Be A Good Tourist On Next Trip

Be At Your Best Behaviour

Remember that when you are travelling to a new place, you are representing the place you are coming from. You don’t want to give a bad impression about your homeland. So, try and be polite and smile at people you meet at cafes or public places. Talk to your hotel staff and try to learn about their culture a little more. Once you strike a friendly conversation, you will notice that people will open up to you. They will be willing to help you get around the place. Who knows someone might treat you to a nice homemade meal too!

Don’t Make Racist Comments

Often, while travelling, tourists can get microaggressive in certain situations. This will leave a bad taste in not just your mouth but to the other person too. Stay away from judging their culture or making comments on the way they look. People shouldn’t get the impression that you don’t appreciate their country or culture. So, be cautious about how you behave in public places.
