Travel Hack: Finding your way home in South East Asia

Often when I’m in somewhere where I’m not familiar with the language, I ask the hotel concierge to write the full name of the hotel, and it’s address, and if necessary directions, on a piece of paper in the local language(s).

So, if you hop into a taxi in Hong Kong for example, as I’ve done many a time, and the cab driver can’t speak English or doesn’t understand you, just hand them the piece of paper with the relevant details on it.
