Cook Your Own Meals
If you are able to score a hotel with a kitchenette, all the better. This way, you can sample local foods and cook them yourself. Even in the world’s most expensive cities, a trip to a local fresh food market is relatively inexpensive. Feel free to ask the merchants how to cook foods you are not familiar with. You’ll save a ton of money by dining in and you’ll also learn much more about the local culture and diet by food shopping and cooking on your own.
