    but at least you should try.

    Can this "but" be replaced with "so"? The answer is only "but", but I think "so" also works.

    The meanings are different.
    It's not easy to understand other cultures, but (nevertheless/however you should at least try).
    It's not easy to understand other cultures, so (therefore you should at least try because it's good to try difficult things).
