If you are planning a vacation abroad or within the country, there are quite a few things to keep in mind to make it a successful trip. You can do advance research about the place you are going to visit to know the problems you should be aware of and how to tackle them while there. Your and family’s safety is the most important thing you should be concerned about and we will look at some of the important points which you should follow for a trouble free tour.

Step 1Choose Clothing

Many cultures around the world do not support some type of dressing and you should be aware of those regulations and pack your clothing accordingly. Consult your traveling agent or bureau and get as much information as possible

Step 2Safeguard Money

Thieves are always on the lookout for foreign travelers and you have to protect your money. Store money at different places so that even if you are pick-pocketed, you will have money at other places to use and will not lose all the money.

Step 3Travel in Groups

If possible, best thing is to travel in a group to avoid any type of criminal activity, when you are alone there are more risks. In case you go out in the market, then only stroll around well lift places and avoid going to unknown places.

Step 4Stay Alert of Suspicious People

While traveling in many of the Eastern countries you can wear sunglasses so that you can monitor activities of suspicious people without them knowing about it. Similarly, well-dressed people and senior people could also be part of some criminal racket and you should be wary of that as well.

Step 5Bedbugs in Hotel

Usually hotels are infested by bedbugs and you should look for reddish droppings to know if the room in which you are staying also has the problem or not. Do not unpack all your things and keep the clothes in protective bags as these bugs could also swarm closets.

Step 6Proper Vaccination

In many countries, it is mandatory to get required vaccination before you enter the country. Consult a local medical practitioner in the new country at least two month prior to the journey date so that all the required vaccinations can be taken beforetime.

Step 7Check the Weather

It is very important to know about the weather conditions at the new place so that you can pack clothing accordingly as well as delay your travel if required in case the weather is not suitable for traveling during few particular months.
