     Traveling trends are consistently producing terrific buzz for travelers. Patterns from very early 2019 up until this time, as observed by travel industries, are noticing changes from long, large, and pure vacation purposes to short and mixed vacation objectives. Let us see what’s most likely to be fashionable in the next year by observing the largest traveling fads of 2019.

Tiny Vacations

     In going with short holidays, the location needs to be conveniently accessed for a short vacation. It’s paramount to select the purposeful, time-saving activities – the remarkable ones. It could be a short family members vacation or solo trip.

Stroll touring is most advised during this sort of holiday. Native foods, gallery expeditions, and scenic strolls are the most pleasing activities you can do. There are numerous “walkable” cities in the world where you can enjoy these meaningful activities such as Kowloon in Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, London, England, and numerous others.

Wellness-oriented Tours

     With the ease of access to health information online, wellness-conscious visitors always associate tourism with health. As reported by the International Wellness Institute, wellness tourism is growing rapidly and has actually produced even more destinations with wellness orientations. One valid example is the existence of hot springs around the globe. These are thought to have healing abilities and were created by the existing hotels – however, with a new clientele in mind.

 

     The wellness locations most tourists chose include nature, specific weather conditions, peaceful destinations, day spas, culture, yoga exercise, and exterior health and fitness activities. These wellness destinations will certainly not just ease you physically but also emotionally. There are numerous places worldwide that supply solutions like these, such as  Hawaii, Italy, Bali, Arizona, as well as many more.

Bleisure Trips

     This holiday incorporates business with leisure. The majority of those who take a trip for their organization offer themselves many opportunities to take pleasure in tourism after organizational duties. Many tourists in bleisure journeys, search for the closest visitor destination to discover considering that they have just limited location and time choices. Moreover, they are not traveling for a getaway; rather searching for possibilities near the place they check-in. The most joyful activities to do throughout these vacations are days at the shopping center, memento searching and walking tours. Yet you can still increase the fun as long as your schedule permits. Beaches, riders, and golf courses are the next best tasks to do.

 

Social Media-inspired Holidays

     In today’s electronic age, selecting holiday destinations is more than likely, social media-inspired. Attractive pictures of lovely locations are published on social media as well as internet sites that permit first-timers to have first experience with the prospective destination. When visited, tourists might refer the destination to pals. Since pictures on social networks systems are mainly artistic, there are more real-life cosmetically artistic locations that you can choose from such as in Rome, Italy, Paris, France, Berlin, as well as Germany.

 

     Staying on par with these four large traveling trends will certainly maintain your itinerary. This will even make your traveling trip a lot more successful and greatly more satisfying.

Thai Government Wants Tourists to Wear Digital Wristbands

Published

on

Tourists will be required to wear digital wristbands in Thailand. This will enable the Thai government to easily track their health status while touring the said Southeast Asian country.

To sever possible COVID-19 transmission, Thailand plans to require would-be tourists to wear digital wristbands while staying in the country. This mandate will allow the government to track their whereabouts including their health as they visit Thailand’s different traveler destinations.

Last month, the said Southeast Asian nation opened its borders to a group of Chinese visitors—the first ever arrival since April when Thailand halted inbound travels to control COVID-19 transmission. The country has been doing quite well in the battle against the novel coronavirus. Hence, it has been reluctant to reopen its doors to visitors wanting to explore its various tourist spots.

The recent October group of Shanghai tourists were automatically required to undergo a 14-day quarantine period, especially since they planned to stay within the country for a month. They were also relegated to a government-accredited hotel.

Nevertheless, aside from the automatic quarantine period, recent Thailand updates assert that the nation now plans to mandate all approved, incoming tourists to wear digital wristbands, “Smart Bands” as they are called. These devices will help the government track the tourists, particularly their health, as they visit the different places within the country.

The said digital device measures the body temperature of the wearer which will, then, notify nearby health centers. Tourists who wear digital wristbands will also be able to ask for help should they ever get lost while touring the country.

