Experience tourism gives you a unique and immersive experience to mingle with the locals and partake in the culture of the people. In this tourism, you can opt for food tourism where you can taste or learn to cook the local cuisines or learn a craft or even live with local families rather than in hotels and get to know about their traditions and cultures. The key to do this is to be mindful and sensitive to those welcoming you to their locale. Do not objectify or fall prey to cultural appropriation. Choose to research beforehand for a richer takeaway.

Glamping varies in accommodation ranging across tents, villas, cabins, lodges, tepees, and tree houses, and many more.

One interesting fact of a road trip is that the first long-distance road trip by the automobile took place in Germany in August 1888 by Bertha Benz, the wife of Karl Benz intended to generate publicity for her husband’s invention of the motor car. This trend has grown enormously in 2020 due to pandemic and restrictions on travelling internationally or by flight. Road Trips are also an ideal option for families or those who have lived together, as it reduces the risk of infection from strangers. The downside is using public washrooms or reststops – the reason why caravan travelling or house on wheels are slowly gaining momentum.
