No matter what kind of traveller you are, these four getaway styles will be sure to give you a serious case of wanderlust.

Planning for your next getaway with your group of girlfriends, and not sure which destination will suit all of your tastes and preferences? Here are four different getaways styles that will be sure to whet each and every one of your travel appetites.

For thrill-seekers
There’s just something about getting out of the office and breaking free from those confines into the great unknown.

Experience the exhilaration of diving a sunken shipwreck or getting up close to the one of the rarest fish in the world, the whale shark, at one of the best diving spots in the world at Cebu, Phillippines.

If you’re not a water baby, check out the Minneriya-Giritale National Park in Colombo, Sri Lanka, where you can experience wildlife in its natural environment. If you’re lucky, you may even cross paths with a leopard. Alternatively, explore the ancient city of Sigiriya, a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you get to visit a palace with gardens and reservoirs, and you’re literally surrounded by remains of an ancient rock fortress, not unlike Lara Croft.

For the laid-back lass
All you want to do is chill and hang out? Well, the miles of coastline in Phuket offer plenty of options for you to rest and relax.

There is no need for a packed itinerary down to the minute, just head to Krabi where you can indulge in a full day of spa treats whilst enjoying the lush greenery and warm tropical climate. Simply whip out your shades, arm yourself with a good book, slap on a generous dollop of sunscreen and you’re good to go. When night falls, lounge around on the beach in pavilions and hammocks while sipping on cocktails.

There’s nothing like a trip like that to help you unwind and get all the stress out of you.


For bargain-hunters
If you can’t get enough of the adrenaline rush that you get when haggling your way to a great bargain, this is the perfect type of holiday for you.

Experience the thrill and delight of bargain-shopping in Bangkok when you go from street market to street market. Blow your baht on the extensive variety of things to buy – from apparel to homeware to even art pieces, the sky is the limit when it comes to Asia’s shopping paradise.

You won’t want to miss out on regional sale seasons that sweep through neighbouring cities like Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and Jakarta. The Hong Kong summer sale season from July to August is known for it’s great discounts on designer labels while the Mega Sale Carnival in Kuala Lumpur from July 24 to September 15 offers fabulous bargains for all. The low prices at Jakarta’s Great Sale Festival, that lasts till July 14 will also be the perfect excuse for you to keep shopping to your heart’s content.

For zen-masters
The hustle and bustle of city life may sometimes be too overwhelming, and your sanity hinges on regular doses of serenity, far away from the madding crowd.  

Take a trip to Penang, where the old world charm of George Town will feed your soul. Explore the nook and crannies in the quaint town and indulge in the familiar smells and tastes of the authentic cuisines that reflect the heritage of the region.

Reinvigorate your senses with the serene setting of Fort Cochin in Kochi, Kerala.  Go back in time and escape into the city’s rustic charm by exploring the canal backwaters by boat where you can relax, recharge and enjoy the simple things in life.
