Which is the best drone for travel?

I have never been the best at comparing technical specifications when it comes to buying camera or tech gadgets, preferring instead to look at the end result of the product.

Anyone gets a headache comparing models across different brands too?

Well in case you want to make a comparison between the images that different drone models produce, let these travel photos convince you!

These contributions from travellers all around the world make me green with envy and marvel at how they get to reach the remotest parts of the world.

Sure enough, it made me open my calendar and look at my bank account to plan my next trip. I mean Bahamas, Fiji and even Africa. When will I earn enough to fly to these dream destinations?

Have the use of drones changed the way we travel?

Before you get lost in the drone pictures, do you think the use of drones have changed the way we travel?

Instagram sure has an influence on how we travel now – many travellers now choose to visit Instagram-worthy places of Melbourne, Maldives or New Zealand over more culturally-rich destinations like Pakistan, Iran or Kyrgyzstan.

The topic of whether drone will replace the essence of travel is controversial right now. Will drones replace the actual hike, since you can “hike” through your lens? Will it dilute the sense of achievement from  reaching the summit of a peak, since drones can do the same job for a fraction of the effort (thumbing your joystick)?

Drone regulations around the world

With the prevalence of drones used when travelling, it’s also important to be aware of the laws surrounding using drones in various countries.

While you may be able to fly your drone wherever you want back home, the city, county or state you’re traveling to may be a whole other matter. Knowing the law is especially critical if you’re traveling outside of the country. Different nations may have entirely different laws and rules regarding drone use in place, and many will require a UAV to be registered before use.

Be sure to contact law enforcement agencies at your vacation spot to get a better sense of what’s allowed and what’s forbidden.

For example, drones are often barred around major sporting events or political happenings, major roads and certain tourist attractions due to safety and privacy issues.

A friend of mine nearly got a hefty fine when using a drone abroad, he did not realise that close to the forest area he was flying over was a classified site!

Some countries such as Iran and Pakistan may not allow you into the country at all without prior written permission and other countries such as Peru may require you to pay a tax on the purchase value of the drone (which are sometimes refundable on country exit) when you arrive with one. Never assume the rules are the same in every location.

Many countries are also clamping down on drone use. For example, in Japan and Italy, drones are pretty much banned at all major tourist sites. In Qatar, drones are illegal. If you intend to fly your drone in Thailand, you have to register it. If you don’t, there is a hefty fine or even imprisonment on the radar.

Flying from Mauritius to the remote island of Rodrigues gave me a fabulous view of the reef that surrounds the island encapsulating it in a shallow lagoon where the water is crystal clear and the most beautiful shade of turquoise.

Rodrigues Island is stunning, and in February when I visited, lush and green. Best of all, it’s hardly touched by tourism.

It’s as if you have stepped back in time, yet there’s plenty to do including zip-lining, some fabulous cave systems to explore, a nature reserve with giant tortoises, snorkelling in the lagoon and so much more.

Crescent Head in Australia is one of the best places along the coast to surf, yet despite its popularity retains its humble, charming character.

I’ve always enjoyed the stark juxtaposition of the rocky bluffs with the green golf course from the lookout, but seeing it from 400ft up for the first time was breath taking.

The waves roll in slow motion and the fingers of rocks are given a whole new context as they reach out into the ocean.