Not all would-be visitors will be able to enter Thailand, however. At present, only visitors from low-risk areas will be given a Special Tourist Visa. This visa can be obtained by paying 2,000 Baht ($64.25).

Additionally, a would-be tourist needs to have a “fit-to-fly certificate” from a certified doctor, a negative PCR COVID-19 test result, and a health insurance policy of at least $100,000 that will cover COVID-19 treatment within the country.

If you plan to travel to Thailand, you must be able to secure these requirements before buying your ticket. See to it that you will be coming from a country that is enlisted as a low-risk area by the Thailand government. You should also obtain the necessary “fit-to-fly certificate” from your doctor, have a negative PCR COVID-19 test at least 72 hours before your flight, and an insurance policy of the above-stated amount before you can apply for the said Special Tourist Visa.

As of writing, Thailand has only less than 4,000 total COVID-19 cases, a far cry from the overall COVID-19 cases worldwide that has already reached more than 46 million. Hence, the Thai government strictly monitors tourists who are allowed to enter their borders. The planned mandate to require tourists to wear digital wristbands while staying in the country will greatly help control possible COVID-19 transmission which may be brought on by the gradual reopening of its borders.

Travel the World for FREE

Yes, you can travel the world for free if you exchange your hard work and time for the cause. Here are some interesting ways to travel for free, so get planning and decide where you want to visit.

Published

Have you ever daydreamed about traveling the world? If so, you most likely came to the realization that global travel is out of your reach financially, but what if it wasn’t? There are creative ways to finance vacations that only require a little elbow grease or some imaginative ideas. Yes, you can travel the world for free if you exchange your hard work and time for the cause. Here are some interesting ways to travel for free, so get planning and decide where you want to visit.

 

Points

Obviously if you travel a lot anyway for business or use your rewards credit card often you can redeem points or miles. This is probably the most popular way people travel for virtually free. Of course you need to accrue all these points or miles so necessarily this isn’t free. Plus we aren’t all lucky enough to travel for business or have the money in the first place to earn points. So let’s explore some more imaginative methods to financial freedom while traveling.

 

Contest Winner

Sure winning contests require a high amount of luck unless you play the odds. Enter as many contests that offer travel rewards as possible. I know people who consider this a part time job they enter so many contests but also travel for free all the time. Search the internet for contests and start entering. Most of them do it just for your information, so get an email account specifically for the contests and hopefully you can win something awesome.

 

Promote

Find companies that are looking for people to spread the word about them. These grassroots campaigns are gaining popularity and all they ask in return are blog posts or instagram pictures. Seek these companies out and offer up your services. Maybe a Cruise line wants you to go to retirement homes passing out flyers on weekends. This type of part time or seasonal employment can earn you free trips in return. I’d gladly give up a few hours here and there to earn a free cruise.

 

Couch Surf

It may not be glamorous but couch surfing is a recent phenomenon that is taking off. Websites like Couchsurfing.com offer the opportunity for like-minded people to open up their homes to travelers in exchange for the same in return. A large online community has continued to grow over the last few years, so check it out. This is a great way to stay for free while you are traveling. Now you just have to get there.

 

Shill for the company

Many travel companies will hook you up if you get a few other people to pay for their services. So if you sell vacation packages to a few co-workers, that company will give you a free trip in return. Sure, you’ll have to sell a little bit but the rewards are completely worth it. I guess nothing in life is truly free.

 

Go Fund Me

OK, I know this may be overused lately but Crowdsourcing platforms like GoFundMe.com or IndieGoGo.com allow people to start a fund for certain causes. Maybe your brother has a hard life and needs a vacation but you can’t afford it yourself, you create an account on one of these websites and ask people to each give a small amount. This can quickly snowball where 100 people each give $5; you suddenly have a significant amount of money.

 

So now you have ideas about how to travel for free, so get out there and start enjoying travel.
