I’m 100% in agreement. But I would also never go to those places for a quick 4 night trip. I’d go to the Caribbean or Mexico. Even some of the Central America countries for that amount of time though.
For a quick 4 night trip there are plenty of places in the states you can go to, especially if your plan is just to sit by a beach and get drunk. Also depending on where you live, you could go to Europe for a quick 4 night trip. I have done it for Dublin (threw in a day trip to the Cliffs of Moher) and Amsterdam flying from DC. The flight is not that much longer than flying to LA.

Ive heard Thailand is a cheap place to vacation outside of the flight.
I haven't been, but everyone I have spoken to said it is dirt cheap. Depending on where/when you are flying from you can find good flight deals. A lot of people like to do their vacations during the summer time, but If you don't have kids in school I would highly recommend the fall. It's normally cheaper, less congested, and the weather is perfect.
I was in Vietnam last October and it was play money. Most of the meals between my wife and I were under $7. We "splurged" on high end airbnbs that were $30/night. Our flight there was $640 each, so that was a good deal too.
