Enjoy the crisp mountain air if you decide to go for a trekking holiday in one of these fabulous mountain destinations. Not only will you get unpolluted air to breathe for a few days, but also since you are going trekking, your holiday will be filled with activity and movement. No sitting around and eating here. Not only is this great for your body, but the solitude that trekking provides you with, even if you go with friends or your better half, is great for your mental health too as you won't be bombarded with the constant sounds and incessant chattering of people, colleagues, and pressures back home. You can go trekking to Ladakh, Sikkim, and many other Himalayan destinations.
Scuba diving in Thailand
Thailand has a lot of great diving sites like Phuket, Ko Tao, Similian islands and the Surin islands. Infact you can learn scuba diving nearly anywhere in this country and it's a perfect destination for scuba diving experts and learners alike, with a lot of courses for beginners and for those who want to get certified. Another reason to visit Thailand is the food. The method of cooking seafood ensures that the seafood is fresh, and you will end up eating a lot of real food, and green vegetables instead of junk food.
Andaman and Nicobar islands
Not only are they close by, but these nearby islands are packed with activities. Do water sports, swim, snorkel, dive, and eat the abundant fresh seafood and lets not forget, basking in the vitamin D that we get so little off at home. A perfect way to spend a healthy family holiday.
Coconut being the chief ingredient in most Kerelite food, God's own country already has an advantage. Not to mention coastal food, greenery, which will take you away from polluted city air, opportunities galore to escape from the din and the hustle bustle of modern life, and the world famous spas and Ayurveda treatments. If it's rest and relaxation you're looking for, then look no further.
Take your pick from Southern Italy, Spain, or Greece. If you love eating, then this is the place to go, as for the most part you can want all you want and still eat healthy (provided you don't overdo the pizza). The history and the culture accompanied with this visit will ensure that your brain gets as much exercise as your body as you will be walking, walking, and walking, without even feeling it.
