Other Travel Tips
When traveling overseas, learning a few words and phrases of the native language goes a long way to forging a bond with the people with whom you interact. Being able to say, "Please" and "Thank you" in the native tongue shows a willingness to try to communicate and, almost always, will yield a positive response. Packing light is advisable for any destination. A good rule is to never pack more than you can carry yourself. Porters, especially overseas, may be difficult to find, and train travel becomes near to impossible when lugging numerous suitcases.
