Reasons to Spend a Staycation in Bangkok – Why Your Holiday Should Be Close to Home

Reasons to Spend a Staycation in Bangkok – Why Your Holiday Should Be Close to Home


Bringing Revenue to the Local Economy

Originally, a staycation was making a holiday out of staying at home with the whole focus on saving money. The word and the practice were born of necessity during the 2008 economic crisis. But over time it has become something that is lauded as bringing revenue to the local economy, especially when people living here consider co living in Bangkok as a way to appreciate the local places of note and things to visit in a light that the didn't before. A renewed appreciation of the magic closer to home is good for the holidaymakers and good for the local economy.


Taking Time to Relax

Staycations are easy to plan and are made on the sole focus of ensuring that you have a relaxing time. While vacations can often deal with a lot of travelling that not only costs money but the more valuable commodity of time, a staycation gets rid of all that. You will find that all the anxiety that comes from planning a trip, packing and going there will all completely disappear, and you will have more time to just enjoy your holiday.


The COVID Equation

Now, especially more than ever having a staycation seems ideal as you cannot cross borders for the time being but that does not mean that you don't get to take some quality time off for yourself and your family. Share spaces the likes of Lyf Sukhumvit 8 Bangkok offer co-living spaces and high-quality rooms where you can enjoy both your privacy and quality time with friends. You could even organise company retreats in places like this that stick to the high health and hygiene standards required, ensuring that you are safe and sound whilst planning your next big creative breakthrough. You are guaranteed high-speed wifi, mobile access cards and 24-hour security details.


How to Have the Perfect Staycation

To get the most out of your staycation, consider giving your electronic devices a break. Checking emails and going on Facebook has become such an integral part of our lives that we no longer realise how much precious time we are wasting online. Switch off your electronic devices and find another way to entertain yourself. You will be surprised how easy it will be.
When you are packing make sure you only take the basics. Share spaces and hotels will provide all the toiletries, so you don't have to carry a huge load. If you are feeling adventurously minimalistic, pack in your favourite pyjamas and call it a day.
Don't plan an itinerary, unless you have to. The purpose of a staycation is to give yourself a holiday. Not make you all the more tired.


Extra Ideas to Make it a Grand Holiday

If you do decide to come out into the city of Bangkok, try to visit places that you don't usually go to or have been overlooked by tourists and locals alike. Or you could adopt the point of view of a tourist and explore your city from the perspective of never having seen it before.
