Travel Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for road warriors and seasoned travelers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When looking for new destinations to travel to, I'm usually reading blogs in the Internet, browse through Travel SE or rely on recommendations of friends. But is there a more active way of finding a suitable travel destination?

I'm looking for a website or application that allows me to enter queries in the following form:

I want to do a lot of sightseeing, a little bis of adventure, spend $1000, want to stay for 2 weeks, reach it in 2 hours from Switzerland.

And then get a recommendation of feasible destinations. Is there anything like this available?

There is a spanish website, that could fit your requirements, but has a problem: you need to speak spanish and (maybe, I have not tried) start your trip from Spain: buscounviaje.com –  Ivan Jan 21 '12 at 19:50

The HappyTellus destination finder comes very close to what you are looking for.

It has no option for the budget. I think it used to have one, but I never found it very useful. Budget is something very stretchy. It depends a lot on what you want to spend. Or put differently, you can control it, at least partially, by appropriately choosing mode for travel, accommodation, catering, etc.

Depending on the type of traveler you are, you can also try sites like ltur.com. There you specify a point of departure, and you can search according to regions and budget.

Check out Wanderfly which you can plan trips based on your budget and interests.

Flyertalk.com has forums regarding many countries and regions around the world - might be a good start for you, based on your two-hour requirement (by flight?). Although you have to become a member to post a question, you don't need to become one just to read through the threads.
