Travel hotspots on sale

Where to go, for cheap.



From the Dec/Jan 2010 issue of the magazine.


Everything seems to be getting more expensive these days, but if you go to the right cities, travel isn’t. The rise of the Canadian dollar—coupled with the weakness of some foreign currencies—means that our cash goes much farther than it did a decade ago in many places.

Even after taking inflation into account, a week in a four-star hotel and the rental of a full-sized car in Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic, costs you 61% less today than it would have back in 1999. Today you can buy an 18-day vacation in Santo Domingo for the same price a seven-day trip cost 10 years ago (not counting food and airfare).

Sound good? Here’s a roundup of global tourist hotspots that will make you feel a whole lot richer than you used to.
