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.
