‘ON THE GO’ THIS RAMADAN: DUBAI-BASED TRAVEL SHOW HOST AMY KITCHINGMAN DIVULGE HER TOP SUMMER TRAVEL DESTINATIONS WHILE KEEPING FIT AND HEALTHY
Ramadan is soon upon us and many people choose this time to travel. Whether it’s traveling to spend time with family during the religious month, or taking a vacation with friends to get away from the Dubai heat.
Amy Kitchingman, the TV host of Physique TV’s travel show On The Go, have listed a few of her top summer destinations to travel to this summer with helpful tips to stay fit and healthy.
1) Thailand on Top
There are millions of ways to explore Thailand; gastronomy, shopping, wellness, luxury, soft adventure, culture, beauty and fashion, you name it and it is all available.
Thailand is a great destination for both family travel and with friends due to its diversity!
Thailand is not just beautiful beaches but is also rich in culture. Why not head to the North of Thailand where the temperatures are a little cooler in the summer season and see some of the beautiful temples?! Alternatively, why not check out some of the amazing spas and wellness centres Thailand has to offer. A big craze now is fitness bootcamp holidays and Thailand has some of the best. Whether it’s a specific bootcamp for kickboxing or detoxing, or something more general like an overall fitness bootcamp, Thailand has top professionals, destinations and facilities to help you achieve your goals.
Travel Tip. Take advantage of the amazing massages available in Thailand. If you are having an energetic vacation this is the perfect way to relax!
2) Spice it up in Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka is also one of the most exciting destinations, where aside from the stunning nature and hot attractions, people are also very warm and friendly. I was in Sri Lanka a few weeks ago and I was welcomed with arms wide open by the locals whom are really helpful and hospitable.
Sri Lanka is rich in different exciting sports activities such as crickets, surfing, white water rafting, kayaking, diving, snorkelling, cycling as well yoga and meditation. It is also perfect for a quick getaway as it is only 3 hours away from UAE.
Whilst in Sri Lanka, sign up to a surf school during your stay! Surfing is so much fun and Sri Lanka has great waves for all abilities. It’s a great way to tone and burn calories whilst having a lot of fun!
3) Nomadic in New York
You will never run out of things to do in New York. It’s truly a tourist’s paradise. The city has so much to offer and is easy to navigate around. I have been to New York numerous times and have never run out of things to do. One thing I noticed this time on my trip is the bikes dotted around the city available for rent. This is a perfect way to explore Central Park, whilst burning those extra calories needed for that slice of New York cheesecake!
My top tip for exploring New York is to wear comfortable shoes! Whether you’re shopping on 5th Avenue or you’re running down to Midtown to climb the Empire State, it’s a sure thing that you’re going to do a lot of walking so make sure your footwear will enable you to do so!
