Hello there traveller 😀
On today’s topic: holiday activities!
I know some of you want to be lazy and get pampered all day,
and some of you prefer to go a little crazy and do something extreme.
Find out in this blog about what to do best in which country!
Holiday Activities #1 – Go skiing in Dubai!
Besides taking selfies with the Burj Al Arab, dinner at Gordon Ramsey’s restaurant and visiting the Majlis Gallery there is something else you can do in Dubai… and that is skiing! Located in the Mall of the Emirates, you can go indoor skiing with your friends and family.
Ski Dubai is an indoor ski resort with 22.500 square meters of ski area and it has a 85-high meter indoor mountain with 5 different slopes of varying steepness and difficulty. Aside from the slopes the resort also has a 3.000 square meter Snow Park play area with climbing towers, an icy body slide, toboggan runs, an ice cave and giant snowballs. On top of everything, Ski Dubai even houses a couple of penguins who are let out of their enclosures several times a day! The best part is that you can book penguin encounters, so you can have a bit of penguin interaction yourself.
Holiday Activities #2 – Have a detox retreat in Thailand!
Feeling sluggish or a bit fatigued lately? Have you been under a lot of pressure? Or is nothing going right at the moment? Maybe it is time for you to take a detox or cleansing retreat. Revitalizing your body, mind and spirit is something you can do best in Thailand.
One of the most famous resorts in Thailand is ‘Absolute Sanctuary‘. This moroccan style resort is haven to those who seek balance, rejuvenation and a healthy lifestyle. Massages, long walks, yoga and delicious healthy food are some of the things which are vital in a detox or cleansing retreat. There are 5 programs for which you can sign up for according to your wishes: detox, lifestyle, spa, pilates and yoga. Of course you don’t need to take a whole program, but when visiting Thailand a day of relaxation and revitalization never hurts 😉
Holiday Activities #3 – Swimming with pigs in the Bahamas!
Forget about swimming with dolphins, snorkeling with tropical fish or scuba diving but come swim with pigs! Visitors to the islands are embracing the little pink ones and love to head out to the uninhabited island of Big Major Cay to swim with them on ‘Pig Beach‘.
Swimming with pigs is just not your regular holiday activity and that is what makes it so special. Tourists, habitants of the islands and the media love the swimming pigs! The pigs live freely on the island and even though they are feral, they are extremely friendly and not shy at all. No one is sure how the pigs came there, as they aren’t native and the island is uninhabited… But no matter how they came there, swimming with pigs is a great experience for the young and the old. If you are lucky you can even swim with baby pigs! How cute is that!?
So, whether you want to be lazy or very active, there is always something to do what you like since that is where holidays are for!
