Luxury for Less

by Brook Wilkinson

Face it, the staycation is not for you. You want to explore the world, not your backyard. Dine on foie gras and sleep on feather beds overlooking the Rhine rather than slurping cold cereal on your couch overlooking the TV. But with the economy as it is, that spare-no-expense holiday seems pretty out-of-bounds, right? Not so. There are ways to make your Champagne dreams come off even on a beer budget. We've got the secret strategies for making it happen, allowing you to live it up in locales as near at hand as Montana or Mexico or as exotic as Thailand or South Africa. Use this as a month-to-month guide: French Polynesia in March, the Greek islands in May, St. Barths in August. Besides, with all the bad economic news, who doesn't need an escape plan?
