Channel your inner Zen with these 5 wellness holidays


If you’re planning a holiday abroad this year then you might have come across the latest trend wellness or holistic tourism.  

Wellness holidays are set to dominate the market in 2017, and it is a global industry that is growing in popularity across Asia.

Designed to rejuvenate your body, detox your mind and restore inner wellbeing, wellness holidays are a great way to indulge in a spot of traditional down time with the added bonus of leaving feeling soothed to the soul.

Depending on what you aim to achieve better health, de-stressing, weight loss and so on  you can now search for the perfectly tailored package through Asia’s newest platform, Om & Away.

Founder of the site, Charlyn explains the motives behind the company.

Clean eating, meditation, surfing, spa sessions – everything you need to feed your soul,” she says. “A Hong Kong shopping trip might be fun for the moment, but it’s not the same thing as coming back with real inner joy. And so I set up Om & Away to help others experience the same inner joy.”
