4. Research and Plan
Research and planning go a long way to getting you to the right place at the right time. You’ll want to ensure you have enough time to cover all the important sights, as well as extra time to explore lesser known subjects and to experience the daily life of the people. Most importantly, check out the dates of special events such as festivals, public holidays and weekly markets. The spectacle, colour and crowds that are the hallmarks of these special days provide so many great photo opportunities that it’s well worth planning your trip around them.
