2 minutes tutorial to know the difference between TO and FOR

I am going for a walk  (correct)
Why?
Let’s read the following post, to know the reason

 

Use of TO

“TO” is used for a specific direction and the direct has to be clear
For example,
I am going to school (direction is clear, so we are using TO)
I am going to meet you (Direct is clear, as I am going to meet you)




But, If I say
I am going to somewhere (wrong)

I am going to somewhere (we will omit “TO”, as direction is not clear)

Just say
I am going somewhere
