Plus, this beautiful region is also pretty flexible when it comes to your budget.

You can stay at inexpensive hostels, hit up the local food markets and sip on Asia's infamously cheap beer to stretch your dollars.

Or you can ball out at top-notch hotels with five-star accommodations for a fraction of what you'd normally pay in Europe or the United States.

However, I should probably warn you: Once you step off the plane, you'll never want to go back home.
