  • Always obey the laws of the country you are visiting. Respect local cultures and customs, and always ask permission before taking photos of people or public places.
  • “The best thing a traveler can do is go to a local clothing store and buy a couple of outfits, then no one will ever mistake you for a tourist,” says travel expert John E. DiScala. Plus, your new wardrobe additions make great souvenirs. Dressing appropriately while abroad helps you fit in with locals, receive friendly service, and protects you from standing out to the theft.
