Let’s start with all of our google apps that we need on our phones. Google has revolutionised the web and it should be no different when it comes to using our phones. There are 3 Google essential apps that needs to be on your phone before you take off to explore a new country.


  • Google Maps – if you are not going to be kicking it old school with a map then Google Map is your 1# app to help you find your way around the new country
  • Google Translate – this app is just golden! If you are not close to being bilingual, then this is your new best friend! Don’t get caught in a case of miscommunication, Google translate can help you to solve some tricky situations.
  • Google Trips – this is a planner’s dream app! Plan everything for the day with the Google Trips app that automatically maps out a day for you with suggestions and thing to see and do.


Now that you have downloaded the essentials from Google, check out what are the remaining 7 apps that can help you on your trip.


  • Uber – This popular app is available in 633 cities around the world! Find your way around the city in a reliable and safe manner by booking a ride through the app.
