Don‘t do what you don‘t want other people to do to you.
If you are in another country you shouldn‘t behave like you are in your own country – you should behave better.
Try to understand foreign cultures and be a part of the society of the country you are visiting: you can integrate pieces of other cultures to your own.
One day you should teach what you have learned to other people and make them responsible tourists.
Being a responsible tourist means also pay attention to the environment:
Don‘t ruin the place. (e.g.: throwing your rubbish away; destroying monuments)
Try to choose the more ecological ones, for example prefer the train to the plane.
Both of them are fast but the train is better for the environment and it is mostly more comfortable.
In addition to that when you’re travelling by train you can see the places in between.
If the weather is good you can go where you want by bike or on foot.
When the way is too long you can use public transports instead of taxis or cars.
Try to get as much information as possible about the place you are going to visit.
So you can take an ecological choice for your stay.
In addition to that you can also get informed about the rules and other important points you have to know to be a responsible tourist.
Not all the people have the same points of view as you. Respecting other thoughts permit peaceful cohabitations.
Lack of respect increases prejudices on the people from your country.
If you are a responsible tourist you have to look after the rules so you won’t have any problems with local laws.
There are also lots of prejudices about foreign people: you are a little part of a country and you represent it abroad.
Some poor people can‘t survive with their manual work.
So you mustn’t make profit from them, because they need your help.
Objects made by manual jobs are sometimes more expensive than the ones you normally buy at the supermarket, but they are often of a higher quality.
By buying them you can support the poor inhabitants.
