It is very difficult to find places in a completely different city. The ways are different, the street naming is different, and finding places on the map is also difficult. But with technology, it is no longer a struggle to find any place anywhere in the world. Just open Google Maps or any other application that you are comfortable with and just search where you want to go. It will give you all the details of how to get there including the directions. Students will not need to go from place to place, ask people, or do any other struggle and just take this small help of their phone and make their travel easier.
