There is no shame in calling yourself an introvert and also having a wanderlust to travel. Being an introvert doesn’t mean that you don’t have the right to visit different places because you don’t like to interact much. For an introvert, visiting places which are not too crowded or a billion hawkers trying to sell and forcing you to buy something might be the best holiday plan.
For people belonging to the introvert category, travelling means an opportunity to know the world around them, exploring new places they have only heard of and learning about the culture and people living over there. So yes, crowded spots definitely not work for them.
So here are few places that an introvert who has bitten by travel bug could visit.
The reason this place comes at the top of the list is the awesome initiative taken by the government over here.
