Our mates over at Nileguide.com have posted a story on the Top 5 Destinations to visit during a recession.
They've listed the following as the Top 5 - full blog post here
Get a taste of Europe for a fraction of the cost in cosmopolitan Buenos Aires,
trek through the expansive landscapes of Patagonia, and sip Malbec in
the vineyards of Mendoza. With the roughly 3:1 Peso - US Dollar
exchange rate, it’s easy to live large in Argentina.
2. New Zealand
Learn the history of Maori culture,
catch a glimpse of the elusive kiwi bird, and participate in one of
hundreds of outdoor activities (from biking to surfing to zorbing). Live it up in Auckland with a 2:1 NZ Dollar - US Dollar exchange rate.
Experience the bright colors, flavors and fragrances of the Istanbul Spice Bazaar, admire the minarets of the Blue Mosque, and explore archaeological sites and beaches on the Aegean coast at 1.6 New Turkish Liras to the US Dollar.
4. South Africa
Take in breathtaking views of Capetown from the famous Table Mountain,
sample award-winning Reisling and Cabernet Sauvignon in the Cape
Winelands, and enjoy fresh seafood from both the Indian and Atlantic on
10 Rands to the US Dollar.
Party enthusiasts can check off Carnival
in the streets of Rio de Janeiro
from their must-do lists. Dance the Samba or soak up the sun on one of
the beaches of Brazil’s 4,000+ mile coastline. Nothing beats the price
of an all-you-can-eat Brazilian barbecue at 2+ Reais to the US Dollar.
I'd love to add one more to this list
Cambodia - Very, very inexpensive to travel and surprisingly safe given the turmoil this country has gone through. Enjoy the temples of Angkor, bizzare culinary delights and bask in the warmth of an amazingly warm culture.
Where else would you travel to in such tumultuous times?
