We meet a diverse range of individuals on the road, including beggars and backpackers, hotel owners and hippies, cops and politicians, travellers and tourists. You don’t always get a sense of what you’re doing and why you’re doing it – until you talk to the people you care for.
If so, which one appeals to you the most? Which one is best for you as a person?
The material difference is the duration
Tourists, on one hand, are more constrained by time. A traveller, in my opinion, should spend at least three months somewhere, or at least one month in each nation visited. This is in stark contrast to the visitor, who has only three weeks to see as much as possible and a flight booking back home once those three weeks end.
This has a clear and impact on how you spend your time
A tourist has a strong desire to see as much as possible. The concept is that to truly understand a country, one must visit its buildings, museums, and historical places. Taking pictures of yourself in these places helps you return to your own country and prove that you were there. Book a train ticket and visit every significant part of the city you’re in. Because of your limited time, you must see and spend. Take home memories and surprise your friends with breathtaking landscape and beach photos.
How does this compare to the amount of time a traveller spends on the road?
There is a hazy list of locations to visit, but the route and how you go there are the most crucial parts of the experience. Interaction, enjoyment, and spontaneity are what brings satisfaction to the traveller. Make sure your hotel booking is in a public area with more locals than tourists. It encourages you to interact with locals, tell them your tale and hear their stories.
Being a Tourist Has Its Advantages
You learn about other cultures and trying a national dish can be something you do either once-twice a year when on holiday. When you visit cultures, you are aware that your money supports them, and you are not hesitant to expect value for the money you spend. You project your expectations onto other worlds and suppose others meet them, not the other way around.
If you’re short on time but have plenty of cash or credit, becoming a tourist appeal.
The Allure of Leisure Travel
If you want to learn about different cultures, being a traveller is a terrific way to do it. While you were raised in an exotic nation (or two), you are open to learning from individuals who appear more safe and happy on the surface but are more technologically advanced. You walk instead of travelling by cabs. The draw of travelling is that you may immerse yourself in the mundane and day-to-day worlds of other people without having to rush from one site to the next or tour to tour.
Make your own decision
The fear of the unknown is a typical concern among visitors. For a traveller, the unknown is what we are looking for. While we all look to be strangers to the locals, we occasionally feel the same way about some tourists we encounter.
