Budget Travel Destinations for 2014

Published Date Author: , December 1st, 2013

Toronto SkylineShermans Travel Blog has compiled a list of their top ten affordable travel destinations for next year. Among them:

1. SingaporeSingapore It’s telling that Singapore Airlines spent the better part of this fall introducing over two dozen brand new 777-300ER planes into its fleet. The national carrier, consistently recognized as one of the top airlines in the world, is simply catering to demand as more and more visitors flock to this verdant Southeast Asian hub.

Scores of new hotels are opening all over the city – many of them artfully designed and, best of all, reasonably priced. But it’s not just affordable lodging that keep travelers coming back. The city’s treasure trove of cheap hawker centers (food stalls), diverse ethnic neighborhoods, and abundant green spaces (Gardens by the Bay, for one) show why it’s becoming one of the region’s most accessible, yet endlessly entertaining modern metropolises.

2. Toronto Toronto Porter Airlines’ frequent $86, one-way fares to Toronto make it an easy choice for domestic travelers – especially those in the Northeast – who are considering a trip northward for scenery, nightlife, and great food. Toronto fits the bill perfectly, with a little bit of something for everyone: culture hounds can catch an evening show by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra (tickets from $33) at gorgeous Roy Thomson Hall; urban explorers can venture into Chinatown (simply ride TTC to St Patrick station); and aspiring chefs and foodies can shop for pierogies, fresh bison, or souvlaki at the historic two-level St Lawrence Market.

Plus, the newly-opened Ripley’s Aquarium (tickets from $29.98), the country’s largest, offers a fantastic option for families that’s right in the heart of Downtown. Note that Porter flies into tiny Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, which then requires a short ferry ride into the city center.
