The Best Deals:

Make use of technology. Install apps and websites that help you with your travel. Tell you about the status of your flight, the weather of your destination. Just google the apps you need for your travel. There are also apps that tell you what the place is famous for. Make your trip a little techlicious.
Always add a buffer to every plan of your trip. The flight may get delayed, the market may be closed, or anything could happen. So be prepared for any delays or change of plans. Add one extra free day into your itinerary.
