Experience the local community as more than a tourist through work, study and volunteering. Make your vacation more than a vacation.
Travel the slow way. Go by bus, car, train, boat, or bike. Walk, hike or ride a horse or camel to the next town or the next country. Some of the best parts are missed by flying.
Save money without sacrificing the quality of your experience. Try the street food or the local produce and rent an apartment from a local, or do a homestay or farmstay.
