Are you a Tourist or a Traveller?

Greetings traveller,

Much like favourite genres of music or literature vary from person to person, the way people travel also varies. Some like to capture each and every moment in their cameras while others venture out to soak up every moment and capture them in their memories. Some may look for the best restaurants to eat at while others would walk towards the shanty, yet tasteful establishments.

Take a look to find out what kind of a person are you:


1 – You just landed. How do you get to your hotel?

A) A hotel transfer is waiting for you at arrivals.

B) The low-priced local metro system.
