Phuket Travel Tours: How to prepare for your vacation trip
What makes travelling exciting are the people you meet and the endless possibilities that can happen as soon as you leave your comfort zone. These experiences can be both good and bad so you must know how to deal with them. Don’t let minor inconveniences spoil the fun by preparing the following:
Secure your travel documents
The most important thing you should take care of is the necessary documents for travelling. Make physical and digital copies of your passport, licenses, reservation receipts, IDs and other essential documents and put them in the safest place in your luggage. Do not pack the original copies with the duplicate documents so that you have a backup in case you lose them.
Make a list of emergency contacts
Write down the contact information of people you can rely on in case of an emergency. In case something happens to you, especially if you’re travelling alone, people will know who to contact. Always bring this with you wherever you go and keep another one in your bag.
Learn basic phrases
Teach yourself how to say simple words and phrases in the language of the country you’re visiting. This can make interacting with the locals easier and more fun. You don’t have to master the proper tone and pronunciation of the words but try your best to sound comprehensible.
The locals wouldn’t mind if your grammar and pronunciation are not perfect. Most of the time, they appreciate it when tourists make efforts in learning their language when visiting their country.
Aside from this, knowing the basic phrases can help you when ordering food, shopping or asking for directions.
Prepare emergency cash
It is safer and more convenient to use credit cards, debit cards or other online payment methods when making transactions. You can easily run to the nearest ATM if you need cash. However, there may be instances where your destination does not have an ATM in the vicinity or none of your cards works in the machine.
Read up on the place you’re visiting
Do a bit of research on the culture and traditions of the city or country you plan to visit. Familiarise yourself with the basic rules and etiquette to leave a great impression on your hosts and to avoid conflicts and misunderstandings.
