Travel Tips: To Take Head-On An Expensive Vacation In Moscow

Russia's Ruble may be failing in value but it does not instantly mean the rich European country has become more affordable for foreign travelers. Russia's capital of Moscow is expensive because the city's appearance itself is already a treat and common coffee is priced at $12. Travelers taking on Russia for the first time must beware things other than their budget to have the best out of their vacation.

My Destination writes writes about Russian travels being as cheap as $100 daily if one can utilize the public transport system. The travel tips website notes that the Moscow Metro is one of the best transport systems in the world. The Troyka card, it mentions, costs only half a dollar, making it an efficient medium for transportation than taking a cab.

Nightlife in Russia can be expensive but seemingly harmless pubs can do more budget damage than one can chew. Saint Petersburg Beer Bars offer a budget conscience-free selection of inebriation ranging about $3 for a half liter and $4 pizzas for something to chew on.

Based on Lonely Planet's evaluation of Russia's restaurants and cafes, it would be wise to avoid these specialty venues if one wants to avoid paying a higher amount of tip for service. The travel website indicates tipping is "customary" in restaurants and cafes. Travelers eating in stalls or bars need not to tip their servers.

Moscow dining need not be expensive -- if one focuses on Russia's street food options. Russia's stalls offer some delectable cultural dishes including baked potato or pancakes. Travelers dining in stalls often spend only $6 for a fulfilling meal. Multiply by two and Moscow tourists only spend about $12 for food.

Contrary to what most travelers believe, hotels in Moscow are not all at a $1000 range -- luxury hotels are known to charge such exorbitant amounts. Pension inns or even bunk beds for backpackers cost only around $12 a day. Better accommodations such as apartment hotels can go for about $34 a day -- not a bad deal given one's impressions of Russian accommodation costs.
