Camping hammocks are becoming more and more popular with travellers these days. Not only are they much easier to pack and carry than tents, but they also tend to be a lot cheaper. These are two of the primary concerns campers tend to have, so having a good hammock helps to ease both of these. However, it can all go drastically wrong for you if you don’t do your research and go away with a poor quality hammock- not only will you be sleeping uncomfortably for days on end, but you may even have to cut your trip short. 

So what do you need to look out for in a high quality hammock? And what one should you choose? Don’t worry, we’re here with everything you need to know about the best camping hammocks. 

If you’re looking for the best camping hammock for an upcoming trip, it should come as no surprise that comfort is one of the most important features you should be looking out for. There’s little point in shelling out all your money for a hammock which won’t even give you a relaxing nights sleep, so make sure you do enough research into what hammocks are the most comfortable. Read plenty of online reviews for different hammocks, and ask around any of your friends or family who’ve purchased a hammock in the past. The best way to find a comfortable hammock is by listening to the advice of people who have slept in them before, unless you’re able to have a test lie in a hammock in-store or something of the sort. 

It’s not all about comfort though; you need to think about how durable your new hammock will be. As you’ll be trekking around and sleeping in all different weather conditions, you’ll need to be able to rely on it come the worst. Even the smallest of rips can turn to huge holes in no time, which will only lead to you having to buy a new hammock. Again, doing your research and reading reviews will help you work out which are the most durable, and you can make an informed decision based on this.

You should also consider the price of the hammock you are buying. As it goes with a lot of other products, sometimes a price can be inflamed simply due to a big brand name being on the hammock. This higher price may not be reflective of the actual quality of the hammock, however, and you need to be careful. You might be able to get a sleeping area for a lot cheaper with more quality, so it’s up to you to make sure you choose wisely.

Indonesia: Free visas to attract Indians

New Delhi: Indonesia decided to grant free visas to Indians to attract more travelers from India which is a “big market” for them.

Vinsensius Jemadu, Indonesia’s tourism director, was in India to promote Indonesian tourism and attract more Indians. He says Indonesia and India enjoy very good relations which will help in attracting more tourists. Indonesia is also participating in the South Asian Tourism and Travel Expo (SATTE) 2016.

Jemadu said that more than 10 million people from across the globe visit Indonesia every year but only 270,000 from India. The country attracts the highest number of tourists from Singapore, followed by Malaysia, Australia, China, Japan, South Korea and then India.

“Realising that India is a big market, the Indonesian government decided to grant free visas to Indians. We have set a target to attract 350,000 tourists from India this year, which is a big challenge for us,” he said. “Most of the people from India visit Bali. Maybe it is because they do not know about other places there. We want them to explore other places of the country as well,” he said.

Indonesia’s tourism industry contributes nine percent to the country’s GDP. “Our plans are to boost tourism industry and increase it to 15 percent of the GDP by the end of 2019.”

“As many as 60 percent of the total tourists visit Indonesia because of its rich cultural heritage while 35 percent come to the country to see its natural beauty. Five percent tourists come here to enjoy manmade activities,” Jemadu said.

Expressing concern over the lack of direct connectivity between India and Indonesia, Jemadu said: “So far there is no direct flight between the two countries. People from India reach Indonesia via Singapore or Malaysia which is not good for tourism because people have to spend more time and money in travelling.”

He, however, added that this issue will be sorted out soon as both the governments have agreed to start the direct flight between the two nations.

“I am hopeful that the direct flight between Mumbai and Bali will start by March or April. Garuda Indonesian airline had agreed to operate flights between the two countries,” he said.(IANS)
