If you are looking for African vacation tour destinations then you should really start thinking about West Africa tour holidays. While large parts of this continent are desert, it is impossible to take away from the fascinating touring attractions the various countries here have to offer.

If you want a holiday in a place where the modern world has reached, but not tainted, Bali is one of the last options open to you in the world!
Bali does a thriving trade in tourism, but mostly the island is an untouched wilderness, where locals still speak their own language, and if you’ve chosen a more secluded villa in Bali, all you’ll be able to hear after the sun goes down is the chirping of crickets and croaking of frogs.

Walking down cobbled streets in the chill of the early morning, the sunlight brings alive the colors in the colonial city walls.
A mist lies blanketing the lower slopes of the imposing Volcan de Agua that rises above Antigua to the south. Passing churches and grand plazas, you’ll suddenly find yourself staring at the crumbling remains of once-mighty buildings, gracefully collapsing between restaurants, hotels, and businesses. Words fail to describe the magic of the town.
If there’s a place in the world where you can get the greatest clothes at the cheapest price that would be — Thailand! Similar to China, Thailand offers a lot of great cuisines and a host of other things one can enjoy. Beaches are located almost everywhere.
One of the cheapest Asian country to visit is Thailand. It provides its people with an excellent value for money. With low labor costs and a weak currency, foreigners and locals can enjoy available products and services at the least and most affordable cost. Popular tourist destinations, like Phuket and Ko Samui, though will have a slightly higher price than other locales. But with a budget of 800 baht, which is about $24 USD, one may already actually have enough for three meals, a dorm, and transportation.

If you are one of those people who think vacations are a rare and far-fetched commodity, I can relate, but they don’t have to be.

Nepal is offering to give you what no other holiday spot probably ever did: inspiration.
Bosnia and Herzegovina
Soooo… Who’s down for some international adventure?
With all the news about people getting kicked off of airplanes, I sure hope that prices are affordable! There seems to be no guarantee of reaching our vacation paradise anymore, which is a shame. If I could pick one of those places, it would be Greece. I want to see all the old buildings.
