“No matter how hard you try to pretend you’re not, you’re still just a tourist.”

“I’ve had a recent change of heart about this, but there is nothing wrong with visiting tourist destinations or using tourism infrastructure.

I used to pride myself in going to ‘off-the-beaten-path’ places and sort of ‘roughing it.’ But as I’ve gotten older, I don’t feel the need to impress anyone. There’s a reason tourist destinations are popular.”

“More geared towards this forum, but it is possible to visit and enjoy a place without spending eight weeks there.”

“I love to travel, but we must stop telling everyone they need to travel. Some people do not like traveling because of the cost, fear, avoidance of discomfort, or other mental health/physical reasons. 

Traveling is like dancing. The people who love to dance want everyone to dance and try to pull them onto the dance floor. But it annoys people who dislike dancing, so stop it.”

“As someone who’s traveled extensively, what it means to travel and vacation is different for everyone. I don’t get the shaming that goes on.

If people want to go to a resort and relax, that’s travel for them. If people want to go up in the mountains, that’s travel for them. If people want to hit only the tourist cities, that’s travel for them.

If people want to take a train, a bus, or two taxis to the most remote town in Germany where no locals speak English, that’s travel for them. I can’t stand it when people look down on people for their travel choices.”

“No matter how rich/important you are in your country and how many times you have traveled, if your passport is from a poor country (mine included), immigration people will treat you like poor.”

“Local wines always taste better in the country you buy them in and seem to miss when you bring them home.”

“I prefer staying in a city for three nights; it can get boring, and I like seeing 2 to 3 cities a few nights each rather than one city in a whole week.

Megacities like Bangkok, London, and New York are different since you never run out of things to see and do. I still think three nights can be good in a city like that.”

“It’s perfectly fine to visit the same place repeatedly, even if there’s a huge part of the world you’ve not visited yet.”

“It’s okay not to like the food of the country you’re visiting. Eating the same cuisine for over a week can get old.”

“Having a detailed itinerary and many pre-booked tickets makes for a better trip for everyone.

When you ‘go with the flow’ and plan nothing, one person often has a less-than-ideal trip because they’re constantly researching directions, opening times, ticket prices, etc. That’s not fair to that one person.”

“I have the same opinion many people have about reading; traveling needn’t make you better than others. Also, for many, it’s a privilege. I often see condescending remarks like ‘Go climb a mountain, read a book, etc.’”
