In addition, with US$130, you can spend a couple of days eating your bodyweight in francesinhas, a gut-busting sandwich which originated in Porto, with return flights to Portugal’s second city with TAP Air Portugal.

Earlier, Ha Long Bay in Vietnam's northern province of Quang Ninh has been ranked third among the six beaches around the world that naturally glow, according to a list released by Reader’s Digest, a US general-internet family magazine.
Ha Long Bay is one of Vietnam’s most popular tourist destinations, but it’s not just because of its infamous limestone islands covered in verdant rainforests.
“At night, boat tours take people out on the water to see the bioluminescent glow. When each swimmer splashes, the blue-green light from the algae emerges,” Reader’s Digest wrote.
In 2017, Quang Ninh welcomed a total of 9.87 million tourists, including 4.28 million foreigners, according to Quang Ninh provincial Department of Tourism.
The province aims to attract over 12 million visitors in 2018, including five million foreigners.
