Live Like a Local
Pauline also recommends avoiding tourist traps by eating at neighborhood restaurants where the locals eat. Here's how to find them:
  • Never ask a hotel for recommendations. They are often paid to drive customers to certain restaurants.
  • Go up to someone on the street and ask where they would eat.
  • When in a country that speaks another language, avoid places with menus in English.
