  • Backpacking, depending on where it was and what there was to see but I think that a good nature vacation if it's planned out right can beat a five star hotel any day because it's an experience and maybe so is a luxury hotel but you can't buy nature

  • Backpacking is more my style, even if money were no object.

    I think the luxury hotel would be my choice in Singapore, Abu Dhabi, St. Petersburg (Russia) or Dubai, though.

  • Back packing was pretty much how I grew up. Back then we called it camping.

    • Awwww, that's too bad. πŸ™ We may have our aches and pains, but we must keep active! "A body in motion stays in motion. A body at rest tends to stay at rest", as they say. Hopefully things won't always be that bad going into the future. All the best to you! πŸ™‚

  • Backpacking for me, the amount of experience you will gain, the different people you will meet, the adventure, you are part of the journey.

    While staying in luxury hotel sounds cool, but it doesn't taste the same as walking through the country

  • Backpacking! 😍 I LOVE nature. It is still my goal to hike all 2,200 miles/5-6 months of the Appalachian Trail. I was set to hike it in 2012, but unfortunately, I had to pull out at the last minute due to unforeseen circumstances. But nature is where I feel truly at home and one with my surroundings. It speaks to my soul. πŸ’™ I'd rather be in sleeping bag in a tent under the stars than stay at a luxury hotel. Backpacking all the way!

  • I enjoy backpacking but, as I get older, my body is showing signs (arthritis and just not having the energy I used to) - so I would probably have to say hotel. But - I also am cheap and don't like to spend a lot of money on that sort of thing. So - to pick one - BACKPACKING for the win!

  • I love to do both, I love the nature and privacy when I go backpacking and with friends there it makes it extremely fun but at the same time I do love staying at luxury hotels too, most of my vacations were at luxury hotels rather than backpacking and camping because there weren't many options to do that but lots of hotels... So if I had to choose, I would rather relax at a luxury hotel...

  • I use a hotel to sleep there. When I sleep, my eyes are closed, and I don't see or use all the extras I paid for. However, some lodges and low budget accommodations are out of question to me: those with lice or rats, and stuff.

  • They are both great but I like the surroundings of packing and conversation at night. It also depends on the location. I've had fun at Caesars Palace as well.

  • Actually I would like to do both. Go for a hike then come back to the hotel to relax.

    However if I had to choose one or the other I'd probably choose the luxury hotel. Cause I value relaxation much more than hiking.

  • Hotel, I like the comfort. Plus you can still go on the same hikes and return to the hotel a few days later.

    When you're physically exhausted and sore a good hotel beats a hostel or a tent by milees

  • Backpacking, for sure. It's just more interesting to me. Resorts are nice, but they aren't really relaxing the way hiking to a great view is.

  • Backpacking.
    When I went to US and Vancouver two months ago, I backpacked and stayed in hostels. It was my first time doing so and I really enjoyed the experience.

  • I’ve tried backpacking and I say no thanks to dirty, broken hostels. Wouldn’t, and haven’t, done it again. I’d much rather stay at fancy hotels.
