Picking the right place
Deciding where to go and what to do on your next holiday? Perhaps all you need are some suggestions.
YOU’VE worked through the yearend holidays while everyone you knew was getting a tan on an exotic beach or warming up with a hot chocolate by a fireplace in a faraway winter wonderland.
Well, look on the bright side – you can now plan a long guilt-free holiday in the thick of a busy work season. But there are a million places you want to see and it’s hard to decide. Here are a couple of destination ideas.
Run from the heat and head to Nepal. This country fits the bill for that adventurous holiday as well as the “I just want to chill” or “I just want to spend all my savings on shopping” vacation.
Enjoy Annapurna with the adrenaline-pumping hikes and crisp clean air. Don’t forget your camera because the “sight for sore eyes” snow-capped peaks, endless valleys and pristine lakes are something you want to capture.
Shop in Kathmandu. You will fall in love with the wonderful finds you never knew existed! From the crowded streets of Thamel to the luxuries of Durbarmarg, you will come home with a whole new wardrobe to last you through 2014!
Just chill and claim back that Zen you lost to the crazy city life. Seek out Shivapuri Village. The authentic village setting and the tranquillity offered in the secluded retreats are sure to bring back that youthful glow.
Are you a true Malaysian who loves the heat? Turn off that phone and be a lazy beach bum on the welcoming white sandy beaches in Maldives.
Visit a new island every day and sip on a cocktail while you watch the sunset. Who said life can’t be perfect?
Be one with the underwater creatures. You don’t have to be a professional diver to enjoy them, so take on the challenge of the thrilling options of 40 dive sites in Vilamendhoo. Beginners can enjoy the gentle Meerufenfushi Island.
Go on an excursion. You will find little inhabited islands and quiet fishing villages that will give you a glimpse of island life. Listen to the stories of local fishermen and go night-fishing on a night reef fishing trip. Head to a nearby desert island and enjoy a great barbecue by the beach with your new friends!
Book that flight, pack that bag but be smart and protect yourself with travel insurance that will protect you throughout your holidays so you can be worry-free!
