Many people get hung up on the cost of a flight or hotel but fail to see the bigger picture. For example, flights to Asia look expensive, but once there, five-star hotels can be surprisingly affordable. Europe is often the reverse, with cheaper flights and expensive, cramped hotels. When figuring out where you want to go, its important to look at the whole picture instead of succumbing to sticker shock and ignoring potential savings. Sure, getting to Malaysia is expensive, but you'll end up paying pennies for some of the best food on Earth. Things have a way of evening out.
