• Consult your doctor before going on a trip to discuss about your health, medications, and vaccinations to be taken.
• Prepare a list of places to be visited and items to be purchased either for self or for giving as gifts to friends and relatives.

• Note the shopping hours and visiting hours of tourist spots.
• Select a good tour guide carefully.
• Avoid dangerous and risky places and shortcuts. Do not move alone, especially at nights.
