  1. We are just on the threshold of 2018 and the year awaits with possibilities. These are all some great destinations that we would love to get to in 2018. The one that we would especially love to go to is Cambodia to visit the Angkor Wat temple.

  2. Out of all these, I think Malaysia, Thailand are really the ones where you can make a budget for 25,000 INR for all inclusive trip. Other locations may be costlier is what I feel since hotels may be expensive or getting there in a flight may be expensive.

  3. Great recommendations. And I am excited that two of these destinations are on my list for 2018. I will see if I can cover more. Most of the beach destinations you covered are pretty exotic in very less budget which is wonderful.

  4. I totally would love to go to Taiwan just for its delicious street food. And I do agree with going to Malaysia for 2018 – but not sure about shopping for antiques in Bukit Bintang…. it’s more restaurants, bars, and shopping, but not for antiques. But Malaysia is totally a great country with so much to do and best thing is that it is affordable.

  5. So, we have already booked Thailand for early next year and then Vietnam is calling us for some professional commitments. Thanks for this list, makes me happy as a Budget traveller.

  6. I am surprised to see Bali on cheap destinations 😆😆 that said batam island is not in SG. It belongs to Indonesia. People live on Batam island and work in Sg.

  7. Wait – I thought the Maldives was considered an expensive location? But then again, I guess it would more expensive coming all the way from Canada. I’m glad Taiwan made it on the list, as I’ll be going there and I can’t wait to try delicious street food, and explore its night markets. it’s great to know I won’t go broke while here

  8. Great recommendations of budget destinations specially from Far-East for year 2018. I have been to Thailand and it was lovely. Would love to visit South Korea as I have many Korean friends, and they also recommend me to go for South Korea.

  9. I have several items on this list that I have been planning to travel to. Vietnam, Maldives and Bali! I have yet to travel to these destinations but I am really excited to start planning on my next year’s travels!

  10. I never knew Bali & Maldives are budget destinations. I wanted to see Bali this year, but even from India it was costing me a lot as compared to the other Asian destinations. Will look again for Bali on your recommendation!!

  11. It looks like Asia is the place to visit next year! The country I have yet to visit from these destinations is the Maldives. You made me want to visit Malaysia again too!

  12. I’m not so sure that I agree with you on several of these places being budget locations to visit, such as the Maldives, Singapore and Hong Kong but it is a really nice list of Asian places to visit. We’ve been wanting to get to Vietnam sometime soon. Your photo of it looks so beautiful and peaceful, where is the location?

  13. Awesome list! Asia is by far our favorite continent to travel too. We’ve taken our 6 year old to Thailand, Japan and Taiwan in the last year and loved it! Singapore is super high on my list and now you are really making me want to go by mentioning the island! I hope to make it to some other Asian countries really soon!

  14. Lucky you can call the Maldives a budget destination! From Europe, it’s definitely not cheap! I’ve never heard of Batam Island in Singapore, so that really caught my eye, as did Taiwan, I’d love to visit.
