Forget Vacation, Go For A Relax-cation!

While a lot of people want their vacations to be adventurous, full of danger and excitement, or some people prefer to go on a backpacking vacation to explore themselves. Yet, some people are too busy in life to be running around in another country, and would much rather live by the pool, with a pile of books, in the glistening sunshine. Many people would much rather this, so here is a little guide to the most relaxing vacation destinations you can try right now.


Budapest, Hungary



While Budapest is one of the grandest of capital cities, rife for adventure, there are plenty of opportunities to relax. There are many spars, which has water flowing from the subterranean springs. But if you are looking for a more cultured way of relaxing, you should go to one of the Art Nouveau Gellért Baths, which boasts stained glass as well as beautiful mosaics.


The Galapagos Islands

While you can venture on Santa Cruz Galapagos cruises, there are so many quiet beaches, as well as the island of Isabela. It’s a nice small town, it is very quiet, but there are plenty of things for you to relax and unwind if you find that you are spending too much time relaxing on the beach! Isabela also has authentic Ecuadorian food, plus lots cater for all types of dietary requirements, from gluten-free, to even vegan. However, if you are not fussy, you may want to just chow down with the seafood! The freshly caught lobster is to die for!





Apart from the beaches, there are some fantastic tranquillity spas, such as the Vilalara Longevity Thalassa and Medical Spa, which is located in a beautiful botanical garden, with fantastic views across the Atlantic. If you are looking for a way to rejuvenate, you can reap the benefits of the natural saltwater in the Thalassa therapy package. In addition to this, there are workshops in mindfulness, methods to reduce stress, as well as yoga, arguably the most restorative technique you can practice.


The Seychelles

If you are looking for somewhere that is going to instantly unwind you in a tropical paradise, you cannot go far wrong with the Seychelles. There is silky soft sand, clear water, as well as restorative sunshine. You may be forgiven for thinking that it is extremely expensive, but you can actually stay in the Seychelles on a small budget. It all depends on what you intend on doing, but if you plan on relaxing, that luckily doesn’t cost that much!


St Lucia



If you’re looking for a spa destination, in 2016 The Bodyholiday Destress was voted the world’s number 4 best destination spa. This spa implements a lot of ancient techniques as well as more modern therapies. In addition to this, you will be guided through tai chi, qi gong, as well as yoga to help de-stress yourself inside and out.


We all want something different out of our vacation destinations, but if you are looking to relax, you should try a few of these places. Not only will your body benefit from the break, but your mind will too!

Chopsticks in Sahara Centre, Sharjah

We love eating out and trying new delicacies from all over as long as our taste buds can take them. We found Chopsticks in Sahara Centre in Sharjah few months ago when it was newly opened in the new extension of the mall.

We were offered 25% off on our entire bill as their promotional offer that time so we decided to give it a try since we love Asian Fusion type of cuisine and they served mainly those kinds of meals.

What I like?
The serving is just right. We can order for 2 and actually can feed around 4 people.
The taste is right; cooked just the way I prefer. The vegetables were not soggy and over cooked and the viand were not overpowering with MSG or sodium.
The serving is perfect. We can actually feed 4 people with all our order.
The quiet ambiance.
I like the courteous and friendly staff.

What I don’t like?
I think, if we weren’t given an discount, I would find their meal price a bit expensive.

The ambiance:
Spacious with lots of red and black decors and motif.  It is a quiet place maybe because we went there around 4 p.m. so it was not crowded at all. Pipe-in music was not too loud and the lighting is ok.

The food selection we ordered:
For appetizer:
Shrimp Blast –

Main Course:
Chicken Fried Rice
Orange Crispy Chicken
Beef Broccoli


The price:
I paid around AED 150++ for the whole entree. I was unable to save the receipt so I couldn’t provide the exact amount but we were given 25% so it was a good deal for us.

The staff:
The staff are all friendly and accommodating. They served with a smile and were happy to provide our requests for extra water, tissue papers and condiments.

My recommendation:

I have to give this a rating of 4/5. You should check this restaurant out. They have a branch in Dubai Mall too.

*I was unable to take some photos to put in this review. I will update this when we dine in Chopsticks again.
