Traveling is great fun only when you make efforts to ensure it’s fun. Before you travel, take some time to understand the local customs, traditions, and dos and don’ts. You may think this much attention to detail just a tad excessive, but it pays off. The more you blend with the locals, the better your travel experience, as these 20 tips will show you.
1. Don’t Let Your Clothes Stand Out
Wear muted clothing that doesn’t stand out or mark you as a visitor. Don’t let your clothing shout logos, brands and labels, especially if you’re traveling in poorer regions.
2. Check Out Local Culture
Look up images of your destination online before you pack. It’ll give you an idea of what regular people wear and look like. You won’t get this info from guidebooks and travel brochures.
3. Purchase Clothing Locally
Buy clothes where locals buy, if you’re not sure what to wear at a particular destination. You’ll at least save on baggage costs!
