You might be wondering how someone can rank the top ten backpacking places in the world with such accuracy. In reality, there might be many of these lists: greatest backpacking destinations, best big cities for backpackers, most restful backpacking destinations, places that keep backpackers busy the most, best areas for first-time travelers, and so on.

This collection includes some excellent picks from all of those groups, as well as possibly a few others. To be included on this list of backpackers, a destination must have a large number of hostels and other low-cost lodging options. It also helps to have university portions with reasonable food, natural beauty deserving of a large airfare bill, and sunsets that will be remembered for decades.


The following are 5 of the best backpacking places across the world, listed in no particular order.

India’s Goa

On India’s west coast, the state of Goa is one of the most popular backpacking destinations in the country, if not all of Asia. It’s simple to understand why.

Goa boasts 60 kilometres of tropical beaches, tree-lined lanes, and a party that seems to never end. The hostel room inventory is among the largest in India. Vagator Beach is frequently used as a stopover location by newcomers who intend to stay for three days but end up lingering for three weeks or three months. In many places, hostel nightly costs are under $5 USD.

There’s a beach here to suit everyone’s preferences. Some are quiet and solitary. Others have a bohemian vibe to them.


Choose an Ecuadorian city. Any city will do. You can’t go wrong with this one.

Quito, the country’s capital, is a good starting point for trips to the Mitad del Mundo tropical display, Otavalo’s famous covered market, and the Cotopaxi volcano.

Guayaquil is the largest city in Ecuador, having easy access to Pacific beaches. Cuenca is the country’s third-largest city, with stunning 16th-century architecture framed by distant Andes peaks. You can book a trip to the Galapagos Islands from any of the three cities.

Ecuador, despite its tiny size, has a diverse range of scenery and attractions.

Chattanooga, Tennessee Is A City In The State Of Tennessee.

Chattanooga does not have a world-class hostel selection or a large city to visit. It does, however, provide adventure travel alternatives that will keep an active traveller occupied for days without costing a fortune.

Climbers will encounter some of the most difficult terrain this side of the Mississippi River. On rainy days, there’s even an indoor climbing centre in the heart of downtown, right adjacent to one of the best aquariums in the country.

Kayaking on the Tennessee River, Olympic-quality whitewater rafting on the neighbouring Ocoee River, and even hang-gliding (at a budget-friendly price) are all available to adventure seekers just a few miles across the Georgia state line southwest of the city.

Nicaragua, San Juan Del Sur

Nicaragua is one of the least expensive countries in Central America, owing to its lack of tourism growth compared to its neighbours, such as Costa Rica. Rest assured, Nicaragua is becoming more well-known, and San Juan del Sur is one of the newest hotspots.

This is Nicaragua’s surfing capital. In a short period of time, it has gone from a peaceful fishing community to a tourist hotspot. As a result, it may be one of Nicaragua’s more expensive locations, but keep in mind that an expensive site by Nicaraguan standards is likely to be a bargain virtually everywhere else.

Canada’s West

Unfortunately, the year of free admission to Canadian national parks came to an end on December 31, 2017. Keep in mind that, starting of January 2018, visitors under the age of 17 are admitted for free. The costs charged for entrance to some of the world’s most breathtaking locations are always a steal.

Hiking, camping, and exploring in parks like Banff, Jasper, Glacier, Yoho, Kootenay, and Mount Revelstoke will keep a traveller occupied for days, and costs are low compared to other tourist destinations.
