights – Fremantle Prison a world heritage site built in 1850. Kings Park. The Perth Mint. wildflowers in spring. Kokerbin Rock, near Bruce Rock – third largest monolith in Australia. Wave rock at Hyden. Travel the back gravel roads east of King Lake through to Esperance if you like being very remote and enjoy the outback. Cape Arid NP – Lucky Bay is stunning. Sand so white and fine it literally squeaks. The most gorgeous turquoise water. One of the most beautiful beaches in Australia. Stokes Inlet national Park – hauntingly beautiful paperbark trees surround the inlet. Ravensthorpe wildflower show in September. Fitzgerald River National Park. Bremer Bay – whales! Cheynes – fell in love with the most stunning red Banksia cochineal wildflowers. Albany – The Gap, ANZAC museum and memorial park. Elephant Rocks. Giant Tinglewood and Karri forests. Tree top walk. Walpole inlet Eco cruise. Pemberton – 4wd tour of the incredible sand-dunes at D’entrecasteaux National Park. That is just the south of WA. The north of WA is unique, stunning and definitely on my bucket list too. I Love WA!

  28. Namibia is super chilled, would definitely recommend. Other lesser know places in Sub-Saharan Africa that aren't that well known but worth seeing are Zanzibar (off coast of Tanzania) and Reunion Island (overseas French territory and is great for hikers and has a volcano that u can take a helicopter ride over). I really enjoyed Victoria Falls in Zambia/Zim.

  29. Bolivia seemed quite culturally similar to Peru, but Salt Flats are amazing. Mountain bike Death Road a few hours outside of La Paz if you're an adrenaline seeker. Sucre has some nice architecture. In South America you have to visit Cusco, Buenos Aires and Rio. The Negro river near Manaus, Brazil is great

  30. loving your videos, I've traveled quite a bit but you guys and these vids have inspired me to travel more and solo! x

  31. The trouble is, once "everyone" starts to go to one of these places they ruin it with over crowding of tourists. Look at Venice or Santorini–almost literally standing room only during the tourist season.

  32. Dahab Egypt is definitely underrated/ unknown. It’s an Egyptian paradise that gets overlooked by travelers.
    It’s on the Red Sea and legit awesome.

    Another place is Puerto Rico. It had beautiful beaches, great food, and a bioluminescent bay- glowing microorganisms that makes it feel like you are in a dream

  33. Nooo…..Did you just say visit the freaking park was one of the nicest places to visit in the USA? People they didi'nt mention the crime is pretty bad in these areas. Let's not suga coat your video when it comes to this very racist world. Now, If you can step over that bull crap, Then, I tip my hat to you guys.. Even people can obviously see in your video what you honestly did not mention.

  34. Penang is worth the trip for the food.. hands down the best I've ever had.
    @Alex: Bro.. just look up a program called Laptop Earnings..
    It's 2019.. you can work from anywhere in the world now..
    That's one of the best digital marketing courses out right now.
    If u wanna get it.. u can try the code "limited50" on the check out page.
    Not sure if it still works.. but worth a shot.

  35. I've been to over 40 countries and the most underrated in my opinion are-
    1- Oman
    Amazing wadis, amazing deserts
    2- Georgia
    The most beautiful waterfalls, lakes and mountains and amazing cities
    3- Pakistan
    Breathtaking mountains, amazing adventure like going to K2's basecamp and amazing waterfalls and cities
    4- Slovenia
    Slovenia is like a mini-Switzerland. Amazing Alps, amazing lakes like lake bled and amazing gorges.
    5- Sri lanka
    Amazing mountains and cities and amazing culture

  36. 2:20

    There're brown bears in 22 countries across Europe. From Armenia to Norway. There's 44 countries in Europe. LITERALLY every other country has brown bears.

  37. I am glad you went to Poland and btw your videos are amazing ..wish you do some more from south part of the country especially Tatra mountains as its spectacular !

  38. In Poland , for me the best place is Zakopane. There you can find a lot of hiking trails,beautiful national parks, and cute wooden lodges ??✌️

  39. I want to Poland last year and my two favorite things I did was to go to Zamek Ogrodzieniec and Morskie oko. The castle was empty when my family and I got there so we got to explore all by ourselves. And the lake was beautiful! It should be noted that we went on April and at the bottom of the mountain it was around 70 degrees but at the top there was snow, so just making sure to dress correctly.

  40. So, this is technically not an underrated travel destination but an underrated travel experience. Stargazing/Astrotourism. It is magical and mind boggling to witness the milky way and thousands of stars that are visible to the naked eye, especially if you grew up in the city. Rather, the andromeda galaxy can be seen without any telescopes if the skies are dark enough. And if you've got a pair of binoculars, you can see some of the bright nebulous gas clouds in which stars are born. Even better if you can rent a telescope, because then you can spot giant galaxies that are colliding! Many National Parks in the US and around the world have become Dark Sky Reserves. I'll be heading to the Canary Islands in Spain soon to check out the night skies over there. I'd think the dark sky experience in general would be something very special and memorable for a lot of tourists.

  41. Go to Nova Scotia and yes see Halifax but also the Annapolis Valley where there are vineyards, orchards, Acadia university, Grand Pré etc

  42. I’d add Albania to the list. It’s inexpensive and has friendly people, interesting cities and beautiful mountains and coastline.

  43. Finally, a Travel Video where 'Oman' is mentioned. It truly is one of the best-hidden gems around the world with so much travel potential to offer, and the locals (known as Omanis) are super friendly and hospitable. As the slogan of Oman Tourism rightly says, "Beauty has an Address", Oman is a Beautiful and Underrated Travel Destination in the World. #experienceoman

  44. Come on guys! I love your videos but you could make this one way better. I know you can. 😉 Istanbul (Turkey), Prague, Budapest, Malaysia, USA, Moscow, Sankt Petersburg, California, Hawaii are as mainstream tourist destinations as they come. Far from underrated off the beaten path destinations. Vagabuddies are waiting for a new, updated list for 2020. 🙂

  45. i wish there more African destinations on this list. 54 countries in the whole continent and Namibia is the only one that made the cut?

  46. Azerbaijan. Great food and stunning nature. Baku is a beautiful city and then head up to a small mountain village such as Xinaliq. Also a dictatorship, which makes everything more interesting.

  47. Thanks for the effort you guys put into your videos! Always enjoy watching them. Thanks for highlighting the Jungle railroad in Malaysia! And I can confirm that Perhentian is still gorgeous – I love to visit regularly during non-peak season (the tail-end of the monsoon season, but before the summer tourists arrive).

    Just wanted to point out a few things in case it helps: Penang curry (or as we call the two variations: Penang curry laksa or Penang asam laksa) is amazing. I agree that it blends different cuisines – but only Malay and Chinese. I wouldn't really say English or Indian culture did much to influence that particular dish. But Penang has loads of delicious Indian food. I can't think of any English food other than fish and chips in Malaysia, and you would just go to chain restaurants for that. Also Malaysia is made up of three main cultures/races: Malay, Chinese and Indian. Malaysian is a term used to describe any inhabitants of the country, not a particular culture per se.
