We know that as the wonderful New Year begins, you are also planning more trips for your 2019 travels. And, as it is a new beginning, maybe it’s time for you to begin new travel habits with these travel tips. Check them out!

 

1. Book your flight and hotel first!

Travel smart while having fun with these travel tips for your 2019 travels | Travelling for 2019 | Travel141

Of course! You have to do the important things like booking flights and hotel rooms of which country you will be heading to. Whether it is a hotel or a resort, let Travel 141 guide you to the best hotels and resorts in Asia! You also might want to apply for travel insurance. This will help you feel secure and safe as you travel to different places.

 

2. Research then plan

Travel smart while having fun with these travel tips for your 2019 travels | Travelling for 2019 | Travel141

When choosing places to visit in Asia, doing research is a must especially when planning an itinerary.  You can group attractions that are near to your hotel on one day and the places that will take you an hour or more from your hotel on another day. You also have to research on which mode of transportations is convenient and safe.

 

3. Familiarize yourself with the surroundings and language

Travel smart while having fun with these travel tips for your 2019 travels | Travelling for 2019 | Travel141

Travellers nowadays are very lucky because mobile phones make it easy to do virtually anything. From finding hotel locations to translating languages, you can do it on your phone. But of course, before travelling for 2019, it’s wise to read up on local culture and area to know which place to tick off your list first. It’s also a must that you know a few basic words and phrases to make it easier to communicate with the locals.

 

4. Exchange currency in advance

Travel smart while having fun with these travel tips for your 2019 travels | Travelling for 2019 | Travel141

Next tip on our list of travel tips is to make sure you exchange currency in advance. Even if you think those credit cards can save you from all your travel expenses including food, entrance fees, and shopping, it’s still important to stack some cash in your wallet.

 

5. Pack clothes that are suitable for your destination

Travel smart while having fun with these travel tips for your 2019 travels | Travelling for 2019 | Travel141

You don’t wear jackets in tropical countries like Thailand or Philippines, don’t ya? Or, wear tank tops to South Korea or Japan on a winter season? You’ll look weird not only to the locals but to other travellers too. Make sure to know the weather when you’re visiting so you know which kind of clothes to pack. Then again, try to pack light if you plan to go on several shopping sprees.

 

6. Bring a backpack or a tiny purse

Travel smart while having fun with these travel tips for your 2019 travels | Travelling for 2019 | Travel141

Adventure travellers and solo backpackers can relate to this! You don’t need to bring your huge, luxurious Gucci bag if you want to enjoy hiking or walking. Make sure you pack a bag or backpack that can store all your basic essentials when you’re out and about. Doing this will spare you from the hassle of lugging around a big bag especially if you plan to take the bus or train.

 

7. Make some local friends

Travel smart while having fun with these travel tips for your 2019 travels | Travelling for 2019 | Travel141

You know what’s the best thing about travelling to different places? You can make many friends! This is why it’s good to practice your English and learn basic greetings. When you make local friends, you’ll surely have fresh news on the latest trends that are happening in their country so you could make more interesting travel plans and ideas the next time you visit them.

 

8. Have fun and enjoy your travel!

Travel smart while having fun with these travel tips for your 2019 travels | Travelling for 2019 | Travel141

Never forget that the reason you travel is to have fun and enjoy every single moment of your vacation. Don’t stick your nose on your travel plans too much or on what time should you be on your next attraction to visit when you have just already arrived at the first place in your list. Now go and make more memories!

 

Bonus: Hire a private car with a driver

For a more convenient travel experience, you can also rent a private car with a driver. Travel 141 International Car Rental Services will be launching soon to help you ride in comfort to your destination.

Tasmania Travel Guide: Fall In Love With Australia’s Island State

Tasmania Travel Guide: Reasons to Fall In Love With Australia’s Sole Island | Tasmania Travel Guide | Travel141

When we ask people where to go in Australia, most of them would say Melbourne, Sydney or Brisbane. What we often forget about Australia is there’s a lesser-known but fast-growing tourist destination in Australia that deserves the spotlight, too. Tasmania, Australia’s smallest state, is definitely worth a visit because of the completely different vibe it gives. Curious to know what this island holds that makes people fall in love with it? Keep reading our Tasmania travel guide!

