7 Things to Do When It Rains on Your Vacation

As much as we hope for perfect weather on our vacation, Mother Nature is beyond our control, and it’s bound to rain on our plans. It’s easy to get frustrated and allow the rain clouds to ruin our vacation.

But a little rain shouldn’t spoil your fun. With a dash of creativity, some tweaks to your itinerary, and just a bit of pouting, it’s possible to enjoy a rainy afternoon as much as a sunny afternoon. Try one of these fun suggestions.

1. Visit a Food Market / Supermarket

Many food markets are indoors, like the one we visited in Chiang Mai. We spent hours getting to know local produce and eating fried bugs. If there isn’t an indoor food market, head to the grocery store for an equally rich food experience. Turn the excursion into a language lesson by learning new food words from the product placards.
