Visitor’s Guide To North Korea Published PDF Print E-mail

A French travel guru just issued info on how to enjoy a trip to one of the most dangerous destinations in the world. Your travel4seniors.com editor can attest to the reputation from experiences in the early 1950s as a member of a reactivated U.S. Navy Carrier Air Group during the Korean War.

They lethally hated Americans then and still do, as tragically proved recently when they imprisoned and tortured young student Otto Warmbier to death.

USA Today and GOBankingRates named 20 travel destinations you can visit for less than $100 daily. Others listed include Singapore, Madrid, Lisbon, Prague, Cancun, and Bali was the cheapest at $24. Las Vegas was #19 on the cheapo list.

The beancounters obviously haven’t been to Sin City lately. And why didn’t they include the expenses of getting there plus additional in-town costs? Round trip U.S. flights range from a cheap $200 and much higher. Also, the famed Vegas buffets now average $35 for breakfast or lunch, and $50 for dinner. Some bait ads quote hotel room rates at $99.99 per night. Then, all add the infamous daily resort fee, usually another $20 and more.

Show tickets are at least another $25 plus booze, food and tips. Finally, of course, there are the greedy Vegas casino bosses. Unless you spend your entire visit at local museums and sightseeing, expect to lose a modest average of $100 day playing the tables and/or slots. Of course, it’s possible you’ll win, but the odds always heavily favor Vegas.
