Trav­el­ling to Hanoi won’t pinch pock­ets

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - LifeStyle -

Con­sid­er­ing the cost of ac­com­mo­da­tion, food and tourist ac­tiv­i­ties, the Viet­namese cap­i­tal has been named the most af­ford­able city for trav­el­ers, top­ping a list of 20 global desti­na­tions com­piled by TripAd­vi­sor’s TripIn­dex. The cost of a three-night stay for two peo­ple in the city is just US$497 (around ` 33,366).

The study com­pared the cost of a three-night stay in a four-star ho­tel, three vis­its or ac­tiv­i­ties, one lunch or din­ner out per day and a re­turn taxi fare to the restau­rant. Hanoi, Viet­nam topped the list as the most af­ford­able des­ti­na­tion, fol­lowed by Mum­bai, In­dia. At the other end of the scale, the Big Ap­ple (the only US city in­cluded in the sur­vey) was named the most ex­pen­sive des­ti­na­tion, with a wal­let-bust­ing bud­get of US$1826 (around ` 1,22,588).
