In the event your child wanders off, make sure to have a recent picture along with you to help locate him or her. It can be terrifying to lose your child.

There are some criminals in foreign cities that pretend to be police officers, so be careful. Show officials your passport, but do not give it to them. If someone insists you must visit their office, then walk there with them. Never ride in a vehicle with a stranger, no matter how nice they are.
When you travel to foreign countries, watch the taxis you enter. Before entering any taxi, know if it is a real one. Any idiots can slap a “taxi” sign onto their car and you never know who they might be or where they might end up taking you.
When traveling by car to a port prior to cruising, search for lodgings where you can park at no cost and make reservations for the night before departure. You can check with staff at the hotel for unpublished parking deals.
If your travel takes you to amusement parks or any other place that requires tickets, purchase them online. Many times you can print them at home and save some money, too. Although you may pay a service fee for this option, it is worth it to bypass long lines for entrance to the park. If it is somewhere like a park with lengthy lines for admittance, you can generally bypass these, too.
Getting away is great, but too often we bring too much with us to remind us of home. Do not overpack toiletries, just bring what you need. List all the ones you typically use each day and that you really need. Only pack the ones you are sure you will use.

As long as you are careful, you should feel confident about visiting developing nations, as they can offer extremely enlightening experiences for your children and you. When you spend time abroad, you give yourself and your family a greater understanding of another culture and the world at large.
