Know your destination before you go – Do your research – Canada travel guide


Important tip from the Canada Travel Guide – Learn about the destination that you plan to visit

Find out as much as you can about the country, city or area that you plan to visit. The more prepared you are, the less culture shock you will experience.

Do research on the internet, read travel books, newspapers, magazines, whatever you can and learn about the history, culture, customs and politics.

It is also a good idea to learn a little about the language if possible. Just knowing a few key words like “Hello” or “Where is the washroom” in the other language can help.
