Travel tips
For an extraordinary experience bear the following in mind:
  • Avoid tourist-type restaurants if you want to absorb some local culture. If you cannot read the menu, opt for the daily specials that are recommended and explained.
  • Watch the world go by over a relaxing picnic lunch in a park or stock up on snacks at a supermarket or deli.
  • Buy a guidebook and take yourself on a personal tour. Many expensive guided tours cannot offer more than a good guidebook.
  • Fit in with the culture - eat and drink what's local and in season. It's cheaper, fresher and more fun.
  • Learn local idiosyncrasies. It will earn you respect, save your money, make you streetwise and smooth your travel experience.
  • Eat at museum cafés, coffee-shops and small pubs (which offer less intimidating meal options for the single traveller than big restaurants) or order room service.
  • Use local transport. Buses are a great way to see a city.
  • Dress and act appropriately in the country you are visiting. Ignoring or overstepping cultural boundaries will make you no friends.
  • Do at least one thing to make your experience memorable and personal, even if you're on a quick business trip.
  • Keep a record of your flight details, travellers cheques and bank cards as well as copies of your tickets, passport and other important documentation. Leave a set at home and keep copies with you, separate from the original documentation. This is invaluable if anything is lost or stolen.
Be prepared

  • Check that your passport does not expire while you are abroad.
