Travel to Asia without being distracted by the touristy hype of the major cities of the region.

1.

Look for the local attractions that are in high demand in a particular region, and make your own list of attractions.

2.

Don’t be afraid to visit the old haunts, even if they’re not the most popular attractions.

3.

Be aware that many of the tourist attractions in Asia are not that popular or are closed for maintenance, so you might want to visit a more obscure or forgotten location first.

4.

Be prepared to pay a lot for your trip to Asia, but make sure to pay it all up front.

5.

Avoid being trapped in a tourist trap and pay attention to the local culture.
