Regardless of where you are traveling to, it is important that you stick to basic rules to keep yourself. It is easy to get excited and carried away by your vacation that is coming up but we all know the key to having a happy and fun filled time is pre planning the journey can certainly help achieve that. Pre planning the journey is extremely helpful especially when visiting a new country. There is host of things that should be checked before your journey like making sure your finances are sorted out and in order and ensuring you have packed in everything necessary.
The first on the list should be ensuring your passport and visa is both valid and updated. Some of the countries will want your visa to be valid for at least six months after our departure date so check your passport and visa and update them accordingly. Passport applications take a couple of weeks to process so make sure you allocate time early to get it done in time for your journey. If you intend to rent a car once you reach your destination check if your international driver’s license is an accepted standard or if not what requirements need to be achieved. Check up on the internet on the crime rate surrounding the area and what areas and roads should be avoided and during what times. Before planning your meals during your stay in the country, research on the internet for restaurant offers in Dubai that can help you have a grand meal for less than the usual cost you would have to pay.
If you are visiting any attractions in the city look around for Dubai 2 for 1 vouchers that can help you enjoy the trip with a significantly less expenditure.
Some countries have widespread disease so it is recommended that you check with your local physician about potential vaccinations and also check if any of your prescription drugs are illegal in the country you are going to. If you do require regular medication pack medicine for more than your stay, because it could be hard to get the required drugs from an unknown place. Another obvious thing is to avoid carrying your jewelry as this could cause you to be targeted by thieves who specialize in robbing tourists. If you do have to bring any jewelry with you, make sure you keep them safe at all time or lock them up in the safe given by the hotel. Study about the culture of the country you are visiting and adhere by their rules and regulations to have a safe journey.
