My Preferred Asian Short-Haul Holiday Destinations

 

Zanzibar
Zanzibar

Until yesterday I thought Zanzibar was the only place I hadn’t visited. I kept it on the side of the heart where only love resides. I dreamt about it. I envisioned myself walking late in the evening, alone, on its sandy beaches.

I fantasied about its turquoise blue waters, its shallow sandbars and its tiny fishing villages.

But that’s before I google Asian travel destinations and found Patong of Thailand.

10 fun activities you didn’t know happen in Kenya

Paragliding in Kenya

When Kenya is sold to the outside world, it comes out as an excellent safari destination. A land of the Maasai people (that’s minus the 42 other tribes); a land of cattle and sheep and goats and men syphoning animal blood with straws, direct into their throats.

A land of great woodlands, sieged with wild animals. A land where you wouldn’t walk for 5 minutes and not meet dik diks, hyenas, antelopes and the Tanzanian cheetah – all walking together in harmony, except when the meat eaters are hungry.

The great advantage of a hotel is that it is a refuge from home life.

A great quote there by George Bernard Shaw. But, while you may be convinced that taking a trip will guarantee some calm from home noises – the meow of cats, the barking of dogs and the squeaking of your 2 year old daughter’s broken bicycle wheels; if you don’t plan well for accommodation, your trip may turn out to be more a flaming hell than home was. Worse, if you make blind bookings only to walk into a hot hotel room without air-conditioning, with old ragged nets, musty beddings, blocked toilets, smelling of cold and mist and draining/peeling wall paints.

Is that what you’d like to escape home to? No? That’s what I thought.
