And there is a plethora of great destinations to choose from, whether you opt for the Eastern islands of Koh Phangan and Koh Tao, or head west to the likes of Phuket and Koh Phi Phi. There are plenty of 5 star hotelsin Phuket which are really affordable and will allow you to stay in paradise surroundings without breaking the bank.
The UK might not be the first place that springs to mind when thinking of budget destinations, but as holiday companies and businesses fight to survive in these tough times, they are offering fantastic deals which means you can have a wonderful break without hurting the purse strings too much. From doing all inclusive breaks to going on a bed and breakfast holiday, you can explore the stunning attractions the UK has to offer without worrying to much about blowing a huge budget.
India is another country where you can live like a millionaire on a budget. You can go on luxury holiday to India without spending too much money, and see some incredible sights whilst lapping up the pampering. From beach holidays in Goa to visiting world icons like the Taj Mahal, there’s no danger of getting bored, and when you need to rest the legs and sit still for a while, you can be sure that you’ll stay in a fantastic hotel and be waited on like a king. Holidays to India really are the perfect way to soak up luxury on a budget.
So don’t let the world’s economic struggles get you down in 2013, embrace them as an opportunity to travel to new places where your budget goes further and you can still have the holiday of a lifetime.
