For the holiday weekend, people are opting to travel to nearby destinations like Georgia and Armenia. Dubai is one of the most popular destinations for tourists from the GCC countries due to the pleasant weather, an abundance of tourist attractions, and lenient travel regulations. The travel agents report that they are getting a lot of reservations. The agencies consequently anticipate higher occupancy for Eid from nearby nations like Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.

1. Staycation Benefits:

For the given month of summer, a staycation sounds like a blessing to us. We skip hours of long travel, planning our days with so much shopping and packing. All that done, we can just lay in bed all day or maybe spend quality time with our family without having to worry about travelling and spending long hours figuring out what to do and eat. To summarize the benefits of Staycation we list down five points.

  1. Saves a lot of time that goes into travelling.
  2. Saves money.
  3. Provides you with a luxurious experience.
  4. Relieves you from the stress of packing for days.
  5. Saves the extra money that might have been spent on vacation shopping!

2. Vacation Benefits:

Vacations provide us with new experiences which we need after a long working period. The constant routine of school or the office makes one’s life quite sedentary. That’s when this vacation feels like a cool breeze. Let’s joint down 5 benefits of vacation.

  1. You get to spend time with nature.
  2. Family time becomes an exploring time with everyone involved in the travel.
  3. Children observe new things outdoors and sometimes pick up new hobbies.
  4. Helps you with your social recharge dose.
  5. Proves to be beneficial for your health as you travel and do activities.

Both aspects have their own type of benefits, and we can’t complain about either. So let’s choose our side! How do you spend your leisure time?
