I haven't travelled much and now I'm trying to figure out what would be a nice place for holidays. I like systematic approaches and maybe you have some suggestions what I should look out for and where to find information. I try to explain.
I'd like to decide on some parameters and then filter all available options from that. For example I could decide:
- how far should it be; price for the flight
- how expensive should be living there
- what the temperature there during that time
- how politically safe
- which region of that country; nature or tourism
- maybe some short info about the area would be nice
- how much entertainment activities do I need
- how to decide on a hotel if they all look alike
So figuring out the price is easy. I've also found a site with warnings for tourists. However, what's the best way to find out about prices in that country (google McDonalds burger? :) )? Is there a good site to find seasonal temperatures for all regions? And how do I find some information about all regions without reading essays about each one? I'd like to know key facts like if there is much tourism or not etc. I really would like to compare many places so summaries and overviews would be helpful.
What else should I look out for? And good rule of thumbs for searching for a hotel? Often they all seem alike. Any particularly good site that has some "systematic" short information for the destinations? If you ask in a forum, then you get hundreds of "Oh, I like XYZ best", so I still don't know how to decide.
I'm from Germany. I prefer (near to) all-inclusive offers and I don't need sightseeing.
