Traveling has become so popular these days that it’s getting harder and harder to find a place you can visit that’s not crowded with tourists. People are inclined to travel because airline companies are almost always offering tickets on sale, and hotels are also slashing their accommodation prices. Popular shows on TV such as Globe Trekker (formerly Lonely Planet), and No Reservations all the more entice people to get off the couch, pack their belongings, and head off to some distant country.

In recent years, picking a destination and finding a way to get there is the easy part of going on a vacation. The hard part is getting away from the crowd and immersing your self in a place that hasn’t yet turned into a commercial establishment. Let’s face it, popular tourist attractions in major countries around the globe will always grab our attention, but somehow the long lines and hordes of other tourists manage to make the experience a bit less special.
