When we initiated our offbeat travel destination and travelogue contest, many of our friends countered us with a specific question, “What do you mean by offbeat travel destination?” “How do you define one?”

At first, we were taken aback by this simple question! How can anyone have doubts about the definition of offbeat tourist spots? However, when we sat down to define them, we realized that there is no clear cut demarcation between a mainstream tourist spot and an offbeat one.

So, we began a compilation of defining points to differentiate an offbeat travel destination from a mainstream one. Please check and vote if you agree with these defining points:
