Let’s say that you’ve finally saved all the money that you need for the vacation that you need, and you finally bought a ticket. You’ve started packing, preparing the cash and necessities but a question came to mind. What are you going to do during the holiday? With a lot of tourist choices, it can be quite confusing but worry no further. In this article, we’ve prepared some simple stuff that you can do during a vacation, and this list does not list some cliche options such as going to a mall or buying souvenirs, consider reading this article to find out more about it.
Try something that is known to the locals
When you’re going to another country, consider doing something that is known to the locals, or at least what the state is famous for. For example, South Korea is well known for their hanbok (traditional dress), and perhaps you can try them on and take photographs which serves as a pleasant memory.
Go to local markets
It’s not a holiday if you’re going to the mall to shop for souvenirs or food, and besides it can get quite expensive to shop everything at the mall. Consider going to the local markets to get your food and to look at souvenirs; they can be much more affordable, or at least the price is still negotiable, try to get something that is much memorable instead of something that is made for tourists. A tip from us is to ask the locals on where to shop for cheap food and clothes, as asking never hurts anyone, just be nice though!
Break out from your comfort zone
Since you’re going out on holiday, consider breaking out from your comfort zone, make sure to check whether there’s an event that is open to everyone and consider joining in. For example, joining Songkran festival in Thailand can be a fun way to get new friends while also getting wet for a fun Thailand new year, if you’re feeling shy, why not ask someone to join you? Breaking out from your comfort zone can make you feel relaxed, confident and unwind after an extended period of working or being in a shell.
