Student life problems aren’t limited to school. Right after you step your foot in college, it struck you that the circle of the life has broadened and so is the struggle to keep up with everything. From focusing on the academic work to splitting time between internship, traineeship and all the other “Ships” that can help us shape our career for better. The constant stress of increasing competition and proving your worth to the world get our mind exhausted. Now we all need a break from such pressure, don’t we?

Student life is the most valuable time. We learn almost every important aspect of life. However, it isn’t limited to academic stress and career burden, it also revolves around hosting pre-party drinks, gang night out, weekend parties and exploring new destinations.

We all know that we live off on mere pennies in student life and making a traveling plan means deranging our bank balance for next 3 months. But, the heart wants to wander and explore. In search of fun and enlightenment, we do not refrain from traveling and end up messing the balanced financial equation. What if we were to tell you that we have few destinations where you can travel and it won’t hurt your pocket?

That’s amazing, right? So here we have some low budget destinations that are beautiful and are perfect for any student to visit.
