Luxury vacations are meant for pure fun and frolic, and nothing else! The objective is to set aside all the worries and tensions of life and give maximum relaxation to brain and body. Luxury vacations are meant to enjoy the best part of life, from travel to food to stay. The best of places should be visited wherever one goes. It can be a international tourist center 2000 miles away or a resort and a valley which is 60 miles away from your home. Whatever it is, the definition of luxury need not change. For someone from Phillipines going to the Alps is Switzerland is Luxury visit. At the same time from going to a forest ride on the outskirts of Manila is also a luxury trip. It all depends on how much relaxation you give the mind and the body. It may be that the latter trip makes the person happier and mentally relaxed.
The typical itinerary of a luxury trip is something like this. First select the place. It can be a single location or multiple locations. For a luxury trip to have the desired effect, the duration should be at least of 3 days. After selecting the location, finalize the place of stay. It is always better to do this in advance because selecting a hotel after reaching the destination is fraught with risks. The hotel may be full and unnecessary time is wasted searching for a new place. So it is better to freeze the place first. At the next stage, lists down the places to be visited and activities to be done. If is a beach area, then you may want to spend some time wind surfing or plain sunbathing. If it is waterfall and streams on mountains, then some trekking and great bungee jumping, if such facilities are there and as long as it does not scare you. It is better that the activities are also planned in advance, so that any addition or deletion does not affect the tour. Ensure that maximum fun is extracted at each stage. Plan out the return trip in such a way that, the journey back home also has some fun element in it.
When having a luxury trip to multiple places, one can travel in most of the places through train. It is not necessary that a costly mode of transport be used like flight. Train journeys ensure smooth transit albeit a little bit of time extra but the biggest advantage is the reduced cost. To travel across EU, it is not necessary to use flight. The train will carry you across most the EU countries and in a very time saving manner. Save that part of money for a better hotel stay and watching more places and more attractions. In fact train journeys can also be pure fun and a good ingredient of the luxury trip.
