There is no precise rule for booking accommodation for a trip. Indeed probably the perfect trip could take some nights in a classic hotel, others in one of the innovative accommodations, other nights in an apartment or an independent house, or more options. It is, in fact, your itinerary, time and budget that dictates the best type of accommodation for each stage of your travel.
Almost certainly you want to go on excursions to discover the most beautiful places in the country you are visiting. Surely, you would like to do it in the way you prefer, taking into account your spending budget and your available time. In addition to excursions, there are many other types of activities you could do during your trip: sports, entertainment, culture, cuisine, traditions and much more.
