How Should Your Travel Outfits Look like

How Should Your Travel Outfits Look like? – Best Ideas

If you’re a frequent traveler, you’ll be well aware that certain things are of utmost importance, like wearing the right clothes according to the norms of the destination. But what’s also important is that the clothes are comfortable and practical to get you through. So pay attention to some of the most amazing travel outfit ideas coming your way.

The thought of sunny skies, beautiful beaches, and delightful landscapes might make you feel excited, but the selection of your outfit should not be left for the last minute. Here is how your travel outfit should look from the point of departure to the destination.

What To Wear For Traveling On A Plane?

Traveling is fun, but long flights can be the worst thing ever. Sitting for hours on cramping seats, you don’t want to make it more difficult by wearing something uncomfortable.

On the other hand, you don’t want to look like a teen going out for a slumber party; the best thing you can do is find a balance between fashion and comfort.

Cotton T-shirts are a great pick for long travel because they feel highly comfortable and always look great. Secondly, you can wear something over it too. Blazers are amongst the best options, especially if you want a slightly polished, smart look.

Can you wear jeans at the airport?

Yes, Jeans are great to wear for short-haul flights. But opt for regular jeans rather than ripped or faded jeans. For long-haul flights, soft cotton chinos are a better option; you can wear colors like khaki, beige, ivory white, or stick to the versatile black and grey.

Outer Wear
Traveling light can be tempting, but it’s not always great to cut edges when it comes to your attire. For times like these, it’s pretty cool to drape on a jacket. For a casual summer trip, a denim one is a superb choice. But Black Leather Jackets look hot, and Brown Leather Jackets look refined.

Foot Wear
Can you wear flip-flops through airport security? Some airports require taking off your shoes before getting through the security check. While you might think flip-flops are the best option, you will have to walk bare feet. So why not wear something that looks better as a pair of slip-ons.

What To Wear Once You Arrive At Your Destination?

Now that you know what to wear for your flight, let move on and see what other options we have once we’ve reached our long-awaited travel destination.

What Should I Wear In Europe?

When traveling to Europe, you don’t want to look like those cringe-worthy tourists with socks, sandals, and tropical shirts along with a camera hanging from the neck. Instead, try wearing something that looks preppy.

As opposed to the American effortless style, Europeans prefer smart casuals. Your outfit can vary depending on the area of your travel. In cities like London and Paris, opt for darker colors. On the other hand, wear brighter colors while beaching in Italy or Spain.

Here are the 10 best travel outfit ideas for men according to different seasons.

Travel Outfits for Fall & Spring

To keep it simple and elegant, your first option can be a checkered shirt. You can experiment with different colors and patterns but keep in mind not to make it too extravagant. Instead, pair the shirt with nice-looking chinos and loafers. You can also keep a small leather bag to carry your stuff.

If it’s chilly outside, you can also drop in a tailored sweatshirt and pair it with dark blue or black jeans and white sneakers to complete the look. Sunglasses and watches are great accessories that compliment your outfit, and you can easily build a wardrobe on a budget. Of course, you can also carry a bag with all the important items you need.

Bomber Jackets are an excellent addition to your lightweight travel clothes; keep the colors simple like green, navy, and black. You can layer it with a black or grey cotton tee and dark jeans, wear contrasting shoes to highlight the entire outfit.

Travel Outfit for Summer

What Should A Guy Wear To A Beach Vacation?

If you’re planning to hit the beach on your holidays, you can still keep your style statement on a high. However, if you’re confused about what to wear, here are some fantastic ideas that you don’t make summer style mistakes.

A light blue shirt looks fabulous at the beach when paired with denim shorts. You can also wear a cap, and it will not only look stylish but will provide shade from the bright sunlight.

Light cotton sleeveless shirts and Bermuda shorts are best for the beach on a sunny day. Just sit back and enjoy the sunlight and gushing wind.

What Do I Need For An African Holiday Safari?

Hiking in the desert can attract dirt and stains, so it’s highly recommended not to wear your favorite pair of clothing. Opt for basic color shorts and shirts like beige, stone, and khakis. It will not only hide dirt but will also help you blend in the landscape. You will spend most of the time in the sun so better wear sunglasses.

You can wear lighter shades for jungle safaris as well but make sure you cover your skin to avoid bugs and mosquito bites. Pair a light green long sleeve shirt with comfortable travel pants, drop out a wide brim hat, and leather boot to complete the style.

Winter Travel Outfit Ideas for Men

Dark colors such as black and charcoal are great for winters, wear a grey tee/sweatshirt and layer it with a warm double-breasted wool coat. Complete the look with plain black jeans and brown sneakers.

