What can we as travelers do to respect and protect cultural heritage? How do we know if we are supporting the right tour companies and are doing what its best to the host country’s economy? Should we take tours to rural villages in Africa, visit slums in India and favelas in Brazil?
37 years of age and of travel have shaped me into the cultural traveler I am today. Does any of these 37 signs you are a cultural travel make sense to you?
Cultural travel should be about the experience, the journey, what you take from it (and by “taking” I mean learning something along the way).
