Packing
Travel light! Get a good backpack and pack only those that are absolutely essential. The backpack will come handy and will save you lot of money when you carry the bag yourself instead of asking for a porter. When you carry only a backpack, you will not pack lot of unwanted things. A light backpack will also allow you to trek a lot more and, therefore, save money.

Instead of taking cash, carry your credit card. It is advisable to carry two credit cards because when you start buying many things, your credit card company may think the card is stolen, and may block it, leaving you moneyless in a foreign land! Simple things matter, like carrying a bottle of water with you will save money on soft drinks and on buying expensive mineral water while you travel.

    My 2c tip…
    Use ride sharing services!! For example:

    Saves you money and you make great new friends!

    Other places to find ride share services are standard classifed services (e.g. craigslist, gumtree)
