Or perhaps you're a Parisian who would recommend visiting a smaller, more manageable museum like the Palais de Tokyo or Fondation Louis Vuitton in place of the giant Louvre.

Maybe you hail from Iceland and you'd suggest skipping Gullfoss waterfall in favor of Hraunfossar, a beautiful series of dramatic falls most travelers don't know about.

Or you're from Tokyo, and you would suggest saving your blow-out sushi meal for lunchtime, when prices are far cheaper than at dinner.
