DON’T take travel advice to heart.
There are a lot — A LOT — of voices out there vying for your attention to tell you what to do, where to stay, what to eat, when to go. In our series of the same namesake as this article, we’ve even advised travelers what not to do. Of course, these were done in the vein of getting our readers to explore the more unknown sides of places (also playfully subverting the typical travel service article), not literally to discourage travelers from seeing the big and famous sights.
In any case, advice is just suggestions. No one writing it knows you; don’t treat it as gospel. Don’t lose your own experience trying to re-live someone else’s.
