Snow Joke: 10 Winter Sun Locations to Get Away from the Snow by Jon Simpson

As Britain gets battered by blizzards, bringing the country to a halt, discover 10 winter sun destinations where snow probably doesn't exist in the local language, let alone on the weather forecast.

Mexico - with thoughts of swine flu long gone, Mexico is back on the map as winter sun favourite. Cancun is a classic holiday spot, perfectly set up for mass tourism with an abundance of cheap flights from the UK. Sat on the Caribbean coast, there's sea, sand and scuba, but most definitely no snow.

Costa Rica - with dramatic volcanoes, idyllic beaches, tropical rainforests and plenty of eco-credentials, Costa Rica will appeal to those looking for winter sun with extra adventure. The year-round warm weather and the choice of a Pacific or Caribbean coastline makes this Central American country a nature lover's paradise.

Thailand - long popular with backpackers, Thailand caters for all travellers, from families looking for cheap flights to Thailand to luxury spa seekers to honeymooning couples. With countless beaches on the Gulf of Thailand offering deep blue lagoons, swaying palms and a price that won't empty your wallet, Thailand is a solid choice for a snowless winter break.

Florida - bathe in warm seas, kayak through the everglades or visit the state's famous theme parks. Florida remains a massive hit with UK families and is set to win even more interest from the UK this year; a recent Travel Trends Analysis revealed that Orlando, Florida's gateway airport, was ranked the 4th most searched for destination, rising a massive 12 places from last year.

Egypt - the land of the pyramid gets hardly a drop of rain all year, let alone snow and the country still remains good value meaning you get lots of winter sun for you money here. The red sea is a beach and diving hot spot and it's only a five hour flight from London.

Bali - with an equatorial climate, Bali's 'winters' are pretty similar to its summers: hot. Indonesia's most tourist-friendly island, it's known for excellent beaches, divine diving and of course supreme surfing. It's also pretty lively on the nightlife front, making it popular with the backpacking crowd.

Dubai - back in the headlines for being the proud creator of the Burj Dubai, now the world's tallest building, this Emirate enjoys almost year round sunshine, and from November to May the climate is at its best. The bad news is, you will find snow in Dubai - but only at 'Ski Dubai' the indoor snow dome!

Oman - perhaps not an obvious choice, but this Middle Eastern blend of desert, coastal landscape, Portuguese colonial influence, rugged mountains and other natural wonders make Oman a good choice for the more adventurous winter sun seeker.

Canary Islands - the closest winter sun to the UK, this collection of islands off Africa's west coast where rain is rare and winter temperatures hover in the mid-20s, are well known to British travellers. Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Tenerife and Gran Canaria are the most well known of the archipelago, whilst the tiny El Hierro and La Gomera remain less touched by tourism.

Cape Verde - this archipelago off the coast of Senegal is within easy reach of the UK. Famed for white sand beaches, tropical interiors and an exotic mix of African, Portuguese and Brazilian cultures, the ten different islands are still relatively undiscovered by the masses and are only six hours flight from the UK.

Spa in Thai Style by iguidebkk

For many consecutive years Thailand is one of the big winners of numerous spa awards. Thailand's spa industry continues to look healthy and evolve with the changing requirements of spa clientele to a focus not far removed from the ancient purpose of traditional Thai massage and herbal healing techniques. Even with the need to mingle with Western practices, the Thai spa industry's edge is its ancient heritage: the rituals, treatments and massage techniques that have survived down through the ages. It has an authenticity that spas elsewhere in the world look to duplicate and "Thainess" has also become a focal selling point of Thai spas. It is relatively vital to discover why Thai spas with Thainess or in Thai style have contributed to many awards and have also astounded the world!

