3 Great Winter Sun Destinations

Jul 17, 2017

With all due respect to the winter-lovers out there, most people would rather casually relax on a beach in the sun, than have an exciting adventure in the freezing snow.

Fortunately, it is easier than ever to travel far and wide and find your perfect winter sun spot. Winter sun destinations offer all the benefits of a pleasant summer in the middle of Christmas, or other winter holidays. All the more beautiful, these destinations feature some iconic landscapes.

Here are three suggestions for a wondrous winter sun vacation.

Thailand islands

No wonder Thailand is one of the most popular winter tourism destinations. It features amazing tropical beaches, beautiful landscapes, wide range of tasty local foods, and m many globally-renowned attractions. And last but not the least, it has a stable dry season lasting from December to April, which ensures that your winter sun holiday really lives up to it’s name.

Verified winter sun destinations in Thailand include the Thailand’s islands. There are dozens of them, and they vary in their concept of tourism – from extroverted luxury to complete romantic intimacy. They all feature their fantasy-like white sand beaches, swaying palm trees and beautiful seas. A barefoot chill-out on a Thai island will probably make you think: why was Robinson Crusoe so worried instead of instantly embracing his lost-world paradise?

Phuket is the biggest of all Thai islands and one of the most popular and iconic Thailand destinations. It’s equally popular with hardcore backpackers as with easygoing mainstream tourists. Phuket takes pride in it’s dazzling beaches and greenery, the clarity of Andaman Sea and memorable sunsets.

Costa Rica

Fine-sand beaches and constantly warm weather are a classic for a good winter sun location. But Costa Rica offers so much more: there are not many places from where you can gaze at the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea simultaneously, but you can do so from Costa Rica’s Irazú volcano.

If you are attracted to rich natural world and biodiversity, Costa Rica might be ideal for you. It is one of the greatest biodiversity hotspots, with around 87,000 species – or 6% of all species known to man – living there. Costa Rica has advanced nature conservation programs, and of course, professional tours through their national parks.

But Costa Rica is not all-wilderness. You can enjoy lush colonial architecture in the beautiful capital San José, one of the Latin America’s safest cities.

Madeira

A Portugal archipelago located in the Atlantic, southwest of Portugal and just a few hundred kilometers north of the famous Tenerife, Madeira features mild and warm Mediterranean climate and striking sea-and-mountains scenery. It’s special offers include whale watching and water sports such as windsurfing.

Capital of the island is called Funchal, and it’s the best bet when it comes to choosing your base on Madeira. If you’re seeking some quiet time, there are more rural options too.

Some caution when picking a date for your travel is necessary to ensure that you’ll get good weather during your holiday. It’s better to visit Madeira in late February than in January, for instance. There is some risk of rain throughout the winter, but those six hours of sunshine a day are almost guaranteed.

What a wonderful world

All of the destinations have their own advantages and quirks, and while it’s hard to say which one is perfect, all of them are truly beautiful. Other than these suggestions, there are many other possible destinations, making it possible to pick a winter sun destination which perfectly matches your personal sensibility. How lucky we are to live in such a beautiful world.

Jul 6, 2017

 Hiking is a healthy exercise that you can do in any place, any country. Known for its technology and traditions, Japan also values its environment. The country offers numerous hiking trails around the country, whether you are an enthusiast or a first-timer, Japan has a hiking trail suited for you. Listed below are some of the best hiking trails found around Japan.

  1. Mount Fuji

Don’t miss the opportunity of hiking in one of Japan’s icons, Mount Fuji! It is located between the Shizuoka and Yamanashi Prefectures, just 2 hours away from Tokyo. Thousands of people go during the hiking season of July to September. Attempting to visit this mountain outside the hiking season is unadvisable as it is dangerous. If you do plan on tackling Mount Fuji, keep in mind that it is a moderate to difficult climb due to the steep and rocky trail to the summit. While it is possible to make this a day trip, it is much better to stay for a night since hikers may experience altitude sickness while climbing the mountain.

  1. Fushimi Inari Shrine

If you’re in the Kyoto area, Fushimi Inari shrine is a hiking trail that you can visit. It is also one of Japan’s most famous sites, known for its seemingly endless tunnel formed by torii gates which leads to the top of Mount Inari. The hike is easy enough, even for first-timers, and takes about two to three hours to complete.