Puffer jackets are stylish and reliable winter wear; you can layer them over a warm turtle neck and slim-fit denim pants. Finish the look with contrasting sneakers or a classic leather boot.

Wool coats are a timeless winter layering piece; you should have at least one in your wardrobes, preferably versatile colors like black or grey, to elevate any outfit. Wear it with a black sweatshirt, navy chinos, and suede Chelsea boots.

These were the best travel outfit ideas for men ranging from the flight to the destination. All you need to do is select your desired style and adjust it according to your surroundings, keeping the same guidelines.

The Most Overrated Tourist Destinations

The Most Overrated Tourist Destinations (and Where to Go Instead)

Make your vacation worth your time and money by avoiding these tourist traps.

You’re a savvy traveler who knows how to plan every detail, how to avoid tourist traps, and how to be a tourist without being an asshole. Still, sometimes even the most shrewd travelers can’t resist the desire to check off the most popular tourist attractions—even if those attractions end up being overrated. When in Rome, you’re going to visit the Colosseum. When in Paris, you need to see the Eiffel Tower. This is the logic that drives hundreds of thousands of tourists to the Great Wall of China, the Great Pyramids of Giza, and all the other Great Tourist Traps of the world.

After travel restrictions and safety concerns due to the pandemic, any long-awaited travel plans you have for this summer should be worth every moment. The last thing you want as a traveler is to discover that you’ve wasted time and money only to be thoroughly underwhelmed. The feeling of intense letdown even has a name: Paris Syndrome. Officially coined as a way to describe the physical sickness experienced by Japanese tourists in Paris in 1986, the term now can be thought of as a severe form of culture shock, homesickness, and ultimately, disappointment when a destination can’t live up to damagingly high expectations.

All too often, the hype is bigger than the attraction. This leads to overcrowding, scammers, and often miserable experiences that could have been better spent at more underrated tourist spots. Here are some popular destinations that are overrated—and some travel ideas that are worth your while.

The most overrated tourist destinations

About my reasoning here: I believe that a smart traveler can make any city worth it, so I’m not actually trying to diss an entire city or region as “overrated” (even though I love to poke fun at the French). You’ll hear people call a lot of popular attractions overrated due to “scammers” on-site, but personally, I believe in factoring in a “tourist tax” where you can expect to lose a few $20 bills here and there to people who somewhat take advantage of travelers.

And please don’t think I’m an arrogant American dissing cultural icons like the literal Taj Mahal. This is just my insight as to what tourist attractions will truly be worth all your time, money, and jet lag.

The Mona Lisa, Paris

The Louvre is the most-visited museum in the world, and it has plenty of fine art to offer. However, if your main draw is visiting Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, prepare to be let down. Not only is the painting much smaller in real life, but the crowds around it don’t exactly make for the best artistic appreciation. For less chaotic museums in Paris, try out the Musée d’Orsay and Musée Picasso.

Sacred Monkey Forest, Ubud

Wild monkeys can be found all over Bali, so there’s no reason to contribute to this overwhelming, zoo-like park. It’s overcrowded with tourists, and since the monkeys here have become used to humans, they’re known to be overly aggressive. In general, you want to research the ethics of any animal-centered attraction (like with elephant rides in Thailand). If you’re trying to see wild monkeys while in this region, consider Mount Batur or the Uluwatu Temple.

The Taj Mahal, Agra

Although this structure is undeniably magnificent, this is another one of those attractions where it’s so crowded that you won’t be able to appreciate where you are. From sunrise to sunset, there isn’t really a secret hour of the day where you won’t be overwhelmed. When I visited, I wished I had skipped this stop in Agra in favor of spending another day exploring beautiful Udaipur instead.

Pisa, Italy

After getting your precious pic of you pretending to prop up the leaning tower, Pisa is generally seen as too touristy and out-of-the-way, when the rest of Italy has so much more to offer.

The Temple Bar, Dublin

Also the name of Dublin’s nightlife capital, this Temple Bar specifically refers to the frequently-photographed pub with iconic red walls. It’s worth strolling around the cobblestone neighborhood, but the bar itself is an overpriced and overcrowded tourist trap.

Jemaa el-Fna (the famous Marrakesh market)

Marrakesh, Morocco is worth a spot on your bucket list. The iconic market, however, is best to speed through before getting out of the main square and into the old city. Chances are you look like a tourist, in which case this market is going to be a suffocating slew of vendors yelling at you. Make sure to keep an eye on your belongings as you pass through, since this place is known for pickpockets.

Stonehenge, England

believe Stonehenge gets a reputation as “overrated” because it’s fairly difficult to visit. You’ll have to devote a whole day away from London, and once you arrive, you’ll find that tourists aren’t able to get all that close to the iconic rocks. And look: I don’t believe tourists should be allowed to climb on the rocks. But personally, I really want to be able to climb on the rocks. ME! (There, my American arrogance is showing.)

