And too lots of the small towns revolve round a Wal-Mart strip mall and clusters of budget motels – not lots to offer a solo traveler. Sure there’s a tradition shift, however on the end of the day everyone is speaking the identical language, watching the identical TV exhibits, and consuming on the similar chain restaurants you’re already conversant in. I’m pretty experienced and this would be my third or 4th solo trip. I by no means went to Asia and I did not have to plan out a transportation that a lot. I’m also questioning how safe/easy it is, as a outcome of it is a much less obvious vacation spot.
