Cape Town - Visas can be shockingly expensive, and not really what we need when planning a holiday. 

Many South Africans forget the high price certain visas but even more fail to realise you can travel visa-free to a number of places.

Luckily, a trip to one of these summery islands will save you a couple hundred rand (or even a few thousand) because South Africans do not need visas to enter.  

The perfect destinations are Asia and even South America. If you have already been to Thailand and would like to venture someplace else, then these are going to be quite a delight.
