1. Spread your money out. Never carry all your money in one place. This isnít just for security reasons, its for bargaining as well. I suggest carrying varying amounts of cash in 3 different spots and knowing what the amounts are so that you never pull out too much.

2. Eat local. This is especially true if youíre going on the cheap, donít be afraid to eat the cooked foods at the road-side kiosks.

3.The bonus tip is this: make friends locally and listen to them. They know the area and can point you towards people and places that youíll get a lot out of. They also know most of the dangerous and dark corners of the region that you should stay away from. People, at the end of the day, are your greatest assets when traveling, not your gear, knowledge or prior experience in the region.