Thainess refers to both the therapists and the cultural qualities that have made Thailand the spa capital of the Asia-Pacific region as well as a must-have component for spas all over the world. Whilst it can mean different things to different people, when applied to Thai therapists, Thainess seems to encompass ancient healing techniques, folk wisdom in its rituals and, perhaps above all, graciousness. Maintaining wellbeing through an improved balance of the body, mind and spirit and with the environment has become the key protocol for Thailand's award-winning spas and emerging ventures. Thailand is now set as a medical hub featuring traditional and alternative treatments.

Dubbed as the "Land of Healthy Smiles", Thailand affords its health and beauty minded tourists the wonder of the pampering and holistic spa treatments of the body, mind and spirit. The revelation of health and wellness comprises a full-fledged array of world-renowned day spas, destination spas, hotel/resort spas and medical spas to choose from. Spa treatments in Thai style will help you to get in touch with inner you at numerous places across the nation. Rewarding yourself with a Thai spa is certainly a valuable treat that provides an ultimate spa experience. This, without doubt, makes meticulous tourists and recipients always fall in love with Thai spas with Thainess or in Thai style!

A delicate blend of cultural heritages and diversities is the central element that makes Thailand a spa destination in the world. A focus of health and beauty, Thai spas involve the method of relaxation and health promotion both physically and spiritually. They blossoms in Bangkok and major tourist cities countrywide. The Thai spa experience embraces a choice of indigenous resource, unique tradition and local wisdom that have been passed down through centuries. Recognizing the lucrative market niches for spa business, spa operators look into this ancient trove to create and present the best Thai style spas to ensure worldwide spa recipients a lasting spa expectation.

In fact, the spa theory in Thailand is adopted and adapted into traditional Thai style, making its spa treatments a whole lot different from that of offered at leading spa centers in the globe. An imported spa recipe combined with an exotic Thai touch has impressed the world! Spa facilities in Thailand too are of premium and great value for money. A tropical haven boasting natural and cultural richness, Thailand is considered one of the world's most famed holiday getaways. This is a remarkable plus that helps develop the country's basic strength as an eternal spa paradise. In addition, first-class spa products truly open a new notion and familiarity to foreign spa recipients.

Thai spas allow recipients to capture various essences of traditional Thai living. The Thai spa experience is notable as spa practitioners are naturally service-minded and always smiling. Gracious hospitality and quality service are complemented by the caring nature as well as gentle manner of the Thai people, thus enhancing a unique Thai touch to worldwide recognition. Gentleness, compassion and the act of comforting to others, as advocated by the Theravada Buddhist tradition, is very much part of everyday life. The gesture is intuitive and genuine as well. Besides, most of spa venues are designed with typical Thai characteristics intrinsically admired by all foreigners.

Boasting a variety of spa offerings, the Land of Healthy Smiles has devised a vast range of retreats, alternative therapies, personal consultation and life coaching. The common Thai spa menu includes traditional Thai, Swedish, Javanese and Sports massages, foot reflexology, aromatherapy, acupuncture, acupressure, hydrotherapy, skincare treatments like facial scrubs and body wraps, treatments for face, skin and hair, herbal steams and floral baths. The Thai spa experience also comes with body and mind activities - be it meditation, yoga, tai chi, pilates, stress management, holistic wellness, spa cuisine and physiotherapy, along with healthy eating and detoxification.

The Thai wellbeing therapy also makes Thai spas popular globally. Many of the healing techniques, holistic remedies and wellbeing programs are mainly based on the therapeutic power of Thai herbs and plants specially formulated to rebalance, restore and rejuvenate the body, mind and spirit. A variety of other curative treatments meanwhile accentuate meditative practices which reflect deep-rooted Buddhist influences. Significantly, the traditional Thai massage is regarded as an act of compassion in which the therapist performs the physical application of loving kindness and renders a curing touch in the spirit of giving. The traditional Thai massage exerts substantial health benefits.

In a word, the real Thai spas enable spa recipients to fully experience varied facets of Thainess and unique Thai style. Therefore, whilst here in the Land of Healthy Smiles explore yourself as well as indulge your body, mind and inner spirit in Thai spas for an unforgettable spa experience...
