    Aussies cashed up. Where to travel/holiday and why?

    The Australian dollar has been doing really well for about the last 12 months.This makes for cheap travel/holiday overseas for Aussies. Tell me where should I go and why?

    Isles de Mujeres which is an island 20 mins from Cancun Mexico.  Cancun is like Vegas and Isles de Mujeres is island that has beautiful beaches, cheap cocktails, and more Mexican culture and food.  You can also take a day trip to Chitzen Itza (Mayan pyramid ruins) and to Isle de Contoy (bird sanctuary) from here.

    ah Australia one of the places on my travelling list. I think you should check out Tavira which is in the Algarve in South Portugal it is 30km away from Faro and about 120km from the Spanish border so if you get bored of Portugal you could go and take a look at Spain, its a open border so you will have no problem in entering Spain. But Tavira will offer you a range of activity's to do, lots of different beautiful scenery's, 18th century buildings and churches dating back to the 16th century, many different structures like bridges and castles can be found here, most of which were built by the Moors and Romans, this little city has lots of history dating back to before the Romans. If all this is not for you than go hit the bars and clubs, in 2000 the Algarve got named the new Ibiza, so if you like clubbing and bars you are in luck.

    In the recent years Tavira has become very popular with tourist, due to the high class golf courses, clubs scartared across the Algarve, but Portugal have made sure to keep the history that built there beautiful country visible to the public.

    If you want more info on Tavira, i have made a hub about this place maybe you can have a look at some of the pictures there.

    I suggest travelling to California.  First the exchange rate between the countries is beneficial to Australia, and second in California we have every type of vacation you could want, wineries, mountains, beautiful seashores, historical sites, museums that can be found in even the smaller cities, great scenery, amusement parks and lots more and as I live here I know it is a great place - as is Australia.

    Definitely Asia! Even before this, Asia has always been cheap to travel to.....And there are budget airlines like AirAsia and Jetstar that fly to hubs like Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Singapore.

    Thanks  guys for your suggestions. They all sound very tempting..I am keen to get to non touristy places  that are hard to get to -y like finding a jewel. That of course is followed by a recovery period in places where the food is good, the air clean and the living easy!
    And of course I like it cheap!
