7 more exotic destinations you can visit for the price of a weekend in Las Vegas

One of the most popular presentations I’ve ever given has been about seven exotic locations you can visit for the price of a Vegas weekend. Since I last spoke on the topic, travelers have been eager to know if I’ve added any more destinations to my list, and where they can go in 2013 to turn their ordinary trip into an extraordinary vacation.

So when I was asked to speak at the 2013 Philadelphia Inquirer Travel Show, I knew this was a topic I wanted to revisit. I spoke for a little over 15 minutes this year, covering seven more exotic destinations to visit for the price of a Vegas weekend. We caught the speech on film for everyone who couldn’t make it, so just hit play to listen in.

After watching my speech, do you plan on visiting any of the destinations I mentioned? I’d love to hear about your travel plans in a comment below.

    Loved it! Thankyou for your presentation.Gave me some great ideas!

  2. Helen Brown

    I am very interested in going to China. One of your travelers told me about Friendly Planet Travel and she also sent me this flyer. Her name was Janice M. Riske who lived in Chehalis, Washington at the time.

  3. Karen

    Thank you for the wonderful suggestions on locations we can visit for less than $2k. But where do we find these type of deals to get a cost this low?

  4. Debbie Phillips

    We plan to travel this year to Africa. What’s the best time of year to go and see the migration of animals and most of all the big 5. Elephants are our favorite but not exclusively.

  5. Hi Helen, Thanks for your message. We will be delighted to help you plan the right trip to China for you. We’ve got a lot going on in China, from a taste of the three cities of Beijing, Xi’an and Shanghai to a program with a Yangtze River cruise. If you give us a call, we’ll be happy to review the options and help you decide which tour to book. Whatever you decide, I can personally attest to the incredible experience you’ll have in China. It’s truly among the BEST destinations I’ve ever visited, and I can’t wait to go back and see more. – Peggy G.

  6. Hi Debbie, If going to Kenya, the very best time to witness the great migrations ranges from June through September. However, chances are excellent you’ll see the Big 5 whenever you go, although the migrations are specific to a time of year. Peggy G.

  7. Hi Karen, These deals are all found on our website, at Log on, then use the search function to find deals for under $2000. It’ll literally pull up deals throughout the world that are under that price point. If you need help, why don’t you give us a call, and one of our Reservations team members will gladly help you search. 800-555-5765. Peggy G.
