5 Trips to Take If You’re on a Budget

Being on a budget doesn’t mean you can’t go on a vacation – it only means picking the perfect one that will fit your means. Here we share five types of trips and a suggested destination to go with it:

Family time in Thailand

Traveling with family might not be everybody’s cup of tea, but Thailand will make it less of a family obligation and more of a bonding time. The capital Bangkok is brimming with tasty culinary delights, gilded huge temples, and mega shopping malls; while Phuket is perfect for families looking for more thrilling adventures like sea cave kayaking, snorkeling, white water rafting and island-hopping.

Morocco is a feast for the senses, one of those destinations that come packed with a punch. Spend some time haggling with the locals at a souk, share a cup of Moroccan tea with a stranger, book a safari along the Sahara or learn how to cook a tagine – no matter which activity you choose, you’re bound to come home a better and wiser version of yourself.

When you want a little bit of everything for a good amount of value, Sri Lanka is your best bet. Take the girls to the seaside town of Galle for a taste of European charm, home to boutique hotels, quaint shops and car-free streets. There’s also Nuwara Eliya, a hill country famous for its cold climate and tea plantations; Anuradhapura the sacred city with ancient ruins; or Mirissa for slow and simple days by the beach.

It’s a two hour trip from Manila and they’re lifting the visa requirements for PH passport holders soon, so there’s no excuse for you to skip on this destination. Cheap thrills await you, from local snacks and dishes lined up at the night markets to the efficient but affordable transport system that will get you from Point A to Point B in no time.

Europe has long been labeled as expensive but there are certain cities where your money will go a longer way, like Istanbul in Turkey. Expect a mix of historic and traditional sites like Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque, along with impressive landscapes such as the fairy chimneys in Cappadoccia and Pamukkale’s travertine terraces.
