Do not plan your travel before you visit a location as you might miss some places or things to do which you will get to know once you visit the place.
Yes, travel to a new place sounds interesting but preplanning the travel is not a good idea before you step your foot to a new place. Try to note down some of the important places to visit while you travel and the rest you will get to know once you reach the destination.
Most people tend to pre-book the places they want to visit and then regret the decision that they should have visited the given place as they get to know when they reach, hence, just plan to note down some locations that you want to visit and let the location guide you to the place that you wish to explore.
I did the mistake for the first trip where I had pre-booked my place of stay and transportation and also places to visit, however, when I reached the destination I got to know a major event happening one evening and my bus was supposed to departure that same afternoon. I regretted my decision of pre-booking the bus and it spoilt my chance to witness a grand event which every resident look forward to.
Hence, try to note down some places to visit, however, do not pre-book as you will get many unplanned events coming up to you when you visit the location. Also, being a touristic place, there will not be any dearth of transportation which you can ask local tour guide or hotel/hostel receptionist to arrange transportation for the next day which they would be happy to help.
