Planning the perfect vacation can be a very expensive undertaking, but thinks that every traveller should have the chance to see the world—regardless of budget. While popular cities tend to be the most expensive to visit, trivago has scoured the world’s most-searched destinations to build an affordable itinerary for 2016.

As trivago’s 2016 Best Value Index (tBVI) shows — calculated using the annual average price of a standard double room and the city’s average hotel rating for the most-searched world-wide destinations* — if you’re looking for a popular and economical city to travel to in the next year, it’s time to head to Eastern Europe, or Canada.
