Travel Tip # 5

When you're in a different place- observe..observe..observe..and do.

Observe how people hail the public transport, observe how people eat, observe how people do things, how the local people dress and etc.

Though you may not really be able to learn the local people's 'culture' through a few days stay in the place, but through observation and following them, you won't be able to offend them. You as a foreigner will be a welcome sight and not an eye sore.

For example in Malaysia, it's predominantly a Muslim nation. Generally, people's dressing are more conservative compared to other nations. How would the local people feel if suddenly foreigner comes wearing skimpy , see through clothes?
