How not to be a tourist
Let's face it, it just isn't cool to be a tourist. Taxi drivers rip you off & you're the lowest of the low on the food chain. Yet every year millions of travellers fall into the largest trap of looking, acting & living like a tourist. You may score an A for studying your travel guide, but there ain't no smart like street smart.
Don’t stay near the airport. Hotels are cheap there because they’re far from anything you’d want to see or do. There are affordable options in the city and some research will help.
