Almost every major city in the world has its own tourist information center, but not everyone takes time to visit one. If you tend to avoid them during your adventures, here’s why they’re worthy of your time.
Visitor centers can provide you with free maps, guides, and other useful resources. You may feel like you don’t need them, because you already have everything on your phone, but they can always come in handy – especially if your battery runs out.
If you feel a little bit lost after reaching a new city, a tourist information center is a place to go. There’s usually one located at the airport, and they can advise you how to reach the city and recommend top attractions you should check out once you’re there.
Even if you already know what you want to do and see, speaking with locals could give you some new ideas. Their advice can save you a lot of money and time along the way because it’s their job to know how the city works.
