It’s always fun to get a little off the beaten path when you travel, but it’s not always so easy to figure out how to do it. Most travel guides will send you to the touristic spots and highlight a few local cuisines.

The tips below are either things I’ve learned myself while living and traveling abroad or they are articles from the locals themselves.
