Even though the country is not facing any major political issues, wars or natural disasters and even has a well-developed infrastructure it still is the least explored country in the world and hosted close to only 300,000 tourists in 2015. To overcome this the Moldovan governments have introduced a visa-free policy for American, Canadian, Swiss, Japanese and Turkish nationals. The living costs are one of the lowest in Europe. Moldova is waiting to be explored. The Chisinau Airport in the capital city of Chisinau is not a very busy airport and is hardly used by foreigners so in lieu of Chisinau Airport you may use Odessa's Airport in neighbouring Ukraine. It would take around two hours to reach Chisinau from Odessa.

The number of international tourists is increasing around the world day by day, places tend to get overcrowded which is why a lot of the economical destinations are losing their charm. Some of the above-mentioned destinations are mostly unexplored or are emerging onto the world stage so, unlike Thailand, they're economical but not very crowded, therefore, it's better to visit them as soon as possible before they become crowded. Thailand, however, has still kept its charm and has managed to keep things in order even after such a large influx of tourists which is why it deserved a spot on this list.  ...
