Need cost effective March 2014 trip ideas

Two mid 60's travelers from Vancouver would like a March journey to absorb warmth and culture. Any or all suggestions would be welcome-- it's a big world out there. Hint...we've exhausted the States, Mexico, Canada and the Mediterranean. Have even been to Beijing, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Nepal. Time we have for travel is 3 weeks in March. Have been doing research each and every night, but now getting bogged down. help!!

It is a big world with various prices. Are you looking to stay in one place or move around? AI, 5 star, hostels, b&b, apt - costs? Perhaps a ta might be in order.

We're looking for a couple of weeks of culture and 1 week of relaxation. AI not needed, but COMFORT is a necessity. Traveling in a group is new to us but we'd be up for that especially if group members are of similar ages. On our bucket list is Australia's east coast, but have yet to find a trip itinerary that accommodates our $7,000 budget. Thanks for your assistance. And yes, a The Right Travel Agent could be of help, just walking into an agent's office doesn't guarantee you've got the right one for you.

Hi,

What about Bali, away from the tourist enclave in the south? Lots of culture there. You could go to Ubud (I am just back from my 12th trip). It is a lot less expensive than Australia (where I live). Have a look also at a rambutan Boutique Hotel at Lovina Beach. We had 5 days there for a place to wind down, but woke up the first morning and found ourselves already wound down. You could also go to Java to see Yogyakarta and from there Borobudur and Prambanan.
