If you travel frequently, you should make a point of visiting the arts and crafts markets of the countries you visit. If you have a map app or a way to get around, you can find the market for you to buy some memorable products that will act as a reminder that you once visited the country. Some of the tips that will make the experience better are:
Do not go blindly to the arts and crafts market. You need to do some research so that you know hat to expect. By doing research on the kind of market it is, you will also know the kind of items to expect, the price range and whether there is something unique that you can buy.
Know Custom Rules
There are some countries that have a lot of restrictions on who is allowed to travel with art pieces and the kind of art pieces that you can travel with. You should also know the packaging you can use, and if you are using a flight to go back to your country, you should bear that in mind if you want to travel with them back on the plane.
Change Money to Local Currency
It will make work easier if you go to the arts and crafts market with the local currency. This not only makes it easy for you, but it is convenient for the people who are selling the art since they do not have to go through the tedious and often confusing conversion process.
Go With a Local
If you can get someone to accompany you, you will end up enjoying yourself more. This is because the locals will help you with translation and can even give you some cultural context. Always remember to go with someone who you can trust.
