Bulgaria has clearly demonstrated to be one of the favorite countries in the world. It was impressive: the country's affordability, friendly individuals, amazing history, landscapes, beaches and nightlife. I came with few expectations. All about this nation was a victory. The nation has a lengthy history and its place in the globe has ensured that it is a gateway to Turkish and European culture.
It's that world region's melting pot. As you walk around the nation, you will see Roman ruins, extraordinary Black Sea beaches, astonishing forests, and medieval towns. This nation is in the radar and does not receive the complete attention it deserves. However, this works for you as you run around in a few crowds.
Travel in Bulgaria
Here are some tips for budgeting your money and finding good deals when traveling to Bulgaria.
Avoid Sunny Beaches
Going to a beach full of tourists and fake attractions isn't worth your time.There are beach chairs everywhere blocking any reason to be there. Instead, hit one of the coastal beaches more off the beaten path. .
Forego the Hotel: Stay at a Hostel
Staying in a hostel can reduce your lodging costs when traveling, as not only do you have free breakfast, but also free lunch (which is also usually supplied with free drinks like coffee). Basically, you get to have at some places two meals per day when you stay in a hostel without breaking the bank--while meeting some interesting characters along the way.
Bulgaria has a few hostels that would be worth your time. Be sure to check them out as you will gain a different perspective of culture when you stay in a hostel.
Eat at the Bakeries for a Low-Cost Meal
Bulgarian bakeries have a wide and cheap selection of pastries and products to fill you in the morning. There are many cheap and delicious meals to be had here. So, when you don’t fill your bag from your free hostel food, you can grab a fresh bakery item for cheap.
Consider Going in Their Winter Months
June through September is Bulgaria's peak summer season, with a lot of visitors visiting family and vacationing during those few months out of the year. During this period, airfares and lodging expenses tend to be higher than the rest of the year.
That’s exactly why winter is the perfect time to travel in Bulgaria for budget-conscious travelers. This time period is when you can enjoy less crowded destinations, plenty of picturesque beauty and great skiing possibilities in the snow.
Try not to do Christmastime travel to Bulgaria. Christmas in Bulgaria is very popular with tourists from all over the world.
Usually, if you are going to plan ahead, you will find some very good Couchsurfing hosts all over the country, and you have quite a selection to choose from to fit your comfort level. If you play your cards right, you will not only have a free place to stay, but a local host who can help you find out what to see and where to go.
