In this high-paced world where time is money and everyone is working for more than 8 hours a day, it gets nearly impossible for finding time for yourself and your loved ones. After a couple of applications and humble requests, you may even get a chance to go on a vacation with your family but is it enough?
Spending time in exploring an unknown place with your loved ones may sound like a good idea but it may not fulfill your desire of wandering. We, Indians travel with strict parameters like only to eat typical Indian meals instead of exploring the unusually tasting regional dishes of the place that we visit.
In order to make sure that you have an unforgettable travelling experience, here are some things which are to be kept in mind while travelling:
We already mentioned about the pre-defined parameters with which we Indians travel for staying in our comfort zone but it is not right. One of such parameter is staying only in star-rated hotels for a comfortable stay. The trick is to stay in hostels and guest houses instead of a labeled hotel room. By staying in a hostel, you will not only make countless friends but will also save a lot of money.
Wherever you go, you must leave your marks and it can be best done by making acquaintances, if not friends. You must make it a point to interact with the locals of the place where you visit. Making random local friends will not only leave a mark but will also help you while wandering the locality.
Instead of staying at an up-notch hotel and visiting only the major tourism hubs, you must become local and explore the locality at a lower-level. By staying local and acting the part, you may also score a handsome discount at the regional-stalls.
You need to interact with the local personals. It is very important for you to ask as many questions as possible about the place you visit. And it will be best replied to, if you ask a native of that place. So, never hesitate in asking questions about something which you do not know.
Around 70 per cent of the families travel only with a pre-booked travel package. But is it the correct way of exploring the unexplored? We doubt! Hotel travel packages stick only to ‘pre-defined’ parameters which will let you explore not even the half of that is there. So, dump your regular travel package and start wandering on your own.
If you visit Thailand then obviously you will not be finding any Dal Makhani over there, yet every Indian would be looking for it. Stop that Indians! You need to try something new, something regional. Isn’t that what you came for?
Respect the locality
Wherever you go, you must respect the locality. You must respect not only the locality and its natives but also their customs, for a better insight to their culture.
Pack basics only
Never pack more than you need, as that is basically what every Indian traveler does. If you carry a lot of luggage then it will just increase the responsibilities and weight on your shoulders, nothing else. You must carry the basics including your woolens.
So, where are you planning to go on the next family-vacation? Irrespective of wherever you go, just make sure that you keep in mind the above listed points for an unforgettable travelling experience.
