A recent report in the Telegraph out of the United Kingdom says that Thailand, Bali and Malaysia ranked highest as "best value" destinations for Winter holidays, offering "significantly better" value than the traditional U.K. Winter getaway of the Caribbean.

Based on a survey of holiday destinations conducted by the U.K. Postal Service, the Holiday Costs Barometers indexed the price of nine "essential" holiday purchases ranging from cup of coffee, suncream, a postcard and stamp, and a three-course evening meal.

The cost of the nine items in Thailand totaled £38.13 (US$60.80); in Penang, Malaysia £ 50.25 (US$80.13) and in Bali just £46.89 (US$74.77). Nearby Australia proved to be considerably more expensive at £104.95 (US$167.35).

Sarah Munro, Head of travel at the U.K. Post Office said: "When it comes to both cost and value for money, Thailand, Bali and Malaysia are the top three hotspots this winter. Not only are they the cheapest in our survey of living costs but great deals on package holidays are on offer, too."

Destinations, such as Bali, which are generally priced in U.S. dollars also benefited from a strong U.K. Poung against the dollar. In the past six months, sterling gained 21% against the dollar.
