Tourism has become increasingly commonplace and a part of life for many people. With increasing international lifestyles it is however important to be aware of the affect your visit has on the local culture. It is every travellers duty to ensure that they respect the wishes and customs of the local population.
Wherever you travel you should do your best to respect local laws, religious observances and customs. This may involve you doing some amount of research before you go. While this subject is far too big to be addressed in this site we do have a partner site which can help you become a responsible traveler.
Remember you are an ambassador of your country whenever you travel abroad and acting responsibly and respectfully will both give you more rewarding interaction with locals and increase the reputation of your country.
