Here are some of our top picks if you are planning to go and spend a bestiemoon with your great pal:

Tokyo, Japan

Tokyo is not your average trip. Planning and going on a vacation with your BFF can be the ultimate adventure. Tour the city’s historic temples and shrines. Then visit the massive food market in central Tokyo where you can buy their specialty Kit Kat flavours. After doing your shopping, visit the Ghibli Museum for some anime fun. Then try their two-to-three-hour bullet train and visit the cities of Nagoya and Kyoto.

Lisbon, Portugal

Lisbon is considered one of the oldest cities in the world and is becoming a favourite tourist attraction among a lot of travellers. There are a lot of things to do in the city, but it does not have the attraction of other European cities that you have to visit their must-see spots which leaves you to travel back-and-forth just to see all the tourist spots. Instead, go to the historic landmarks, the beach, and of course the famous food market where you will the city’s best chefs in one area.

Rome, Italy

Although some may think that Rome is a great location to go with your spouse, you will definitely have fun if you bring your best buddy with you. Enjoy walking the city and visit the major ancient sites like the Colosseum. And of course, your tour to Italy won’t be completed if you do not try the food. Don’t miss Rome’s gelato as well because they are also the best.

travelling with kidsTravelling can be an eye-opening experience for children regardless of age. There are foods to enjoy, the different sights to see, and of course great family time.

However, travelling with kids can be an overwhelming experience especially since you are responsible for packing their things and making sure that you bring all their essentials. There is also the issue of them getting cranky when they get tired, and the unpredictable schedules travelling can bring.

But we want to make travelling for you and your kids easier. So here is our list of the things you should prepare when you travel with kids:

Make a checklist

Before you start packing, create a checklist first which will contain everything you expect to bring inside your luggage. You can create a list for the whole family and check every item you have already packed.

Don’t bring a lot. There is nothing wrong with packing all the things you need, but if you are going on a beach getaway, you can easily buy some of the needed essentials of your kids and they are not actually expensive. This way, you know exactly what type of clothes they need at that time.

Make sure the place is children friendly. There are some places which cater to single people and some for couples. A children friendly hotel will make sure that the kids will happy as they dine at their restaurant even if they become playful.

Involve them in the planning. If you have teenagers, you can involve them with the planning of the trip. The more they know what they can do at the place, the more excited they will become.

Important Things To Prepare Before Travelling Internationally

If you are aiming to travel the world, you need to make sure that you have the right documents with you like your passport and possibly visas. You will also need to have a durable luggage that will not fail you as you explore your destination.

Get your documents in order

You will need to check if your driver’s license is updated and even your ID cards. Also check if your passport is valid for at least six months after planned trips as countries such as Thailand, Vietnam, Russia, and Indonesia make this as a requirement before allowing entry.

International travel also requires a visa depending on the location and duration of the trip so if your destination requires a visa, check the embassy or consulate website first.

Get your vacation dates ready

If you are working but still want to travel, there is still a way to enjoy life travelling. This is by saving vacation days especially if your company pays for these days. Check out if your company buys back unused vacation days so that you can use these days for travelling or health benefits.

Prepare your plastics

Having the best credit card to use for foreign transaction fees will not just prevent foreign transaction fees, but also provide you with the rewards and perks while abroad. Check the different credit card offers in your country and compare which one to bring during your travels.
