Have you ever felt like you needed a break from work?

If you’ve ever felt like this, my friend, then you need to know that you’re not alone.

More often than not, most normal-and-routine-job workers look for this perfect me-time too. But would you believe it if I told you what most of them do to achieve this? Well, they pack their bags, hit the road, and find a relaxing destination to spend their holiday. 

But where are those places they go? You may wonder. Americas, Asia, Europe, Africa, or Australia? Well, their choices of destinations are quite limitless, as there are so many laid-back destinations out there to be explored. Feel free to find them out below.

The Maldives
What better way is there to relax and get refreshed than through a spa? And what better spa destination is there than the Maldives? If you’re looking to beat the stress, get your body muscles massaged, and enjoy the best of pampering that life has to offer, then the Maldives should be your go-to destination. Crowned by the Word Spa Awards as the top spa destination in the world, the Maldives has been receiving lots of guests for many years now. Comprised of coral atolls in the aquamarine waters of the Indian Ocean, the Maldives is home to hundreds of tropical islands, each more with at least a spectacular feature than the last. From the Kuramathi Maldives to the Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives, this is a luxury destination that offers spa sessions based on traditional Asian therapies.

By the way, if you want to book a cheap flight to the Maldives, and also enjoy affordable spa sessions at any of its resorts, you should look to place your bookings on Traveligo. The site is renowned for securing affordable flight, tour, and accommodation deals for travelers.

Tulum, Mexico
Another exciting destination that receives lots of tourists and guests every year is Tulum, Mexico. With one of its major attractions known as Paradise Beach, it’s little wonder that Tulum on Mexico’s Caribbean Coast makes our list of world’s most relaxing destinations. 

As a secluded, palm-fringed expanse of white sands, Tulum presents you with an opportunity to enjoy the relatively quiet and relaxed atmosphere it offers, while also offering you a chance to take part in other exciting activities such as swimming and snorkeling. Before or after your chills and relaxation, you can also enjoy the best of Mexican cuisines at any of the Mexican bars and restaurants along the beaches.

Langkawi, Malaysia
Perhaps you’re a lover of nature and would like to spend your relaxation holiday close to the heart of nature. If so, you should check out Langkawi! 

Renowned for its intriguing limestone cliffs, lush greenery, and breathtaking natural geological formations, Langkawi has been attracting lots of laid-back tourists for many years. And despite the huge number of people trooping into Langkawi, it is still a great place unwind.

Furthermore, Langkawi is also Southeast Asia’s premier goepark, jampacked with biodiversity you’d never find elsewhere. 

Ubud, Bali
Little wonder why popular writer Elizabeth Gilbert chose Bali to round out her famous Eat, Pray, Love Journey. Bali has rightfully earned the title of the “most relaxing destination on earth.” There are a few places on earth that can delicately balance relative modernity and quality infrastructure with quiet, peace, and natural beauty. Beside the beauties, Bali also boasts some of the very best high-end accommodations, spas and retreats perfect for some introspection and soul-searching. 

Casa Palopo, Guatemala
Guatemala certainly has no shortage of impressive natural wonders, and Lago de Atitlán, or Lake Atitlan, is certainly high on its list. This mesmerizing volcanic caldera is known for its highland setting and charming lakeside villages. A wonderful destination in which to savor its highland lake location is the charming Casa Palopó which offers sweeping views of Lake Atitlan and its majestic volcanoes from a hilltop, lakeside location. Its individually designed, Mayan-inspired rooms are ideal for guests seeking a relaxing escape, and are complemented by a casual restaurant, an infinity pool and a serene terrace, all of which afford stunning panoramas of the lake.

Galle, Sri Lanka
The city of Galle on Sri Lanka's southwest coast is perfect for the traveler looking for a little luxury and a spot of relaxation. One of Asia’s most perfectly preserved period pieces, colonial Galle Fort dates back to the city's period of rule under the Dutch, who seized Galle from the Portuguese in 1640 and spent the next 150 years embellishing and fortifying the town. Their work remains apparent in the streets of low-slung colonial villas, many of which now house delightful boutiques, making the town a wonderful destination for shopping and leisurely strolls.
