What You Could Get in Yakutsk for $10 – Touch the Untouched Nature and Lifestyle in One of the Coldest Cities in Siberia

If you think you’ve never heard of anything about Yakutsk before, then worry not… You’re not alone.

In fact, the first time I heard about Yakutsk was when Nicolas and Lena from Trips to Siberia reached out to me as they wanted to contribute for the $10, covering this city. As I’m writing this, I literally just googled about Yakutsk and I found out that the temperature could reach up to -64° Celcius during winter.

Dude, I totally can’t imagine how cold it could be around there as I get so used to hot weather. Blame the Southeast Asian in me who get used to tropical weather around here. 😛

But anyway, it’s only fair to start seeing how far you could go with $10 USD in one of the cities in Siberia. Also, this is gonna be the first city in Russia covered in the series, yeay!!
