This list is in no particular order, so sit back and relax as we go through our personal list of awesome places to visit for a relaxing vacation.
Da Nang, Vietnam
When people think of Asian beaches Thailand seems to top the list, but that’s a crime since Vietnam has similar island beaches but with far less tourism. This means you can set up on a beach with only a few people around and enjoy the silence and calmness without worrying about some noisy tourists ruining it. we have ever heard from serious Asia globetrotters that Da Nang has some of the best and most underrated beaches in Asia. Definitely check out Da Nang if nice, quaint beaches and a sleepy town are your kind of thing.
No list of relaxing vacations would be complete with Budapest, Hungary. One of the most awesome things about Hungary is that they have spring-fed thermal spas that will melt the decision from your aching muscles. Not to mention, when you’re done being pampered, you can check out the historically beautiful buildings replete with stained glass and mosaics that will blow your mind.
Looking for a nice place off the beaten path? Then look no further than the Seychelles, it has everything: beaches, nature over 100 islands, a national park and it’s even home to a rare giant tortoise species. While this place is mostly known for as the spot for honeymoons, you can still find good, inexpensive accommodation deals so you can enjoy a historic paradise without destroying your bank.
Mexico? You’re probably wondering how this place could be relaxing, but you’d be surprised. Mexico has some nice spots to relax in if you’re informed.
Valladolid is a sleepy town that is known for awesome food and a really cool cenote (sinkhole) where you can hang out and relax. It’ll allow you to get a better feel for Mexican culture outside of the big touristy cities and it comes highly recommended that you go to the sinkhole and take in the wondrous sights.
Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
For the nature buffs out there, you really should check out this national park. It’s a lesser known one when compared to Yellowstone, but it boasts some amazingly beautiful sights and is even home to a famous solar eclipse that only happens once every 38 years! If you’re looking to get away from your cellphone with a proper excuse then this is probably going to be your sort of vacation.
