... what information do you research prior to the trip?

Visa details, currency and price comparisons, time difference, language, religion, special or specific laws and customs.

Going to London on a business trip would be quite different than going to Morocco for a holiday. Spending 3 days in Singapore is quite different than spending 3 days in Macau or Amsterdam.

A lol through experience
When I was living in Singapore, I did go to UK/France for a week. Had a great time in London, caught We Will Rock You in the West End with the original cast. Made it to the Eye without too long a wait. Found a few pubs off the tourist grid. Then caught a ride over to France for a few days and enjoyed that as well.
London sure beats trying to navigate through Jakarta or Shenzhen, China, that's for sure.
