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 in.
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 mountains.
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 growing.
