More people than ever before are exploring the world, whether it’s for a weekend, a month or a lifetime, we all want to experience every kind of adventure imaginable, and the local people can make or break any trip. Leanne Capuano, author, photographer and creator of Travel Antics tells us which city to visit if you’re looking to mingle with the locals…

  1. Tokyo

It may not be the most budget-friendly city on the list, but there’s no place quite like Tokyo. The bright, neon lights and fast-paced atmosphere will leave you awestruck. It’s hard not to fall in love with a place that has something new to discover around every corner.

However, it’s the people who truly bring this one-of-a-kind-city to life. A simple stroll around this urban paradise will evoke some of the friendliest smiles you’ll ever see, and often when people hear an English-speaking voice, in the crowd, they’re more than happy to practise their own English. A trip to Tokyo will leave you with many memories of unforgettable people, you’ll remember long after you return home.

  1. Trieste

This may be one of the most underrated places in Europe. But, there’s no denying this Northern-Italian city is perfect for a little people watching. Although, many visitors make the two-hour journey to Venice, the locals of Trieste are far more hospitable and kind. Some struggle with English, but they’re still interested in doing all they can to converse with those who come to visit.

  1. London

Most know London as a hub of stuffy suits and towering concrete blocks and while approaching someone during rush hour is a bad idea, when you head into some of the more iconic parts, you’ll soon run into some of the most elaborate street performers and wacky characters ready to meet all who wish to speak to them.

  1. Amsterdam

Amsterdam is known for its laid back attitude to prostitution and drugs, but the locals love to meet new people, which is lucky as thousands make their way into the capital city of the Netherlands every year to indulge in the splendour Amsterdam has to offer.

  1. Salzburg

Although, Salzburg is often overshadowed by its capital counterpart Vienna, it still has so much to offer, be prepared for casual conversations about the surrounding beauty and natural charm of the city, as well as a fascinating history that can be found in every facet of life in Salzburg.

Local life is an important part of the travelling experience and these cities are the perfect place to mingle with the natives, or if you prefer, sit back and watch the subtle nuances of daily life, in an exotic city.
