For many people, booze can be a budget breaker. Whether you are staying in high end hotels, which often charge considerably more per drink than most bars, or roughing it at hostels, overlooking this key cost can be a big mistake. Depending on where or how you are traveling, finding ways that you can drink on the cheap, while still enjoying experiences and meeting people can cut costs considerably. In most countries, drinking in public is not only legal, but perfectly acceptable. In others, discretion is required. Whether it is at outdoor concerts, fairs, other events, or even in many restaurants for those traveling in Asia, buying alcohol at convenience stores rather than from restaurants and hotels can save a few dollars for just about anyone, and considerably more for those who really like to imbibe.
