The Great Wall of China, The Colosseum, Machu Picchu, Christ the Redeemer, Petra, Chichén Itzá, and the Taj Mahal – these are seven structures that are so popular they have been voted as the Seven Wonders of the World. So what about if you want to enjoy them all while traveling on a budget?
Think About Timing
Timing is key when it comes to getting the most out of your money. The majority of the Seven Wonders of the World are cheapest to see from April to June, with the exception of the Taj Mahal which is often thought to be cheaper in November. These are the off-season months that not only mean you’ll get to save money, but you might also find there are fewer crowds along the way.
Pre-book Your Tickets
The Seven Wonders don’t always come cheap, and there can be no escaping the entrance fees if you want to get up close to the structures. However, there are still many ways you can save money on your trip. Pre-booking your tickets will usually offer up a small discount while watching out for any sales or promotions could save even more money in the long run.
Shop For Accomodation
These wonders will often be surrounded by a number of hotels. However, don’t immediately settle or convenience if you want to get the most out of your money. The closer the hotel usually means the more expensive the price tag. Thankfully, using hostels or B&Bs can both help to keep your accommodation costs to a minimum.
Spread The Journey
While it might be tempting to try and see all Seven Wonders of the World at once, it might be best to try and spread your visit as much as possible. Saving up to get the most out of every stop could be a better use of your money than trying to afford around-the-world tickets that will give you mere moments with each location on the list. They shouldn’t be going anywhere, and there is always next month to enjoy your trip.
There are many things that have got us talking, but it seems as though these structures are so impressive that they have gone down as wonders of the world. Now, it could be time to take in the wonders with our very own eyes.
