We are still living in a pandemic world, and our lives are somehow in some kind of stand-by. But that doesn’t mean we have to stay quiet and don’t make any plans. To be honest, and to keep our minds working well, we should continue making plans for all kinds of things! Buy a car, buy a house, get back to studies, change our job and, of course, plan that trip to one country from our bucket list! And if Asia is one of those countries, I say that you should start planning it as soon as possible. Probably it will take some time till we can freely travel to whatever we want, but Asia is a very particular country. Despite it having wonderful places to see and people to meet, there are many things that can completely ruin your so desired trip. Got curious? If yes, and if traveling to Asia is a must-do trip, read this article and know what to avoid when traveling to Asia.
1. You Don’t Need To Learn Their Language
One mistake that people make before traveling to Asia is learning their language to avoid misunderstandings. But, trust me, this may be the worst thing you can do. First, Asia has a lot of different languages and dialects, and learning them is quite difficult. Second, unless you go to a very remote village, most people know English, and despite some little things, everyone will understand what you want. But trying to use their language may result in offenses, even if you don’t know that you did it. Even hand gestures may be better for you than trying to use their words.
2. Taking The Entire Wardrobe With You
Some people like to go prepared for any kind of weather. Even if they’re traveling to Asia during summer, they’ll take some warmer clothes “just in case it gets cold.” That’s a mistake you really should avoid when traveling to Asia. You see, Asia countries have a lot to offer, and clothes and other items at a reduced price is one of them. Other than this, you don’t want to be carrying a big and heavy suitcase through a couple of miles in a highly populated city. Just take the essentials with you and buy the rest at your destination.
