It is always a good time to look forward to your holiday and make a plan. But if you are tired of just laying in the sun near the sea and listening to the sound of waves, which is without doubt also very nice, then you need a plan on how to diversify your vacation. Here are 5 tips for you on how to make your holidays a little bit unusual and extraordinary.
First comes first, forget for a while about popular vacation destinations that you’ve probably already visited more than once. In such countries, there is little that can surprise you. You can enjoy your holidays by watching NBA match in New York with friends. Choose the most atypical country, for example, Congo or Singapore. As another option, you can close your eyes and poke your finger at any place on the map, so you will choose your next location by chance.
The second tip is to choose an unusual way of transport to your vacation destination. If the Google map shows you a 2 or 3 hour flight, try to find an alternative way to the plane. It can be a ship, a boat, a helicopter, a bicycle and even an ordinary car could diversify the trip and make it more fun. You can also combine several ways of transportation, for example, if you decide to go to Africa from Europe, you can get on a cruise ship to the UAE, then rent an unusual car. In almost any country, it is possible to use car sharing services and take a car for a few days to explore the city on your own. To diversify the trip, it is possible to rent not an ordinary car that you don’t use to drive in your city, but an unusual one, you can even choose Ferrari hire in Dubai and become a racing driver for a day. Such a ride on a sports car along the coast of the sea will definitely give you an unforgettable experience. Car rental services are becoming more popular. It is a convenient, mobile and inexpensive form of transport especially when traveling to another country. You have the opportunity to go around all the sights yourself at any time convenient for you. It’s definitely worth a try.
The third piece of advice concerns housing, where and how you will live during your vacation. Greek Villas can be a perfect option for you if you have the budget. Try to choose and book several places in advance, do not immediately look for the most popular hotels, try to find unusual places, for example, authentic houses of city residents who rent them daily or a tree house, even a tent can be an excellent solution. After spending time in several places, you will get even more impressions. You will be able to compare different types of housing and choose in the future what you like the most.
Advice number four is to try to learn as much as possible about the culture of the people in the country where you are going, communicate with the locals, and try their national food. It is not necessary at all to go to the coolest restaurant in the city, you can try the most delicious and unusual dish in street tents. You will be surprised, but in some countries such street food tents have even received Michelin stars. You can try to learn a local language, if it’s not international English, of course. This also includes all possible cultural entertainment, games, dancing, music, and so on. All this will help you to dive deeper into the culture of the country and learn something new.
The last tip will be completely optional but quite important, try not to use your gadgets, phones and laptops as much as possible during the trip. Use your phone only as a camera to capture the highlights. But don’t post everything on Instagram immediately, give yourself time to take a break from the digital world. Let your trip be a little detox from the Internet, just make a promise to yourself in advance so you won’t update your Facebook page every hour. Such obvious tips could definitely help to diversify your vacation and make it unforgettable compared to the previous trips. Enjoy it!
