We know staycation. Now, people have invented another term called DAYCATION for a shorter 1-day only escape within the city or nearby destination. While it’s not really a new term, but for Doha’s busy professionals and parents wanting to have a quick relaxation and bonding moment, this could be a new alternative.
The word daycation basically refers to a ‘day out’, a holiday day where you drive off somewhere to relax and enjoy yourself in whatever way you fancy, but you only travel a distance which comfortably allows you to return home to your own bed.
During almost the same time last year, we published a series of staycation ideas for families. For reference, here are the links of our previous posts (but please double check with the hotels as the rates might be different now).
This year, we give you another roundup of hotels with SPECIAL DAY PASS promotions:
