This is one of the most beautiful and most popular islands present in Greece. Its white stone buildings near the seashore leave the visitors mesmerizing. It is interesting to see that all the villas here are off white in color and the churches present here are also white in color but with a blue dome on the top. Due to its spectacular look, it has been the favorite spot for Bollywood and Hollywood movie shootings.

Oia is the most popular place here to see where a lot of people visit, and this makes it a top photographed destination in the world. Akrotíri Archaeological Site, Ancient Thira, and the black sand sea of Perrissa are the other popular destinations or places to visit on this island.

Now come the pricing and budget required to visit this place. Well as this is present in the nation where the Olympics was introduced it would be obvious that this island is a bit costly but still as I used to say for other places as well this depends on the person who’s visiting and his requirements. So the cost per day may range from $30 to $187 apart from the traveling expenses. So seeing all this I would like to rate this island 8 out of 10. Though it is one of the best islands to visit we cannot say that this is the cheapest island to visit.

5. Bali, Indonesia:
