    Whats the best place to go overseas? Holiday wise.

    Ive been thinking of trying to save up enough to try and get over seas somewhere, just wondering what you all think is the best spot to go?

    There are so many awesome places to see right here in Australia ( i dont particularly like flying long distance) must have something to do with my childhood and living in all wierd and wonderful places while i was growing up.

    Fiji is beautiful if you want a "lie on the beach and go swimming" kind of holiday with a few activities thrown in. Prices are pretty good and weather will be perfect in a month or two.

    At the other end of the spectrum, Italy is amazing - incredible food, the best art in the world, loads of bars and pizzerias. Not cheap though!

    Mexico, but only the east side (Caribbean). Great scuba diving, beaches, jungle adventure, pyramids/temples, great herping and.... some of the most amazing things come out in the summer rain. We were driving along just after it rained and I was dodging what I thought were black and red crabs on the road..as I slowed down to see them properly they were tarantulas!..most amazing thing I have ever seen.

    The smarttraveller website still advises against all non-essential travel to Indonesia. There is a reason flights are so cheap atm, because there are pretty credible terrorist threats to tourist areas.

    Asia is great, Ubud Bali or Chaing Mai Thailand, both have great food and stacks of herps and everythings cheap. I would go back to Bali today if I had the chance.

    Vietnam, my parents went over there last year and cant wait to go back! They have this really awesome potent alcohol there, you only have a thimble of it and ur face starts to go numb LOL! It has a really big scorpion and a cobra in the bottle and you can refill the bottle twice with the same potency! I really want to try it! :lol: Otherwise Thailand is good too, but Vietnam was my parents favourite tho.... Got custom tailored suits made from really nice and usually expensive material for like $70 which would be well over $500 in Aus etc etc....

    China's pretty good -- the only downside though was that you can't wear white, because the pollution dirties your clothes and you have to change every few hours... Some amazing scenery though, and it's dirty cheap.

    Otherwise East coast Mexico -- superb and cheap.

    If you want cheap avoid tahiti.
    Thailand is great, has a bit of everything, shopping, beach, jungle, sunshine, good food, culture, but avoid zoo's, they are an utterly depressing experience (at least the ones we went to were)
