The United Nations recently released a new handbook on safe traveling. Billions of people crossed international borders and the number of people is only going to increase. The tips recommended are things such as; learning to speak a little bit of the language of the country you’re going to, be aware of laws or anything considered “taboo,” in a country or to it’s inhabitants. This article was written as a warning to tourists because in recent years, international countries have become upset with tourists flooding their cities, and countries.
