Are you updating your travel bucket list? If you plan on taking a vacation this year, you probably have two goals in mind: making memories to last a lifetime and getting the most out of your money. If you’re still looking for a place to go, these destinations offer exhilarating travel experiences worth every penny:
Looking for a photogenic destination filled with beautiful sunsets and sunrises? These views are accessible from reasonably priced hotels in Dochula, between Thimphu and Punakha. If you love culture, visit the Tiger’s Nest monastery that is perched on a cliff overlooking the Paro Valley. The waterfalls and sounds from the monks offer a one-of-a-kind experience.
Worried you will forget the details of this moment of peace? Pack a travel notebook to jot down some of the memories you enjoy. On the way out of the city, take a piece of Bhutan home with you. Known for their unique hand-woven textiles, such as silk robes and wraparound dresses, there are a variety of choices to satisfy your souvenir cravings.
If you are an animal lover, South Africa offers views of wildlife in an unforgettable natural environment. Take advantage of a safari experience or lounge on the beaches in Cape Town. These excursions are enjoyable even during the off-season between May and July, and cheaper ticket prices come with an extra bonus of cooler weather. There also are smaller lodges that offer the same amenities as some of the bigger resorts at discounted hotel prices.
While you’re here, don’t forget your Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone for recording the most cherished memories of your trip. It is durable enough to take on your adventure, and the large battery can last up to 20 hours of talk time and 13 days of standby time, so you don’t have to worry about your phone dying or missing out while you’re waiting for your phone to charge.
An international destination may not be in your budget, but it doesn’t mean you need to shortchange your memories. Capitalize on cheaper airfares to Hawaii during the month of May, and experience everything from volcanoes, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing and a traditional luau. If you love whales, plan an excursion to see them in their natural habitat. Don’t forget to pack your binoculars to catch every detail. This destination offers something for everyone, making it a satisfying trip worth every dime.
Relish the value of a visit to Mexico. There are plenty of flight options to Mexico all throughout the year, so do your research to find a reasonable price. Relaxing beach towns, such as Chacala, offer guesthouse rooms for as little as $40 and the peaceful surroundings are an added bonus. Find great deals in the Yucatan Peninsula as well as cheap bus trips to Merida and Tulum. Here you can visit Mayan relics and the wonders of this cultural heritage. It makes an excellent couple’s destination with private cabanas. And if you don’t want to bother anyone with picture taking, pack your Selfie On A Stick.
Who says you can’t get an international experience in a domestic destination? Experience a Broadway musical, dine on delicious street food and walk the streets of Times Square for great people watching. Want to explore the art scene? Many of the art galleries in SoHo are free to the public. You also can find tickets to Broadway shows, if you stand in the will call line for discounted tickets.
