However, don’t over-pack by carrying things that you might not use during the trip. What’s more, if you intend to buy gifts or souvenirs at your destination, leave space for carrying them.

Plan ahead

Also decide whether you will use a travel agency or travel on your own. Conduct extensive research on your destination to avoid troubles. Additionally, carry cash or a credit card to use while traveling.
