Lockdown has created a profound desire to reconnect with nature and enjoy outdoor destinations, in addition to a preference to stay as far away as possible from crowded places, like the cities. Nevertheless, with the introduction of the vaccine this fear is slowly going away and an increasing number of people want to add urban destinations to their trip.
In other words, “fusion trips” might be a huge travel trend during 2021 —that is a two-part journey that combines city and nature. Check out the following destinations for a ‘town and out’ holiday that include the best of both worlds.
A perfect destination for art and design lovers, Barcelona is known for its beautiful museums and architecture. About an hour from the city, you can then visit Montseny for a relaxing and quiet stay. If it doesn’t fit you, another fusion trip alternative is to combine Madrid and the Guadarrama mountains, only 70km far from each other.
All the way to Asia, our third fusion trip destination is Hong Kong and Sai Kung. From the incredible central district you can head out to the seaside to enjoy the beach life even if it’s only for a few days.
Two hours from downtown Los Angeles, you can drive all the way to Ojai, a small mountain town not far from the world’s famous surfing Rincon point (a half an hour drive).
Back in the European continent, we find Paris. Although a precious destination by itself, it’s still a city with crowded streets and parks. For that reason, you can stop by the regional nature park Boucles de la Seine Normande to finish up your trip in the nicest way possible.
If these fusion trips are not what you were looking for, explore these glamping destinations around the world for an alternative, unique getaway.
