Trying to decide on your next vacation spot can be a tough decision—so many places in this world, offering so many different things; overall, though, not a bad problem to have when you think about it. If you are currently pondering the possibilities and feel stuck about making a decision, here are some tips that may help ease the burden.
Do Not Rely Too Much on the Opinions of Others
Travel is a hugely subjective experience , and if you have ever engaged with other people about the travel spots you have each hit, you will see the glaring truth of this. I have been touring Southeast Asia for the last 20 months and I cannot tell you how many times I have encountered someone telling me how much they disliked a spot I absolutely loved! If you are dying to go to Vegas, but everyone you talked to did not like it, go anyway.
Pick Somewhere You Have Enough Money to Actually Enjoy
I know for many people, being able to afford a trip may involve staying in hostels and other low-end accommodations , and eating at cheap restaurants – nothing wrong with cutting some corners to be able to make your dream trip a reality. But, do not pick a place where you will be on such a tight budget you will have to carefully contemplate every dollar spent and not be able to really enjoy yourself. You may really want to hit Hawaii, but if your budget means the bare bones experience, you are cheating yourself out of a good trip. If you find a great deal to Vegas or Florida that will give you some more wiggle room in the money department, go there instead. Start your Hawaii fund and wait to go until you can do it right.
Visit Where You Want and Not Where You Think You ‘’Should’’ Visit
Within every region of the world and within each specific country, there are tourist hot spots, the popular places that are often recommended for tourists. They are usually recommended for a good reason, but it does not mean that every person going there would necessarily enjoy it or have an interest in that area. When we travel, we often feel a lot of pressure to hit the hot spots and plan our trip based on guidebook recommendations, but this can often lead us to disappointment and wasted time. When picking your destination, go where you want and not where you think you ‘’should’’ want to go. If you are going to Thailand, love beaches and hate big cities, do not force yourself to spend time in Bangkok because you think you should see it, especially if it means taking time away from doing the things you really love to do. If you are planning a trip to America and really have no interest in seeing New York, but would rather experience the rugged beauty of Montana, go for it.
