Vacation is the most important alternative that can be done to refresh the mind from the fatigue of everyday life. Even though it’s only done for a few days, vacations can relieve stress and restore enthusiasm.
Vacations don’t really have to be expensive, you know. Those of you who only have a small vacation budget can still take a vacation sparingly, but also comfortably. Some of the budget vacation tips can be seen in the following discussion.
Choose cheap transportation
The first tip if you want a cheap, but still comfortable vacation is to make sure you choose affordable transportation. You don’t need to be proud to use public transportation or cheap transportation.
Instead of planes, try to choose transportation, such as buses, trains or boats. Although the trip may be quite long compared to using an airplane, in terms of cost, of course this type of transportation is cheaper …
After months of banning its citizens from international travel, the UK will allow its citizens to travel to a number of countries on holiday from 17 May.
“Today marks the first step in our return to prudent international travel, with measures designed to protect public health and ensure we don’t waste our hard-earned profits this year,” said UK Transport Secretary Grant Shapps.
However, the UK has only included 12 countries and territories on the green list, including Portugal, Israel, New Zealand, Australia and the Faroe Islands. Meanwhile, the four favorite destinations of British citizens for vacation such as Spain, France, Italy and the United States have not been included in the list of countries that may be visited. All four countries fall into the amber category, which requires self-isolation for those returning to the UK.
As for Turkey, another major holiday destination is on the red list
Traveling there requires …
I first visited Thailand ten years ago and since then, I’ve told anyone who will listen that it is the best holiday destination for Australians. For starters, the location is ideal. Thailand can be reached directly from Sydney in just 8 hours, adding a few hours for connecting flights either side. Secondly (and in my opinion more importantly), the paradise available when you get there is oh so worth the travel time, regardless of your flight path. For this trip a decade later, I had my sights set on visiting Koh Samui. I had never yet visited the island, having previously opted for Phuket on two occasions. So for my return to travel after the pandemic, I decided now would be as good a time as any to splurge on flights to Koh Samui and stay at the Four Seasons Koh Samui.

For as long as I can remember I have had a love affair with Thailand. In fact, I can probably even pinpoint the moment it happened and the love affair began. I was nineteen years of age when I first visited Thailand. On that trip I travelled straight to Phuket, spending a few nights in Bangkok on the way home to Australia.
But since that trip, I’ve been desperate to seek out more of the country. In particular, I have wanted to visit Chiang Mai.
One of my closest friends Sophie wrote about her time in Chiang Mai here on World of Wanderlust some five or so years ago and it was her sheer enthusiasm for Northern Thailand alone that put this city on the map for me.
And so when I found myself with an invitation to Bangkok to visit and write about the newly opened Four Seasons Bangkok,
