While home is arguably the best place to hang up your hat after a busy day, this is certainly not the case when it comes to hanging a hammock.
The latest global leisure trend, hammocking, is defined as the act of setting up your hammock anywhere in the world with a friend or two and simply hanging out, napping, relaxing, and swinging together. Here are top hammock spots that Flight Centre thinks we all should enjoy: 1) Ang Thong National Park, Thailand
White sandy beaches meet rainforest within this group of 42 small, tropical islands.
This is one of those destinations you want to explore over a couple of days, after all, who wants to rush a trip to paradise. In addition to vegging in your hammock you can also snorkel among the coral reef, swim and suntan in your own pristine bay or do a spot of birdwatching in the lush, green rainforest.
2) Miller’s Point Resort, Simon’s Town, South Africa
Encompassing more than 10 521 hectares the park is dotted with gorges, cascades, waterfalls, streams and huge canopied areas of towering hard wood trees, the perfect place to set up a hammock and enjoy the hum of the light breeze and the soothing sound of trickling water.
Set in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, the Cairngorms is understandably a literal hammocking haven.
From its remote and rugged high mountains, to the aromatic heather moorlands and harsh peatlands, to magnificent forests, quaint farms and crofts, and winding wetlands, rivers and flood plains, it provides a virtual kaleidoscope of scenic hammocking spots. The park is also home to some of the most unusual and endangered animal species in the UK.
5) Iles Aux Cerfs, Mauritius
