We can always count on the folks at Forbes to come up with year end lists that we actually want to pay attention to. If more travel is one of your New Year's resolutions, then you definitely want to check out the 21 Best Budget Travel Destinations for 2017.

Places were chosen by travel experts, and were based on unique locales, current currency rates, and I'm guessing that maybe the 'fun' factor fits in there as well.
