Thailand, Vietnam, and Bali! You could probably spend 2 months there on 5k!

We were able to do Ireland on a little less than that amount πŸ™‚ $1600 for flights, $1200 for rooms (including breakfast), $800 for car and gas, the rest was for excursions, food, and souvenirs. πŸ™‚ I think we spent closer to $4200 in all. We planned everything ourselves, used booking.com for room and board, and stayed for 11 days (10 nights). πŸ™‚

(Btw that’s in american dollars after the conversion rate.)

You could do pretty much any country in Western Europe, Ireland too, for that amount, for a 5 – 7 day trip. The only exception could be England with that pesky pound conversion rate. πŸ™‚ 

Anywhere around Asia (Bali, Thailand, etc) you won’t be able to do for 5K.

@mamadingdong:  oh for some reason I forgot about the flights, duh. But you could spend $3000-3500 on flights and the other $2000 goes a long way there! I think I spent under $1000 for a whole month.

We did London, Paris and Rome for right around $6000 (including flights), so for $5000, you could totally do Paris and a city in Italy- or choose a country.

I’d go diving in Australia / SE Asia!  ‘Cause $5000 wouldn’t be enough for my African safari dream trip.  πŸ™‚

I’d go to the Galapagos Islands. Orrrrrr….Vietnam (if you can get a good deal on flights. Or use air miles). New Zealand would also be on the list. It’d be tight but doable if you got good flights.
