8. Live In The Right Neighborhood
At the moment you probably stay in the same hotels most people do, but when you think about it they’re mostly the same all around the world. They also happen to be in areas where you don’t get a feel for the city, which would completely change if you lived where the locals do. If you’re going to be staying somewhere for more than a few days you should think about booking into an Airbnb. If you plan everything out carefully you will still be able to live close enough to work that you’ll not have to commute far each day.

7. Make Use Of Great New Apps
Every single business person in the world will travel with a smartphone, which opens up an almost unlimited selection of apps you’ll be able to use. Would you agree the food you eat can help you experience a new culture unlike anything else? Unfortunately there is a difference between the best restaurants and the ones tourists flock to. If you had a special app on your phone you’d be able to see where all the best restaurants were in the city. Even if you’re busy working hard they might deliver the food to your room.

6. Ask People To Take You Out
You can hit the town on your own when you’re in a new city, but you won’t be able to find all those amazing places only locals know about. You’ll end up in the same boring bars every other business traveler is sitting in. If you’re in business meetings all day there will surely be a few people you’ll become friendly with, especially anyone younger who probably won’t have a family obligations. Ask them if they would like to join you for a few drinks when you’re finished for the day and you’ll be taken to unforgettable places.
