When it comes to summer vacation, a lot of people seem to be a bit “traditional”, which means that they prefer going to a place where they can relax, enjoy the sun and the sea and take in the beautiful scenery and other sights. This is to be expected of course since a summer vacation is time spent away from work and the fast lifestyle of big cities, which is why people want to spend this valuable time as far removed from those sources of stress as possible. This is what counts as a “traditional vacation” and Greece has always been a popular destination for “traditional” vacationers. However, as time goes on values and tastes change.

Nowadays, there are a lot of people that simply don’t settle with spending a few days by the sea as far as their vacation is concerned. They are looking for something else, something more than relaxation. They are looking for luxury. Believe it or not, Greece is a popular destination with so called “luxury tourists” as well. What is luxury tourism though and why is Greece so popular with those tourists?

A new way to spend a summer vacation

A luxury vacation, as you can probably tell, is all about luxury. It’s all about spending your time away from work as luxuriously and as memorably as possible. It’s about staying in lush villas and five-star hotels and spoiling yourself as a reward for a year’s worth of hard work. Up until a few years ago it was thought that luxury vacations where the privilege of the rich and the famous, but not things have changed.

A luxury vacation is a once in a lifetime experience that thousands of people each year choose to partake in.
