Cheap Holiday Destinations for Indians

#1. Nepal:

The hill country had long been a friend of India. The land locked country is adorned with snow peaked Himalayas, pagodas and temples of prehistoric origin, thick forests with rich vegetation and White water rivers. The streets are colorful - adorned with the Buddhist flags, dusty with the roadside mud rising up to your nose and few roadside shops selling musical instruments and artistic paintings. You could spot most of the Kathmandu women being modern and stylish. The men are no less, sporting suits and turbans. The narrow streets are busy with the rickshaws cutting through the traffic, and the old fashioned Maruthi 800 as "Taxi For Hire". The "Momos" are a feast in the local food. Nightlife isn't bad. There are few casinos, line up of bars and plenty of cheaper street food to sample.

Travelling under 50,000 INR is a cake walk to these countries if you could plan your travel well in advance, say 3 to 6 months. Remember to watch out and book tickets on Promo Sales (discounted airfares). AirAsia, Spice Jet and Air India are few of the carriers to watch out for. Air Asia serves Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. Spice Jet serves Sri Lanka and Air India serves Nepal. You could include Jet Airways to Nepal if you have air miles to redeem. Also, the budget in consideration here is under the assumption that you would be willing to look out and book cheaper accommodations.
