How to plan an unforgettable vacation without the involvement of travel agencies

In order to spend an unforgettable holiday in any country of the world, it is not necessary to contact the tour operator or the Agency – any independent travel will be many times more interesting than “on the ticket”. Passion.ru talked to seasoned travelers and found the main principles, following which you will be able to experience and benefit from his trip.
Why and where are you going?
This is perhaps the main point, having decided on which you will be able to plan everything else. Answer the question what attracts you: cities and museums, nature reserves and parks, shopping and entertainment, local delicacies and culinary traditions. Or do you even dream of a “vegetable” holiday and plan to spend the next two weeks on some exotic beach, which is known only to the locals? All this will help you to determine the key points and get the most impressions from the trip.

Check your calendar
One of the main points, which many tourists forget, but in vain. For example, you decide to go to a hot country and relax on the beach, but at this time there is still a rainy season, so it is likely to spend most of the holiday in the hotel, museums or bars. In addition, it may be that the sea has not yet warmed up, and the reserves are closed, and there are not many people in the city, so there is nothing much to do. Therefore, learn in advance about the climate of the country, about the schedule of institutions and the upcoming national holidays (so that it does not happen that you came to rest and get to some noisy celebration, like a carnival).

Gather information about the country and make an action plan
Even if you have chosen a destination that you have visited before, it will not be superfluous to find out what has changed in the country since your last stay, what laws have been introduced for tourists (sometimes this happens, what was allowed before, now was banned), what new places have opened and so on-so on. After all, perhaps before you were passing and did not have time to learn everything properly. Therefore, to this time the rest did not get crumpled, it is better to know everything in advance and prepare. And if you have chosen the country where you have never been, then you should start by studying (or even buying) a guide and determining the main places that you would definitely like to visit.
