What do you think? I've been to a few of those and most is right on, though I disagree with Poland. I paid over $100/night for a hotel in Krakow this past January. No one in their right mind goes to Krakow in January, because the weather is beyond brutally cold, so the hotels are heavily discounted. I can only imagine what the prices are in peak tourist season! Granted, if you travel outside of Krakow, you can have a cheap vacation but most tourists only go there or Warsaw.

I agree with all of the SE Asia destinations. I'm surprised Vietnam didn't make the list. I notice that the guy uses beer as a price staple when comparing costs of places. Is beer really that important? I usually don't get drunk when traveling alone in a foreign country. Also, some of those coutries he lists in the middle-east are not so friendly to Americans. I would not travel to those places alone even if they were cheap.
