We will cover these 15 types of travel in this blog. The reason we cover these travel types and what we want to say through these is this. These are 15 FUN types of travel, or these are 15 reasons which can make your travelling fun, exciting, adventurous, happy and healthy. Look at these 15 travel types which you should not miss. Down below we will explain the reasons why these are fun and why go for these and what are these travelling types exactly.
Why do you need these types of travel and specifically these fun and exciting travel types of reasons? When travelling is something we all do then why actually we want to show you types and reasons for which you should go travelling?
The first reason is to give these types to those who travel, the travel or travelling they do often misses the fun part. It does not bring all the benefits which travelling usually brings. It is for those who often travel but miss the fun part.
The other reason is to show these enjoyable, fun and not to miss types of travel especially to those who often miss the whole travelling and therefore are not able to experience it at all. We list out these types of travelling to motivate them to go for travel and take time for it. It actually makes it easy and exciting for them to select one of these exciting travelling types and reasons and never miss travelling and its fun & benefits.
There are so many ways and types in which you can travel. These travel ways are fun. They also bring many benefits from health to enriching awareness, perspective, education & learning and improving many soft skills.
But not every type of travel can give you all or some of the benefits. This then brings us to the few types of travel which are enjoyable, fun, full of experience and health, happiness and life.
When you keep moving then you keep your body and mind healthy and in shape. And with travel you can do that. Creative people take inspiration for new things by going to new and different places. It maintains their creativity and for others, travel can boost creativity and thinking.

If you have not yet travelled or are not a traveler as such or probably you are just dreaming to go somewhere but haven't yet gathered much courage to do so, then start as soon as possible. Because of the reason we mentioned in the first paragraph. But more importantly for the reasons why you should travel we are going to give you here, and for all the different types of travel or different occasions you can select to go for a travel or a long planned holiday.
This is exactly what we will discuss and talk about in this blog. We will give you few types of travel to motivate you to travel. Then travel types are those which also become strong reasons to make you go travel and tourism. These are different reasons and types of travel which may also connect with your nature or your needs, and therefore will excite you and drive you to pack your bags now and go travel.

It also brings A Change from daily schedule, dull routine, monotonous life, negativity, and more. And so, everyone should travel, not just at least once, but often and as and when we get an opportunity to do so. And here we look to create some wonderful opportunities to travel.
You know a change of perspective can sometimes change the whole situation and its outcome too. Sometimes all you need is to look at things in a different way. How does that happen? A change of place is definitely one of the powerful actions that can bring a change in perspective. Travel is one such activity which gives you that and much more.
There are times when you feel life got stuck and things are not moving forward, or there are may be too many things wanting your attention to move forward, there were not so positive instances that recently happened with your life, and so on. When you do someplace else, it is not just a change of place, it is complete change of surroundings, although for a short period. But it will have a tremendous positive affect on you, and for a longer period of time. Try it, your thoughts will completely change, for positive and for better. That is one of the strongest reasons why we need to travel often. Life is about moving and not stagnancy.
One very good reason why travel is so important in our lives is that it is very good for your mental and physical health and well-being. It is like a natural medicine for your body, health, mind, and for positive thinking and also bring about more creativity and clarity in your thoughts. It is a great way to reinvent yourself.
Life is never about stagnancy in any form, life is not about being stuck at one place either physically or mentally. Life is about living to the fullest, is about experiencing more while you can. Life is about living your life to the fullest and finding opportunities in every possible ways to do so.
Travel is always important and beneficial, even if it is like a daily routine work travel. But it can bring many more benefits as mentioned above. These benefits come from when we do travelling purposely and mindfully. Travelling for our own fun, enjoyment, recreation, and to do things which bring all these, is called tourism, and this is when travel becomes all the more important. And this is the most important type of travel.
This is because it is the aspect and purpose of tourism that is important in travel and this provides us with all the benefits and rejuvenation that are so important for our mental and physical health and well being, and to make us live and truly enjoy our lives fully and freely.
There is another aspect and importance of tourism i.e. travelling for tourism purposes. Tourism is a very wide, vast industry and also a very important economic activity. Tourism helps countries in economic growth & development; social growth & progress; employment generation; and in bringing lot socio-economic advantages. Read about the 5 reasons for importance of tourism here.
We always need a reason to do anything. And how we do it becomes the type, way or method. Same with travel.
But both reasons and types of travel are much more important here. Reasons define and distinguish travelling from the types of travel. Reasons create the types, and also types give you reasons. And then together, the reasons and types of travel add value, happiness, health and all the benefits and importance to travel.
Travelling is an act. It is an act of moving from one place to another. In that way we keep travelling for various reasons.
There are and will always be reasons we keep travelling. These are not the reasons that make tourism and these are not the reasons that make travelling fun and beneficial. Reasons which are not planned and not intentionally created and decided upon do not make tourism. If travelling is just a means while the reasons and objectives are different then it is not tourism and is not fun and enjoyment.
