I regularly walk through The Rocks and Circular Quay in Sydney, both tourist hubs of the city, and honestly, you can ALWAYS tell who is a tourist.
Sometimes it's obvious (those who take hiking sticks with them to walk those slippery and dangerous paved streets of Sydney XD ) and sometimes it's less so, but the absolute give-away are two people, walking together (mostly in sensible shoes, but not always) VERY, VERY slowly.
My aim is to get to the train station as fast as possible, so the speed difference is always very obvious. So, if you want to blend in, walk fast. XD
On the other hand, I imagine most of them have jus
t spent a long day, probably walking everywhere, so I guess I could cut them some slack. ^_^
