2. Store Important Addresses & Contacts Ahead Of Time
Create a mail with a compilation of all the the local addresses you will visit on your trip (hotels, attractions, offices, etc) and send this to yourself as well a couple of friends, and family members. This serves the dual purpose of saving energy and time involved in planning your logistics. Additionally, when you share this information with others, it will help them track you, if at all required.

3. Opt For Comfortable Clothes
Wearing an Indian saree for mountain climbing will not be a great idea, right? Similarly, every destination may have a dress code that must be adhered to. Before packing for your trip, always take into account the culture and mindset of the people living there. This not only shows respect towards the community and tradition, but also helps you blend in with the crowd.

4. Research About The Place You Are Travelling To
‘Research’ because that is the most basic thing to do. Having basic knowledge of the destination will only help you interact and understand the locals and culture better. Also, go through the map and try to gain knowledge about where the airport, train stations and bus stops are located.
