Looking for a good place to get away from it all? Why not visit a land once riddled in war? It sounds sarcastic, but these past playgrounds for fascists and guerrilla fighters are now safe to visit again and many of them are absolutely stunning. Plus, because many of these have not seen a huge boom in the tourism industry, the cost of visiting is cheap. ProTraveler has a great list of 6 spots to visit now that their conflicts are over. Cambodia, Angola (shown to the right) and Peru are a few of these beautiful destinations.
Also, MSN says Nicaragua and South America are also worth visiting these days for the same reasons. Their list of 10 bargain destinations is spectacular.
