Are you thinking of going on holiday in space? Well, you may not be able to go to the Moon, but you could consider a space tour! This kind of ‘holiday’ allows people to stay in space in a space station. Of course, it’s very expensive and you’d have to be a millionaire to afford it!

First of all, it costs 30 million dollars! Secondly, there’s a pretty long waiting list - there are no free places for some years. Finally, you have to be very fit and healthy and do a lot of training to prepare yourself before you can go on this kind of holiday.

So, why do people want to travel in space? Well, the answer seems to be the excitement and the fun of seeing Earth from above. Astronauts have described the view of Earth from space as absolutely breathtaking. Also, if you have enough to go on this kind of holiday, imagine the stories you’ll be able to tell your friends.

If you’re feeling a bit down about not being able to be a space tourist, there is some hope for you in the future. Some people are now looking into the ideas of space hotels. Some Japanese designs look very exciting. If they are built, they will offer all the things you expect in a hotel. It will be interesting to see what they will be like. 

For now, you will have to forget space holidays unless you are rich. I don’t know about you, but I’m going to visit a nice beach and relax in the sun. Maybe if I stay late, I can imagine I’m on the Moon as well!