MONA (MUSEUM OF OLD AND NEW ART)

Photo from mona.net.au (one of the hallways that you will see in the museum)

The Museum of Old and New Art (MONA), which opened in 2011, is one of the places that helped Tasmania get the attention of tourists all over the world. With a collection ranging from ancient Egyptian mummies to some of the most infamous art in the world like a Cloaca Professional that mimics the human digestive system, the MONA is said to be the most controversial museum you will ever see because of its diverse collection.

THE VIBE

Tasmania Travel Guide: Reasons to Fall In Love With Australia’s Sole Island | Tasmania Travel Guide | Travel141

Probably one of the reasons why Tasmania is one of the top places to visit in Australia is because unlike other states, Tasmania can both give you the city and laid-back vibe. Although it has a bustling city like Hobart, there are also lots of quiet places you can find for some alone time. You can stroll around uncrowded beaches, engage yourself in water activities or shop at Hobart’s Salamanca Market. Indeed, Tasmania offers tourists a sense of balance when it comes to activities and attractions.

THE INCREDIBLE FOOD

Tasmania Travel Guide: Reasons to Fall In Love With Australia’s Sole Island | Tasmania Travel Guide | Travel141

One of the greatest things about Tasmania is how they make your gastronomical journey worthwhile. When you’re in Tasmania, don’t miss the seafood and wine or whiskey – the best gourmet food and drinks Tasmania has to offer. There are actually lots of vineyards in Tasmania like Bangor Vineyard Shed. Also, if you’re wondering which one is the best seafood restaurant, consider reserving a table at Blue Eye.

PICTURESQUE VIEWS

Tasmania Travel Guide: Reasons to Fall In Love With Australia’s Sole Island | Tasmania Travel Guide | Travel141

Of course, one of the reasons why people love Tasmania is because of the magnificent views it offers wherever you go. Whether you go up the mountain to get a view of the wineglass bay, stroll around the uncrowded beaches or just have a cruise around its waters, you’re guaranteed a postcard-worthy photo every time.

INTERESTING WILDLIFE

Tasmania Travel Guide: Reasons to Fall In Love With Australia’s Sole Island | Tasmania Travel Guide | Travel141

Australia is known for having many rare animal species and one of these can be found only in Tasmania. This animal is called the Tasmanian devil, the largest carnivorous marsupial. If you are thinking about the cartoon, yes it is based from this animal but it isn’t big as a human or swirls like a tornado in real life. Beware still, they are small but their bite is powerful.

PEOPLE & CULTURE

Tasmania Travel Guide: Reasons to Fall In Love With Australia’s Sole Island | Tasmania Travel Guide | Travel141

Aside from Tasmania attractions, one of the things that draw people to Tasmania is their culture. There’s something about the people and the surroundings in Tasmania that makes it stand out from other states in Australia. Even though they are isolated, they love to socialize with people. Thus, they celebrate different festivals like music and cultural festivals like Cygnet Folk Festival and The Falls Festival each year to entice tourists.

SMALL BUT PACKED WITH ATTRACTIONS

Tasmania Travel Guide: Reasons to Fall In Love With Australia’s Sole Island | Tasmania Travel Guide | Travel141

One of the advantages of Tasmania is its size and it is, therefore, easier to explore. But even though this island is small, you have a long list of things to do in Tasmania. Don’t worry if you don’t have an itinerary because driving around or having a road trip if you have a private transfer service could let you discover places on the island. Plus, it’s a great way to explore and discover places by yourself! Nevertheless, a private car rental might be considered too.

FRESH AIR AND CLEAN WATER

Tasmania Travel Guide: Reasons to Fall In Love With Australia’s Sole Island | Tasmania Travel Guide | Travel141

The best part about having a Tasmania travel is breathing its fresh air and drinking its pure water. When we say fresh, it is literally fresh and said to be the cleanest air in the world. The water in Tasmania is so pure that it is being shipped to Australian athletes participating in the Olympics.

There are many more reasons to fall in love with this island but we’ll leave it up to you to discover! We hope this Tasmania travel guide would make you want to visit the island soon! If you want to know more about Australia or any other places in Asia, check out our other blogs below.
