Canada is a great holiday destination, with majestic mountains, beautiful winding paths, lush green forests, wildlife and multicultural cities offering visitors a lot of things. Last December, I used Air Canada miles to travel to Canada, which was great. Here, I want to share with you my five best travel tips in Canada.
First tip – buy a quality travel guide:
Traveling with a travel guide is always a big idea when you travel to a foreign country. Canada is no exception. If you don't want to buy a travel guide, you can always find many good travel tips and guides online for printing.
On top of Fodor's Lonely Planet or Rough Guide, you'll find some excellent travel guides for Canada. One good thing about travel guides is that it can provide you with insight into your destination, such as where to go, what to eat, what to drink, what to do and what to see, where to shop, and more. Investment travel guides are not bad and will only help you better understand this place.
The second tip – always consider the climate:
Don't forget to consider the season of your trip before packing your baggage for Canada. If you want to travel to the Maritime Province, you must know that they are dampier than other provinces in the West. In Nova Scotia, Halifax, you may experience summers in temperate climates and freezing winters.
If you live in the mountains of Canada, you will expect to see a large shift in climate. If you stay in the area, please keep your own layering. On the other hand, areas like Victoria and Vancouver are hotter and usually do not see too much freezing temperature.
The third skill – plan to pass:
Traveling to Canada is no longer as easy as it used to be. New restrictions make transit difficult, and the documents needed to travel to Canada always change from time to time. Therefore, it is best to check the documents and confirm that no other items are needed before going to Canada.
The fourth tip – know the currency:
Another important reminder of traveling to Canada is that you should understand the importance of currency before leaving Canada. Canada uses the Canadian dollar, although you can also use the US dollar. It is always wise to carry a Canadian currency traveler’s check because they can accept it anywhere.
Fifth skill – tipping skills:
Remember when you tip in Canada, you need to know how Canadians are grateful. The restaurant tip does not include tipping, and the standard tip for good service is $12 to $15.