This is when you travel to a new city or country for a shorter or a longer period of time for your career or studies. It may be a study tour or a study abroad option which you take while you are studying. It could be going for internship or an overseas job placement. You could go to a different country or city while on a job when there is, let us say, a transfer or an assignment or project or may be an offshore client project.
Traveling for business is quite common now. Here we mainly include travelling to conduct, market or promote, or for growth of your business. This type could at some place overlap with travelling for job. A business person would travel to different cities or countries for reasons like:
This is what comes under and is called as medical tourism or travel. People often travel to different countries or cities to get different medical treatments. The reasons for medical tourism could be lack of proper facilities in your own country or city, to avail and being able to afford better facilities, go for cost friendly treatments in other countries or cities, etc. This is a growing type of travel and tourism segment.
Many of us have friends, relatives or family members staying in other cities or countries. And you often find time to meet them or there are always occasions or festivals when a family reunion or friends get together is planned. This then requires travelling to those countries and cities to meet them. This is personal reasons but we may often miss the travel part here.
For example if there is some wedding ceremony in your family after a long time. So when you go there, you are too excited first, for the wedding and second with the thought and opportunity to meet all and so many of your family members, relatives and friends. In this excitement experiencing the travel will certainly miss a place in your To Do list. And it happens. How are you supposed to take time and even think about travelling and experience the local places when you to attend so many functions, when there are so many people you need to be with and spend time with? So, what happens is that you do not even realize in all the happiness and excitement and you are even back home from that ceremony still wondering how the days flew by and wishing you would have spent little more time there to be with them for a little longer. Because you know, in our busy lives we forget to make time to actually get out of our hectic schedule and routines and think about travelling.
Because of what usually happens while travelling for the above mentioned reasons, we all strongly need to find our reasons to travel where we can truly enjoy and benefit from travelling the way we want to. These are our own personal reasons to travel.
All or at least most of the above reasons that make you travel to a different place are not actually reasons to travel. Each of those are some tasks or things which you need to do and for that travelling just becomes a means. Travel is not the actual objective. Except for the reason when it is about family and friends, in which case a reunion or gathering might just be because you want to travel, together.
The personal reasons are the ones where you actually want to travel and travelling or going to a place therefore is for your choice and for your own fulfilment. It is something that you want for yourself. And it would not be wrong here to say that you are selfish and it is perfectly alright to want to be happy, to enjoy, to experience. And you don't have to travel alone only to experience all that.
Personal reasons to travel and choosing to go for travel is something which you need to do more often and the most. The list of types of travel which we are mentioning below are more about giving you some unique personal reasons to make time for travel.
This is why we want to show you the exciting types of travel you should think about.
Mostly people say travel and tourism and refer to each of the terms as same or synonym. However, there is a difference between the two. As you would have got some hint when we discussed reasons that make us travel above, and those which are not travel oriented reasons. We mentioned here while defining tourism that it is a purposeful travelling.
So, what actually separates tourism from JUST travelling?
Again, reasons and types of travelling is what separates travelling from just travelling. This is what makes travel more meaningful and purposeful and is also therefore referred to as tourism.
There are many types of tourism. These are reasons making people go for tourism. Hence, these are the reasons to travel and also the various general, common and popular types of travel. We mention below some popular types of tourism. These are definitely few reasons and types for travelling. But not all tourism types are purely travel oriented.
The types of travel (and some of tourism) are various ways to experience and enjoy different things which are made possible by travel.
The tourism reasons mentioned above are mostly planned reasons. However, we want to finally bring you and this discussion to those reasons and decisions which we create and make ONLY for travelling and ONLY to enjoy travelling and all the aspects associated with that travel. These are planned reasons which we create and for which we decide to travel for ourselves. These are for our own reasons, for our own benefits and pleasures. These are reasons and objectives which make you travel and not use travel as a means. These are reasons or needs which you fulfill only by travel. These are reasons or types of travel which make you enjoy travelling itself.
This is THE type of travel where you travel for your own pleasure, enlightenment, and also just for the love of travelling.
This is specifically the Leisure type of tourism and recreational type of tourism (mentioned above).
The difference between travelling and travelling for reasons is like the difference between eating all the time and whenever you like vs. eating right food and in the right way and time to fulfill a particular need of your body or to keep your body healthy and fit.
We should find ways to travel for happiness. We could travel to escape to find moments of happiness, enjoyment and to cherish moments of togetherness with our loved ones. That is when we will cherish and enjoy travelling. That is the most important reason as we make a decision to go for travel.
These types of travel are one of the few reasons to make you travel. These are our ways to encourage you to travel by doing three things for you:
Make you aware of and give you ways to use the more common reasons & types of travel.
Add few unique ways or ways, which we often forget in our busy day to day lives, which you can use to add happiness and fun in your lives.
Motivate you to find your own reasons and types of travel.
