It is a popular belief that Traveling is the best form of recreational activity but it is not always true. Let me explain, travelling to a popular destination during the tourist season can really take away a lot from the experience leaving more of rush and hustle behind and wasn’t these were the main things you try to escape from when you travel. So, this is how travel is not always the best recreational activity. Now, it might sound crazy but I hope atleast some of you would have pointed out that lack of precision in my claim as it was not totally correct. A more precise version of my statement would tat Travelling to some of the popular destinations is not always the best way to escape from hustle and rush. So, the problem has been discussed but nothing about the solution have been discussed yet. Is there any Solution to this problem? A simple and short answer is Yes. And somehow the answer is hidden inside the problem statement itself. The problem is that travelling to a popular destination can be a hustle in season, So, why not travel to an offbeat place where you will find less tourist and more peace and calm. Moreover, the experience is more or less similar or might be even better than a popular destination.
