If you do decide to take our advice and book your tickets, then great! You will have a wonderful time there. And you can keep on reading for some helpful tips about what you should do once you get there and what you need to know before being in a country with a completely different culture.
So first of all, you should know about tipping in this country. A lot of Americans who go to different countries end up thinking that things will run exactly the same way there as well. One consistent problem is the fact that tipping in other countries is not the same as it is in the United States. It is often seen as being rude if you tip people where it is not common. So bartenders, waiters, driver services and such have their tip included in your total bill and you do not need to go out of the way to tip them for that. Some places like grocery shops and baggage carriers will still take tips, but general services will not.
You should also know that when taking pictures, especially of people you will need to ask for permission as it is considered bad behavior to take photos without someone’s consent. You also need to be careful to not take pictures of any official buildings there.
