Sometimes it can be a bit tedious to visit all the usual destinations; fighting through the crowd of tourists wherever you go, whatever you do. So how about opting for something a little more hidden? The idea of traveling to the "second city" is beginning to evolve and is becoming increasingly popular as tourists feel the need to change known cities and regions for a lesser-known alternative.
Whether you're looking to get off the beaten track or venture out of the tourist traps to be surrounded by different cultures, with locals happy to see you, pristine landscapes and crowd-free opportunities to capture a must-see photo.
