When you visit a new country, it is one of the most authentic and exhilarating experiences, especially if you are travelling there for the first time.Travelling to developing countries has become quite popular, particularly for those who live in developed countries. If you are travelling to a country that has a developing economy, there are a few things that can help you mingle better and also, some things that one should never do specifically in a country that is a little traditional. Here’s a quick list:
Know The Country: Take time out and learn a little about the destination which you are travelling to. This research is important, not just because it helps you plan your visit better but also it’s good to stay aware and be alert about what’s happening there. A part of your research can be conversing with some travellers who have been to the country before. You can do this on travel websites or even your airline website as well will give you all the information that you would require to know about the country you are travelling to.
Study About The Traditions And Taboos: Most of the developing countries or rather any country, is very strict about their tradition therefore, add this study to the list of “Things to do” before you travel so that you don’t end up getting in trouble.
Don’t Give Handouts: However tempting it may seem, don’t do this because you never know how the kids or their parents would react. In fact in many countries it could land you into trouble.
Keep Your Eyes And Ears Open: This is a tip that most travellers would offer because this helps you understand viewpoints of those who are around you and also it would help you understand the country and people better.
Apart from these, always keep your common sense at work because you never know when it might come handy. Plan your trip well and keep a close eye on money exchanges, don’t carry valuables, respect the culture and traditions of that area and above all, have fun!
