Travel in Groups

During your time abroad, traveling in groups can be a great idea. Whether it's sightseeing or simply walking around the city, exploring the city with your class mates offers you the chance to get better acquainted with each other.

Get a Local Number

A local number is a blessing in more ways than just one. Not only can you track your location if you lose your way, but you can also reach out to friends and seek help in times of a crisis.

Don't Make Yourself Out to Be a Visitor

Being all touristy makes you stand out as an out of towner. Wearing excessive jewellery and dressing inappropriately will only likely draw attention to yourself. Try and be more like a local, blend in with the culture and have fun while you do it.

Money Matters

You never know when you may be in need of cash, so ensure that you always have some walking around money with you. For safety purposes, you can also open an account with the local bank, this way not only is your money safe, but you won't have to worry about leaving it lying around.

Stay Alert

While everyone enjoys the thrill of experiencing life in a new country, it is important to be aware of your surroundings. When alone, stay on busy streets and be sure to inform your family and friends of your whereabouts at all times.

Public Transportation

When living in a new city, make use of the public transportation facilities available when traveling to and fro. Keep yourself updated with the local train and bus schedules and avoid getting into taxis or buses that are not registered with the city.
