The Places You Didn’t Think You Could Afford to Go on Holiday to But Really Can

Do you sometimes feel too limited in your choice of where you could go on holiday to? If you want to get away on a modest budget then you might find yourself going round in circles looking at the same old destinations all the time.

The good news is that there are some places in the world which you could probably afford to go to even if you didn’t think you could. The following are some examples of destinations you shouldn’t strike off your list too soon.


It is easy to think about the world’s highest building, the world’s most luxurious hotels and the glitzy shopping malls and believe that Dubai is only for millionaires. There is no doubt that this is a fairly expensive place to spend time in but you might be surprised to find that it isn’t out of your reach. By choosing from good value Dubai holiday packages you can stretch your budget a lot further. You will also be pleased to find out that eating in the classy restaurants run by celebrity chefs isn’t the only way of enjoying your dining here. Dubai also has a lot of options offering traditional food in a more authentic setting at a very low cost.

Buenos Aires   

If you are from the UK and looking for a good value break you probably look close to home. After all, somewhere like Buenos Aires is too far away for a cheap holiday, isn’t it? Well, the flight is going to be fairly expensive but once you are there you will find that it is one of the best value destinations on the planet. The city has a wonderful tourist infrastructure, with cracking restaurants and classy hotels galore. However, the Argentine peso is currently pretty depressed, so your cash will go a long way here. This is probably the best place in the world to eat a high quality but low cost steak right now and the bargains don’t stop with the food. If you can get a flight out here for a reasonable price it could turn out to be more of a good value holiday than a trip to somewhere a lot closer to home.


The Asian country of Thailand has some very tempting tourist destinations, such as Bangkok, Pattaya and Phuket. As with Buenos Aires, the biggest cost is going to be your flight across there, although bargain flights to Thailand can be had if you shop around. Once you are there you will find a welcoming and interesting country in which you don’t need a huge amount of money to have a great time. As well as the fact that life is pretty cheap here, you will also find that there are lots of free and inexpensive things to do in Thailand. Whether you enjoy looking around historic temples, wandering along the beach or people watching, you don’t need to spend a fortune to have an unforgettable day in this country.
