Travelling is often shrouded in misinformation and unfortunately this can lead to people being put off visiting certain places, or travelling altogether.
A lot of the confusion around travelling comes from stories and hearsay from travellers who have had bad experiences. While it’s unfortunate when travellers run into problems, it is not usually a true representation of the destination or type of trip they are on.
To help put some of the most common travel misconceptions to rest, we have made a handy little list for you.
