MONEY SAVING TIPS -: Money management is very important, you can save a lot of money from small things, here are few tips to save your money.
  • Buy tickets in combo rather than an individual ticket for each monument, they give you a discount on combo ticket, and it will save your time too.
  • .If you are a student bring your college or school ID card with you, it saves up to 75% on tickets and 30% on public transport.
  • .Do smart shopping and save lots of money, there is a big price difference of the same thing so before to buy anything check the prices in 2-3 shops and negotiate on it.
  • .If possible use public transport.
