Travelling does wonders for your soul. Whether you are going on a holiday alone or with your closest friends, you will discover plenty of things while on a trip. Some of them may be good and worthy of acknowledgement, while negative ones may need improvement.
To gain confidence in yourself while travelling, look for these things in your destination:
As a beginner traveller, you will want to start with a small destination such as Singapore. The influx of tourists makes it a good choice because it will be easy to find good places to go in Singapore to make the most of your trip. And yes, it is not recommended to just go to the popular spots, but when you are dipping your toe into travelling, these are the best places to start. There will be guides ready to help, and other tourists are there to make you feel less nervous about being in an unfamiliar location.
Opportunities to Talk to Locals
They say it takes courage to travel; what you may not realise is that travelling also helps you become more courageous. Bridge the gap between cultures while getting over your fear of talking to strangers. Start with simple conversations and be prepared with useful Singaporean phrases, such as asking for directions instead of being lost for hours. Ask about popular restaurants or even inquire about a famous landmark. Once you are more comfortable, engage in more meaningful conversations that help you learn the culture.
Places that Serve the Local Cuisine
Another way to learn the culture is by eating their local good. Singapore, for instance, is known for hawker culture. You will not run out of food options, no matter the time of day. Think the food is weird? Try a small bite first! As long as you are not allergic to any ingredient (ask before you taste), it adds to your experience.
Everyone starts somewhere. Now is the time for you to get started on your travelling plans to enrich your life.
