ARE YOU LOOKING FOR AN EXOTIC DESTINATION FOR YOUR NEXT VACATION?

Are you looking for an exotic destination for your next vacation? Is one of your primary goals to relax and take in the local sights and customs at your own pace? An Arabian retreat could be the ideal trip for you.

You can find hotels that will pamper you, along with retreats situated under the desert sky. Spend time relaxing in Sinia desert or the magnificent Sahara. Both can be a spiritual journey that gives you a feeling of inner peace. If you prefer luxury, there are plenty of spas and hotels ready to accommodate almost any whim you might have.

Before you book your Arabian retreat, take a look at what some of the hotels, restaurants, and spas have to offer.

Where to Stay and Relax

It’s impossible to relax and unwind if your accommodations make sleep difficult. You want the hotel to have comfortable beds and all the amenities within easy access. It also doesn’t hurt if the view is as relaxing as the hotel’s interior. This is what you get at the Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi.

During your stay, you can participate in the hotel’s yoga classes. Led by certified instructions, you can relax as you put yourself through the various poses. Yoga also encourages meditation which is something you can continue to practice back home. The views from the hotel are breathtaking, and many of the guest rooms look out over the Arabian Sea. This island sanctuary also boasts beautiful gardens and an outdoor pool.

Relax Over Food

Middle-eastern cuisine has grown in popularity around the world, and chances are you are familiar with a few popular dishes. Hotels and even desert retreats either have restaurants on-site or have meals catered in. However, if you want to sit back, take in the local atmosphere it is best to visit a local cafe.

Whether you are in Jordan, Omar, Egypt or the U.E.A., you’ll find a neighborhood cafe on almost every street corner. Sit down for a while and enjoy sipping on strong Kaffe. sample some of the local delicacies. One of the best reasons to visit a cafe is that you will never feel rushed. Take your time, enjoy the various sights and sounds. When you’re ready, take a leisurely stroll through the city. No matter where you choose to go, there will always be something to see.

If your vacation takes you to the Palestinian Territories, be sure to stop by the Darna Restaurant. Here you’ll enjoy traditional cuisine in a relaxing atmosphere.

Meditate in the Desert

Desert retreats are a great way to decompress and forget about life’s daily stresses. There are plenty to choose from. Some offer nothing but luxury and pampering, while others are geared for the more adventurous traveler.

Al Manara hotel in Saraya Aqaba, Jordan is part of the Marriott family. This five-star hotel will pamper you indoors and outside. Along with the luxurious spa and two fine dining restaurants, you can also spend time in the tranquil desert. Go stargazing with an astronomer. Find Ursa Major and Minor, along with Cassiopeia and Scorpius. take a few minutes, or longer, for yourself for meditation or just contemplating your life.

If you want to tour some of the famous local sights, Petra is not far, along with Nabatean petroglyphs. Visit the Wadi Rum desert and enjoy a meal with the local Bedouins before heading back to the Al Manara for a relaxing night’s sleep.

Get Away From it All

If you really want to unwind and unplugged stay at the Adrere Amellal hotel in Siwa, Egypt. Along with the absence of USB ports, the hotel also does not have electricity. Don’t worry, you’re not “roughing it”, only getting away from all modern distractions.

Useful travel tips for first-time international travelers

Exploring the world is one of the best things you can do with your life. Fulfilling your wanderlust can be one of the most fulfilling feelings ever. Spending your hard earned money on travel is a very logical thing to do, instead of blowing it on a party or an expensive bag or shoes. Travelling gives us an insight into other cultures, what kind of food they eat, their traditions, languages, almost everything about them. I have to say, as an avid traveler, who visits at-least one country a year, visiting the places and seeing the beautiful and magnificent architectural marvels of other countries truly makes me happy to be able to visit these places. I do learn so much when I am in the moment and immerse myself in the environment that I am in. It is truly worth every penny. If you are a first-time international tourist, you have come to the right place. Here are some useful tips.

  • Always keep a copy of your passport information, visa, and drivers’ license handy because these documents could save you if you get lost.
  • Speaking of your passport, be sure to acquire one well in advance. Before you book your trip.
  • Choose the destination after a decent amount of research. If you already have a destination in your bucket list then just go there.
  • Do not be afraid to ask the people in the airport for assistance. They work there for a reason; their job is to help people who need it.
  • Do not keep all your money in one bag. Distribute it among 2-3 bags, most important of all keep some more in your carry-on bag. Since it will be with you all the time, there are fewer chances of it getting lost.

