Have you ever considered going on a pub crawl in New Zealand? If you are visiting the country on business, for pleasure, are studying abroad, or you have lived here all your life, this country’s many cities can provide you with a variety of options in entertainment. Finding the best locations to visit, however, is not always easy.
This is where you will need a pub crawl. This is an activity that will give you the opportunity to explore the night life in the city without doing any research on you own. The guided tour will ensure that you only visit different local hotspots and experience the best that New Zealand has to offer.
Interested? While you may be excited to sign up for the next crawl available, there is one other thing you should consider before you dive into a night of fun and exploration, and that’s your safety. Most crawls do their very best to ensure the safety and security of their participants, but you should also take steps to make sure you are safe during the crawl. If you aren’t sure what to do, consider the following tips.
Safety Tips To Consider Before Bar Crawls
Drink Water- You may have heard this a hundred times but it is necessary it sticks with your head. Ensure to drink enough water. This will make sure that you are hydrated throughout the night and thus make you safer. Drinking water instead of an alcoholic beverage during the crawl can also help you enjoy your night more. With enough water in your system, you can turn a sprint into a marathon that can last all night.
Proper Identification- Whenever you are in a new city or perhaps a new country, it is necessary that you have a sort of identification on you. Consider bringing along your driver’s license or a copy of your passport to the pub crawls tours. It is not really necessary to bring your real passport because you may get stuck in the city longer than you anticipated if it eventually gets lost. It is also a nice idea to write down the name of your hotel or hostel, your phone number and that of someone who can be contacted in any emergency. You can duplicate this on a card and put them in your shoe or back pocket where they can easily get lost. To this end, it won’t be difficult to gather directions if something happens during or after the crawl or if you can’t find your way home.
Eat Something- If you want to last the entire night, don’t go on the pub crawl with an empty stomach. By eating enough before a pub, your stomach can hold you throughout the night and you will even have the power to play and win at one of the crawls games.
Don’t Leave Your Crew- Wondering in a new city can be dangerous. If you are on a crawl, don’t leave your group.
Get a Cab- Don’t drink and then attempt to drive. Get a cab to drop you off where the bar crawls group is supposed to meet. This way, when the crawl is over, you won’t be tempted to get behind the week in your inebriated state.
It doesn’t matter the reason you want to experience New Zealand’s night life, but paying attention to elements of your safety is of utmost importance.
