Inexpensive Activities in Asia
When you're bored with going to the same places every year for vacation, you may want to look toward traveling to the east into Asia. You will experience a different kind of culture, and the monetary exchange rates will allow you to truly enjoy the experience. Most people don't consider the exchange rate when deciding where to book their vacation except in terms of how much they are going to spend, and while the dollar performs poorly against the Euro, things in Asia are much better and actually advantageous for travelers.
Bali, Indonesia is the perfect spot for those who enjoy sunbathing, water sports and walking along the beach. The island has all the activities anyone could want who is looking for the relaxation of an island getaway including tropical rain forests, temples and palaces, volcanoes, exquisite golf courses and many miles of beaches. The average temperatures ranges from a low of 75 F to 88 F, but if you are visiting between December and March you may experience some heavy rain from monsoons entering from the West. The excellent exchange rate between the American dollar and the Indonesian Rupiah allows travelers to enjoy a great vacation at extremely inexpensive costs.
If Bali is not the place for you but you still want to enjoy some fun in the sun, Thailand is another option for your vacation. One thing to consider is you definitely want to go to Bangkok while you are in Thailand with Phuket or another beautiful beach town necessary parts of your vacation travel in this Asian country. You will find prices for accommodations in Thailand similar to those in Bali because of the strength of the dollar compared to the Thai Baht.
If you're looking for a location that is more culturally diverse, you might want to consider Beijing and Hong Kong. With expensive accommodations, you can enjoy visiting the many museums, temples, amusement parks and beaches. The weather is similar to what you expect in the Northeast United States while Hong Kong has milder seasons than Beijing.
