Diamond Resorts International® Timeshare -- Affordable Luxury Holidays

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - July 28, 2016) - An affordable luxury holiday should be available for all. Those who are willing to scope out last-minute deals on airfare or travel to desired destinations in the off-season can score outrageous deals and travel all over the world for much lower costs. Guests of Diamond Resorts International® timeshare have 35 countries to choose from when scheduling a dream getaway, but there are some tried-and-true destinations that provide year-round affordability with all-out glam.

Africa regularly appears on travel bucket lists for its vast areas of unspoiled wilderness that allows for sensational safaris and adventurous activities on the cheap. This is a nature lover's paradise, where even the pampering takes place in direct contact with the outdoors. Top destinations include Botswana, South Africa, where up to 70 percent of its territory belongs to the Kalahari Desert, making for spectacular wildlife viewing. For those who prefer beaches to the safari experience, Zanzibar, an archipelago belonging to Tanzania, offers pristine sand combined with azure blue water. On the mainland, Tanzania is home to one of the most majestic mountains in the world, Mount Kilimanjaro. This dormant volcano is an attraction just for the sight, but some visitors opt for a more rugged experience of hiking its 19,340 feet, which takes about six days.

Eurozone travelers have plentiful options in Portugal, where beaches and dramatic cliffs are part and parcel of some of its scenery. It also boasts a wine country that sometimes makes people think they're actually in Italy. However, its down-to-earth prices for high-end seafood delicacies and spa packages will make some wonder why it took so long to discover the country's sunny magic. Lisbon is a big city with a rich history, and its many sites are inexpensive for the value. For starters, visitors can see the world's most expensive chapel, the Chapel of St. John the Baptist with its ornate golden baroque magnificence.

Heading to Southeast Asia will allow travelers to splurge on affordable fine dining, spa treatments, and guided adventure tours. Cambodia is one country that is consistently rated among the best-priced countries to visit for affordable luxury. Angkor is considered a must-see, with its temple complex that is one of the most sought after archeological sites in the world. Phnom Penh offers upscale shopping, and the majestic Royal Palace, where a giant Baccarat Buddha sits on display. For those who want to soak up the sun and get away from city life, there's the remote Rabbit Island, a tropical island near the town of Kep, with nothing to do but escape into blissful relaxation.

Whether visitors prefer a busy action-packed holiday, or one that lets them unwind with a pleasant, sensory experience and restorative pampering, Diamond Resorts International® timeshare can provide a place to rest in affordable luxury in locations all over the world.
