My recommendation is to go to Turkey now. Their Turkey Lira depreciates very deep so their foods etc must be super cheap and holiday like a king there

oh I like historical and cultural places. like in Japan I only enjoy Kyoto than other places. why Bali? coz one stop living place. everything is near and accessible there. want beach. mountain, historical, cultural, farm, adventure, water sport, diving, malls everything got. why turkey? everything is cheap there and many historical places I can learn. the view also very good. go pamukkale hot spring, bosporus view. not just stones. stones I only go selcuk

Traveling around MY is fine as it's cheap. But what about going to US or UK or Japan and other countries. Those are expensive.

So, are you willing to spend 10k (for you and your partner) to go traveling? Because that 10k is for airplane ticket, hotel lodging, traveling fees, tickets and food only. That means 10k just gone like that.

For some people it is worth it but for some you get nothing (tangible) in the end.

NZ so far is the most i've spent.. RM25k 2 pax for 15 days trip..
It's even more expensive when compared to my EU trip to 3 different countries.

And it's worth it. what you experience can never be bought with that RM10k or RM20k. What's money's worth to you in the end?

Holiday highly dependable on your financial capability. I remember n-years ago, hearing ppl go Japan is like a big deal as most of the time heard it cost RM7-8K (no budget airline era). And London Bridge is just a song to sing.. dream also cannot reach there. Hahaha..

Due to that .. n-years back we went to Phuket almost every year (cheap and no pinch my pocket). Until Japan tsunami where their currency badly hit. Daringly bring my 4yr old and hubby go there spend RM7K for 4days trip .. can't believe that was my katak bawah tempurung first time to Japan. But do realize save more from small nearby travel..then go for a big expensive trip worth it.

Then on.. we went Japan like every 2-3 years once.. already been there 4x. Last trip (2 years ago) spent RM45K (3ppl) DIY 15days Tokyo-Hokkaido-Osaka. Then also spent RM22K on 10days UK trip (2ppl). It become annual travel.. badan itchy if stay put too long. So this year very kesian.. cuti-cuti Malaysia not enough to settle my urge as I prefer cold weather places. We by right have a trip last June to Perth but Covid got it defer.

For DIY, mine is on the pricier side. As we don't stay AirBnB and my son needs a bed himself even when he was small child. Now even more pricey.. as he become teenager.. eat alot!

If I go on vacations, I'm willing to spend. Rent car, stay in 4-5 star hotels, go for 2-3weeks, without any planning. wake up every morning only decide where do or drive to another town. Book last min hotel because i don't know where i will end up. If im going to cheap out then I rather don't go. stay in malaysia.
That's just me la. Im not the smartest person here, that's why im stupid with my money.

This is not necessarily true, most of the touristy places including hotels are priced in euros. And even though the lira is tanking, inflation is driving prices up. It's still a nice place to visit though.

I was, or perhaps still, the same. It's the whole experience, something you can't really factor in rationally with money. I can't fathom how people willing to fly to foreign lands but skimp on food, surviving on maggi or biscuits... but I guess to each his/her own.
