Travelling from and returning to the UK
If you’re planning travel to The Gambia, find out what you need to know about coronavirus there in the Coronavirus section.
When arriving at a new travel destination, many times, what can happen is a cultural shock. And many times, certain things might seem unlogical, strange, or even rude if you don’t know the place’s tradition, culture, and behaviours. It also goes the other way around, as every nation has its own customs. A responsible tourist should respect the local way of life, customs, traditions and religion. You are a guest in the country, which will, however, welcome you with open arms. But in some places, tradition is still strong, so it is never bad to observe society’s values and moral principles and get to know the culture better. One of the most precious things when travelling is getting an insight into the unknown culture. Here are some things that will make you understand Gambian way of life better.
Nowadays, most of the salt produced in The Gambia comes from the sea, mines and wells. But in the past, the largest quantities of salt were produced along the creeks of The River Gambia, where the water salinity is still very high due to the closeness to the ocean.
