nighclub, dancing, partying, Miami

Miami, Ibiza and Las Vegas may be some of the best party spots on the globe, but a trip to those places can cost a lot of money.

We wanted to know where in the world it would be cheapest to indulge in some common vicesspecifically booze, beer, wine, and marijuana.

We can't vouch for the nightlife in most of these places, but they certainly aren't expensive places to party.

#20 Guinea-Bissau

  • Beer (500ml): $0.31
  • Wine (750ml): $0.48
  • Aguardente spirit, 30-40% alcohol (750ml): $1.12
  • Cannabis herb (1g): $7.00

Guinea-Bissau may be one of Africa's smallest nations, but it has become one of the biggest cocaine traffickers to Europe.

To come up with this ranking we looked at every country with average beer, wine, and spirit prices listed in the World Health Organization's Global Status Report on Alcohol 2004, the most recent year for which those figures are available. For those countries, we also looked the average price of 1g of Cannabis herb listed in the UN World Drug Report 2006 or on this marijuana global price map.

We averaged the prices to achieve a total score. The lower the total score, the higher the country placed in our rankings.




#19 Sri Lanka

  • Beer (500ml): $0.37
  • Wine (750ml): $7.80
  • Kassipu, 30-40% alcohol (750ml): $0.52
  • Cannabis herb (1g): $0.015

Kassipu, Sri Lanka's "special drink," is a type of moonshine made from, according to one blogger, "sugar, bananas, chameleons, barbed wire, rat snake, garbage, and God knows what else. It can be used in cars as a substitute for gasoline."

#18 Eritrea

  • Beer (500ml): $0.48
  • Wine (750ml): $1.60
  • Spirit (750ml): $1.60
  • Cannabis herb (1g): $4.00

If you're willing to give up freedom of the press for a cheap drink, than Eritrea is the place for you; Reporters Without Borders placed Eritrea dead last — even behind North Korea, Iran, and Cuba — in its 2009 Press Freedom Index.