  • Do not put any fragile items in your check-in baggage.
  • When you arrive at your destination, give yourself some time to get adjusted to the time difference, climate, etc. You will experience jet lag if you have a fixed sleep cycle.
  • Try to smile and be kind to everyone you meet there. You never know who could help you out in your moment of need.
  • Check in with your doctor once if you have any medical conditions and get an A-okay from the doctor, to travel. Traveling can be tiresome, so you need to know if you are up for it, mentally and physically.
  • Go to your bank and make sure your credit card works in the country you are visiting. You DO NOT want to be stranded in a strange country without any money, do you?
  • The best thing to do would be to get guide books and book tourist packages, this way you will get to cover a lot of places with the help of guides. You can relax on the days where you just want to laze by the pool.

 

Tips for choosing a restaurant while traveling

When you are traveling, food plays a significant role as you will probably be tired and you need good, nutritious food that doesn’t give you stomach problems. That should be the last thing on your mind; getting sick while on vacation. Even the thought of it sends chills down my spine because I choose to grab every opportunity to be out of my hotel room when I am traveling. I love traveling, and I would hate to be physically incapable of fulfilling my wanderlust. You can avoid food poisoning by eating right.

Most hotels (not motels for sure) will have a great complimentary spread for breakfast. Fill up and eat as much as you can; you are going to need all that energy for the rest of your day. Eat two eggs (cooked however you want), croissants, bagels with cream cheese, a lot of fresh cut up fruits with some fruit juice and some cereal. These foods are fibrous and rich in protein and some carbs as well, which you will require. So when you fill up in the morning, you reduce the risk of eating out falling sick.

Do not binge on street food, especially ones that are literally being prepared and sold on the street. The dust and dirt from all the vehicles passing by would have gotten into the food, so play it safe; eat only in restaurants.

When you do get around lunch time, ask the people around you for a restaurant that serves the cuisine of your choice, ask multiple people. If you hear the name of that specific restaurant more than once go there, it’s probably really good and hygienic.

If you have sometime before your trip then, do yourself a favor and do some research of your own. Do not entirely depend on your tour guide of the people there to assist you. Look on Pinterest, read some reviews, trust those reviews. Go for food tastings; you will undoubtedly encounter people who know some fantastic restaurants that serve exquisite food.

Take a stroll down the road; the best food could be available right down the street.

This actually happened to me. I was in London, vacationing with my family and one evening we took a walk down the road from our hotel. We were staying near the London Bridge so we assumed every restaurant there would be incredibly pricey. But to our delight, we found this quaint little Indian place called “The Little Taj Mahal” which served some of the best north Indian food I have ever had. The owner was originally from India, and he immigrated there with his family and opened up a nice little restaurant.

If you just get off your phone and go out and look around, not only for the traveler in you, but the resident in your own city as well, who knows what you may discover.

Budget-friendly shopping locations on the planet

People travel for pleasure, leisure, plain wanderlust, but hey there are some shopaholics who make shopping a significant aspect of their trip. We shop because we want new stuff, new stuff makes us happy. Ergo shopping makes us happy. To fulfill our bottomless pits of need, we need an unlimited bank account which would agree to buy us whatever we want and whenever we want it. That’s a little unlikely, isn’t it? If you are someone who wants to find a cheaper way to fulfill your shopping desires, well you have come to the appropriate place. Here are the top budget-friendly shopping locations in the world, you will literally get lost in the amount of stuff these places have to offer and the price they offer it at.

–    Hong Kong is the best shopping destination is the continent of Asia, and this is not an understatement. They offer world class bargains. A plethora of tourists have come out and said that they had purchased things at a cheap price, and the quality was as good as promised.

–    Madrid (Spain) has no less than 55,000 boutiques. They have a wide range of goods to quench your thirst for shopping. Huge departmental stores, great designer boutiques, flea markets that house rare and worthy items are some of Spain’s offerings to the fellow shopaholic. If you are a bold haggler, you mustn’t miss El Rastro which would be Spain’s largest flea market which happens every Sunday.

–    Tokyo, being the capital of Japan has a place for every need. Technology, clothing, footwear, you name it, they’ve got it, at very decent prices as well. You find trendy clothing at less than $10, now that’s a bargain. So fret not when you are shopping in Japan, it was reported to be Asia’s 4th cheapest city and a hell of a shopping destination.

–    Shoppers from all around the planet, venture into Mexico seeking a good bargain. They don’t have a manufacturing scale as massive as China, but Mexico is a great place to find designer goods that are in-fact manufactured locally and the availability is indeed in wholesale prices. The quality of these handmade products cannot be found anywhere in the USA. Affordable and you get your moneys’ worth, if that isn’t smart shopping, I don’t know what is!

–    Vietnam challenges the bargain-seeking adventurous soul in you. The possibilities of finding literally anything in the wide spectrum of unlimited products are indeed never-ending, in the ‘Nam. If you are on tight resources, then think of Vietnam to finish most of your shopping.

With the above list in your possession be sure to shop till you drop, and I do not mean that literally.
