4. Couchsurfing can help you find and meet people
Engage with the community called couchsurfing. This is the name of the website where travellers and hosts from all around the globe open accounts and look for each other. Enter the name of your destination and you will be given a long list of profiles of people from the country you are going to. Contact the ones you like most and ask if they are ready and eager to meet you when you arrive. Be ready to be asked to accept guests after you return back home. Couchsurfers are friendly and nice people.
