Do not Disrespect land and local cultures:

She has also shared her experience during her traveling to the north. She has been escaped for many weeks due to the bad behaviors of tourists. I (she) can understand people have the right to express but if they coming to these lands how they feel confident to affect the cultures or lands or even putting harmful activities by bringing their toxic habits in such a pure and innocents land.
