when people travel to another country, like Europe, or Pakistan or India etc , what are they wanting to see that cant see on You tube?


was hearing how someone had spent months reading everything they could about their trip to Pakistan and watching everything they could on Youtube about it, so, i was wondering , why need to go there?  you are paying to fly over there and pay a hotel to go to a restaurant there and then what? (you can see it better and more places for free on Youtube why go over there?

Update 2:

what do you mean "experience " it? you can experience it via reading about it, its history, etc and seeing all kinds of things that would be limited to see if you were actually there (I mean it is EASIER to see more of it via computer now)

    It's as Andrew says.  It's to experience it for yourself.  What you see on Youtube or Google maps, Streetview or whatever, all you're getting is a brief, visual glance.

    Yes, via the Internet you can see it - but NOT 'see it better'.  In fact, you see comparatively little.

    Reading about it is NOT experiencing it.  Learning about a place before you go is sensible and can help you a lot.  You'd learn where to go, what to look out for, how to find your way around and so on.  But it's a pale, feeble version of the real experience.

    Why do people do to watch a football or baseball game in person?  They could watch the game on TV, couldn't they? 

    Why do people go to see a play on stage, at a theatre? They could probably find it on Youtube or on TV, couldn't they?

    By using Youtube, the TV, Google, etc, all you're seeing is a second-hand, flat version of reality.  If you don't go, and see for yourself, personally, you're missing the atmosphere, the smells, talking to the people who live there, the whole 'feeling' of the places.

    You seem to think that whatever is the 'easiest' way is always better.  It's not.

    People also want to experience other cultures and the way they live . Our society in america is definitely not the best so if someone wants to take a break of our 💩 quality of life . That is a vacation of it's self

    they got too much money obviously, and i am sure the people over there in Pakistan were happy to take their dollars from them for their restaurants and hotel stays and taxi cabs
