Travelling abroad is nice. But do you really need to cross a border to enjoy you holidays? I am not sure about it. Every country has unique sites, cultures and heritage.

Stay local. Especially in our times, after the COVID-19 outbreak, we need to support our economy. Economy needs support right now. When being a tourist in your own country you’re actively supporting your own economy. All the money you spend boosts tourism revenue and helps out local businesses.

Save money. A big trip can be quite costly, so why not spend it lots of mini trips? Save on flights and accommodation and use the extra money on more fun activities.

Learn more about your country. Every country has their own history and heritage. With domestic travel you actually might pick up a thing or two. You’ll be able to learn a lot and who knows, gain a deeper connection with your homeland.

Don’t worry about the language. Good thing with staying local is that you don’t have to worry about getting lost in translation.
