Q: What’s the best way to get a taste of real local culture?

Michele says...
Many places around the world have greeter programs: non-profits that pair you with a local who has the same interests as you. Instant travel buddy! Check your destination’s official tourism website for availability. VIAmigo also matches up visitors and guides—some of whom require payment, others who just want to show off their hometown. Try chatting with the locals to find out what are the must-see sights and to get restaurant recommendations. B & Bs are a great place to chat with other travellers about what you should see. Find one at BedandBreakfast.com.
