Everyone may agree with the statement saying that Asia is probably one of the most magical places you can visit. A lot of travellers go in and out of the continent every year, bringing home with them fantastic memories, picture-perfect moments captured on camera and unforgettable experiences that have changed their perspective on life. However, even though travelling to Asia sounds like a wonderful adventure, there are those that still buy into myths that are stopping them from planning a visit.
Myths About Travelling To Asia Debunked
You’ve probably been putting your trip off because you believe common myths about travelling to Asia on this list are true:
Asia is a dangerous place to visit.
If Asia was dangerous, you wouldn’t hear about several travellers’ amazing experiences through their personal websites or their social media accounts. You also probably wouldn’t see several pictures online about some of the most breath-taking Asian views. Besides, if a particular Asian country was dangerous, in the middle of war, or something to that effect, you can be sure that your local travel authorities would let you know.
Travelling to Asia can break your bank.
Who, in the world, says that going to Asia can break your bank? It could if you choose to be in first class all the way, but there are several options you can choose from – low-budget to mid-budget trip options. How do you think a lot of travel bloggers went to Asia? It’s not because they were treated to first class accommodation, that’s for sure. They did it backpacking. Some foods and accommodations can fit your budget. Just stay away from major hotels.
You need to learn the language first.
It’s true that there are certain countries that require a traveller or an immigrant worker to learn the language, first, before they can visit. But, there is no such requirement when you visit Asia. Maybe if you are planning to work in Japan or Korea, a company may need you to learn the basics of their native language, but travellers don’t have to take a class or undergo language training of any sort.
So, those are the most common myths about Asia that may be stopping you from planning a trip. Now that you know they aren’t true, is there anything else that’s hindering you from paying Asia a visit?
