|On going DIY for your vacation...|
the collage above is formed by photos taken during the first two days of my recent japan trip..
唔好誤會, 我其實仲未寫晒我日本北海道之旅嘅, 咁對你嚟講, 係好消息定壞消息?? 呵呵.. 其實我怕太多遊記會悶親大家, 而且對某些讀者嚟講係篇篇都非常之長氣, 所以我認為係時候暫時小休片刻囉.. 係呀, 呢一個北海道遊記系列, 我決定喺遊記之間擺幾個同旅行有關嘅「休息post」緩和一下, 大家對眼要休息, 我個腦都要休息嘛, 哈哈!! 好喇, 今日就寫返篇短文啦..請點擊!! >>
如果大家有日去旅行, 究竟會選擇自助旅行, 定係跟旅行團就算呢?? 我當然係比較喜歡前者啦, 因為可以根據自己嘅時間同埋選擇要去邊而去自己plan行程.. 當然, 出發之前有好多功課要做, 時間緊迫嘅時候仲可能導致壓力問題, 不過唯有如此先可以更加了解一個地方同佢嘅文化.. 另一方面, 我大可參加旅行團, 俾錢之後開開心心等出發, 有個導遊充當阿四角色, 帶我去主要旅遊聖地, 唔駛排隊買飛之余有可以優先入場--完全無憂無慮.. 不過我之前兩次經驗(超過十年前)教識我以後唔駛考慮旅行團, 趕死趕命而且大部份時間都係坐巴士同去購物, 必去景點好多時候係要額外補錢, 市區遊一定係坐喺巴士內齋睇就算, 萬一有得揀可以去邊都係要少數服從多數.. 所以話, 過去十幾年來, 我所有嘅旅行都係自助性質, 我覺得我應該完全控制自己嘅行程, 我應該跟住自己嘅時間和步伐去享受自己嘅假期.. 你又如何呢?? :)
no no no, i assure you that i am not done with my Hokkaido trip yet.. so, is this a good or a bad news to you?? hehe.. but i guess i have bored you with too many travelogue posts which are also very long-winded to some readers, that i supposed it would be better to take a break.. yeah, there shall be interim breaks (still related to travel) in between posts for this series, a break for your eyes as well as a break for my mind mah, haha!! okay, then we shall have a short post for today..CLICK THIS!! >>
do you prefer to go on a vacation which is of DIY nature or guided group tour?? i certainly prefer the former, as i can plan for my own itinerary following my own pace and time and choose where i would like to go.. of course, a lot of research work and preparations need to be done ahead, probably stress when time is tickling, but that's how i learn more about the place and probably culture.. on the other hand, i can just pay for a travel agent and then pack my luggage to wait to go on my vacation, and have the tour guide bring us to all major tourist attractions, no need to queue to buy tickets and can have the priority to enter before other tourists - no frills and all relax.. but my two times of such experience (more than 10 years ago) taught me to never consider group tours again, too rush and a big chunk of time was spent on the coach and shops, some must-go places were included as "optional excursion" where i needed to top up for, city tours were always inside the coach, and i only went to places where the majority agreed to if there was ever a choice.. that explains why, for the past 10 years, all the trips i went were only of DIY nature, i just want to have control over my own itinerary, and to enjoy at my holiday at own pace.. what about you?? :)
