The price gap: one night in London vs a long weekend in Bulgaria

A night out in London may seem like a great idea for those in commuting distance to the capital city. But, its reputation as a pricey city is well-earned. According to the Telegraph, one night could set you back over £330, including a night of drinking, a hotel room, taxi ride and a two-course dinner. People have spent as much as £12 for a spirit based drink and between £6 and £8 for a small bottle of beer. Although, Timeout reported London has slipped from the top spot as the world’s most expensive city to live in, just behind Hong Kong and New York. But it’s still a pricey place to be. So instead of splashing the cash in London, why not head to Bulgaria for a long weekend, enjoy the Sunny Beach coastline and take advantage of the 70p beer and very affordable way of life. In fact, three nights in Bulgaria is cheaper than one lavish night out in London. Read on to find out more.
