Now a days there are video logs for many tourists destination. You can go through YouTube and check people suggesting cheaper options, be it accommodation or traveling ways you will have plenty of options there. Hope it will help little bit.
Budget trip requires a little bit of planning beforehand. firstly, it's a good idea to plan ahead to get discounts in bus/train/ hotel booking. Secondly, traveling during the off season is a great way to avoid price surges and tourist crowd. Also, instead of booking a hotel beforehand I have found it better to first arrive at the location and look around for hotels or cottages. lastly, if trying the local cuisine is not big on the menu then you can always carry a kettle to boil your egg and make a sandwich on the go since food takes up a considerable amount in planning a trip.
Everything is about pre planning. 1) Do a virtual internship in your expertised area and gather funds for your trip. 2) Always look out for trains as they are the cheapest. 3) Use Airbnb, bookingcom blogs, forums etc and look out for homestay as they are cheaper and you might get in touch with the locals.
4) Try not to spend more on fancy restaurants ( Maybe cook food and take it along which could last long )
The most important thing in planning a budget trip is to collect the maximum information that you can get, it can be from online sources like vlogs blogs or from your friends. Choose the cheapest medium of transportation to the place and carry packed food items so that you can save a lot. Avoid booking rooms online and find some cheap and good hotels when you reach your destination. Choosing the right time to visit a place also help you reduce the budget. Try not to travel to your destinations in peak seasons but also make sure that it won't affect the travelling experiences. Bon Voyage my friend!!!
