Each season in Europe offers visitors a different ambience and experience, so it’s a popular destination choice for 365 days of the year. From Italy’s Colosseum and Vatican City, to France’s Eiffel Tower and gothic Notre Dame Cathedral, Europe packs a myriad of getaways that can fulfil hearts yearning to explore archaeological sites. Whether you are searching for museums in Athens; a culinary vacation in Florence; skiing in Gstaad; or being surrounded with sand and beaches in Malta, Europe has it all and it’s just waiting to be discovered. If you are on a shopping expedition, you’ll get better bargains at family businesses and restaurants off the main roads as they tend to be cheaper. You’ll find cheese, wine and bread ridiculously cheap, providing good sustenance during your journey and a new culinary experience compared to back home.
Tipping is appreciated for most services but not required, so tip only when you feel that exceptional service has been rendered to you. Public transportation in Europe is amazingly good, so you can plan your mode of transport according to your destination, and take a break from the driving culture of Malaysia by experiencing some breathtaking train journeys. A popular way to travel Europe is through backpacking, but do take note that some of these European countries belong to the Schengen Area, which only allows citizens within the area to move and travel freely without valid documents. Therefore, before going overseas, check if you require a Schengen visa to enter these countries. While you’re online, also verify if there are any Schengen travel insurance requirements you need to be covered by.
