You don't have to dress up, but you should probably adhere to a few simple guidelines. Don't even think about using a fanny pack or a bum bag at all. In no way, shape or form. Tourists are at risk because they are easy to steal from, and the worst part is that they are so ugly.
Consider Your Personal Wardrobe
White socks, white sneakers, and a baseball cap can
all be left at home for North Americans. If you want to be treated fairly, it's a good idea to avoid the stereotypes associated with certain groups.
Traveling with an SUAV is an excellent option. Despite their light weight, flexibility, and comfort, their footwear still manages to look stylish. For a limited time, take 15% off your entire order by using the code TravelDudes15.
It's all about the money!
What is the appropriate amount of money to bring, and how should it be presented? If you want to keep things simple, leave the traveler's checks and large bills at home. As a substitute, bring your ATM card and withdraw cash as needed.
In order to avoid hefty transaction fees, you should only withdraw a few hundred dollars at a time. However, if you lose your money or are robbed, it won't be the end of your life. Today, almost all major cities and most major airports are connected. If you're a first-time traveler, don't worry about cash withdrawals if you're going to be in or passing through an airport.
Third, your budget is going to go awry
Any journey, whether it lasts two weeks or a year, costs more than you anticipated, no matter how meticulously you budget. It doesn't matter if you're mailing things back, replacing stolen goods, or booking expensive tours...
The nature of dealing with the unexpected is that you may find the least expensive places are that way for a reason, or you may simply take home a slew of souvenirs. Most importantly, don't get upset if something ends up costing more than you anticipated. In the end, it's just a matter of time. Even if you aren't rich, there are countless resources on the Internet for finding work abroad.)
Research Only for the Purpose of Providing Information.
The thrill of planning a getaway is one of the best parts of taking a trip. As a result, read as many blogs as you can (There will be a lot, wherever you are going.) Purchase or obtain a guidebook to help you plan your trip. Take a look around online discussion boards. Look up videos of some of your intended destinations on YouTube.
You'll be an expert on a place you've never been in no time. In other words, don't start planning or making an itinerary, or expecting to know what's going on. All of that will be thrown out of the window the moment you set foot on the premises.
Neither online nor printed information is as good or current as that which you can get from the traveler's circuit, so no amount of preparation is sufficient to withstand reality. As a result, it's worthwhile to stay in a hostel at least a couple of times in order to hear from others who are doing the same thing as you and to get advice from them.
