Travel Tips: A Beginner’s Guide to Traveling

5 tips that can make your trip a pleasant and memorable experience

1. Wake Up Early:
Rise up early to have the best attractions all to yourself while avoiding crowds. It’s also a great time for photos, and usually easier to interact with locals. Remote areas are less dangerous too in the morning hours. Honest hardworking people wake up early; touts, scammers, and criminals sleep in.

2. Gather local travel info before you go:
It is always a good idea to gather local information before you travel to avoid pricey last-minute trips or ending up stranded in the hotel. Also, if you plan to explore beyond the hotspots of your destination, then pick and plan your must-sees and transport before you go. iCityZoom has a comprehensive list of must-sees, along with ideas for accommodation and dining. It’s map based services can guide you around the city.

3. Travel Light:
The importance of packing light cannot be overemphasized, but, for your own good, I’ll try. You’ll never meet a traveler who, after five trips, brags: “Every year I pack heavier.” The measure of a good traveler is how light he or she travels. You can’t travel heavy, happy, and cheap.

4. Buy Stuff at your Destination:
Take only a couple of pairs of pants, shirts, shorts, underwear and basic toiletries to last a couple of days in your carryon. A good idea would be to check iCityZoom’s shopping gallery which provides you with a plethora of information on places to shop.

5. Consider car hire alternatives:
Before you book car hire for your holidays, don’t forget to consider the alternatives. Unnecessary car hire can be an expensive, unused hindrance. Public transport or even taking your own car may work out cheaper for some destinations. Go through this checklist first: Look into public transport. Check taxi prices. If you plan to spend most of your time topping up your tan rather than traveling, a few taxi rides may be cheaper.
