As we all know travel is one of the most popular forms of leisure around the world. So therefore when most of us decide to take a vacation from work it almost always involves planning to travel somewhere. There are so many interesting things to see and learn about on this planet listing them is only going to cover ten of them. These are 5 random amazing travel facts that are definitely going to be of interest to you:
1.The biggest hotel on earth is not where you think it is.
Many people would assume that the largest hotel in the world would be in one of the large vacation cities like Las Vegas or even in some tropical island in the Bahamas. Let me shock you, it is actually located in Pahang Darul, Makmur. This is an area in Malaysia. This mammoth accommodation is the Genting Highlands Resort and has a total of over ten restaurants with more than 6,000 separate rooms. This hotel takes finding your room to a whole new level.
2. Do not insult the chef
When traveling to Switzerland there is one rule that you must know before you get there. Using salt and pepper to season your food at a restaurant is considered to be very offensive to the people who prepared the meal. This is a normal thing as you have the right to season your meal but in Switzerland it isn’t. You never mess with the people who make your food so you will just have to eat it how it is. Just Try!
3. America really does have a lot of airports
America citizens travel so much as they have 33% of airports in the world. But in relation to the previous fact about the amount of airports located in the US this may not come as a complete shocker but is still true. At any given time during a day there are over 61,000 people flying in planes above the country. That is a hard thing to picture but it shows how important air travel is to their economy.
4. Traveling by boat is trending
This is not referring to taking a ferry to get from one place to the other. We talking about yachting. As it has become a huge luxurious industry around the world and it is thanks to consumers that travel. Most families are now chartering yachts and setting sail as a different way to explore the world. Would love to try that soon.
5. There is one country on the planet with no rivers
This could be hard to imagine. Not just an area but a country where there are exactly zero rivers. As a country Saudi Arabia is in its own class as it literally does not have a single river. If you are traveling there, then forget about yachting. Though Saudi Arabia is still a beautiful country to visit; just be prepared to swim in a man-made pool instead of a river.
Sincerely, there are lots more amazing travel facts but this are random interesting facts about travel in our world. This is by no means a top five list of facts as any could have been at the number one spot. These facts are meant to incite your curiosity and give you some information you may not have.
