I find it a awkward to go to places that don't get a lot of tourists. At least if you go to the popular destinations, the people there know how to deal with you. Going to other places feels like you're intruding on peoples lives in a way that they don't want.
So what's a good way to visit other places and learn about/experience their cultures without being disrespectful or disruptive to their way of life?

I've never left my home country and thus can't say anything from experience, but a few things are obvious:
>Read about your destination before leaving and ask for tips on international origami forums>Be quiet and try not to draw any attention to yourself>Be clean and leave places as you found them
