Code of Ethics for the Responsible Traveler

  • Travel in a spirit of humility and with genuine desire to meet and talk with local people.
  • Be aware of the feelings of the local people; prevent what might be offensive behavior.
  • Cultivate the habit of listening and observing rather than merely hearing and seeing or knowing all answers.
  • Realize that other people may have concepts of time and have thought patterns which are different than yours.
  • Instead of seeing the exotic, discover the richness of another culture and way of life.
  • Get acquainted with local customs; respect them.
  • Remember that you are only one among many visitors; do not expect special privileges.
  • When shopping through bargaining, remember that the poorest merchant will give up profit rather than give up his/her personal dignity.
  • Spend time each day reflecting on your experiences in order to deepen you understanding. What enriches you may be robbing others.
  • Make no promise to local people or new friends that you cannot implement.
