Travel Tips to Manila

Planning is a good way when travelling, either domestically or internationally, but do not disregard the fact that things can and most likely would not go as planned. This could either be due to suddenly the activity you want to do is unavailable or if more logistical issues force you to think of other ways to do things. Keep in mind that plan is a good base, but when you are travelling, and there are many external factors involved, it will be a different kind of adventure.

1) Stay protected

Throughout this pandemic situation, always keep hygiene when visiting amazing places here. Keep washing your hand, use a hand sanitiser, wear a protective face mask, and dispose of the used mask. This might prevent you from being infected easily. Avoid crowded places too by planning a suitable time before going there.

2) Bring extra credit and ATM cards during your travel

There is a saying that does not keep all your cash with your person when you travel, but that does not mean you should not bring extra cash. Keep extra credit and ATM cards with you when you travel. This will help you when things go wrong, and believe me. It might be. Keeping cards instead of cash with your person is better much safer.
