Traveling “on a budget” can mean many different things. Whatever it means to you won’t be the same as what it means to the person next to you. However, these Budget Travel Deals articles are created to bring you a variety of current deals for $1000 or less, per person. You decide which deal is worth it.
Below are two offers featured on Budget Travel that are worth mentioning. You may choose between a trip to relax at the beach in Miami and later hop on a cruise to the Bahamas; or if you are interested in something more foreign, fly halfway across the globe to Beijing, China. Here are the highlights for both deals:
1) Miami & Bahamas Cruise from $460
This deal includes interior cabin accommodations on the Norwegian Sky cruise to Grand Bahama Island, Nassau and Great Stirrup Cay; plus, three nights at Miami Beach’s Deauville Beach Resort, before or after the cruise. It starts at $460 per person (plus, $119 in taxes), although prices vary slightly depending on the date you choose; also, you may upgrade to an ocean-view room for $39 extra.
Note: if traveling from LAX, you may find non-stop, roundtrip airfares starting at around $340 right now ( best current price found at American Airlines). A price like this one will still keep this whole trip under $1000.
2) Beijing, China for $888
This package includes airfare from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and six nights at the Traders Hotel Beijing; in addition, you get three days of sightseeing with guided tours of the Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven, among others. This price also includes all air and hotel taxes and fees. Available dates from Nov. 2013 to April 2014.
Regardless of which one is your preference, it will be a great deal and you will have a fantastic time. These are only made better with a good friend or partner to join you. Now, off you go to bask in the sun or visit the Great Wall.
