While you will have transport options like private cars and taxis at your disposal you need to know that not only do they contribute to more congestion and traffic pollution but also emit harmful gases into the environment. So, choose options like walking, cycling, electronic and public transportation in general.
  • Support all clean city and clean water-sanitation projects: Throw your trash in its designated place, instead of everywhere on the streets. As an eco-friendly traveler, you need to promote green as much as possible in the city to motivate not only fellow tourists but local people. When you visit any tourists attractions especially city parks, make sure you do not throw any food wrapper and do not just stop at that but if you see any trash, pick it up and throw it in the dustbin.
  • If possible, volunteer in local programs: Help them make the city a better place. It will help you understand the struggles of local people as well and you can interact with them on a personal level.
  • Help the economy by buying certain things from local markets: During your trip to the city, you will come across small shops and food stalls in almost every lane of the city. If you want to have an unforgettable experience in the city, then buy goods and foods from these shops. This will not only help you to save a lot of money but you will be supporting a lot of local people who are dependent on their small businesses to earn a livelihood.
  • Be patient and respect the local cultural diversity: Talk to the residents, learn about them, and then let others know about the place they may never know without visiting the city.
