- Staying in a hotel or guesthouse: Choose a different accommodation location than your usual home, even if it’s in the same city. Opt for a luxury hotel, a charming guesthouse or an apartment in a new area of the city.
- Eating in local restaurants: Explore local cuisine and try restaurants you’ve never visited before. Choose dishes specific to the area or experience international cuisine.
- Visit tourist attractions: If your city has museums, art galleries, monuments or other tourist attractions, go visit them as if you were a tourist. Perhaps you will discover new details or appreciate more the history and culture of your city.
- Walks and Excursions: Take guided walks or city tours to learn more about the history and interesting stories of places you think you already know.
