For a long time I thought budget travelling was universal, meaning as long as you are ok with staying in hostels and sharing rooms with strangers you can pretty much travel to anywhere in the world. This apparently is not case. And unfortunately this is a make all-break all factor for travelling. If you can't travel to a country without spending $100 USD or more on accomodation per night, you cant really visit the country on a travellers budget.
Countries with backpacker accomodation and hostels are those countries with long histories and huge traffic of young, post-school, pre-work travellers. These include (from my current knowledge) the following:
Most of Europe: UK, Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Scandinavia, Greece, Romania, Bulgaria
Asia: China, South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong (limited), Most of South East Asia where backpacking is very popular!
Oceania: New Zealand, Australia, Pacific Islands (limited)
South and Central America where backpacking is extremely popular
Countries and continents I currently dont know about:
Can anyone help with This?
