Mombasa Anked top 5 Budget-Friendly Tourist Havens in the World [Prices]


According to the Holiday Money Report 2023 released by the UK’s Post Office, Mombasa was named as the 4th most cost-effective destination among the 40 global locations which were considered.

The study noted that the cost of tourism has significantly gone up in some parts of the world such as Costa Rica and Mauritius.

While prices for food, drinks, and other necessities for tourists have increased in most cities and resorts, there are still some places where travellers can save money.

Six of the top ten best-value destinations for UK visitors have actually gotten cheaper.

The Post Office uses a “barometer basket” which is a set of common items and services that British tourists are likely to purchase while on vacation and uses the cost of these items to compare the value for money of different destinations.

Cape Town in South Africa emerged as the best value destination in the survey because the South African rand has decreased in value and restaurants and bars offer competitive prices.

The cost of the barometer basket is £51 (Sh8,533), which is 8.4 per cent cheaper than in 2022.
