6 TRAVEL WISE

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - COVER STORY -

If you’ve vis­ited non-English speak­ing coun­tries—es­pe­cially China—you’ll know how im­pos­si­ble it is to com­mu­ni­cate some­thing as sim­ple as the name and ad­dress of your ho­tel to a taxi driver. To pre­vent be­ing stranded in the mid­dle of nowhere, take a doc­u­ment shot of your ho­tel name and ad­dress with your phone cam­era and show it the cab­bie to ease com­mu­ni­ca­tion. Yes, you can al­ways carry a ho­tel card in your pocket. But, un­like a phone, the like­li­hood of your mis­plac­ing the card or for­get­ting to keep it on your per­son ev­ery day are man­i­fold. Sim­i­larly, this will also help you get lo­cal train, bus and even walk­ing di­rec­tion as­sis­tance.
