All people need a break to get away from stress at work, home or school. Taking vacations is the best way to relax, unwind and spend time alone or with family in order to keep motivated and get that groove going.
Taking vacations requires planning and planning requires time – time for booking the preferred airline, finding the perfect location, researching for the cheapest hotels and scheduling the activities for the inclusive dates. That alone can also be stressful especially when it’s fast approaching with no preparations been made. As tourists, the experience should have to be stress-free, worry-free and relaxing.
In this regard, consider the benefits of booking tour packages. Not only can it save a lot of time but it’s also popular these days when people can’t seem to find that luxury of organising trips and vacations themselves. Other benefits of availing packaged tours are mentioned below:
• Convenience, completeness and quickness all rolled into one. This is the main reason why people avail of these packages. Searching for tourist attractions is

While Tokyo and Kyoto are the two most important tourist destinations in Japan, there are several other interesting places that are worth a visit.
One such interesting destination is Hiroshima, a city that has virtually risen from ashes after getting decimated completely due world’s first nuclear bomb attack during World War II. Hiroshima Peace Memorial is the most famous war memorial located in Hiroshima, symbolizing the destruction caused by the atom bomb. Another important place to visit is the Peace Memorial Museum that houses details about the events that led to the attack.
Hokkaido Island of Japan is a nature’s paradise with most of its area being protected as national parks. Filled with fantastic volcanoes, ‘bottomless’ crater lakes, hot springs and numerous mountain and ski resorts, Hokkaido is also home for Japan’s indigenous Ainu tribe. Diasetsuzan National Park is Japan’s largest national park located in central Hokkaido.
Another premier tourist destination in Japan is the Mount Fuji, the highest mountain peak in Japan with a perfectly symmetrical volcanic cone. There are various hiking trails on either sides
Arriving in Hakuba, we checked into our lodging with a few friends, stowed our things, and eagerly embarked off to the nearby ski fields. Within 30 minutes we were suited up and embarrassing ourselves trying to learn the ‘pizza’ style of skiing. The good news – the snow was super soft and powdery, an excellent cushion for when I decided to sit down (read: fell over). The bad news – face first into the snow isn’t as entertaining as I first thought. Luckily, our friends were particularly patient with us; as you can see, I eventually learned to stand! Toddlers everywhere would be so proud.
One thing is for sure – the views were superb. We soon ventured to the advanced ski fields at the top of the slopes and were astonished at the vastness of it all. It seemed as if the snow knew no bounds – every visible crevice and mountain was covered in it. We also had an interesting time getting to the “mid-way” restaurant in the middle of the intermediate slopes – sliding down at speeds exceeding 30km/hour was
The next great destination in Asia is Mount Fuji, the most important iconic symbol in Japan. UNESCO has just awarded this mountain World Heritage status, so the significance for climbing it is that much greater, but if you are not into climbing then there are so many other ways to appreciate the view. I recommend climbing Fuji at least once in your lifetime if you decide to either visit or move to Japan.
For millions of backpackers and holiday makers, Mount Fuji has been a must-go-to place, especially for those who want to experience being in the presence of one of Japan’s most venerated sites, and to feel the history of the region. It goes without saying that so many great poets, scholars, and men of high repute have trekked this mountain in search of enlightenment. For many, to get a glimpse of an ethereal realm where the Japanese race once evolved from according to ancient lore.
Many of us have not been fortunate enough to climb Mount Fuji, at least not yet. Now I have an excuse to go for it this year. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching this mountain from afar. The awe of
People all over the world take an opportunity to go on vacations during summer. For them, it’s the best time to spend time with their families and enjoy themselves before the start of schooling season and return of cold weather. Taking a break doesn’t require too much money. In fact, there are a lot of ways where tourists can enjoy their vacations and save time and money at the same time.
• When going to the airport, fall in line behind business travellers and avoid falling in line behind families that carry a lot of stuff to put into the x-ray machine tray. This is because frequent travellers already know how to move quickly through that line than the others.
• When taking a flight, choose the type of plane to ride on. Not all airplanes are made equal so it’s recommended to check out the ones that offer nice seats and amenities. Some airlines have inline Wi-Fi onboard while some do not. Newer airlines have the comfort of nicer seats and more leg room. Furthermore, not all planes also have personal television screens for passengers either. Sometimes, trips also require airport transfers.
Looking to go on holiday to somewhere with a tropical or sub-tropical climate?
If so, following some of the following tips might be useful and help you to enjoy yourself even more.
- Don’t over-economise on your luxury accommodation at the resort. Tropical can mean high humidity at some times of the year and however much you love sun and warmth, you’ll want great pool and air conditioning facilities to allow you to sometimes escape and freshen up. Some ‘bargain-basement’ holiday accommodation might be disappointing in those respects.
- Take it easy for a day or two after arrival. Allow your body to acclimatise to its surroundings rather than rushing off to try and climb that hill in the distance right after your hotel check-in
- Keep yourself hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Keep alcohol to very sensible/modest levels due to its natural de-hydrating effects, as they’ll be exacerbated by the heat.
- Avoid very demanding swimming objectives unless you’re fit. Heat can be exhausting and even strong swimmers can sometimes find themselves in trouble if they’ve pushed themselves a little too far in hot conditions. That can be an even more significant
Japan is known for its strong culture, superb restaurants and ultra-modern cities. What most tourists often forget about is that Japan has its fair share of natural wonders to explore as well. One of these happens to be Mount Fuji. With an almost perfect conical shape, Mount Fuji is considered by many to be the most coveted sight to see in the entire country. However, Mt. Fuji is not the only stunning spot to see during a day trip from Tokyo. If you want to capture the true essence of this Japanese icon, then try to spend a few days in the region referred to as Fuji Five Lakes.
Lake Kawaguchiko, Lake Yamanakako, Lake Saiko, Lake Shojiko and Lake Motosuko are situated at the northern base of Mount Fuji and they are collectively called the Fuji Five Lake region. Regardless of which lake you choose to stay near, you will be privileged with beautiful panoramic views of Mount Fuji and the surrounding countryside. This region also makes an excellent base for climbing the mountain.
Of the five lakes, Kawaguchiko tends to be the busiest because it serves as the primary transport hub in the region. Aside
