5 last-minute vacations on a budget this March holidays

This article was originally published on the flight comparison site Skyscanner.

The term holidays are coming up from March 14 to 22 and you (and your children) deserve a vacation.

Skyscanner has put together a list of five affordable vacations that you can take ASAP this coming holiday!

1. Chiang Mai, Thailand

Chiang Mai is easily accessible from Singapore (just three hours away) and it houses some of the most impressive temples in Thailand.

Wat Chedi Luang, which was built over six centuries ago, remains one of the top attractions in Thailand. Sample traditional Thai cuisine (or even learn to cook it!) and take in the cultural sights of this city.

Craving for something a little more exciting? Try your hand at white water rafting, elephant riding or zipline across lush green forests at Zipline Chiang Mai.

2. Hong Kong, China

Looking for a vacation that you'll enjoy as much as your children? Hong Kong is perfect.

While your children may forge magical memories in Disneyland Hong Kong, you too will have ample time to shop at one of the world's best shopping cities!

All goods including luxury branded goods (except alcohol and tobacco) are tax-free in this city... so be sure to bring an open mind and a high credit limit! In between your shopping breaks, stop by one of many traditional Hong Kong Cafes and soak in the energy of this city while filling your tummy with delicious Chinese pastries and dim sum.

3. Perth, Australia

If your idea of a perfect vacation is daytime lazing by the beach and enjoying evening walks by the river or vineyard hopping, there's no better place than Perth! With a number of budget airlines flying into Perth daily, you can be sure to secure an attractive flight fare with Skyscanner!

Rent a car and check out the vineyards along Margaret River, but be sure to nominate a skipper.

In the evening, take a dip in one of Western Australia's most popular beach at Cottesloe while you dig into some delicious frozen yoghurt by the sea.

In fact, what better time to do it than now, when the Australian Dollar is at an all-time low?
