Top 6 Least Expensive Tourist Destinations in 2014

Page 1 of 6

What are the least expensive tourist destinations in 2014? You don’t have to break the bank to have a nice getaway. Dutch researchers did a research study on the effects of vacations on happiness. They had very surprising results. The largest increase in happiness doesn’t come from the vacation itself. Actually, the planning and anticipation of a vacation make people the happiest for a duration of 8 weeks. After the vacation is over, their overall happiness levels drops to the baseline and the drop is pretty sharp. After the vacation is over, the people who went to the vacation weren’t happier than the people who haven’t been on a vacation.

Least Expensive Tourist Destinations

There is another interesting finding. The researchers also measured the relationship between the length of the vacation and overall happiness. Contrary to common sense they didn’t find any positive relationship. So, it really doesn’t matter whether you had a 3-day vacation, or a 7 day vacation or a 28-day vacation. Since most of the happiness boost comes from planning and anticipating the vacation, it may make more sense to have 2-3 short vacations throughout the year instead of one long vacation. So, instead of spending a bundle on an expensive vacation you can try to find affordable tourist destinations so that you have enough money left for another vacation in a few months.
