When we think of “Travelling Like A Local” that can really vary depending on where we are thinking – to some its roaring down the autobahn at 200kph in Germany, trying on a very overcrowded train in India, being whisked by Tuk-Tuks through Vietnams streets, or using shanks mare when hiking the Andes.
When we talk about “Travelling Like A Local” what we mean is getting down to the grass roots of an area, where you not only see the major highlights, but can see and to some extent experience the local region in a manner that shows off not just how the locals live but how they experience their world.
We are truly thrilled that the leading brand in this style of tourism – Intrepid – will be attending My Travel Festival and we encourage you to come along and make the best of this opportunity!
Whether it is sitting back and enjoying a traditional Greek meal at a cafe in Athens, riding that feared Tuk-Tuk through Hanoi, picking tea leaves in Darjeeling or watching the spectacle of Semana Santa in Guatemala, Intrepid is determined to bring you a travel experience that will last a lifetime, while doing their best to ensure that the way you travel, and the experiences you gain in the course of your travels are as much importance afterwards as the sights that you have seen while travelling.
So, as an example, in Bangkok instead of using a bus to get from the markets to the temples, you may end up in a rickshaw, or in Italy you may end up on a train between cities rather than a coach.
In Sapa you may be offered the opportunity to stay and work at a local farm rather than overnight in a luxury hotel, and in Peru you will be able to hike along the Inka Trail rather than just taking the train up (though that option is also available)
With tour programmes available worldwide – and even here at home in Australia – dedicated small groups so you get the best experience of both the sites and the guides knowledge, and even a dedicated range of 18-29’s only tours (a great alternative to the standard 18+ operators – especially if you want a real travel experience), coupled with their eco-friendly and socially responsible touring causes and beliefs all make Intrepid one of the greatest travel suppliers of their kind – so we heartily encourage you to come down to My Travel Festival and see the spectacular range of product they have on offer.
