What I recommends to my readers is no matter where and how you are travelling if you have never been to that place than do check the feedbacks of visitors as it will not only help you to explore the place better but it will also give you an estimate about places that are worth travelling and even you can get an idea of expense at that place by checking the costing there ,which is easily available over the web .
Also, feedbacks will also help you to know places where it can be avoided to travel, and, in this way, you can save your time travelling to wrong place and invest that in exploring a good place.
Above mentioned benefits of feedbacks are the reasons of mine recommending checking feedbacks and reviews at priority while travelling
to new place even in the same city as it can help you to know about the quality, quantity and ambience which can give you an idea that whether you should visit the place or not
Imagine going to a new restaurant and not liking the food or ambience
can end up spoiling your day so it is better travelling to a place after having a bit idea about it so that it can help you enjoying a little more.
Also, while checking the feedbacks one should at least check seven to ten feedbacks go get the good understanding of the place as it can help you taking the decision better.
