What to Listen For


  • Window or aisle seat?
    • Window - Unanimously
    • Raudha - For the view and leaning on the walls to sleep
    • Hazirah - View and the fluffy clouds but sitting in the middle with other people you know is so cozy
    • Nurul - To see that the plane is moving because if not its a little claustrophobic
    • Seating in the first row
  • When you first arrive at a destination, do you sleep in or go out and explore?
    • Raudha - Go out but it depends on what time of the day the arrival is
    • Hazirah - If a lot of time in hand, sleep first freshen up then go out to get groceries
    • Nurul - Go to the toilet, then to the hotel to unpack then go out to find food
    • Yucky feeling when you just got off the flight
    • First-day sight-seeing or just exploring the immediate area
  • Markets or Shopping Mall?
    • Hazirah - Farmers Market, to soak in the local culture and to get localized products
    • Shopping malls looking similar around the world
    • Supermarkets being different
  • Street Food or Restaurant?
    • Hazirah - If Halal and clean then street food
    • Food poisoning scare when traveling
    • Nurul - Depends. Street food for their convenience and price but sometimes you want to be fancy so restaurants
    • The weather affecting your choice between Street Food or Restaurants
    • Traveling overseas so wanting to try more things
  • Rent a car or private hires?
    • Hazirah - Rent a car so she can go anywhere she wants and sometimes the prices of private hires can fluctuate a lot
    • Raudha - Public Transport if the country has efficient public transport. But in a country with affordable private hires then that. Private hires for the comfort or with parents
    • Nurul - Motorbike because of the congestion
    • Renting a car overseas
    • Driving to the countryside or going to different places
  • Travel solo or with loved ones?
    • Hazirah - With someone so she can talk to them when traveling
    • Raudha - Enjoy a bit of both
    • Nurul - Solo. Don't have a chance to travel solo or maybe one or two others so there's no need to take care of the logistics of travel
    • Getting to do what you want but traveling with loved ones has its own perks too
  • Supposed trip to Uzbekistan
