Before I visit a certain place, I make sure that I research about it. One way is to connect with the locals living in the destination I am visiting. The locals know more about their place and the hidden destinations that only a few have visited. This way, I know I'll get to see, learn and experience something new and unusual. Traveling with the locals will get you to "off the beaten destinations" and get a chance to explore the unexplored that most travel guide books won't tell you.
Exploring Sabtang, Batanes
I always believe that for you to be well acquainted with the place you're visiting is to "live like a local". If you are someone who can survive not minding the comforts of a 5-star accommodation or of a posh restaurant, why not stay in a local's home and taste the local food? This way, you'll get to tour around and learn more about the locals' day to day life and the joys of a simple living.
