I think the more popular camera for travel would be the Canon A70 or A75. A brand new one would cost around $500, but if you don't mind, I'm sure you could get it at the stated budget 2nd hand.

The manual controls would be good in future, if you're getting serious into photography too!

I agreed with what The Cheat said.. if u are really concern about the battery life, find a camera that uses AA batteries.

Alternatively get rechargeable AA batteries and a compact charger.
If you take lots of photos ensure you have the means to store them outside of the media card(s) you carry, lest you run out of storage space on those cards. Alternatively you can shoot can slightly lower photo quality settings, which shouldn't decrease the quality of prints too much if you plan on printing only 4Rs.

The advantage of A70 / A75 is there is manual and creative control for you to grow in the photography skills. If what you need is just an automatic point and shoot camera, I highly recommend Nikon 3700 which is very small, very light weight, stylist, very strong movie recording and a lot of preset mode for a novice user.
3700 is better than 3200 in term of night landscape shot and better movie mode. and some additional feature like sound release shutter.
