The survey of 2,001 Chinese found that 86.7 percent of them love to travel.


A total of 63.3 percent of them prefer independent trips because they can set their own schedule, while 62.3 percent believe it is better to travel on their own.


"Without travel agents, tourists have more freedom. I can drive and enjoy the scenery along the road, or if the road is suitable for riding a bike, I will choose that," said Qin Mingxuan who works at a financial firm in Beijing.


The respondents' favorite mode of transportation is driving (74.4 percent).


"I want to be free from being forced into shopping malls by travel agents, where you can do nothing but shop," Qin said.


"Before the Internet, travel agents were a great help for those who knew little about their destination. With online travel guides, it is easy to travel independently," Qin said.


The survey also lists dos and don'ts for independent travelers.


A total of 61.6 percent like a detailed travel plan, 61.2 percent said travel with companions is safer, and 57.6 percent suggested booking accommodation in advance.

Then again, why do people want to travel?

If you are not willing to question your customs and habits, travelling to foreign places should be avoided because you will cause disturbances there.

I prefer to stay at home. I'm already there.

People that like to travel remind me of people that like to now their lawn. Look at me I'm doing stuff! Traveling is so pathetic.

I do not expect a person to be a certain way just because they come from this country or that. So-called culture is nonsense and stereotyping. Its racism is what it is you know.
