Rounding up the list of cheap international destinations is Berlin. When most people think of Europe, one of the first things that comes to their mind is the Berlin Wall. And why not? Perhaps no wall in the history of humanity has caused more suffering and separation. Berlin has since come a long way and has restored its lost prestige. It is now known for its museums, parks as well as one of the happening night-life scenes in the world. It is also famous for its lively Christmas markets that are straight out of a fairy tale. December is definitely the best time to visit since most Europeans skip town to celebrate Christmas in warmer places, leading to lower prices.
