Travelling is most definitely no longer only for students and backpackers. It’s very possible for everyone, from parents with young children to professionals taking a break from their busy lives, to spend some time travelling around some of the best and most beautiful destinations in the world.
There’s a reason why people flock over to the Antipodes. The romance of being so very far away is part of it, I’m sure, as is the beautiful scenery and huge expanses to explore. There are plenty of ways to get around Australia, depending on your budget - from self drive city to city to cross country buses or going by train. However you explore Australia, make sure you visit the iconic cities and sights that we all know from films, books and media. From Uluru to Sydney Opera House, there are amazing sights to be explored.
And with a beach culture that’s completely different to anything in Europe, there are some gorgeous beaches to explore. Most of them are deserted thanks to the sheer size of a country that has a coastline stretching 37,000 km and more than 11,000 beaches.
All of this and a culture that’s familiar enough for you to relax and enjoy your adventure.
If you’re looking for more of a culture shock, then the Far East could be a better choice for your travelling adventure. Whether you have the budget to travel in style with bookings at top hotels along the way, or you’d prefer to do it the old fashioned way and chance the local hostels, Thailand has something for every traveller on every budget.
Cheap flights to Thailand are also pretty easy to find and book online so it’s worth doing some research while planning. Thailand is the perfect gateway to the Far East, with its tourist and traveller friendly atmosphere, exotic culture, gorgeous history and beautiful beaches. All human life is here, as well as golden beaches and extremely friendly locals, just ready and waiting to help you have the best travelling experience possible.
It’s a real paradise - you can dive with sharks in Ko Tao, kiteboard in Hua Hin, visit a health spa in Ko Samui, discover the craziness of Bangkok and the Koh San Road. The flipside of the adventure sports and beaches are the temples and golden Buddhas that can be found everywhere. You can try meditation in Chiang Mai, take part in a religious festival in north east Thailand or visit the cave shrines in Kanchanaburi.
No matter what takes you to Thailand, you are bound to have an adventure that you will always remember.
Of course, Thailand and Australia are by no means the only options for your great travelling adventure - there’s a whole world out there to enjoy!
