Yes you can, but it’s always best to ask permission as a general rule. If you are visiting an open air museum or village, then in most cases you can snap away as you wish, however if you are visiting an authentic village, it’s always best to ask first. We always recommend visiting the authentic villages with a local guide. They know the ins and outs, the best times to visit and what is acceptable practice when it comes to photography. Usually the guides will take gifts of food products and supplies in exchange for images. It is not common practice to pay cash or give sweets etc. Your guide will know how this works and navigate this for you.
