Transcript: Spain's Travel Guide People of Spain WHAT NOT TO DO IN SPAIN Go and See a Bullfight A ban on bullfighting in Barcelona came into effect on January 1, 2012. Why? Because it's cruel. And, as any local might well tell you, bullfighting is a Spanish thing, and 'Catalonia is not Spain'. Though there will no doubt be a rush of people wanting to see a fight there before the ban comes into effect, should you really be going to see something the locals are opposed to? *Instead: There are plenty more places to see Bullfighting in Spain. 2. Mistake Girona or Reus For Barcelona Airport *Countless people fly to Barcelona Girona and Barcelona Reus each year not realizing they're both miles away from Barcelona. Doh! (In fact, it's only Ryanair that describes these airports as 'Barcelona' airports). They're both cities in their own right in their own separate provinces. Each is an inconvenient hour-long bus ride away. Instead: Fly direct to Barcelona, or fly to Girona or Reus but check out the local area first. 3. Feel You HAVE to Go Inside The Sagrada Familia *It's much more interesting from the outside. The views aren't among the city's best. Most of the building is under construction. And you'll be saving 12€. Instead: For good views of Barcelona, go up the Columbus statue at the bottom of the Ramblas. See also: Sagrada Familia, Barcelona 4. Go to The Beach Image: (c) Damian Corrigan Unless you like cigarette butt-infested, concrete sand, scummy water with plastic bags floating around in it and hordes of boisterous beer-swilling tourists, don't go to Barceloneta beach .But that doesn't mean there isn't anything to do in Barceloneta. Instead: You're better off taking a short train ride to Ocata or St Pol de Mar. 5. Eat On Las Ramblas Image: (c) Damian Corrigan Rip-off alert! Instead: There's far better and cheaper food just off Las Ramblas See also: Things to Do on Las Ramblas 6. Be Duped By Thieves Pretending to Show You A Football Move When approached by a complete stranger asking if you like Lionel Messi should he try and wedge a leg between yours in an apparent attempt to show you a football move, then cover your wallet and shout 'thief!' Instead: Politely say no, keep your hands on your wallet, and consider wearing a security belt under your clothes. See also: Barcelona Safety 7. Dress And Act Like a Tourist Walking around topless with a huge sombrero on and a towel thrown over your shoulder might seem like a perfectly good idea. But it really isn't. The less conspicuous you are, the less likely you are to be ripped off, robbed or, for that matter, taken seriously by that hot local chick. Instead: Just dress sensibly!

Take Pics of The Ramblas Statues Without Paying Would you like to stand completely still for hours on end being snapped by tourists and not get paid a thing? Well, then. Instead: Carry a little loose change and drop it in their box before snapping. You'll usually get a little show for your troubles.

Instead: Two words. The Metro. It'll get you everywhere, for a fraction of the price. Buy a T10 card, and each of the ten journeys will cost you less than a euro. More: Barcelona Metro 10. Respect Queues Ever. It's an Iberian thing. Instead: Push where necessary and don't take it to heart if someone nips in front of you. You'll do it back to someone else eventually.
