Many countries are open for Russian tourists – and this is not only Armenia with Kazakhstan and Turkey with Egypt, but also many once beloved and popular, but today slightly forgotten destinations. We can still go there, although the logistics have become seriously complicated. Moreover, many states have already lifted pandemic restrictions and canceled covid entry rules, so there will be no problems crossing the border.
You can go to Israel by direct flights from Moscow, Sochi and Mineralnye Vody. However, it is very difficult to catch such a ticket at an adequate price – you need to monitor and buy much in advance. There is an alternative – flights with transfers in Istanbul (3.5 hours). In this case, it turns out to be 2 times cheaper, and for routes with 2-3 connections, the prices are even 3 times lower, but it will take a day to get there. Planes fly to Tel Aviv. If you take tickets about 2 months before the date of departure, you can buy them for 33,000 RUB one way for a direct flight and for 13,000 RUB for a flight with 3 transfers.

Da Nang will cost less: a package with a hotel of the same level – from 185,000 RUB.
The most budget ticket Moscow – Ho Chi Minh City costs 50,000 RUB one way with 3 transfers in Bishkek, Alma-Ata and Delhi. It will take 1.5 days to fly.
