Planning a trip on a tight budget? Forget mainland Europe. The strength of the euro will have you spending a fortune on food, lodging, and entertainment. Cross the United Kingdom off your list too. One British pound will cost you $2. But there are still many dollar-friendly possibilities:
- Eastern Europe, including Croatia and the Czech Republic (cut crystal vases for $40)
- Hong Kong ($2 for an authentic Chinese meal)
- New Zealand (double hotel room with free Internet and flat-screen TV, $68 a night)
- Vietnam (a tailored silk jacket for $20)
- South America (custom-made leather goods at rock bottom prices, including made-to-fit jackets for $150)
- Mediterranean cruises (all-inclusive packages starting at $1,500)
- Mexico (locally mined and crafted silver jewelry starting at $5)
- The Bahamas (all-inclusive resorts for savings on food and lodging; high-quality cigars made by Cuban immigrants: $20 each)
