Don’t Over Pack

We pack unnecessary things thinking that we may need these on the trip. To avoid this make sure you have a checklist. Pack clothes that you can mix n match. For example carry two denims and three-four T-shirts. Pack only one or two pair of shoes which are necessary. Carry at least one pair of trekking shoes.

Use Public Transportation

Go for public transportation like local bus, train or metro as this is safer than private cab or taxi. While travelling in night share the taxi or cab no with any friend or family member. It’s always better to be alert on an unknown city.