Hobbiton, New Zealand

New Zealand is worth a visit for many reasons, but these tourist trap hobbit houses are not one of them. The Lord of the Rings fans should do their research to visit more of the natural beauty that New Zealand provided as a major filming location of their favorite films. Unfortunately, Hobbiton-specific tours are pricey, fast-paced, and jam-packed.

Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, Kyoto

This bamboo garden is no doubt jaw-dropping, but once again, the sheer number of tourists around you might make it hard to take in your surroundings. Consider visiting one of Kyoto’s smaller, underrated bamboo-clad pathways like Kodaiji Temple.

Geneva, Switzerland

Although Lake Geneva offers stunning views and fun water activities, this city is so expensive, it’s hard to budget more than a day here.


Alright, this one is a technicality. It’s not that Hawaii is overrated. You shouldn’t go because the people are begging you not to come.

Where to plan your next vacation instead

I could spend all day listing alternative ideas for your next big vacation. For now, here are some of my top picks to pique your interest.

Touristy spots that you can do right

  • Angkor Wat, Cambodia. I’m biased, since I lived in Cambodia for a spell, but I believe this popular destination is worth your time if you do it right. These sprawling, ancient Buddhist temples are huge enough that you can easily stray from the beaten path and avoid the overwhelming crowds. Just make sure to get there at sunrise.
  • Great Pyramids. Again, I’m biased since I visited Giza during the tourist off-season (late June). While a lot of people will call the pyramids overrated, I think those people are somehow spoiled or impossible to please. Book a private tour guide, who will have a wealth of knowledge and also have your back against aggressive vendors. Remember to tip your guide generously at the end of the day.
  • Hạ Long Bay, Vietnam. It might not look quite like how it does in the James Bond movies, but this moody seascape is still a stunning cruise. I recommend booking a group tour that includes kayaking and caving.
  • Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Don’t feel bad skipping the Red Light district in favor of the hip Jordaan district. Plus, the Van Gogh Museum is one of my favorite places in the world.
  • Bangkok, Thailand: Skip the Great Palace and spend your time appreciating Wat Phra Kaew, Wat Pho, and Wat Arun. Make sure to try all sorts of amazing street food along the way.

Destinations to add to your bucket list

The following cities have yet to be totally overrun by tourists:

  • Udaipur, India. A little more peaceful and spread out compared to other popular cities in India.
  • Lima, Peru. A lively capital city that gets overlooked, but shouldn’t.
  • Brussels, Belgium. Make sure to book a chocolate tour.
  • Valparaiso, Chile. From street art to rainbow houses, this city is unbelievably colorful.
  • Puglia, Italy. Wine, pasta, and beaches.
  • Budapest, Hungary. The “Little Paris of Middle Europe.”
  • Dubrovnik, Croatia. Bummed about Hobbiton? This is the main filming location for King’s Landing in HBO’s Game of Thrones.
  • Denmark’s Faroe Islands. Sheep outnumber humans 70,000 to 50,000 here.
  • Java, Indonesia. Less-visited than Bali, but just as beautiful.
  • Petra, Jordan. Known as the “Rose City,” Petra is a series of caves, temples, tombs, and ruins carved from pink sandstone.
  • Luang Prubang, Laos. The perfect spot for day trip to remarkable aqua waterfalls.
  • Taipei, Taiwan. This capital city has a culinary scene to die for.

Like I mentioned at the top: You can make the most of any journey, so long as you do a little research first. I’m not saying you should map out every minute of your vacation. Just spend a little time online to find the best hours and seasons to plan your visit, and try to gather site-specific tips from all the travel blogs available for free online. Make sure you manage expectations and understand what you’re getting into, wherever you’re going.

Choose The Right Foods This Winter For Beauty And Health

Choose The Right Foods This Winter For Beauty And Health

A healthy, nutritious diet is the foundation of both health and beauty. Shahnaz Husain shares what you must include in your diet during the cold months.

Nature is actually the best physician and cosmetologist. She gives us fruits and vegetables, needed by the body for both health and beauty during the different seasons. In winter, we get fruits and vegetables which are beneficial to the body in cold weather. For instance, we get oranges, keenu and mousambi, rich in Vitamin C, which actually help to strengthen our immune system and protect us from colds, cough and respiratory ailments. Green leafy vegetables like lettuce, “palak”, “methi” and “sarson ka saag” are also rich in Vitamin C. In winter, the body also needs Vitamin A. So, have plenty of orange vegetables and fruits, like papaya and carrots. Amla, also available in winter, is the best source of Vitamin C.

