However, there are many desirable destinations that can be incredibly affordable — with a little careful planning.

Uncover the wonders of China’s Silk Road in Xi’an at its eastern end. The UNESCO World Heritage site is famous for its 8,000 terra-cotta warriors and 10,000 bronze weapons, but that’s not all there is to this exotic destination.
