  2. Plan out a Budget. Carry the amount of cash which you’ll need. Do keep an extra amount of cash for an emergency but do not carry cash in excess amount. Carrying credit and debit cards is also advisable as they are more safe and convenient.
  3. Have a separate lock section in your suitcase or a separate bag for your valuable items like gold ornaments etc.
  4. Learn to speak these basic words in that country’s language, to make having conversations much easier. Words – Hello, Please, Thank you, Sorry and others which  according to you would be helpful

  1. Do not hurry. Yes, you may be excited about travelling but don’t make the wrong decision.  Do your Research properly about the place you desire to visit and try to save money by booking your tickets a few months before the trip.
  2. Don’t spend too much time in your hotel room. Hotel rooms may be fancy and just like the ideal room, you dream of, Agreed.  But don’t stay there for long. Go out and have fun as much as you can. 
  3. Don’t keep your eyes off from your luggage. Be attentive whenever you’re carrying it.
  4. Don’t visit dangerous or unfamiliar locations especially at night. Planning in advance the places you desire to visit will make it more safe and fun for you.
