Artemis2015, I suggest that you edit out the link to your youtube channel from your previous post. It's essentially promotion of a personal nature and that's not allowed on Travellerspoint. If you don't do it, I'm sure one of the moderators will. (Edited to add: looks like one of the mods had a finger on the trigger! )

I confess to using YouTube videos as a tool to plan trips. I find they can be helpful, particularly to new destinations, some of which are remote or unusual (for example YouTube videos on the sub-Antarctic islands of Australia and New Zealand). They also can be helpful in describing hikes, such as the Dolly Sods Wilderness in West Virginia. I particularly like videos that focus on culture and language. Videos of performances, such as Noh, and music, such as Fado, along with their historic and cultural significance, help increase our understanding of the destinations visited. Not all videos have a commercial purpose. I've posted YouTube videos of the music and dances of villages I've visited in India, Africa and elsewhere. These are performances that a friend and I arranged and supported. I leave this week for Alaska, and I found YouTube videos of Inuit and Tlingit culture to be illuminating, including Inuit throat-singing. I've witnessed Koryaks in Kamchatka (in Russia's Far East, across the Bering Sea from Alaska) also throat-singing. It's wise to use all resources available to help boost our travel experiences and to gain a better understanding of the people and places we visit.

I guess it's best to add YouTube to other researching tools :)

Hey hey! Usually, I'm getting inspired by talking to local people. It's easy to find them on Instagram in the theme accounts. Before going to Switzerland, for example, I was checking some articles by local bloggers as well as the official governmental website. Some countries have really good official websites where you find all rules and necessary information.
