$100 in Brest, Belarus: how expensive or cheap is travel?


Hey hey! And welcome back to another tip
Thursday with me, Conor Clyne, the Language Tsar and PureVPN for virtual
private networks. I’m gonna link those guys below and I’ll be shooting a video
pretty soon on Virtual Private Networks but in the meantime you should check out
their link in the description and today is the first video in a series that I’m
going to be making for you guys as I travel around and I’m gonna be showing
you what you should budget for as you travel to different cities and today I’m
in Brest, Belarus which is the first city where I’m going to be making these kind of
videos for … and I’m showing you what you can get for $100, about 80 euros, so that
you can budget better when you’re traveling around. Come with me around
Brest, Belarus. Let me show you what you can get for your 100 bucks! So let’s start with accommodation. Now
Brest is really good value for a place to stay. It’s about 25 to 30 US dollars
to get an apartment on Airbnb for example in the city center so that’s
gonna be about 20 to 25 euros we’ll say more or less. So now food what should you
budget for food in Brest. Now I would say it costs between 10 and 15 US dollars so
about 8 to 12 euros to have a two course meal at an above average restaurant with
drinks in the city centre, in the center of the city. That was what I was seeing
as a general price range. Of course this fluctuates depending on you know your
preferences and obviously you can spend more and you can spend less but that’s what I
was seeing when I for example went to the traditional restaurant and had
draniki and other traditional Belarusian dishes.
That’s more or less what I was spending. So next up are drinks – now to have a
cocktail, a very cocktail I must say at one the best bars in the center costs nine
Belarusian rubles which is about four dollars sixty U.S. so I think that’s
around three euros eighty. So that’s kind of the price range that’s an upper price
range that you were gonna spend in Brest. Now if you wanna have a beer
it’s probably around yeah round two dollars depending where
for local beer so 1 euro sixty and if you want to have a coffee like
you’ve probably noticed if you follow my Instagram especially – my Instagram handle is
@languagetsar then a flat white is about a euro 20 so that’s probably about
yes one dollar forty in U.S. terms so that’s how much a coffee costs at
actually I think the best cafe in the city and that’s kind of a specialty
coffee to a certain extent so obviously you can get that cheaper if you’re not
such a coffee addict like I am personally. So next transport I didn’t
take public transport because I really didn’t need to take a bus inside the
city itself everything was within walking distance except for maybe the
fortress which is a little bit of a walk I think I walked like 20 to 30 minutes
to get there but it was a beautiful day so I really didn’t care and a
taxi in the city center it’s gonna cost you about four Belarusian rubles more or
less and that is about well that’s not even that’s about two US dollars about
one euro sixty so that gives you an idea about how much it costs for
transport in the city and Uber didn’t work.
I just called taxi drivers or I took them off the street and that’s how much
I paid but remember I do speak Russian so I was definitely getting the real price.
I’m not sure if you show up speaking English whether they will put it on the
meter but the meters seemed to be all honest it’s not a place that has a lot of
tourists yet so I didn’t really feel like there was any reason to be
concerned about being ripped off with respect to taxis and if you’ve
seen some of my other videos you’ll know that I am not a fan of taxi drivers when I’m
traveling just I’ve had a lot of problems over the years with dishonesty
and at times violence so yeah not my favorite people but in Brst zero
problems whatsoever and then if you’re feeling like doing something cultural
like going to a museum that was actually included in my visa free documents, the
package I bought go to Brest and that cost me 60 polish zloty to use about 15
euros which is gonna be around 17/18 US dollars I guess and
that was already included so I didn’t actually have to pay extra it’s actually
about free and I was well I didn’t get it free but it was included so no extra money
spent so there you go that’s that’s how much the museum that actually went to
cost me in Brest. So let’s see what you can get for your $100. Well there’s
actually an awful lot included there right because you’re gonna have your
accommodation for sure well we’re assuming one night at least one night’s
accommodation that you could eat out in restaurants basically three times a day
probably have about five coffees if you’re a coffee addict like me and then
go to a bar have maybe two cocktails and four beers thrown in and then even go to
the museum the next day and actually that you won’t even have spent your
hundred dollars or 80 euros you probably have some change left over so that’s an
indication of the price level if you go on a trip to Brest. If you’ve been to
Belarus if you’ve been to any other countries in the region nearby like
Lithuania to the north or Poland a little bit to the west, Ukraine to
the South, Russia of course the East then drop me a comment below
let me know how you got on with the price level. Whether you found it cheap,
expensive? What kind of things you would like me to talk about in terms of prices
when I’m traveling to the different countries in the region that I’m
traveling to? And yeah help everybody out in the comments section. We’re growing this community
of people who are interested in traveling to this region so whatever you
guys actually leave below is really valuable because there’s a community
growing of people who are interested in going to Eastern Europe and that’s part
of the reason why I make these videos to help you and I also have now decided
based on the feedback from you guys on my Instagram, Facebook and Twitter
accounts when I did that poll a couple of weeks ago that I’m gonna create a
video course called ‘How to survive a trip to Eastern Europe’ to give you a
step-by-step guide about how you should put all the things you need to know
before you go to Eastern Europe on a trip and so that’s gonna be a really
valuable resource that I’m working on right now and I’m really looking forward
to when it comes out so for sure sign up for my free video course that’s below on
traveling. That’s today’s video the first of this type of Tip Thursday where I’m
going to be showing you what you can get for 80 euros, 100 dollars approximately
as you travel around Europe. Let me know what kind of items you’re interested in
seeing the price of. Today I went through accommodation, food, entertainment a
little bit but maybe there’s other things that you are interested in
knowing about the price levels for so write me in the comment section below
and I will see you in the next video this ‘до свидания’ which is ‘goodbye’ in Russian
from Brest in Belarus!
