Bagaimana hendak bermula sebagai solo backpacker

blog
Ramai orang hendak cuba travel secara solo atau solo backpackpacker. Tidak ada masalah kerana solo backpacker sangat mencabar dan menyeronokan jika kita tahu caranya. Untuk langkah pertama nak cuba travel secara solo kenapa tak cuba dalam negara dulu. Saya pernah ke Kuching selama 4 hari dan rezeki pada malam terakhir ada orang belanja makan burger. Saya pernah ke Miri - Brunei - Labuan secara solo. Jika anda ada rasa was-was atau ragu-ragu ketika berjalan secara solo, perasaan itu akan sama berlaku jika anda travel secara solo di negara orang.Saya selalu mengambil langkah berhati-hati seperti tidak lalu di lorong gelap atau sunyi dan juga selalu memastikan tiada orang follow kita dari belakang. Jika kita travel secara solo dia asia tenggara maybe kurang sikit perhatian kerana muka orang...

Passenger arrival card

 Jika kita travel mana-mana country pasti kita akan berjumpa dengan 'passenger arrival card' atau  'disembarkation card' atau 'landing card' atau pelbagai nama kad mengikut negara masing-masing sama ada by flight, train atau apa jua kenderaan  apabila kita akan 'cross border' negara orang. Kad ini amat penting bagi 'immigration department' untuk simpanan data mereka seperti statistik pelancong masuk dan keluar ke negara mereka. Lagi satu sebagai rekod pengesanan data pelancong yang masuk ke negara mereka in case if anything happen senang mereka nak trace pelancong. Photo Copyright by globalsingapore. Sebenarnya bukan saya nak cerita tentang 'passenger arrival card' tetapi tips hendak tulis alamat yang kita akan duduk di negara tersebut pada kad tersebut. Biasanya sebe
How to make your flight attendant like you

How to make your flight attendant like you

Article
  Maybe you don't want to please your cabin crew next time you fly. I know, I know, it's their job to be nice, you're the customer, they're the employee. But if you're good to them, they may be extra nice. So here's how to charm them. 1. Say hi back. If a flight attendant greets you upon boarding, don't just ignore them. A simple "good morning" or "good evening" does it. How would you like to greet 20 people in a row and be greeted by silence? That's what usually happens. 2. Listen to the safety demo. It's just polite. Put down your iPad and Kindle. When was the last time you really listened? If it was more than a few years ago, it's time for a refresher. At the very least, don't talk loudly to your neighbor when a flight attendant is standing in front of...
Advice for Women Travelling Alone

Advice for Women Travelling Alone

Article
The temptation of travelling alone offers countless possibilities and opportunities for adventure and is becoming more popular than ever before - and the number of women opting for solo trips in recent years has increased even more sharply than the number of men. Around 45% of solo travellers are now women - a sign of the times undoubtedly, and an encouraging one for those with a thirst for adventure but a fear of the big unknown   A slightly less encouraging statistic however, is that 79% of those lone female travellers would prefer to have a companion but have no choice. But is the glass half full here or half empty? Should we bemoan the fact that with independence comes loneliness, or instead celebrate the fact that more people than ever now simply decide to go off and

Embarking on a six-month or year-long adventure often can mean taking a leap of faith and leaving key responsibilities behind, like arranging for an extended leave of absence or resigning from a job. But those that have done it say the experience is more than worth it. We sought out some of those brave, inspirational souls on the question-and-answer site Quora.com, asking: “what should I know if I want to quit my job, leave everything behind and travel for a year?” From the logistics of planning such a trip to the difficulty of managing others’ expectations and re-entering the workforc

WHY YOU SHOULD TRAVEL YOUNG

WHY YOU SHOULD TRAVEL YOUNG

Muiz @ Perhentian (Photo credit: Anan Amri) As I write this, I’m flying. It’s an incredible concept: to be suspended in the air, moving at two hundred miles an hour — while I read a magazine. Amazing, isn’t it? I woke up at three a.m. this morning. Long before the sun rose, thirty people loaded up three conversion vans and drove two hours to the San Juan airport. Our trip was finished. It was time to go home. But we were changed. As I sit, waiting for the flight attendant to bring my ginger ale, I’m left wondering why I travel at all. The other night, I was reminded why I do it — why I believe this discipline of travel is worth all the hassle. I was leading a missions trip in Puerto Rico. After a day of work, as we were driving back to the church where we were staying, one o

Independent Vacationing for the Novice

Arranging your own vacation can be a little daunting if you’ve always placed your annual trip in the hands of a competent travel agent. Before, all you had to do was to select the country and resort, get yourself to the airport on the right date and at the right time, and the rest was taken care of for you. You were probably met at your destination airport by the tour operator’s representative who then escorted you to your resort, and, at the end of your vacation, you just needed to be ready and waiting for the return coach journey to the airport. The sense of reassurance this can give has always gone some way to help vacationers enjoy their trip: there’s never been any worry about how to get from the airport to the hotel, how to cope with a broken toilet once there, or how to buy ticket
