How can you benefit ?

From just having fun to see this world in video format (videos of gods, flowing rivers, forts, mountains, locations one can visit in their country or in other countries during vacations) to serious understanding of social issues in your country or in other countries, the key question everyone has is : How can I benefit from visiting ? Is it waste of my time or it adds value & knowledge to my life or tells me precautions to take in case of disasters ?
