A vacation spot in Asia

Where to Vacation with the Canadian Dollar

Although many Canadians search south of the border for vacation destinations during these long winter months, considering the value of the loonie in the United States, you may want to head to other parts of the world where our currency has more room to stretch.



Although the airline ticket may take up a good portion of your travel budget, accommodations and food costs are far cheaper than in the US, so on a daily basis you can get by on $20 or $30. Some favourite hot spots include Cambodia, Thailand and South Korea. These destinations are full of history, good food, and a fun nightlife. Also, Vietnam, Indonesia and the Philippines are great spots that allow you to travel in style on the cheap.

Eastern Europe


With beautiful landscapes, rich history and hot sandy beaches to offer, Eastern Europe is a great spot for value vacations. Bulgaria is not among the most chosen destination, yet it should not be overlooked. Croatia, Riga and Prague are known as the cost-effective alternatives to London and Stockholm. Further, Lisbon and Berlin are considered some of Europe’s best kept secrets, as most travellers are surprised by the low costs of eating, sleeping and the great nightlife too. If you are looking for some sun, Greece remains at the top of the list as Europe’s best deal.

 South America


Bolivia, bold and beautiful, is the least expensive option and offers culture, great food and access to the Amazon. Jardin in Colombia is very affordable, Guatemala and various cities in Mexico have super vacation spots for those travelling on a budget. With plenty of things going on in the cafes and bars, markets and art galleries, you won’t be spending all of your time laying on the beach.

So, if you are looking for some budget-wise locations offering fun in the sun, on the beach and in the restaurants too, try opting for something a little off the beaten path. Locations that don’t receive as many foreign visitors, tend to keep their prices low. A good value vacation is waiting for you!
