Local culture, customs and etiquette

A bit of local knowledge can go a long way to enhance your travel experience and earn you respect in the country you’re visiting. Nobody expects you to become a native overnight, but before you head off on your travels, make sure you familiarise yourself with your destination and its local laws and customs.

It’s also a good idea to learn some key phrases and words of the local language. This can make a huge difference to your trip and the reception you get.
