Rahul Singh, co-founder of Ithaka Travel and an avid traveler himself, lists a few vacation destinations for a perfect last minute budget holiday:
Sri Lanka - Nearest island to go to for a fun filled short vacation. The beauty of this place is that, Sri Lanka does not offer options of a limited kind. You can lay by the beach and relax, get wild in the casinos of the city, book adventurous activities and take a walk/ride on a safari. There are options in different arenas to explore. You can pick your choice depending on the kind of traveler you are.
Bhutan - Bhutan is a culturally rich country with monasteries and magic along with being the great Himalayan kingdom. You can plan your trip to Bhutan in 2 days and get going on a trip filled with adventure.
Nepal - This country might be small but there is still a plethora of options and places to visit. You can easily get detached from your daily routine and experience the serenity of the country for the time you are there. From temples to beauty spots, there is no dearth of activities waiting for you there.
Thailand - It’s not possible to cover the entire country in one holiday especially not when you have only 3-4 days. But you can definitely get a chance to explore some parts of it even on a small vacation. You can choose to visit either the city to experience the bustling culture or chill by the beach or go for experiential activities like scuba diving at some island.
Cambodia - It has one of the greatest historic sites with famed temples which is also a symbol of the country. A perfect place with a blend of history, culture and religion. The country also has good markets which you can visit while enjoying the delicacies of the place.
