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.
