Travel Guru Lonely Planet has released its “Best in Travel 2015” guide, and if you are looking for a great value destination for your next overseas adventure, you should be heading to one of these fabulous countries:
Exotic and economic, Tunisia is the perfect 2015 holiday destination for those who want a taste of Africa, without flying too far from home.
With a current exchange rate of approximately 17.5 South African Rand to the Pound, South Africa offers exceptional value for money, and if you dream of going on a South African Safari, the timing couldn’t be better (or cheaper!).
Cool, cosmopolitan and kind on the pocket, Shanghai is a great destination for those who want to visit China in 2015.
It may be remote, but Samoa is one of the few unspoilt and undeveloped paradises left in the world. Surprisingly, Samoa caters for budget travellers, so if you are on a round the world trip, make sure you add this tropical island to your 2015 adventure.
A backpackers favourite, Bali has always been affordable, but you don’t have to stay in a dorm to save a buck, quality hotels and resorts are much cheaper here than many other places in Asia, so why not treat yourself to a bit of luxury!
If you fancy exploring South America in 2015, but are worried about the costs in Brazil, spend a week or two in Uruguay – the food is exceptional, the people are warm and friendly, and your dinero will go a lot further here than it will next door.
Portugal has always been a great value holiday destination, but it always seems to be overshadowed by Spain. Your Euros will go a long way in Portugal next year, so why not sun yourself on the beautiful Algarve.
Significantly cheaper than Hong Kong and Tokyo, Taiwan is a great 2015 travel destination for those who are looking for a taste of the orient.
When the Euro arrived in Eastern Europe the prices increased significantly, but Romania is still a great value destination with hotels to suit every budget, great food and spectacular scenery.
Who would have thought that this little gem would make it onto Lonely Planet’s list! West Africa is not the most desirable holiday destination right now, so it could definitely do with our support in 2015!
