Cheap Asia Apartments
No surprise to find Bangalore as the cheapest city for monthly rental on a 1 bedroom apartment. After all, it has been featured before on Nomadic You as the budget destination with the lowest cost of living. But, Antalya in Turkey is a bit of a surprise at number two with city center rentals averaging $198.82. Sunny beaches and an airport hub serviced by many low-cost carriers only add to Antalya’s appeal.
If you fancy living in one of Europe’s cultural city centers, then Athens is a good choice too. A 1 bedroom city center apartment will only set you back around $283.75 per month. Keep an eye out for Nomadic You’s tips on exploring Athens by transit coming soon.
