Types of holiday

                              Types of Holiday

      Holiday is an extended period of  recreation,  especially  spent  away
from home or travelling.  A break  from  work  or  a  day  of  festivity  or
recreation when no work is done is also called the same way.
       This means that holiday is a kind of tourist  activity  that  is  not
connected with work or business. Therefore,  to  make  out  which  types  of
tourist activity refer to holiday one should exclude all kinds  of  business
travelling and then it’s quite possible  to  compose  a  list  of  types  of
holiday according to different criteria.
      Such criteria might be duration of holiday, its  geography,  tourists’
mobility, their age, transportation, seasons, value for money, etc.
      But the main criterion is the aim of holiday.  Different  people  take
holidays on various purposes.  Some  go  hunting,  others  prefer  to  climb
mountains. A lot of people have holidays relative to sport activities,  such
as hiking, cycling, horse-back riding,  rowing  and  canoeing,  as  well  as
scuba-diving or even  bungee  jumping.  There  are  also  such  purposes  as
recreation, treatment and medical care.  In  this  case  people  can  choose
resort or a spa. Tourism for recreation is very popular in our  region.  The
local nature is perfectly suitable not  only  for  treatment  but  also  for
various kinds of adventure holiday. Today  a  great  attention  is  paid  to
ecological tourism and Krasnodar territory is the very place to  develop  it
      I think shop-tourism and business travelling cannot be  added  to  the
list of types of holiday, for they are related to work.
      No less important criterion in this classification is  how  a  holiday
can be organized. It may be done with the  help  of  some  travel  agencies,
tour operator companies, or one can organise  his  rest  himself,  that  is,
self-catering type of holiday takes place here.
      One of the tourist activities is studying. I’m not sure  if  it  is  a
type of holiday, but one should not forget that for some people studying  is
more  recreating  and  relaxing  than  for  example  hunting   or   climbing
      Nowadays there are many kinds of work and each of  them  requires  its
own type of holiday.   So  the  number  of  types  of  holiday  is  steadily