Our purpose of giving you such a unique list of different types (or reasons) to travel is to give you these wonderful reasons why you should travel. We want to first encourage you to find time from you busy schedules for travelling. Secondly, we want to show you that you can always find reasons to make yourself and your loved ones happy and enrich your lives by travelling. More importantly we want to motivate you to find and create your unique reasons for travelling and to make you enjoy more and fully experience and live your precious travel moments.
So, let us just look at all the ways and reasons for which you can travel, let us explore all the wonderful types of travel which you can have, if you have already not been creative in finding those and more.
This is the type of travel especially for those who love the road and all what comes with it. There are people who love to hit the road in their cars or on their bikes and just go. A long bike ride is more fun and preferred one. The destination here is not that important as the journey is. The travel is often to nearby places but can also be for far off places. It is entirely up to the person how far he or she wants to go and how much they want to enjoy each of their journeys.
This type of travel is about experiencing summers in different places. So you might plan for a travel to somewhere particularly at the time when it is summer at that place. You go to places to experience summer seasons there and could also be to avoid winters at your home place.
Here it could be just the opposite of summers travel. You are in love with the winter season. You love snow, extreme winters and that cold breeze hitting your face. There are places which get filled with snow which you may not experience at your place all the time. So for this you travel to different places. There are various winter sports like skiing, ski jumping, ice skating, snowboarding, etc., for which you would like to travel. Or you just cannot miss the snow covered mountains of some places and you love to explore all of those.
This would not be just about medical tourism and about getting some treatment. You can choose to go to a quiet and peaceful place to spend some time because your mind and your body needs it. You may choose certain time of each year and go to same or different places. You could go to just be alone with yourself or even take your family and use that time for some meditation or yoga or any other such healthy activity.
Are you some sort of collector? Do you have a hobby to collect things which represent different places, cultures or history? If yes, then this is the type of travel you take.
There are people who travel just to enjoy and capture moments. Yes, if you can have it then you may just travel to take pictures of yourself or your family and friends at different places and so you travel to new and sort of unexplored places to take back memories and well to also share with friends and followers on social media.
Oh yes, you so much in love with travel. Travelling is your passion and derive meaning from it. You want to see place, take new experiences, meet new people. You were born a traveler and that is what you are at the core. May be you have developed that passion of yours into a career too, like there are many people who just travel and then share their experience through their blogs and all. And well, if travel is what you feel you are in love with and you haven't yet explored it fully then let me tell you that you could create that into a career too and live your passion whole your life.
Oh yes, you just have to travel and go places from time to time. It's like in your DNA. You cannot be confined to one place for long. Every now and then you need to go somewhere a little far, even if that means doing not much there. It is like your large appetite for travel which you need to satisfy regularly. You would not feel yourself unless you know you recently have been to some place or you have a plan to go to a place or destination.
You are often on a business trip or you know that you have a planned trip ahead, and then you plan to take time off your work to go for travelling the local and nearby places. This could be a wonderful way to get back feeling refreshed having completed your work with enthusiasm and are ready for more with double the energy.
You should do this more often. It could be a great way not just to travel but to strengthen your friendship and the bond between you and your friends. Experiencing new things, new situations together with people you are already close with is a great way to further strengthen your relationship or friendship. You may be surprised to find out a thing or two about your friend or even about yourself in relevance to your relation that you did not know till now.
There are people who love road travel or journeys more than any other means of travelling. Even if it is a long and interconnected journey or travel, it must include a long road trip. May be this gives you a better sense of control and opportunity to enjoy the journey more than your destination. You want to experience all that you come across while you travel. You like to stop every now and then to feel connected with the place, surroundings and people. You want go through towns or villages, talk to people, enjoy local flavor, local food, etc.
You love water. You are a human but like a fish. So you either love travel by water or love to do things related to water, travel by water being one of them. You love seas, ocean, rivers, lakes and you may love water sports. So you want to travel to places to experience the things related to water.
Are you the one who is looking to settle in a new city or new country? Why not take this as an opportunity to travel to different (as many I would say) countries and cities before you finalize to settle down in one. Well, one advantage it will bring is to widen your number of choices and leave you wiser for your final choice.
Travel is always the best thing to do when you want to take a break from anything. You may be into whatever like studies, job, business, homemaker, or may be in the stage of preparing to be someone from among these or preparing for anything else. Doing something non-stop for a prolonged period of time does affect your performance. It is necessary to take a break from that thing and for a period of time, even brief, not think of your daily tasks. So for these periods when you need a break and you should think of taking it, just go for a short travel trip somewhere. You could go to some place you know, and even better would be to go to a new place, it will be more refreshing.
Taking a break from things that we just mentioned above means taking yourself away for a short period of time and coming back to it after that. But there could be times when you just want to escape from something. Not in a negative way of escaping like getting away from your responsibilities or things like that. But often times, things happen which you cannot just avoid or change within a short period of time. They will take their own sweet time to change or improve. So best thing is to take your mind off them. Then there are times when you need to get a little away from people for a brief period for better or for retrospection. Travel could be the best way here.
