Do you prefer hot or cold weather?
Would you rather adventure or relaxation?

Decide when you want to travel
The weather and how busy it will be will play a huge part in deciding when to travel.

This type of pass usually saves you money if you were buying each ticket separately.
You should also research free places to visit or tours you can attend.
Having a rough idea of what activities you will be doing will allow you to change your budget if needs be.
Food and drink
