When we travel around on a holiday, we tend to enjoy it visiting the local tourist attractions, accommodating at trusted hotels and eating at recommended restaurants. But most of the times we don’t get those experiences of the city like the locals do. We are tourists or visitors who cannot feel the way a native would. But we shouldn’t avoid trying. If you want to gain experience of any city and learn the likes of the locals then follow the following tips:

Research: When you have picked the location that you wish to travel to, make sure you do your research on the destination. Use the internet, any kind of sources or ask around about that country and location and gather maximum information and facts about it. Some say information is power, and I couldn’t agree more. I’d add information makes you smarter and gives you the opportunity to be flexible and open to try new things other tourists wouldn’t. You simply know what to expect when you reach there.

Dodge the hotels and inns: Think a moment before booking a hotel or an inn at your destination. Try finding a home of a local who could temporarily lend his lodgings or offer you a room as a paying guest. There are some services available in different cities and countries who could find such a home for you. When you live with the locals only then you sense the local touch and experience what natives do.
