Sit back and enjoy the complimentary wine on South African Airways as you fly to the Mother City. Cape Town, South Africa, has some of the most beautiful hiking spots in the world. Adrenaline junkies will love the Three Peaks Challenge, a route that takes climbers over Lion’s Head, Table Mountain, and Devil’s Peak in one day. Pack food for your trek, like an orange from a street vendor or a BBQ chicken sandwich from high-end grocery store Woolworths that will set you back less than $2.50. Another challenging (and free) hike is at the Twelve Apostles mountain peaks in Camps Bay. Locals and tourists alike enjoy hitting the trail at sunrise to see the view from the Rhodes Memorial on Table Mountain and the full moon at night on Lion’s Head.

Learn how to avoid the 10 money traps you fall for every time you travel.
Fun fact: Travelers head to Hanoi to get custom tailoring for a fraction of the cost. You can have button-down shirts custom-made or a full, stylish wardrobe made for less than the cost of a pair of designer jeans.
