Alex, Rest and recuperation expert
Take the time to do… nothing. Simply rest and relax and enjoy the present moment. Sometimes the beauty of a holiday is in the time that you can just stop, breath and relax. A trip to Sri Lanka for example can involve plenty of rest and recuperation thanks to its beautiful beaches and serene landscapes… Just imagine it: feet in the water, sipping on a fresh coconut, the sound of the waves. There you go, you’re on your way to Asia already!
What I love most about Asia is the people’s approach to life: they are calm, they are serene and they are at peace. Even in the big Asian cities you will find this optimistic nonchalance, which encourages even the most erratic person relax. The cities are home to people with this mentality, however I believe it’s the landscapes of Asia that truly instil relaxation in the traveller. Sit, relax and gaze into the rice fields… You’ll notice they are not just green but rather a kaleidoscope of colours, that change in different light. It’s amazing what you can notice when you just stop. Travel to the Maldives, Philippines, Thailand or Indonesia to spend your days lounging on the beach sipping coconuts and having your feet massaged. Sail along the Mekong River in Vietnam and discover South Vietnam.
Tailor-made holiday to Asia are a great way to combine relaxation and discovery. You’ll get to see and experience the continent but also plenty of time to relax and recuperate before returning home. Our suggested itineraries can be entirely customizable allowing you to pepper your relaxing holiday to Asia with as much discovery as you like.
Rest and recuperation in Asia
At Shanti Travel we believe that our whole life is a journey made up of countless experiences and moments. Some large, some small, but all just as important. We believe holidays are like that too. Sometimes on holiday we want to see the most and do the most, but other times a holiday is there so you can relax. That’s why we’ve designed a number of holidays in Asia which help you relax as you immerse yourself in the destination’s culture and traditions.
The Philippines and Indonesia are the flagship destinations in Asia for relaxing holidays. From the rice fields of Luzon to the beaches of Coron, a trip to the Philippines mixes nature, friendly encounters and paradisiacal beaches. Bali is one of the most famous destinations in Indonesia where you can travel to the sandy beaches of Lombok and the Gili Islands to spend your days catching rays and swimming in the clear blue waters. A Bali holiday will include traditional massages, strolls through rice fields and boat excursions to swim with turtles and manta rays. The beaches of the Bay of Bengal are a great place to finish up your holiday to Burma, offering beautiful beaches to perfectly combine cultural immersion and relaxation.
Holiday to Sri Lanka and add a few days in the Maldives at the end to top off your Asian tour. Jeep safari through the jungles of Sri Lanka spotting the elephants and leopards at sunset, walk through the lush green tea plantations before waking up to the sound of the waves in the Maldives. We believe the best way to see Asia and still return home feeling relaxed and rested is to alternate your free days and discovery days. Contact your Travel Expert today so that they can design your relaxing holiday to Asia, that is still sparkled with plenty of culture and discovery.
