Money Saving Tips

You do not need to enter museums and theaters. Simple admiring them outside is already worth more than what you should pay for. Besides, it is free.
Try booking your accommodations through Hostel, Dorm rooms and Airbnb if you are on a tight budget.
As mentioned above, these types of accommodations also tend to have common kitchen space. Prep for your food. Buy fresh produce and ingredients from the local farmer’s market or grocery store. You may spend some time and effort, but at least you are saving some money.
You do not need to buy souvenirs. Photos and videos are good enough as they would serve as a memory of your travel for the years to come. However, if you have an extra budget, why not?
Try walking around the City. In cities, places tend to be knitted together. You may find hidden gems you may not even consider visiting until you walk past them. At the same time, you are saving your transportation costs.