  1. Mount Yoshino

Another recommended hiking trail in the Kansai region is Mount Yoshino! This is Japan’s most famous cherry blossom spot, so expect a stunning view of 30,000 cherry blossom trees blooming during spring in the months of March and April. Mount Yoshino is actually a slope and is divided to four different areas from the base of the mountain to the top of the mountain. This hiking trail is probably one of the most picturesque trails you’ll ever visit since you can enjoy going through the thousands of cherry trees as you climb the mountain.

  1. Noboribetsu Hell Valley

Noboribetsu is located in Hokkaido and it is the area’s most famous hot spring resort. If you are up for enjoying some natural hot springs, then the trip to Noboribetsu Hell Valley is something you’ll greatly enjoy. There are a number of hiking trails in this valley where you will also encounter a number of sulfurous mud ponds, and a still-hot river that has a natural foot bath along the way.

  1. Mount Tsurugi

Mount Tsurugi, located in Iya Valley in Shikoku Island, is one of Japan’s top 100 mountains. It is a popular hiking destination in Japan with a moderate climbing difficulty. It gives its visitors the option to climb the mountain or to make use of the chairlift that takes you all the way up near the summit. Reaching the top of the mountain will give you a panoramic view of its surrounding mountains.

There are countless trails in Japan that any visitor – beginner or experienced – can tackle. One rule that every tourist has to remember is that you should always prepare for the hike. A spontaneous decision to hike is not a good idea, especially if you don’t have the appropriate attire for it. Safety should always be a priority.

  3. If your schedule allows then avoid the weekend, as the cost drops during weekdays and you can enjoy site seeing within your budget.
  4. Arriving early is always a good idea. Firstly, to get the early bird discounts and secondly to avoid the crowd.

  6. Check the beach rule in advance whether the beach allows carrying your drink. It is always a better deal than to buy drinks at an exorbitant price. Make sure to keep a check on the bills for your drinks at the club/hotel.

5 Helpful Items to Take With You When Backpacking in Australia

May 17, 2017

One of the most popular ways of visiting Australia on a budget is by backpacking. It is really quite perfect, especially for long trips, as you’ll be able to be flexible and travel between Australia’s different cities while exploring each one at your leisure.

When planning any backpacking trip it is important that you are careful about what you pack. Needless to say space is at a premium and you’ll only want to carry the essentials. With that in mind, here are 5 helpful items that should definitely make your list:

  • Flip flops

Also known as thongs in Australia, flip flops are every backpacker’s best friend and are perfect for traveling regardless of the weather. If you don’t already own a pair you can undoubtedly find one on the cheap in Australia itself, and use it throughout your trip.

  • Waterproof bag

Make no mistake it really can rain quite heavily in Australia which is why it makes sense to bring a small waterproof bag that you can use as your day pack. It should be big enough to house your camera, smartphone, wallet and any other items you feel you’ll want with you as you walk around and explore.

  • Inflatable pillow

Backpacking on a budget often means spending long hours on busses, trains and other cheap forms of transportation. Having an inflatable pillow with you can make long journeys a lot more comfortable.

  • Sun screen

When it isn’t rainy, Australia can get quite hot – particularly during certain seasons. To be safe it is always a good idea to have some high factor sun screen with you and you may even want to consider sunglasses or a cap if you want to shield your eyes.

  • Ear plugs

Whether you’re staying in shared accommodation at a hostel or trying to get some shut eye on a bus – having ear plugs will be a huge advantage. Just make sure you find a pair that fits and are comfortable before you leave.

Of course in addition to all these items you’ll also want the essentials such as your passport with a valid visa Australia, any other important documentation, and travel cards or emergency funds. That being said the 5 items listed above will prove useful and should also be prioritized, as they’ll make your experience backpacking in Australia a bit more convenient and comfortable.

Better Features That Hotels Should Be Implementing to Improve Your Experience

May 11, 2017

Imagine the following scenario: you’ve been flying to Southeast Asia from the UK for what probably felt like days. You finally get to your hotel, ready to take a long nap before heading out on your adventure or visiting the popular tourist attractions. But at the hotel, the bed is so uncomfortable because the linens are overused, over-bleached, and worn out. You’ve already paid a fortune to stay in your hotel and now you have to deal with horrible linens. If you’ve stayed in a hotel before, you might have already experienced something such as this. Hotels need to change the way that they serve their guests. Hotels can be doing a better job and there are a lot of better features that hotels should be implementing.

Hotels would be a lot more enjoyable if they improved a few things to help make your experience more enjoyable. From the food, to the air quality, to the linens, there are a few simple strategies that hotels can implement so guests such as you will be willing to come back and even leave positive reviews online.

Hotels Should Have Better Air Quality

Next time you check into a hotel, if you’re bold and willing, you should check the air filter in the air conditioning unit. You might be surprised to learn that a lot of “high-quality” hotels never change their air filters. It’s not a priority for hotels to clean their air filters because air filters are hidden from guests. If no one sees the air filter, the hotels don’t have to clean it, right? Well, hotels would be wise to ask their hired cleaning service to rinse out the air filters every once in a while and even replace them more frequently.

Did you know that poor air quality can cause extremely negative side effects? If you’ve ever checked out of a hotel feeling sick, you might have experienced poor air quality. Dusty air can cause difficulty breathing, it can cause people to catch a cold, and it can make it much harder for people to sleep. Next time that you check into a hotel, ask them to change the air filter before you get to your room. It’s much safer to sleep in a room with good air quality.

Hotels Need to Improve the Dining Experience

You’re already paying so much for your hotel room. Why should a low-quality meal be included in your stay? You need some nutritious options so that you can leave your hotel room for the day feeling rejuvenated. There’s nothing more disheartening than being grossed out by the food options at a hotel and having to spend more money eating somewhere else because the food wasn’t good enough.

By offering a better dining experience, hotels can encourage guests to stay longer at their hotels, leave positive reviews after checking out, and return to the same hotel the next time that they visit the area.

Hotels Need to Change Their Linens More Often

Did you know that some hotels only change their linens every three days? This means that you could potentially be sleeping in bed sheets that have collected dust and are no longer sanitary. You can definitely tell the difference between newly cleaned sheets and sheets that have been sitting on the bed for three days in a row. Hotels would improve the customer experience by changing their sheets daily. Cleaning linens costs more money for hotels, which is why they don’t always change their sheets every single day. However, if they found a way to lower their costs on sheets, they’d be able to change them more frequently and they’d be able to create a better customer experience.

There’s actually a much more cost-effective way to ensure that hotels can change out their linens every single day without increasing their costs. Unfortunately, not all hotel managers know about this solution and they often fail to consider all of their options even when their other options would actually lower their overhead costs.

Hotels Should Hire Their Linens

What’s the difference between hiring linens and purchasing them? Well, when a hotel manager purchases a set of linens, he or she has to use them as much as possible before they wear out to save the most money. Realistically, hotel bed linens and towels only last a finite amount of time before they become overused, over-bleached, rough, and coarse to the touch. When a hotel manager sees that the linens are completely worn out, he or she must throw the linens away and purchase new ones. This system for acquiring linens is not very cost-effective.

Fortunately, there’s a better way for hotel managers to save money and for guests such as you to get access to fresh, soft linens each time you stay in a hotel. Hiring linens is a great alternative to purchasing them. The cleaning process is too rigorous for conventional hospitality linens. Hotel linens can only be washed so many times before they start to cause problems for guests. Guests such as you might wake up with rashes or irritated skin because there is bleach residue on the sheets from too much washing.

With hired linens, hotels can exchange their used linens for new ones once they start to get worn out. Hiring linens is the same as hiring a service, as opposed to purchasing linens when there is never an opportunity to exchange the old linens for new and fresh ones.

Johnsons Stalbridge linen hire is a perfect alternative for hotel managers who are concerned about costs and the quality of their linens as they get older. Hotels can simply hire their linens and swap them after they start to wear out.

Hiring linens saves hotel managers money because there’s no waste involved. They simply pay for temporary use of the product and return the product when they’re done. Hiring is more cost-effective because there’s no ownership involved.

If you’re interested in staying in a hotel that hires their linens, you can call a hotel ahead of time and ask them whether they hire their linens or simply reuse the ones that they’ve had for years. You’ll be surprised to find out how much better fresh linens feel on your skin.
