Due to the covid pandemic, most of the world population now agrees that health is the real wealth. People have started accepting home-cooked meals and a curb on carbs and junk food. Moreover, the uncertainties with the covid-19, online fitness training, meditation, and yoga classes during the lockdown have made people more health-conscious. Many countries are relaxing restriction norms and slowly opening their borders. The travel industry is wooing tourists with wellness themed packages.

You get to stay close to nature, breathe fresh air, and become healthy from within. Let us check a few of the immunity-boosting wellness trips across the world.
