Given the way gadgets are priced these days, one can't buy a lot of high-tech devices in a Rs. 1 lakh budget. But, the same amount can be used to plan plenty of trips, the memories of which would stay with you forever. If exotic, international travel destinations get you even a bit excited, we've got your back. Here are top 5 of them.
Treat yourself with a luxury trip in the super-happening UAE. Witness the skyrocketing Burj Khalifa, experience the spellbinding beauty of Palm Islands, and walk in the humongous Dubai Mall. Also do not miss out on the amazing adventure sports, right from desert safari to sand-boarding. Airfare for a round trip to Dubai is around Rs. 20,000.
From the beautiful churches to mesmerizing museums, the amazing culture to the unending nightlife, Mother Russia is literally short of nothing. The cities of Moscow and St. Petersburg are not to be missed. Round trip flight tickets will cost you somewhere around Rs. 40,000, and the stay is a little costlier but still manageable. Bonus point: Booze is ridiculously cheap in Russia!
Egypt makes for an unorthodox, but fulfilling and cheap travel getaway in under Rs. 1,00,000. When in Egypt, visit the Giza Pyramid complex, The Great Sphynx, the breathtaking museums, and the ancient temples. Also, take camel rides, and try your hands at adventure sports in the Egyptian deserts. Round trip flight fare would cost you somewhere between Rs. 40,000 and 50,000.
The best of beaches and the best of citylife- that's how the twin nations of Malaysia and Singapore can be aptly described. When in Singapore, visit the Universal Studios, try Night Safari, and ride in the huge Singapore Flyer. In Malaysia, witness the Petronas towers, Batu caves, and the many beautiful beaches. Round trip flight tickets to Malaysia will cost you around Rs. 30,000.
Given the natural beauty of the neighboring countries of Vietnam and Cambodia, we'd say they're massively underrated travel destinations. When in Cambodia, visit the world-famous, sprawling temple complex of Angkor Wat, the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh, and the National Museum. In Vietnam, enjoy the natural beauty and savor the lip-smacking cuisine. Round trip flight charges to Cambodia are around Rs. 50,000.
