If you’re planning your next trip and are on a budget, don’t fret: you don’t necessarily have to put up with capsule beds and cramped hostels in order to maximise your stay. This is especially true in Asia, where the nightly rates for 5-star hotels are cheaper than you would think.

Popular travel search engine, KAYAK.sg, has released their findings on the average nightly cost of 5-star stays in countries across Asia. The most expensive stay (Hong Kong) is almost double that of the cheapest stay (Sri Lanka) — which might make you reconsider choosing a 5-star option.
