This is the most important part of travelling. Planning where you wanna go and who you want to be with.
a. Research about the place. Check the tourist spots you wanna see. Know the culture, weather, religion and delicacies (:D).
b. Look for travel buddies. It will make your travel expenses cheaper and more fun! Travel with someone you are comfortable with. The ideal group for travelling is 4, 8, 10 or 12. It will help you cut down your travel expenses. Hotel rooms, tricycle, car, van usually accommodates 4, 8, 10 or 12 persons.
2. Know your budget!
3. Pack light
Avoid excess baggage, bring only the necessary things that you need.
Tips on packing:
a. Bring a sarong. This is very convenient, you can use it as a towel, blanket, mat, an accessory. 😀
b. Ziplock your clothes and valuables! I usually packed my clothes per day. For example, the clothes that I will wear on the second day are placed in a ziplock so when I need it, I can easily get it.
4. Bring enough money. ATM’s are around the country but never rely on these machines. Have enough money.
5. Bring your camera! To capture the moment!
6. Put your valuables in a safe place.
7. Bring some medicines like paracetamol, loperamide. etc.
