What are some of your favourite places that is not on the standard tourist trail?

A couple of mine - Paestum and Herculaneum outside of Naples (can be done in day visits). Herculaneum was more magnificent, and far less crowded, than Pompeii. Paestum is an alternative to Valley of the Giants in Agrigento, and is beautiful.

No matter where you go, as long as it is off the beaten track, in the hills and canyons that crisscross and encircle Los Angeles, or in the wilderness beyond, you are bound to catch a glimpse, if not more, of this year's phenomenal floral display.

The majority of the wonders to be seen in Thailand have become top tourist traps by default, so getting off the beaten path is an undertaking for a different kind of thrill: the experience of true Thai life, synced with the ebb and flow of the weather and the seasons. This makes exploring and experiencing the “unseen” Thailand a great opportunity to break from the hustle of 9-5 culture, and often to find more eco-friendly and fulfilling experiences.
