Hold and admire the sunset, or sit alongside the road listening to the chirping of the birds, whining of the squirrels, and more. Sit on the beach and relax, or trek to the highest top to find solace, enjoy dancing under the waterfall, or simply learn the art of watching people.

Talking to strangers especially locals can surely give you a lot of recommendations, and even guide you with the language and cultural norms. Locals are the best guide who gives you an insight into the history of the place, culture, and traditions, help you to make a valiant attempt to speak their language and more.
