Goverment Travel Advice
Know before you go
Travellers' Corner » Official Advice » Goverment Travel Advice
Your government cares for you. Yes - really; when you go abroad especially. Whilst overseas they have responsibilities towards you and towards the places that you visit. That's quite a frightening thought given that they have almost no control over you once you are gone. To mitigate the possible damage, the relevant government departments are now keen to educate their citizens before they go abroad so that they can look after themselves and know how not to casue offence to the locals.
As a responsible traveller you should care enough about these points to familiarize yourself with the advice offered. You may not follow it strictly at all times - but at least you should know what best practice is.
