But you can always rely on TikTok to throw up some decent travel ideas for you, and one TikToker has revealed her favourite place to visit this year, dubbing it Europe's 'most underrated' destination and revealing that the whole trip cost her under £200!

@emsbudgettravel offers countless budget travel tips for those wanting to visit the world without paying premium prices and in one recent video that has currently been viewed over 400,000 times on TikTok, Em revealed her favourite destination so far in 2024.

She describes the European country as a ‘hidden gem’ and in good news reveals that Ryanair has recently started running flights there.

“This is one of the most underrated countries in Europe and one of the cheapest I've been to nine countries so far in 2024,” she says.

“And this was definitely my favourite is such a hidden gem and even better, Ryanair has recently started flying here really cheaply.”

So, where is this mystical, beautiful, affordable paradise?

“So I've just come back from four days in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which is a country in the Balkans in Eastern Europe,” Em says.

“I only spent £158.44 in total for everything including flights, accommodation, food, activities, transport. Literally everything.”

And judging by Em’s video, that looks to be an absolute bargain as she shows off stunning scenery, beautiful old architecture and quaint hillside towns.


“So it definitely lives up to the reputation of being one of the cheapest countries to visit in Europe,” she continues. “We stayed in the capital of Sarajevo, which is a beautiful city and it felt really safe.”

She added: “The locals were very friendly. Even the bus drivers. The whole country is filled with stunning scenery, mountains, rivers, lakes and waterfalls.

“If you come to Bosnia you also have to visit Mostar, which is a small city about two hours away from the capital on the train. So it's an easy day trip, but this was the highlight of the trip for me.

“The city felt so magical and it was perfect base to explore for hours. People also jumped off the bridge here into the river, which was interesting too.

“Overall, it was an amazing trip and I definitely wanted more than the four days I had here so this is somewhere I'll definitely be revisiting to explore more.”

We’ve checked it out for ourselves, and Ryanair currently has flights to Sarajevo International Airport for as little as £19.99 from London Stansted Airport.

Four star hotels in Sarajevo can be as low as £45 a night too, which is just over £20 each if you go with a partner or mate, so be sure to check out our discounts through, and to make sure you get the very best deals on your accommodation!
