Tired of hearing about the same old "top travel spots"? Sick of traveling halfway across the world only to wind up with a bunch of tourists? Searching for fabulous destinations that only the locals know about? So are we! That's why we started Travel Chix -- the blog that transports you to those little known, locals-only vacation spots around the world. We're talking about those hidden enclaves where you can ditch the tourists and immerse yourself in local culture. Check back every week for the latest postings and email us if you have suggestions about places that you think we should profile.
Sisters Lilu & Deen both share a love for traveling and writing. Although these thirty-somethings have both journeyed far and wide in the name of writing, they don't often do it together because their travel tastes are VERY different. Lilu mostly looks for those rugged eco-adventures like camping by a croc infested river in Botswana or hiking through a Malaysian rainforest. Deen mostly prefers to kick back in more luxurious surroundings like dining at a chic restaurant on the French Riviera or indulging in a seaweed body wrap at a 5-star resort in Tulum, Mexico. Their tastes in travel do coincide, however, when it comes to their desire to escape the throngs of tourists and get in with the locals. For both sisters, cultural immersion is an essential part of every trip-- and the thing that continues to whet their wanderlust.
