Why Not Try the Outskirts?
Sometimes there is not enough time for sightseeing when #travelling around a country, perhaps only two or three days in each city. Most of us just stick to staying within the downtown boundary. Like meeting a person for the first time; the initial impression appears to be one way (positive or negative) but you have to explore a bit to know more…
It would really pay to move away from the city center for a while and discover what else an area has to offer. Along with less touristic #venues, the people you meet may be more friendly and easy-going. Moreover, they can even tell you about different topics regarding both the local #culture and the way of life.
Hence my humble recommendation would be, if you have the time, always try the outskirts. You might be positively surprised!
