Planning a Visit and Travelling Options & Tips for Traveling Abroad

By

When you plan for a trip, it is most natural to first book your tickets and arrange for the visa. We then proceed to make hotel reservations and make arrangements for the money we need to carry with us.We then look at sightseeing and traveling options available either on the Internet, through friends or by consulting a guide. There are some slightly smaller details that we forget to pay attention to.

Currency differences : We often do not convert things when we see them in a foreign country. What you might end up buying might actually be more expensive than that in your country. Moreover, with globalisation, everything is available almost everywhere!

Make sure you visit the embassy of the country you are visiting and ask for any specific rules, information you should have. This will help you prepare better and leave you with fewer surprises.

Take a look at the languages spoken in the country you are visiting. Make sure you have some handbook available which will give you some help. Although most places will have some idea of English, you may still be surprised to be stranded with no one there to understand you.

Read a little about the culture of the country you plan to visit. This will help give you a better idea on the customs and traditions, habits and lifestyle. You will understand the food patterns and clothing styles, hospitality, and expectations of the country you are visiting.

Most importantly, keep an open mind and allow yourself to be flexible enough to adapt yourself to the life of the country you visit. This will give you a chance to experience the place in its own style and manner. Like they say, when in Rome, do as the Romans.

Make a list of important contacts you will need. This should include the embassy of your country located in the country you are visiting, and numbers of other offices that might be necessary.

Always remember to carry small curios or gifts from your country. You might end up meeting or befriending people. Other locals who extend their hospitality or help will also appreciate these small gestures.
