We know how frustrating it can be to arrive at an unknown destination and then be totally overwhelmed by the sheer number of things to do and attractions to see. We’ve been there and back again, and guess what? We know what it feels like to miss out on an amazing opportunity because we didn’t pre-book the experience.
Planning a holiday is about so much more than just booking the hotel, flights and transport. You have to sit down and plan a “to-do” and “to-see” itinerary, unless offcourse you’re happy to miss out on the best that a destination has to offer.
Peak seasons are generally when most activities are fully booked, which means you’d have to look at booking at least 6 months in advanced for the outing. Make sure you book your main attractions and activities first.
You also want to sit down and check out a few travel tips and tricks, see what other (seasoned) travellers recommend doing and seeing in a specific destination. A lot of “big” attractions tend to be located in central areas, which means that once you’ve seen what’s on offer, you can hit the road by foot and explore the beauty that lies off the beaten path.
As a final note, keep in mind that if you’re going to visit small towns and villages, you’ll need to set out at least one day (if not more) to get the feel of the setting and its people, otherwise you’ll end up rushing through the site and not getting an authentic experience.
