1. Overthinking is such a waste of time.
Don’t take too much time to decide on a destination. You are not been to every place around, So, first try to cover the tried and tested once. There are many places you must have heard about from your friends and relatives, just take some advice simple!
2. Look for Last minute deals.

3. Talk to Locals.
Who will better tell you about the city than its natives? Let the locals be your guide and ask them about the major tourist attractions, best foods and activities available and things which even a tour guides might not be able to tell you. And of course no harm in talking when you are surrounded by good-looking people…right?
4. Don’t stand out of the crowd.
Try to be properly dressed for the place and avoid looking like Jack sparrow or Willy Wonka to locals. It might make it difficult for you to break the ice with locals and could also result in unwanted attention.
5. Take the road less taken.
Take out some time to explore the place which doesn’t come under the category of “Tourist Attractions” be it local markets, Parks or restaurants. These places are comparatively cheaper for shopping and eating out. Who knows? You might end up finding something really awesome.
So next time you plan a trip Keep your checklist with you.
