Also, those who are currently on a bus or train using free wifi or maybe waiting for your flight sitting at the airport in one of the lounges and totally missed out planning earlier somehow.
Friends Traveller doesn’t want to waste your time for reading a lengthy article.
so just scroll down quickly to see how and what you should do to travel in a day.
we assume you are arriving in the morning, here are few basic things to follow.
understand your location
whenever you arrive in a city you must be found yourself at the airport, main or secondary train station, or any of the bus terminals. don’t get panic and do not hurry up things. take a deep breath and maybe enjoy a morning coffee at the nearest cafe before travel.
It’s very important to look around and read the atmosphere, look at people, roads, colors, weather etc. it will help you in getting comfortable with the environment of the city.
Get a map
Your next step is to mark your favorite locations in the city, for that you need a map.
We know that nowadays people are very comfortable with a lot of online-offline Mobile applications. but sometimes you find yourself without wifi, cellular network or your battery might drain out. it will make your day harder.
Friends Traveller recommend you to get the map at any of the nearest tourism office or maybe just tourist information kiosk at any major railway station or airport, sometimes it’s hard to find at bus terminals.
Plan your day
On a Map, mark locations, including starting and ending points. take your time for marking as its going to be very important for rest of the day.
Do mark out closest Subway/Metro stations. it will help you to manage time, and always be sure to save an hour extra to reach your departure location.
sometimes you find yourself in the middle of transport strike which can make your travel taste bitter.
Things to keep in mind
Most important part is to not to visit everywhere in the city, running will make you tired, which you do not want until the day’s end. remember that, not everything requires a visit.
Do walk a little between close attractions, famous streets, shopping area, historic center, it is worth your time.
We understand photos are important but do spend some time just appreciating the city, and remember to taste some local cuisine. there is always enough time for these in your travel.
Do not pack up too many things in your bag because you might need nothing, also keep some space for souvenirs
If you are traveling with a luggage, you can try to find luggage storage facility at major stations
We consider that an hour is enough to visit an attraction if you want to maximize your travel,
we will come up with detailed articles about it later.
Important: take care of your money and important belongings every time, nowhere is always safe.
Happy traveling and share your experience with us 🙂
