I can't decide if this sentence is correct or not.
"DO NOT follow trend of the tourists, if you are a well-seasoned traveler, you should know this by now."
The above sentence is in reference to saving money while traveling. It just sounds awful. I believe there should be a "the" in front of "trend" and remove "the" in front of tourists.
What do you think?
You are correct about moving "the" in this sentence. It should be:
Do not follow the trend of tourists. If you are a well-seasoned traveler, you should know this by now.
I showed this as two separate sentences, since each is an independent clause. If you want them together in one sentence, it needs a semicolon instead of a comma after tourists.
