As experienced budget travelers, we love to save money, but sometimes it’s just worth it to pay a bit more for something in Paris. After all, you probably flew from somewhere quite far away so why get the worst when a few cents more can get you something even better? Selective splurging won’t break the » Read more

Times Square New York
Definitely snap photos in Times Square, but don't mistake it for New York. Photo: Sri Dhaanush K
Over the past few months, EuroCheapo correspondents have been debunking common myths about Paris (no, not everyone is rude), London (not all polite), Barcelona (not all friendly) and Amsterdam (not all high), so I figured it was time to do a little New York myth-busting too. Like any, well, mythical city, New York is the » Read more

Park Guell
Park Güell is no longer free to visit for tourists, but it is still a must-see in Barcelona. Photo: batuceper
In 1984 UNESCO declared Barcelona’s Park Güell a World Heritage Site. It is one of the most impressive Gaudí projects in the city, and well worth the extra effort it takes to get up to the park from the city center. A visit to the park takes planning and the better part of a day. » Read more

London and Paris are two of Europe’s biggest tourist destinations, just a few hours away from each other by road or rail; about an hour’s distance in the air.

Writing about adventures in Paris may be wonderful, but everyone needs a holiday. That’s why I spent the month of July exploring the amazingly beautiful Turkey. After some R&R along the Lycian Coast (which I highly recommend as far as beach holidays go, by the way), I needed to figure out how to make my » Read more

Paris in Summer
Paris takes a little break in August, but not every business is on holiday. Photo: Jens S
We’ve made it again—it’s summertime in Paris! As you may already know, this means Paris has become somewhat of a ghost town. Now that August has hazily rolled over the City of Lights, all the locals have headed to their chateaux in Normandy or their hotels on the Mediterranean. What’s left?

Dare I say it, but London has been enjoying a great summer so far and long may it last. But sometimes we just need a change of scene, especially when temperatures are scorching.

Tucked between the chic rue St-Honoré, the brand-name department stores, and the Place Vendome, the Opera district doesn’t instill much hope for budget travelers. Crowned by the ornate Opéra Garnier, it might seem like this district is best left to the high rollers and Chanel-seekers. But fear not Cheapos, there is plenty to discover on » Read more
