Today’s tip comes from Samantha Brown, a friend of mine and a big-time travel personality. In her profile for us, Samantha offered the following as her best travel tip:
“If I detect an accent from the check-in clerk or housekeeper I ask what country they are from and where they go to eat their home cooking. A hotel staff can give clues to the cultural aspects of a city that may be too small to be noticed or mentioned in travel guides. For instance, Orlando has a very strong Vietnamese population and therefore they’ve got some pretty good Vietnamese restaurants. Also, where the hotel staff eats is where the locals eat, which means it’s going to be less expensive than the popular spots recommended by concierges.”
