Specialists advise you to immunize against infectious diseases, not to eat from street traders and to drink bottled water. Travel increases the risk of illness, especially for children or those with digestive disorders. The condition is to drink bottled water and avoid ice juices. Fruits with a rich liquid content can also be useful. Children are most exposed to digestive disorders because their body loses fluids much faster than adults. In order to resist the fatigue involved in a trip, it is important to eat well. But beware of street products or traditional menus if you know you have a sensitive stomach.
