Who doesn’t love staycations? A portmanteau of two words close to our hearts — ‘staycation’ means taking a quick relaxing vacation somewhere that would make us feel right at home.
In many ways, travelling often leads to positive benefits. It is usually observed that taking trips results to healthier well-being of a person. People are often forced to engage in more physical activities than they usually do when travelling, like walking to go around all the tourist’s spots in Thailand. Taking trips also releases endorphins or what is called as the feel-good neurotransmitters.
Staycation presents the idea of taking a vacation without leaving the country. It can be thought of as a compact trip wherein you plan a week’s load of exciting itinerary just for the weekend.
Working for five days in the city (like that of Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Pattaya and the rest), can leave a daunting weight on the physical and mental welfare of a person. Add in the constant struggle to avoid pollution (or at least some of it) while working in the city and you have the perfect reason to plan for a staycation.
Though, it is surprising to know that there are still people who haven’t done staycation with the belief that travels can’t be done somewhere near your house. Trust us! Once you get a head-start on it, you will fill your weekend with staycation trips around Thailand. After all, staycations do not require to go far.

Out of office
This is the golden rule of staycations: do not work! Any form of work should be prohibited. A simple reply to the email you got? Not allowed! Taking calls from clients? Just leave a voicemail.

If you answered no to any of these questions, it is high time to plan that local expedition. Chances are, you will be surprised that you still have a lot to learn about your country.