Load up on vitamins

  • In winters, your body needs extra nutrition. You need to load up on vitamins and consume a whole lot of veggies and fruits.
  • Both Vitamin A and C keep the skin healthy and protect its youthful properties.
  • Vitamins A and E help to keep the skin soft and smooth.
  • Nuts and dry fruits are also available in winter.
  • Include peas in your diet too. They provide proteins and maintain body heat. They also contain vitamins and omega 3 fatty acids. They are better taken unsalted.
  • Snacks made from sesame seed (til) and peanuts are popular. There is enough evidence that natural foods improve the external appearance.
  • Fruit and vegetable juices, freshly extracted, are ideal for making you look and feel better. Make them from seasonal fruits, like oranges, mausambi, pomegranate (anaar), or from carrots, spinach or cabbage. They help to cleanse and purify the system and prevent the accumulation of toxins. This reflects on the body, in terms of clear skin and shiny hair.

Keep your body warm with hot drinks

Winter is also the time for hot drinks. Instead of normal tea and coffee, try herb teas or soups. There are certain foods that actually help to keep our body warm. In Ayurveda, ginger is known as “a universal remedy” because it has so many benefits. Ginger tea can be taken after meals for digestion and for coughs and colds in winter. Ginger has to be boiled in water to make ginger tea. As everyone knows, ginger can also be added to a cup of tea. It is of particular benefit in winter. It can also be added to soups and chutneys and chewed raw. Black pepper and tulsi are also said to be useful in coughs, colds and respiratory congestion.

Travel Photography Tips For Backpackers In Asia

Backpacking through a foreign land is an experience like no other. Whether you’re trekking through Southeast Asia’s jungles or exploring Japan’s cultural hubs, traveling through Asia can be a magical and eye-opening experience. With so many incredible sights to take in, it’s no wonder that travelers have a hard time putting down their cameras. If you want to record your backpacking excursion through Asia in photographs, there are a few tips Hunter Hobson wants you should keep in mind.

Research Before You Start

Before you even set foot in a foreign country, research the best photography spots and techniques for that particular area. There may be certain sights that are better photographed during specific times of day, or there could be local customs to take into account before snapping away with your camera. Knowing as much as possible about the areas you’ll be visiting—especially regarding photography—will help ensure you don’t miss any of the best spots or miss out on an opportunity to capture something exceptional.

Stick To Natural Light

In many cases, the most stunning photographs are created with natural light. Whether traveling through a bustling city or trekking through the countryside, you’ll want to take advantage of natural light when possible. If you must use your flash due to low-light conditions, try to keep it off as much as possible to avoid overexposing your shots and ruining the natural appeal of the environment.

Pack Light

The last thing you want is to be weighed down by heavy camera gear while trekking across the globe. While having all the necessary equipment is a given, try to pack as lightly as possible. It may be difficult for some photography novices, but a camera phone or even a simple point-and-shoot can capture stunning shots. If you’re set on bringing a DSLR, pack essential lenses only and leave anything extra behind.

Don’t Be Afraid To Get Off The Beaten Path

Generally, some of the best photographs come from those off-the-beaten-path shots. When backpacking through a foreign country, don’t be afraid to take detours and explore areas that aren’t typically on the tourist radar. It may sound intimidating at first, but these kinds of shots often end up being some of the best.

Staying safe should always be your top priority, but don’t let fear of the unknown keep you from capturing amazing photographs. Keep your wits about you and be amazed by what’s waiting to be discovered.

Interact With People

Not all photographs need to focus on landscapes or scenic views. Interacting with the locals can often result in amazing shots that capture the true essence of a culture and its people. When traveling through Asia, don’t hesitate to talk with local vendors, shopkeepers, or even passersby. You may get some of your best shots and have a great time while doing it.

Be Flexible

Sometimes, the most beautiful photographs come in unexpected moments and places. As Hunter Hobson says, “Don’t be afraid to break away from your plan—flexibility is key when it comes to capturing those amazing travel moments!”  Being able to capitalize on any photography opportunity that comes your way is critical when it comes to capturing beautiful travel photos.

Respect Cultural Norms

When traveling in foreign countries, it’s essential to be mindful of cultural norms and customs. Always be respectful when taking pictures and ask permission before snapping photos of people or places. Do your research before you start shooting so that you don’t offend anyone with your photography.

Final Thoughts

Travel photography can be an enriching experience. With a little preparation and research, you can take amazing photos capturing your destination’s beauty. Following these tips from Hunter Hobson will help ensure you don’t miss any of the best shots and respect the cultural norms. So get out there, explore the world, and take some fantastic photographs.
