Work can be tiring to say the least. Even if you love what you do work can still make you burn out from time to time. Sometimes it’s not even about work. Sometimes the stress of family can be overbearing, paying bills and focusing on saving can be exhausting, or sometimes there’s just no precise cause of stress. All of life’s beautiful and overwhelming aspects can cause even a little bit of stress which is why we all need a vacation every once in a while.
The problem with traveling is that, unless you’re a millionaire, most of us can’t travel as often as we want to since traveling just about anywhere across the country can rack up quite a chunk of change. This day and age it can seem nearly impossible to take even a decent vacation without obliterating your bank account. While it may seem impossible to get a dream vacation at an affordable rate there actually plenty of awesome vacation destinations that are well within your price range. Here are some of the best affordable vacation getaway destinations.
Bali is known for its incredible scenery as the beaches are untouched and are surrounded by flourishing jungle. While Bali’s breathtaking beauty may make it seem like only a dream Bali is actually much closer to reality than you might think. Getting to Bali might be the priciest part of the trip, but once you’re there you won’t need to stretch your pocket too wide to enjoy yourself. Some of the more highly rated hotels in Bali run for as low as $50 a night, and you can even get some daily meals for $3.
What else is there to do in Bali? Balangan Beach is known around the world as one of the most sought after surfing destinations with some of the best waves and crystal-clear waters. In the jungle travelers can seek hiking and exploration that will keep even the most experienced hikers and mountain climbers busy for hours. Beyond the jungle are towering cliffs that offer the greatest views of the island and the surrounding ocean. The high-quality amenities for the low-quality cost in Bali are hard to beat.
Usually when potential travelers think of affordable vacation spots Greece is one of the last places to come to mind. While Greece is often associated with being a little pricy the small town of Corfu is actually quite affordable. Some of the hotels in this small town have rates as low as $100 a night. If you want to save even more money you could stay in some of the hostels in Corfu. Both options would offer a view of the ocean that is truly priceless.
The town would allow a place to stay while you tour some of the more well-known sites of Greece like the Olympic Temples. While some of the more elegant spots in Greece may be a little out of the way the town of Corfu has many small shops and street sites to visit if you just wanted to stay in town for your trip.
