In winter, vacations with empty beaches and good weather with pleasant prices can become a reality. In some regions, the stronger exchange rate of the pound against the local currency reduces the cost of travel.

The Far East offers the best prices. Experts estimate that prices have fallen in about 88% of destinations since 2022, according to Yahoo.

Hanoi in Vietnam turned out to be the cheapest. Five other Far Eastern destinations also made the top ten, including Bali in Indonesia and Phuket in Thailand.

Interest from vacationers continues to grow and some tour operators offer lower prices to their customers. Experts have assessed the possibility of restoring quality recreation.

1. Rest in Thailand

There are still fewer tourists in Thailand than before the pandemic. There are several reasons for this: they had difficulty recovering from COVID-19 as the restrictions lasted longer than in most countries, affecting tourist destinations. Hotels and travel agencies are offering special deals to attract vacationers. They call Thai hotels small luxury treasures at affordable prices.

Experts advise choosing the right resort. For example, vacationing on the island of Koh Samui has become easier due to the possibility of flying via Bangkok. Some companies offer discounts on hotels in different cities of Thailand, including luxury options.

Luxtripper offers a 35% discount for 11 nights in a five-star B&B in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, and Koh Samui. Staying at Anantara resorts costs from £2799. In addition, Kenwood Travel saves up to 45% on a one-night stay at the Hyatt Regency Hua Hin, which costs from £887, including flights via Dubai.

2. Holidays in Vietnam

It's a special time in Vietnam. New visa rules and the rise of luxury travel are attracting more visitors. Although the number of tourists has not yet reached pre-pandemic levels, vacation prices have fallen by 27.9%, and the pound has risen against the Vietnamese dong.

Experts say that Vietnam has invested a lot of effort in the growth of luxury tourism, but prices remain affordable and of high quality. It's important to choose the right time to travel as some months can be rainy (from October to January). If you plan your departure properly, you will get the most out of your trip.

There are various travel offers for visiting Vietnam where you can save on domestic and international flights.

TravelLocal's 'Being Local' tour starts from £1595 excluding domestic and international flights (expect to pay over £675 roundtrip for the London to Vietnam leg). Meanwhile, Llama Travel is offering a discount of over £200 off its 12-day South to North Vietnam tour with prices starting from £1979, including international flights.

3. Tourism in Bali

Bali has regained its popularity after the pandemic thanks to the arrival of tourists from Australia and the United States. It has low airfares and vacation prices, making it a great choice for a winter vacation. In January 2024, airfares from the UK cost only £563, which is cheaper than to Thailand or Vietnam.

To make your vacation affordable and avoid the crowds, you should choose less popular places and use local accommodations and cuisine. The intriguing Beautiful Bali trip includes accommodation in local villages and visits to empty beaches. This can be done for as little as £693 for 8 nights.

Another option from Holiday Pirates is a trip from the Jungle to the Beach for a reduced price of £1649, including flights, accommodation, and some entertainment.
