But, most of the people already had enough of the crowded beaches and even more crowded cities. Turning to village tourism makes sense if we observe it like that. And don’t be mistaken by thinking that nothing ever happens in villages and that there is nothing to do when you are there. Take Australian Kin Kin, for example. This whole area is well known for great food, interesting art scene and amazing scenery. Now that we have your attention, we would like to tell you what you can do in this lovely place.
