Leisure Holidays in Southeast Asia
Leisure Holidays are defined by Lolei Travel as holidays that are slow paced, require limited physical activity, and have optional visits to the main attractions. The main focus is on relaxation in a comfortable resort with all facilities present in a location that eases your mind. The services we could provide for such a holiday would be:
• Airport pick-ups and drop-offs
• Hotel and resort stays
• Transfers between places (with or without guide)
• Optional Full day or half day excursions
• Meals if required
• Back up support from our office
A perfect leisure holiday includes arrival in one of the main cities. Here you would have the option to do some city tours. You could also visit some interesting slow paced side-trips to lesser visited attractions. It then moves further to other destinations where you enjoy comfortable resorts. The focus is primarily on a relaxing atmosphere and stunning scenery. The holiday usually ends for a few days free at leisure at a beach. Only a resort and breakfast are included and the rest is filled in by yourself. Easy enough if you like to keep time and activities in your own hands!
Lolei Travel’s top 3 main destinations for leisure holidays are:
An incredible place where sun, sea and stunning scenery combine perfectly with the comforts of good restaurants, easy excursions and top of the chart resorts. Krabi’s laidback atmosphere and beautiful karst formations that rise from the sea offer a true picturesque scenery. There is no rush in Krabi, there are no “musts” in Krabi; it simply is a place where life happens authentically. Let is all pass by quietly in a surrounding that seems unrivaled.
Luang Prabang is a UNESCO World Heritage site in the North of Laos. It takes away besides breaths also the thoughts that make your mind restless. The slow pace of life, stunning Mekong River scenery and authentic street image allows people to truly come to peace with life. Start the day at 5AM and observe the quaint ritual of the monks collecting alms. Visit a French bakery and enjoy breakfast afterwards. The days are easily filled in Luang Prabang. Opt to observe life on the Mekong River or at a monastery, taking in the peaceful life of the monks.
In the 1920’s, Kep was Cambodia’s prime beach resort with the elite of the capital Phnom Penh visiting over the weekends. These days the fishing town has transferred into a haven of tranquility. Its amazing sunsets, peculiar French colonial architecture and some of the best and cheapest seafood restaurants the region offer a real laidback experience. Kep’s amazing array of good quality accommodation make it a perfect place to get away from the crowds. Catch a boat to the islands in front of Kep’s coast, wander through the fishing villages or admire the amazing views from its National Park.
Leisure holidays are perfect for people who are interested in seeing the highlights in a convenient way without giving in on comfort. No matter if you are traveling on a budget or prefer the luxury style of travel, leisure holidays are possible in any budget range.
Lolei Travel recommends leisure holidays to be at least 10 days long, so you can truly chill out when moving from one highlight to another!
