Anyone can give me tips for international trips?

rafeedeen, your question is impossible to answer. There are thousands and thousands of possible international trips from countless destinations all over the world. You need to give way more information before anyone could offer an opinion.

Where do you live... what is your nationality... what is your travel experience... what are your interests and like/dislikes... what is your budget... how long do you wish to be abroad... etc.

Good luck with your research.

I think the best way to have a succesfull trip is to talk more than you do on your own country!

If you talk with lot of people you'll learn a lot about the place and their own culture

To have a full enjoyable experience, you should familiarize yourself with the customs of the country that you are visiting. Every country has different customs which may seem strange to you. If you know and honor their customs, you will have great travel experiences. I cannot specify a particular country because you did not provide information on you destination desires or interest, but this concept applies equally to all countries.

Have you been to Thailand?

About a million Indian tourists visit Thailand each year. Many single guys go to visit forbidden nightlife and drink a lot. (They they go home and embellish on what they really did!) Sometimes these guys share expensive hotel rooms. (After 2 people check in the other 4 or 5 sneak in.)

Some big family groups also visit Thailand. The more people in your group the harder it is to get hotel rooms that either fit everyone in legally or even everyone in the same hotel. Best is one or two people only or a couple and one kid. Highest priced hotel rooms from late November to early February. If you schedule a flight that lands after midnight and before 6 a.m. you still pay full price for a hotel room beginning the day before. Also you will usually pay more for transportation for "middle of the night" arrivals.

Many tourists from India only stay for about a week in Thailand. Don't make their mistake and try to schedule more things than you have time for.

Most foreign tourists who visit Thailand buy their own flights, book their own hotel rooms using their computer. You can visit a travel agency in your hometown and see what they can do for you. When you do your research for hotels and other information use a full size computer. Easier to research travel forums for hotel help and other advice when you can pull up several windows and compare prices and locations.

You must plan out a budget and know how much per day you can afford for hotel rooms, eating, tours and local transportation AFTER paying for round trip flights. Then you can do your research or ask for hotel help in your price range.

You can always use a simple Google check for quick basic information but this research works best with a regular computer. For any country you have an interest check the airline websites for cost of round trip to the primary city. The cost of your plane tickets is your first expense to consider.

You can also buy a travel guide and go by their advice for hotels and things to see, etc. Some travel guides have hotel advice too.

(If you do go to Switzerland plan on at least a couple weeks in Europe. But expect higher day to day costs than visiting many Asian countries nearer India. With one exception Singapore! It can get cold in Switzerland too!)

"That's rather a lot of Thailand info for someone asking about Switzerland, karazyal. You feeling okay?"

I feel fine. The guy started off with a rather vague question in his opening post. (Tips for trips!) After writing something I noticed he said Switzerland I said screw it and hit send with the addendum added.

(From post one.)

"Anyone can give me tips for international trips?"

I gave him something he can do easier and cheaper if his time is short and on a tight budget.

I live in Thailand for a good part of the year. I think there is around a million Indian tourists who visit each year. But they mostly stay for only 5 to 7 days.

He can still go to Switzerland! Buy some chocolate, a cuckoo clock and roll in the snow!
