"History and architecture buffs will fall in love with the city of Antigua with its cobblestoned streets, Spanish Baroque influences, and colonial churches," says Travelocity Senior Editor Courtney Scott. The city itself is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

"Enjoy roaming the open-air markets for artisan products and local delicacies, and hop on a shuttle to head to Guatemala City or Monterrico Beach," says Scott.

"If you want to do European beaches, consider Croatia," says Danielle Contray, deputy digital editor for Budget Travel. "The island of Hvar sits in the Adriatic and has miles of beaches plus medieval architecture and great nightlife." Not to mention, she says, that you'll be able to find hotels under $100.

The best time to visit the island of Hvar is apparently at the end of summer, when the European vacationers leave.
"Shuttle boats leave from the main harbor every day and whisk you off to a different Paklinski island each day," says Scott. "Or rent a private boat and spend a day on the Adriatic Sea, where you'll discover private coves, gorgeous rock formations, and beautiful beach clubs like Carpe Diem."

Slow down and smell the flowers, because Hvar is also known for its lavender. "I recommend renting a car one day and driving inland to explore the lavender fields and villages," says Scott.

Certain Southeast Asian countries are affordable travel destinations because the low cost of living makes lodgings and food affordable. One place to check out is Cambodia.

"Make sure to visit the Unesco World Heritage site of Angkor Wat at sunrise," says Travelocity's Scott. The three-day admission fee is $40.

She recommends Price DAngkor Hotel & Spa, which has prices as low as $100 or less per night. It's also ideally placed for the tourists who want to visit Angkor Wat and the markets and restaurants of Siem Reap. The hotel was voted 2011 Leading Hotel in Cambodia by the World Travel Awards.

"Everyone knows about Angkor Wat — and you should go," says Lonely Planet US Travel Editor Robert Reid. "But Battambang is a nice add-on, with art deco French colonial buildings, including an art deco mansion turned into a boutique hotel, for under $100."


8. Floating Village, Cambodia (Image Source: Thinkstock)

"Take a river cruise on the Mekong to see the floating village of Chong Khneas," says Scott.

"Dollar always works wonders in Southeast Asia. Jungle lodges like the 4 Rivers Lodgeat Koh Kong, near Thai border, only recently opened. Floating rooms come with kayaks run about $259 per couple. You're out there and mostly alone," says Reid.


10. Caribbean Cruise (Image Source: Flickr user Christian Lambert Photography)

Scott estimates that on average, customers can save at least $1,000 by opting for a cruise instead of a land vacation. "Meals and entertainment are typically included, and many deals include cash-back incentives to spend on extra goodies like spa treatments."

Scott recommends the seven-night Eastern Caribbean Cruise on Holland America's new ship, the ms Nieuw Amsterdam ($599 per person for an ocean-view room). Ports of call include Puerto Rico, the Bahamas, and more.
