Malaysia Among Top 10 Affordable Destinations

Malaysia is among the top 10 most affordable destinations in the world where Europeans can go a long way with their Euros for a memorable holiday, according to the German-language Yahoo! Travel Magazine.

It listed Malaysia along with Thailand, India, Sri Lanka, Mexico, Croatia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Egypt and Hungary.

Malaysia's Langkawi island was praised for its long, white sandy beaches, palm trees and fascinating coral reefs.

Nature lovers too get "full worth" for their money with the abundance of flora and fauna.

"Your holiday budget is spared: life here is exceptionally affordable!" said the Yahoo! site.

Thailand was cited for its exquisite cities, rich culture and pristine beaches making it a dream holiday destination for many, from backpackers to island tourists.

Thailand's popularity is also due to the fact that it is a traditionally affordable destination and airfares have declined dramatically to around 300 Euros from Germany for some lucky travellers.

"The Euro is very strong compared with the Thai baht, which makes it attractive for people from the Euro zone to travel to Thailand where they get a long stretch with the Euro," said Thomas Wischnewski, an Asian specialist travel and tour operator.
