Our travel guides, which are curated by Travel + Leisure editors and a network of local correspondents, highlight the best hotels, restaurants, shops, bars, and things to do in the world’s most exciting destinations. Be aware if you are traveling to a place with a time difference. From experience, not understanding this concept will severely mess things up temporarily. But traveling on your own does require more planning and attention to detail than traveling with a family member or friend. When you’re on your own, there’s no one with you to guide you back to the hotel if you get lost. If your bag gets stolen or you forget something important at home, you can’t just borrow a few spare clothes from your travel companion. You’ll have to figure out how to make do on your own. Experience dictates that in general every resort will have some positives and some negatives. If you visit a review site and all you get is glowing reviews about how perfect everything is, then I would be suspicious. Someone is bound to have a bad experience and even the good experiences, to be totally balanced, would find some slight niggling issues. So the key here is to look around and try and find balanced information.

Your best bets for traveling in Nepal are long, synthetic or cotton pants, mid-calf skirts, and, if you’re going to wear shorts, make them long shorts that come down to just above the knee or, better yet, those short pants (like capri pants) that reach to just below the knee. I also recommend easy-fitting convertible pants, with zippers just above the knee. T-shirts are fine, but I’d leave the “muscle travel insurance shirts” at home. How very beautiful! It’s been raining here for five days and I would so love to visit a place like this. Thanks for the tour. Restaurants in hotels were allowed to remain open, the U.S. Embassy noted, but only hotel guests were permitted to dine there. At the Shangri-La hotel , the NYT reported, tourists gathered on the terrace, eating fresh seafood and sipping white wine.
