The chilliest winter in recent history is solidly behind us and it's time to make some serious summer plans. But where can you go without breaking the bank?

TripAdvisor announced Thursday the results of their fourth annual TripIndex Cities, which compares a night out and an overnight stay in major vacation cities in the U.S. and around the world. The results reveal the most and least affordable cities across the globe.

The TripIndex calculates "typical costs for two for cocktails, a two-course dinner paired with a bottle of wine, round-trip taxi transportation, and a one night stay in a hotel during the summer travel months from June to August" according to TripAdvisor's press release.

If you're looking to drop some major dough, head to San Francisco, London or Paris, which top the list as the priciest cities to visit. If, on the other hand, you want to spend responsibly, check out the list of the most affordable cities below.
