第 Ⅰ 卷
Signs of a global economic recovery are glimmering, but are they enough to account for taking a major vacation? Well, the world is always bigger than our wallets. One of the simplest options is to find a place that has a lot to offer but hasn’t yet been hit by the price inflation that comes with mass popularity. To help travelers in search of value, we’ve assembled, with the help of professionals from USA Today, CNN and Lonely Planet, a list of destinations that are worth going to while they’re still cheap.
Its name translates as “land on the edge”, and this year Ukraine may be on the edge of discovery for budget travelers in search of rich history. Visitors can enjoy its cultural wealth, the warmth of its people, and the fact that their daily spending is below $50 (307 yuan).
The country’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites are cooperating with locals to offer special deals, such as a traditional meal for just a few dollars. It’s the kind of travel experience you will recall once the moment has passed, so now is the time to build those memories.
South Korea is a visitor-friendly country. Not only can budget travelers find the basics —from hotel rooms to great meals — at reasonable prices, but the country also has a ton of free parks, discounts and other services, especially for visitors. For instance, until August 25, a free shuttle bus transports foreign visitors between the capital city of Seoul and Jeonju, a popular tourist destination. A free phone service offers tourists multilingual assistance 24 hours a day.
Turkey is on the rise, so to get the best of the new at the price of the old, go now. In the last decade, the country’s tourism facilities has grown by 67 percent, according to USA Today, and more recently it has emerged as a global airline hub. This country of ancient ruins, historic towns and beckoning beaches is a destination to watch this summer.
Popular resort areas in Egypt, like Sharm El Sherk, are as relaxing as they ever were — and also less stressful for your wallet. “The overall sentiment is that resort areas like Sharm El Sheik are very safe,” said Tony Cardoza, president of a US travel agency, in an interview with CNN. “But most vacationers appear to prefer traveling to places that haven’t seen as much civil unrest.” That preference has made Egypt a buyer’s market. Low demand also has another benefit: smaller crowds. “Clients going now have been able to get pictures of themselves in front of the pyramids with no other tourists blocking the view,” Cardoza said.
