Shanghai, China: Traveling for $20 A Day – Ep 1

Published by Darron Toy on



What's up! Kevin Cook here, and today I'm in Shanghai, the most expensive city in all of China and in my hand, I have 130 RMB which roughly converts to about 20 USD. I'm gonna see if this is enough money
to pay for breakfast, lunch, dinner accommodation, and transportation
for one whole day. Breakfast today is two baozi buns for only 3 yuan, which is about 50 cents. Not bad. Okay, gonna try my breakfast today. Oh my God! So juicy! This baozi just squirted all over my face. Pork and pork juice…
Healthy way to start the day. Five kuai for a little pineapple on a stick. Need to have a balanced breakfast. Put some fruit in there. Monkey! One kuai wasted. Alright, just got my ticket. 8 kuai for my lunch today: sheng jian bao at Yang's Dumplings. Hopefully it's worth the wait. A lot of people look like they're
ready to eat the same thing. Alright, let's go eat this! It's fried on one side. It's got sesame
seeds on top, some chives. This sheng jian bao is outrageously delicious. That guy's borrowing my car. Perfect day to be out on the bund. People are out here trying to take pictures with us. People that don't even know us are asking
us to take photographs with them. 头发好看 What'd she say?
-She likes your hair, man. 你喜欢? I think this is the manager of this place.
-Yes! This is where we're gonna have dinner tonight. 一份扬州炒饭. 扬州炒饭啊?
-对. 你中文说得蛮好.
-谢谢 Here's my dinner. This is 18 yuan, this is 12 yuan. Which makes this a 30 kuai dinner. Egg fried rice. Can't go wrong with it. Simple, filling… With a little beer on the side. Oh man, I'm so full right now. Just finished my dinner. Now, after this beer and this rice, I'm
feeling a little bit sleepy. Think it's time I go find a place to stay tonigt. Getting a workout for free. Zero dollars. After a long day of exploring Shanghai I think it's about time to get a little sleep.

Hi nice work. Since you asked, I would like to know how you would travel on a shoe-string to western European countries such as France, Italy and Spain. Honest question and I am not restricting you to $20 a day.
Regards.

Listen up. If you are willing to live so cheaply and control your stomach, then you can travel for 20 dollars anywhere. There have been YouTubers who have spent a day in NYC on 10 dollars a day. You could travel for twenty dollars a day, but does that translate to quality? For breakfast, you could only afford two small baozi buns I wonder how long that can last you for. Egg fried rice and a beer is a very simple and cheap dish in China and that already cost you 30 yuan. Think about how much everything else on the menu cost.

Ultimately, you could live for twenty dollars a day anywhere but you could only afford the cheapest there is and live a low life.

go to Tokyo next

yrret1996 · July 30, 2019 at 4:44 pm

law aloysius · July 30, 2019 at 4:44 pm

Why the metro. Is cheap? Because it's owned by government, and the people don't need to pay much. Thats a good benefit for every one

刘静洁 · July 30, 2019 at 4:44 pm
