This is the one thing you should Google while traveling: ‘Every tourist needs to hear this, it’s a highlight’
- Travelers recommend finding unique activities on holiday
- She said to always search ‘unique things to book’
A traveler has revealed the one thing everyone should Google on a holiday to have a fun, one-of-a-kind experience.
Anna Paul recommends searching the exact phrase ‘unique things to book’ in the city you’re in as a way to find unusual and little-known activities you wouldn’t typically see on travel websites.
‘When you go to a city you might think, ‘Oh I’ll see the landmarks, it’ll be amazing’, you never think the tiny little activities you book end up being the whole highlight of your trip,’ the 24- year-old said.
Anna is in Paris with her boyfriend, Glen, where they use the hack to find a bakery that teaches guests how to make their own croissants and baguettes as well as a perfume making class.
She also recommended walking ‘everywhere’ instead of getting taxis while exploring a new city to discover more hidden gems.

Keen traveler Anna Paul (pictured) said the one thing people should Google before any holiday is what unique experiences are on offer in the city they’re visiting

‘I am a travel genius, steal this idea from me. When you go to a new city, look up ‘unique things to book in’ and then type the name of the city and just book a bunch of things,’ Anna said in a TikTok clip.
‘Right now we’re in Paris in a little tiny bakery in the basement making baguettes from scratch.’
She said the activities have become the highlights of her travels and she prefers them over the typical tourist traps.
‘You don’t think back on the Eiffel Tower, you think, ‘Remember when we made that baguette? Why was it the best baguette I’ve ever had in my life?’ That is what makes trips so fun.
Anna said she had learned lots of interesting new things from her unique activities, including croissants made with half butter and half dough.

‘The good thing is these little activities can sometime navigate or inspire the rest of your day,’ she added.
Anna and Glen’s baguette baking gave them the idea to have a picnic so they visited a fromagerie, butcher and grocery store then wandered the streets to find the perfect park.
‘This is another tip, when you go to a new city, walk everywhere. Don’t Uber, walk. Trust me you will explore the city in such a different way,’ she said.
‘We ended up walking for two hours but that’s a good thing because we saw little tiny book stores and little chocolate stores that you never thought you would ever see.’
After their picnic, Anna and Glen went to a perfume making class where they created their own customized scents.

‘If I wear the perfume, and somebody asks me what I’m wearing I can say I made it myself in Paris,’ she said.
‘Look up unique activities to book and it will make your trip a thousand times more insane.’
She said another benefit of booking unique activities is the potential to meet people and make friends.
Viewers thought the travel tip was sound advice and it even inspired some to book activities for their upcoming getaways.
‘This is such a great idea, definitely a more sentimental way to spend your time traveling,’ one user said.
‘Made me book the jet ski experience in Miami,’ another replied.
‘Wow, that experience and advice is a chef’s kiss!’ wrote a third and someone else added: ‘I do this. Travel hack especially for solo girls.’
