There are a lot of people who’ll be pretty upset with me for letting the cat out of the bag, but here it is: it’s better to travel during off-season. I’ll give you good reasons. First, it will be cheaper. During season, rates go sky high, because for tourist destinations, you’re their meal ticket. Second, it will be far less crowded. This is obvious – there are times when you can travel, like holidays, and winter destinations are meant for the winter while summer destinations are meant for the summer. Take that schedule away and half the problem of a place being too touristy will be sorted.
Third, you will have a different experience from everybody else. They will see what they expect to see. You might not see that, but you will get to see a lot of hidden gems that you will treasure. Finally, you can expect a better experience from the people around. They won’t look at you first and foremost as an easy mark, so you will be far more likely to make friends – the real kind.
