Don’t you love traveling around the globe, discovering different cultures, and meeting new people? Are you planning to travel anytime soon? Yes? Well, there are certain things that you need to be alert about while traveling.
Here Are 5 Things You Must AVOID While Traveling
1. Exchanging Currency At The Airport
Airports are the worst place to get your currency exchanged. Knowing that the travelers will need money to commute from the airport to elsewhere and that they have no other choice, the currency exchange centers at airports offer awful exchange rates and try making as much profit for themselves as possible. You should hence try getting your currency exchanged from an ATM, a local bank, or the local currency exchanging shops in the city.
2. Violating Others’ Privacy
Although you might be having the time of your life wanting to capture everything in your camera and take them home as precious memories, you should not forget that others around you might feel that their privacy is being violated.
Taking candid pictures of others without their consent is outright unethical. Respecting their privacy, you should always be mindful enough to ask them if they would be okay with it. Go ahead if they give you a green signal but stop right away if they are even slightly uncomfortable.
3. Confining Yourselves To Famous Tourist Spots
Visiting the famous tourist attractions only and spending the rest of the day in your hotel room is not a wise thing to do. Once you are done visiting the favorite tourist spots for the day, rather than sitting in your hotel room watching a movie, you should instead set out to wander on the streets, explore the street life, and try talking to shopkeepers or the locals at a roadside cafeteria. This would not only help you from getting bored but also provide you an opportunity to know the local culture deeply bestowing on you more exposure and fun.
4. Overburdening Yourself
Overburdening yourself by trying to visit a lot of places in a single day can get you tired and kill all the fun. The last thing you would want, when on vacation, would be getting ill or too exhausted and having to spend the remaining days on the bed. Plan your vacation wisely. Visit as many places as you can but stop as soon as you get tired. Taking too much on your shoulders can kill all the joy.
5. Commuting via taxis
Cab or taxi drivers will often try charging you more to make huge profits when they know that you are a tourist and you would not probably be aware of the rates. Even if you are well versed in such matters, you would not be as confident while bargaining as you would have been in your homeland. Always remember that in an unknown country or city you can easily be exploited and taken advantage of. Hence, you should always use public transport such as buses and avoid using taxis or cabs as much as possible.
