10 Cities That Cost Less Than 400 Dollars a Month to Live

If you’re ready for an adventure but don’t exactly have the money, fear not; there are many destinations around the world where your dollar will go far. Here’s our list of ten cities that cost less than $400 a month to live.

1. Anantapur, India

What’s great about Anantapur is that it’s centrally located to most major cities in India; you can easily get to cities such as New Delhi and Mumbai via highway or train. Here, you will discover the Lepakshi Temple known for its mural paintings of the Vijayanagar Kings.

2. Corozal, Belize

If you’re looking for a more peaceful, slower-paced life, this beach town will deliver. Enjoy daily yoga classes, delicious Mexican food, coastal walks and a one-bedroom apartment for no more than $190 a month.

3) Banda Aceh, Indonesia

This coastal town will get you a one-bedroom for $70 a month, and after the tsunami hit in 2004, the city has rebuilt itself to be much more sustainable living-wise. This fiercely religious town will give you unique perspective if looking to deepen your spiritual practice.

4) Battambang, Cambodia

Battambang is Cambodia’s second most populous city and a popular tourist destination with the nearby ancient temples, Buddhist shrines, and bamboo railway. Is has a nice blend of modern city with small town friendliness where you’ll find a one-bedroom for $76 a month.

5) Bharatpur, Nepal

Sitting on the banks of the Narayani River, you can find a one-bedroom apartment for an astonishing $30 a month.

6) Leon, Nicaragua

Consider Nicaragua the next Costa Rica. Filled with beautiful volcanoes, beaches and lakes, it has become an expat must. Other great options are Leon’s rival, Granada and for a more beach-surf-yoga-drink-repeat option, San Juan del Sur.

7) Cebu, Philippines

You can get a room for $150 a month in this highly developed, gorgeous beachy town known for its spectacular diving, namely off the northern tip of Cebu at Bantayan and Malapascua islands, and the southwest coast of Moalboal. In Cebu City, there are great bars and eateries.

8) Bangalore, India

India made the list twice because it really is one of the most inexpensive places to live in the world. India’s third largest city, Bangalore has a population of 8.4 million people. If you’re in tech, this is the place for you — it’s known as the ‘Silicon Valley’ of India. Rent a one bedroom for as little as $200 a month.

9) Lake Atilian, Guatemala

You can get a two-story house for $400 a month. Needless to say, a one-bedroom house in this iridescently gorgeous destination wouldn’t cost much. Enjoy Central America’s fresh fruit, gallo pinto, rice beans and plantains.

10. Pokhara, Nepal

Along with India, Nepal is the place to be if you want to live cheap. This destination, unaffected by the earthquake, mirrors the Himalayas. Plus, anywhere can be reached by bike.
