Surprisingly Affordable Vacation Spots

Nobody wants to have an unmemorable, dull vacation, even if they aren’t able to spend a lot of money on their upcoming trip. After all, when you finally get some time away from work and other obligations, the last thing that you want to do is take a vacation that ends up disappointing you. Fortunately, there are a lot of very beautiful, exciting vacation destinations that won’t cost you an arm and a leg. Here are a few of the more notable options.



Although Nepal is largely known as a mountain climbing destination, there’s much more to do there than just ascend one of the world’s tallest peaks. In addition to eight of the highest ten summits in the world, Nepal is home to foothills that provide more casual climbers and hikers with outstanding, picturesque views. In addition, the local boutique hotel and restaurant scene is very vibrant and affordable, giving you much to remember once you’ve returned home.

Australia’s Great Barrier Reef

If you love aquatic life, you simply have to visit the Great Barrier Reef at least once. Located in the Australian state of Queensland, the reef stretches for a total of 1,800 miles of the nation’s eastern coast. Not only will you get to engage in the best snorkeling and scuba diving the world has to offer, but you’ll also get to unwind by night in the fun cities of Queensland.

The Bahamas Island of Exuma

Exuma is the largest island of the Bahamas and offers all of the beauty and majesty that you’d expect out of the area. Whether you’re laying on a white sand beach, navigating the beautifully clear waters, or exploring the nearby city of George Town, you’ll never be stuck without something to do when at Exuma. Best of all, the top-notch scuba diving, memorable Bahaman cities, and unforgettable times you’ll have won’t cost you nearly as much as similar destinations around the world would.

Dresden, Germany

A beautiful city for years and years, Dresden was unfortunately besieged during World War II and has been struggling to rebuild and reconstruct ever since. The city’s determined residents have largely succeeded and Dresden is just a few years from becoming a bona fide tourist attraction. Before that happens, go and enjoy the incomparable nightlife and amazing culture destinations. Doing so won’t set you back as much as you’d expect, and it’ll be quite a deal compared to what prices are likely to be in a few more years.
