Everybody loves holidays, that goes without saying. The change in surroundings, the very idea of breaking away from your daily routine and leaving it all behind is often enough to make a holiday good enough without even doing anything on it. That said, why settle for less? If you’re already on holiday, you might as well go the extra mile and actually enjoy your time somewhere in a country which you paid a hefty sum for plane tickets to get to. Holidays are nowhere near as common as we would like, whether it’s because you can’t get time off work, or maybe due to budgeting reasons, not everyone can go on holidays as much as they hoped, meaning we have to make do with the little time we do have. When you do actually finally make it to your holiday destination of choice, you’ve already committed, spent a decent amount of money to get there and probably already paid for a hotel or an Airbnb. For some, it might feel like spending on anything else would be suicide. Don’t let that feeling drag you and your holiday spirits down, people spend money on holiday, that’s just the nature of the beast, and at the end of the day, would you rather dip a little bit into your savings or have a mediocre holiday? Without any further ado, let’s look at things which you could splash some cash on during your vacation to whatever part of the world you decide to explore this time, and know that it will be worth it.

If you’re going somewhere considered tropical, there is a pretty big chance that there are some pretty nice diving facilities scattered around. It’s not hard to find them, you just need to take the time to do some minimal research and possibly book a session ahead of time. Scuba diving is not only a relaxing experience, but it’s like something which you might have never experienced if you have not done it before. Allowing you to get up close and personal with the local marine life, whether it’s beautiful shoals of colourful shimmering fish or some beautiful coral reefs with dream-like colour combinations, you will surely not be disappointed.

A luxury cruise
When on holidays, do like the holidayers do, and what better way to let the world know that you are currently enjoying your time off than by sitting around relaxing on a huge and stylish looking boat? That’s right, hard to find one isn’t there? A scenic river cruise from a company like Love It Book It can be one of the best holiday experiences you’ve ever had, and if you just so happen to feel like you need to get back in touch with your lazy sailor side, then this is the perfect opportunity. Sitting around and enjoying the sensation of being on the water is often more than enough to make this part of the holiday more than special. After all, it’s not something you get to experience too much nowadays unless you’re working on a boat yourself. All that on top of being able to watch the beautiful scenery as you go past it on your cruise all combines into an unforgettable package, both relaxing and rich in new experiences. You do not want to sit out on this one.

A day trip
Need to get away from your current holidays for another mini holiday? Are the Pina Coladas proving too much for you? Is the beach chair starting to dig into your back? Well, a day trip away from your current holiday destination might be just the thing you need to temporarily escape from all of that. Many popular holiday destinations have several places slightly out of town which are most definitely worth visiting, and would be a shame to miss out on if you’re already over there. For example, if you happen to visit the beautiful shores of Indonesia and set up camp in Jakarta for your holidays, a trip over to the Thousand Islands might just be the best part of your trip. After all, what’s better than a beautiful sandy beach with blue water? That’s right, over 100 sandy beaches with blue water, all on separate tiny islands within close proximity of one another. Taking a day out to travel between the islands and relaxing on all the beaches one after another is surely an experience like no other, feeling almost surreal at times, and could easily be one of those things which you clearly remember and look back on all your life. Truly a holiday-defining experience.
