The first step to a hassle-free trip anywhere is planning ahead of time. If you want to go to Asia, here's what you need to do:
• If it's your first time, get a travel agent. But if you have taken Asian trips before, you can skip this and have your own itinerary.
• Find out the season and the possible weather conditions at your destination.
• If you don't have insurance, get one that covers medical emergencies in your destination.
• Find out if there are ATM networks at your destination, and if establishments honor credit cards.
There is no excuse to early planning when you travel abroad. Consider money, time, and effort. Your Asian trip should be guilt-free and fun.
