Tip: Try to avoid planning a trip on the peak time of your destination as it will not only cost you more but also most of the destinations remain crowded at the peak time. It is always better to travel either during starting or ending of the season.
Accommodation :If your list has multiple cities and hotels for you just mean staying overnight, you can also check eco huts, hostels and homestays as they are economical and perfect for backpackers and solo travellers. You can also stay for free by living in localities! There are many websites which offer you to stay with localities and experience their culture. Tip: Before choosing your place of accommodation, do read the reviews and ratings of the place. Also if you choose to stay with a local do not forget to verify the details before you step in. You would never want to compromise your safety and privacy for cheap rates.
EAT LOCAL: Yes this is the utmost advice to save costs on food! As it is said “When in Rome, do as the Roman’s do” The local food will always cost you a lot lesser as the ingredients are easily available and it gives you the insights of one’s culture as well. Also keep a track of local markets away from tourist attractions as the markets around tourist places make a larger hole in the vessel. You can also check for the hotel while planning your accommodation which includes breakfast or other meals too.
Keeping all of these in mind you can easily plan a budget for your food.
