#12 Fully Depending On The Travel Guide
Yes, travel guides are a great starting point to get you familiar with a destination before you visit it. However, it would be a mistake to fully rely on it for ALL your travel experiences – like where to stay, what to do, and where to eat.
Instead, step out and explore the place on your own, talk to locals, shop owners to ask about the best places to visit and where they eat and hang out. You’ll be surprised at the gems you can discover when you go off the beaten path!
