TIPS OF THE GOOD TOURIST
PRESERVING AND CARING FOR THE HERITAGE OF THE CITY
1. Learn about the rules and laws of the city and its communities
It is necessary, before traveling, to find out what are the rules and laws that currently govern each place or community to visit.
2. Do not abuse the use of heritage
We can enjoy our heritage and make use of it, but it does not mean that we can misuse it. Misusing heritage inevitably leads to the destruction of cultural resources and, therefore, the destruction of property.
3. Maintain order and cleanliness in the places we visit and minimize the generation of waste
Always maintain order and cleanliness in the places you visit, respect the environment, the city and the local community. In order not to generate excess waste, it is good that, as in our day to day life, we use reusable bags or bottles and avoid plastic tableware and cutlery. Also, look at how it is recycled in the city or in your own accommodation so that each waste is in the container that corresponds to it.
4. Let's preserve the heritage
Preserving our heritage is a legacy of our ancestors, the fruit of our history, our beliefs, our experiences and teaches us what we were, gives us identity. It teaches us where we come from and allows us to get to know ourselves better as a society and as individuals and, therefore, helps us understand the problems of the present.
5. Travel light and do not carry objects that could do some damage to heritage
Avoid carrying things that are not essential during the tour, avoid carrying objects that damage the material heritage (monuments, buildings, constructions) as well as what our history represents.
6. Respect the nature of the area
Try not to degrade the ecosystem of the area you visit, the natural spaces (exceed limited areas, throw waste), animals and plants.
7. Be considerate of the local population
Traveling involves interacting with the people of the place you visit and for this it is necessary to know, understand and try to adapt to their character, habits, rules and customs. We must avoid imposing our lifestyle wherever we travel.
8. Contribute to the local economy
Consume products and services typical of the area and that boost its economy, that is, that involve other people and companies in the territory. For example, eating in restaurants that offer typical meals made with local products, looking for a handicraft souvenir, enjoying festivals and traditions, or staying in establishments managed by the local community.
9. Be patient, kind and respectful of the customs of each locality
Follow the established rules of each tourist site you visit, have empathy for others during the trip and respect the customs of each town you visit.
10. Travel safely and take care of the people of the town you visit
