If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that holidays are the best way to unwind and open your mind to other cultures, places, and people.
There’s a great big world out there, and you’re truly missing out on some wonderful, once-in-a-lifetime experiences by only surrounding yourself with the familiar. After all, ‘to travel is to live’, as they say!
Discovering where or when to travel can be difficult, however. Particularly as there are literally thousands of destinations to you to choose from – whether in your own country, or abroad.
Thankfully, we’ve narrowed these down to just four types of holidays that everyone must experience at least once in their lifetime. Trust us, you’ll be adding these to your bucket list faster than you can say ‘count me in’!
The European Holiday
Perhaps it’s because we’re based on the other side of the world, but we just can’t deny the allure of this historic and diverse region. If you want to see multiple popular countries within the space of a few weeks, then a European holiday is certainly for you!
If you’re not a big fan of taking multiple flights, then a trip to Europe can be as simple as an airplane trip there and back, whilst utilising train travel to your different destinations in-between. With many of these beautiful countries sharing borders, you can get from A to B within just hours via rail. Too easy!
With each country as varied as the language that comes with it, a European holiday is the best way to experience a multitude of cultures, landscapes, attractions, and more. Just be sure to book yourself a Europe Tour so you don’t miss out on any of the action (or the intriguing facts that only a tour guide will tell you!).
The Cruise Holiday
If you don’t like factoring-in transit time with your trip, why not use the transit as the actual holiday itself? The cruise holiday is perfect for lounging back and enjoying some of the most stunning ocean views you’ll ever experience, all whilst having easy access to fine dining, entertainment, and other luxurious activities on-board.
The trip takes even more exciting turns when the ship docks at various destinations, ready for you to embark for a few hours and experience the culture, sights, and sounds (not to mention tastes) of a new region. Then it’s back to – you guessed it – more lounging around by the pool with a cocktail (or mocktail) in your hand. That’s the life, right?
Whether you dream of heading to New Zealand, the Caribbean, Asia, or more – there’s certainly a cruise to suit every desired destination.
The Relaxing Resort Holiday
Although similar to the cruise holiday, a relaxing resort holiday is the ideal choice for those who cringe at the thought of being ‘stuck’ on a boat for days on end (each to their own, we suppose!). At a resort, you can also enjoy lounging by the pool with an iced beverage in-hand, as well as dining options, entertainment, and attractions within the vicinity.
There are plenty of popular regions that offer five-star resort accommodation, with perhaps the most-visited of these destinations being Bali. With a wide range of Bali deals on offer to help travellers save money, who could blame people for embracing this naturally-stunning location? Bali is particularly popular among Aussies, as the destination is just a few hours away via plane. Win-win!
The Home Soil Holiday
Who says you have to visit another country entirely in order to enjoy a holiday? One of the most rewarding trips you can take can also be on home soil. In fact, there’s no time like the present to explore a stunning region that your very own nation (or even city) has to offer. You can even book a tour to ensure that you’ve fully immersed yourself in this previously unexplored region!
The ‘home soil’ holiday can often be cheaper than an international trip, so it’s also a great option for those who are on a tighter budget.
There you have it – the four types of holidays that everyone must experience at least once in their lifetime. Where will your next trip take you? We’d love to hear about it in the comments section below!
