    We asked the BuzzFeed Community for the most affordable international trip they've ever taken — and their answers proved that getting out of the country doesn't mean you have to get into debt.

    Yes, you will probably have to pay more for your plane ticket than you would for a domestic flight. But if you choose your destination wisely, you could end up spending much less while you're there. (And you should always follow these tips for finding the cheapest airfare possible, too.)

    So with that in mind, here are some amazing places to go where your dollar can get you pretty far.


    1. Peru

    2. South Africa

    3. China

    4. Vietnam

    5. Greece

    6. Jamaica

    7. Cartagena, Colombia

    "I actually used to live there, but just went back. Roundtrip airfare from the Northeast was $250. You can easily get a hostel for $7–15, although we stayed in an amazing hotel for $70 a night. Food, drinks, and fun are all completely reasonable; it's an absolutely amazing place to visit!" —Madelina Türner, Facebook
