Get tips from locals

Be sure to bring your bring a map with you and be security conscious. Keep your personal belongings with you at all times. Don’t do anything that will draw attention to you. Try to blend in with the natives.
Visit local markets and shops

So, hit the local market in your travel destination and buy something you will value and cherish for years to come. It is best you get something that is not made for tourist.
Record your memories

Don’t spend a large chunk of your time on social media or surfing the internet, rather, go outside and explore the city.
