In Japan, where I live, some people think that they favor travel alone, because they can spent their time more relax. However, I personally prefer traveling with a companion and some other traveler to traveling alone for the following reasons.
First of all, traveling with a companion is more effective to learn about strange places than traveling alone. To give an example, whenever I went to some sightseeing spot or places, I could get precise explanation from a companion. When I was a high school student, I went to Kyoto that is famous sightseeing city in Japan with my classmates as a school trip. On the first day, we looked around by ourselves using self-planning schedule. Although it was exciting and impressive, we could not understand each sightseeing spot deeply. Actually, we only looked the spot. On the other hand, on the second day, we went around with a companion and got various explanation of historical events. We could study dramatically and impressively and the school trip became much more fun. As the example shows, traveling with a companion is more effective to learn about strange places than traveling alone.
Second, traveling with a companion is more convenient to look around strange places than traveling alone. To give an example, I can get proper tickets or map from a companion. When I went to Kyoto as above mentioned school trip, in the first day, we spent a lot of time to buy train ticket because the transportation system of Kyoto was very difficult. However, on the next day with a companion, we obtained free transportation tickets from a companion which could ride on all of the transportations such as trains, buses and a special classic car. In addition, the ticket was not sold for individual travler, only could buy a travel agency. The experience clearly shows that traveling with a companion is more convenient to look around strange places than traveling alone.
Thus, I definitely prefer traveling with a companion and some other traveler to traveling alone.
