Poor air quality

Air pollution and fine dust pollution caused by car traffic have reached disastrous levels in developing countries, especially in the big cities.

  • Use local public transport as often as you can. That way, you will get to know the country and its people.

  • Take a scarf or something similar with you to cover your nose and mouth on an "open" drive in rickshaws or scooters.

  • Don't rent a car, rather take a taxi for some hours or for the whole day. In most cases, the price is about the same. However, by taking a taxi you do not only reduce the risk for accidents but help at the same time to secure a job. Furthermore, the driver knows his or her way around the place and will surely be delighted to give you a few Insider-tips.

  • Give preference to food and drinks from the region. Long transport routes don't only cost a lot of money, but also pollute the environment.
