What is Hobbiday and how does it change tourists' leisure
The tourist season of 2024 is marked by a new trend called Hobbiday - a blend of "hobby" and "vacation" that combines your favorite activity with relaxation. This new trend is gaining increasing popularity.
This is due to the fact that many people are increasingly focused on mental health and are seeking meaningful, personally enriching experiences. As a result, travelers are willing to pay extra for customized itineraries that cater to their interests and preferences, as reported by NewsBytes.
The concept of Hobbiday is simple, as depending on the type of hobby, travelers can choose destinations that offer opportunities for their chosen activities. For example, in the Indian state of Kerala, tourists can participate in yoga, traditional dance, mountaineering, fishing, paragliding, bird watching, hiking, boating, kayaking, and trekking.
At the same time, it is important to plan trips in advance for Hobbiday vacations. After all, tourists need to ensure that the activity they choose is available on the planned travel dates.
In addition, tourists should also take the issue of preparing for this type of vacation seriously. It is necessary to prepare and bring the necessary equipment, gadgets, and hobby equipment in advance or ensure that the service provider will lend or sell them.
Also, at the preparation stage, you need to objectively assess your health. This is critical if your chosen hobby involves physical activity, as changes in climate and food in a new place can affect your physical condition.
When preparing for a Hobbiday trip, you should also read reviews and ratings on the Internet. This will allow you to get the right picture of a fair price. It's also worth researching alternative service providers in the region to help you get an objective picture.
In particular, in India, many hotels are already embracing the hobby trend. For example, The Leela Palaces, The Oberoi, and Pratap Mahal offer cooking classes, baking lessons, and spice market tours. At the same time, you can stargaze at Devi-Ratn, Jaipur, and The Kumaon, Kasar Devi. Mixology lessons are offered at Taj Palace New Delhi. In addition, pottery classes are held at Oberoi Udayvilas, Udaipur, and Fort Alila, Bishangarh.
At the same time, it is worth noting that according to numerous studies, cultivating a hobby is important for mental health. Psychotherapists claim that hobbies help to separate from stressful situations, enable the brain to rest, and avoid burnout. And in combination with a vacation, it creates the prerequisites for a 100% recharge.
