Things Every Traveler Should Follow While Traveling To New Destinations
Our country India, indeed has a huge population and thus the country also contains a big lot of population of adventure enthusiasts and wanderers taking numerous expeditions to far off lands. Tourists of Indian origin are found anywhere around the world today and the number is at an increase with the passing years. With the quantity of people taking trips from India being at an increase, what we need to look at is the quality of the travellers we send from here, for they indeed represent the country in a way and tourism that is not responsible sets a terrible image by far.
Travellers need some basic cue about travelling and tours before they pack their bags just to make sure that they act right when they are in their journey. Responsible tourism is thus a word with a lot of mentions on a traveller’s bible. Often or not we see cases of tourists disregarding the needed protocol to how to act when they are in someone else’s land. This article is thus an attempt to infuse in some basic know-hows for you to be a traveler with responsibility and a traveler that know what travelers are meant to act like. Here are thus some basic things you need to keep in mind for you to be a traveller that everyone would want in their place.
Respect religious sentiments
The first thing you need to be careful about while you’re in someone else’s land is to not mess with someone’s religious sentiments. You need to be extremely respectful in these matters. Religion is a topic that people often deeply identify with. And in such a scenario, it is very important for us to learn what the religion of the place you’re at, wants from you and what it does not want you to do. As travellers it is advisable for you to take a little more care of your conduct especially on places of religious worships and try best not to cause troubles in this case.
It is of no doubt that trips and vacations demand relaxations and chills and boozing is certainly one of those things you would not want to curtail. Here responsible tourism urges that you booze but with responsibility where you do not fall out of your senses. A hangover would anyway bring down the fun in your trip right? It is extremely parliamentary for you to go drunk to public places like temples and forts and cause distress to fellow travellers as well.
Communicate and Ask to know
You should not be doing anything in an unknown land without good knowledge of the rules that people abide by there. Thus it is advised for travellers to actually communicate with locals and be furnished with as much information as possible for you to know the right things to do in the place. Communication certainly goes beyond that and is going to help you not only in this case but you could make great friends in the process or save great amount of money knowing the real deals from locals.
Follow the culture and clothing of respectful places
There are certain places inside towns or cities which require you to cover yourself more than other places. Here you are thus advised to wear clothes that cover your body well-parts like legs, shoulders, belly etc. This will keep you safe from unwanted attention and at the same time is going to make people feel that you have respect for their culture. Respecting others culture is going to bring you respect as well.
Do not litter
You are in someone else’s home and it is going to be very mean to create a mess there. Keep your campsites and hotel rooms as clean as possible. Do not use and throw a lot of plastics. Try using plastic replacements. Throw garbage only in the dustbins. These things will make sure you do not dirty places and cause troubles to anyone.
This is a very important thing to keep in mind. Kindness is going to take you a long way ahead. What goes around, comes around and thus you need to be kind to every person you meet on your way. Help people if you can. Smile at strangers. Engage in sweet conversations and spread positivity around. This way you make not just your trip more memorable but make the place want to invite you back again.
