  • A simple ‘hello’ or a ‘thank you’ in the local language can break down barriers
  • Try and stay at homestays than at hotels or resorts
  • Use a local as your guide – that way you will get deeper, more credible insights
  • Dress smartly: shoddy dressing has never succeeded in getting anybody’s respect
  • Bargain, but with a heart: remember that you are definitely better off than the seller
  • Don’t indulge beggars with money, instead buy them food or give old clothes
  • Eat from local restaurants as far as possible and buy from local handicraft stalls
  • Protect the local environment by conserving power, water and not littering
