When visiting another country, it is usually best to fit in a little bit with the locals or you will stick out like a sore thumb. Some people want to stand out, and that’s perfectly fine; but if you’re looking to fit in, there are some things to learn first: one thing is to have a desire to live like a native and have an authentic experience. In certain countries it is disrespectful to wear certain clothing or possess certain manners; so knowing the right way to dress or act will usually come in handy. If you act completely out of place, then you will attract unnecessary attention which is going to hold you back from enjoying the new place that you are visiting. Always remember to avoid entering an uncomfortable situation with locals, as well as mislead thieves if you can. There are ‘not so nice’ people everywhere, and you need to be aware of that. Just show respect and interest for the country you are in, and all else will fall into place.
Blending in can have a ton of positive effects in your travel experience. There are many ways to put the happy benefits into place. One thing you can do is buy what locals wear; once you arrive to your destination, look around to see what everyone is wearing, and then you can go on a mini shopping spree. You can also study recent photos of that country to have a clearer idea of what to pack. Just make sure not to overdo the local look. Everyone will notice that you are trying too hard to fit in. Wearing neutral clothes is just a great idea in general, so got for that if you can’t decide on what to wear. That will definitely be your key to success in the new country of your choice. One big piece of advice is to not carry a big backpack while walking around. Just keep it simple and carry a few necessary items you will need for the day. Enjoy your trip and go talk with some of the locals.
