While in a foreign country, you are subject to its laws, so it is always recommended that you learn about the local conditions of where you are going. Even if you are going to be traveling with an escorted tour, senior travel group or travel club, it is important to have the most current and accurate information before you leave.
The local conditions of a country can change at any time, and it is in your best interest to get this information prior to traveling, including crime and security information, health and medical services, localized hot spots, the location of the U.S. embassy and anything else you're unsure about.
